Dry skin: care tips

Do you know what type of skin you have? Sometimes it is difficult to judge which type our skin belongs to, so for this reason we have prepared a simple and clear guide that will help you confirm if your skin is really dry. Find out everything about dry skin - what are the characteristics of dry skin, how to deal with the challenges of this skin type and which care products to choose.

How to recognize dry skin?

Dry skin type can be easily recognized if the skin looks tight and matte throughout the day. Pores are barely visible on dry skin, and the skin is often rough, cracked and scaly to the touch. Dry skin produces too little sebum, has a damaged hydrolipidic barrier and is chronically lacking in lipids. Acne and comedones rarely appear on this skin type due to the lack of sebum, but very dry skin is often sensitive and can be accompanied by unpleasant sensations such as itching and prone to redness. Dry skin type can be genetically determined, and it is common in adulthood when the function of the sebaceous glands that produce sebum decreases.

How to care for dry skin?

Rich, nourishing textures are recommended for daily care of dry skin, which will supply the skin with the necessary lipids and restore its natural elasticity.

Cica-Cera cream with ceramides is the ideal choice for protective care of normal to dry skin, while for very dry, sensitive skin we recommend Úna neutral cream , which at the same time deeply nourishes, restores and has a soothing effect on the symptoms of dryness and sensitivity. If the skin is dry and mature, we recommend using the Lunar peptide cream , which contains an optimal ratio of panthenol and shea butter and has a reparative, protective and anti-aging effect.

Dry skin is an ideal candidate for a layered care routine , so with each mentioned product you can combine a moisturizing serum or serum emulsion and an oil booster such as Nara. Naro is a 100% vegetable squalane that moisturizes and nourishes and softens the skin in a bioidentical way on sebum. It is very practical to use, as the desired amount can be mixed with any cream to further enhance its nutrition.

In addition to basic care, dry skin needs gentle cleansing that will not further damage the barrier function, so it is recommended to avoid aggressive cleansers, soap and alcohol in cleaning products. Cleansers like Atomic Oil Pre-Cleanser and Amphibian Gel are formulated with an emphasis on mild ingredients that protect the skin from further drying.

What is the difference between dry and dehydrated skin?

When defining skin type, it is important to distinguish dry skin type from dehydration. Namely, it is a common mistake to consider dehydrated skin as dry, but there is a big difference. Dry skin is a skin type that is generally unchanging and chronically lacks lipids, while dehydration is a temporary condition that can appear on any skin type due to the influence of various factors: overly aggressive cleaning and use of the wrong products, too frequent exfoliation, but also weather factors such as wind and cold. Dehydrated skin needs to be replaced with moisture, which we can influence by using adequate humectants such as panthenol, hyaluronic acid and ectoine.
