Everything You Need To Know About Dry Skin Type
The first step in solving any problem is to understand everything about it, and that’s what we are going to do here for everyone who has dry skin. The medical term for it is xeroderma, and if you have dry skin then you already know it because there can be no doubt when you touch your face and your skin feels rough and flaky. Dry skin can be a result of genetics where the sebaceous gland doesn’t produce enough sebum or oily substance that keeps your skin moisturised, or usually it’s because of external factors like the environment or the chemicals in the products you use. Not only does dry skin make your skin look scaly and rough, but it also causes other issues.
How Does Dry Skin Affect Your Face
Having dry skin means your skin doesn’t get the moisture and nutrients it requires to be healthy. Besides making your face look dull and lifeless, dry skin is known to age your skin prematurely. This is because the sebum that is present to keep the face nourished and hydrated is not produced in sufficient quantity. Your skin ends up losing its elasticity and you can see fine lines and wrinkles forming. Another problem that people with this skin type experience is pigmentation and discolouration. Dark spots are easily formed, making your skin look uneven.
How To Treat Dry Skin
Dermatologists at Kaya suggest that you don’t use any product without making sure it’s suitable for your specific skin type. Here are some tips on what you should do to help deal with dry skin.
No Hot Showers
When your skin is dry, it means it doesn’t have the moisture it requires, and having a shower with hot water makes the condition worse. It steals the natural oils from your skin making it even drier. It is advised that you don’t unnecessarily expose your skin to hot water for too long.
Remove The Impurities From Your Skin
Exfoliating is important to get rid of the dead skin so that new skin can grow. But, with dry skin its necessary to not over exfoliate and worsen the condition. Kaya Creamy Exfoliating Rinse is a facewash for dry skin which contains antioxidants that help get rid of the impurities from your skin and makes your skin soft. The derma beads gently exfoliate and make your skin look even; it also protects your skin against premature aging.
Protect Your Skin
All skin types require a regular use of sunscreen, but with dry skin it’s even more important. The Kaya Daily Moisturiser Sunscreen SPF 30 hydrates your skin and protects it from the harmful UVA-UVB rays which are one of the main causes of wrinkles and lines. This sunscreen prevents tanning, and is tested and formulated by expert dermatologists.
Keep Your Skin Moisturised
The obvious solution to dry skin is to moisturise it externally so that your skin can get what it needs. Kaya White Protect Body Lotion is a 3 in 1 formula that evens your skin tone, hydrates it and protects it from the sun to prevent any further pigmentation issues. Kaya dermatologists recommend you make this a part of your daily morning routine. You can use Kaya Purifying Nourisher if you have an acne prone skin to moisturise your skin. This moisturiser is a non-greasy formula which gets absorbed easily by your skin and makes it soft and supple.
You can also try the Kaya Signature Face Therapy – Ultra Rejuve facial. It cleanses and exfoliates the skin. Also, the natural Licorice and Arbutin extracts give radiance to your face. The treatment ends with a luxurious Cocoa mask that hydrates your skin and makes it look bright and refreshed!
