Dry Skin




What is dry skin?

Dry skin is prone to redness, itchiness, flakiness, dullness and overall discomfort. Contrary to dehydrated skin, the cause of dry skin usually lies in a person’s skin type and, therefore, it is mostly a hereditary condition. Although, there are also a variety of external factors that may contribute to or worsen dryness, like living in a harsh climate for example, or extremely dry air or taking very hot baths. In most cases, dry skin is not cause for concern, nevertheless it is important to give your skin the proper care and attention.

How do you treat extremely dry skin?

While it might seem obvious, the first and most important thing to do to treat dry skin is to apply moisturizer at least once a day, and especially after getting out of the shower or bath. It is important to reapply it various times during the day, especially if you experience itchiness or see that your skin is flakey. If your skin is extremely dry, it might be helpful to use a humidifier in your home, as dry air and heating are among the main external factors that can make dry skin worse.

How can I prevent dry skin naturally?

Aside from applying a rich moisturizer religiously, there are a few dry skin remedies that can help keep dryness under control. Try limiting the time you spend under the shower or in the bath and keep the water warm, never hot. Avoid using harsh soaps and always pat yourself dry. In the coldest months of the year, always wear gloves while spending time outside. Other natural remedies for dry skin include making DIY facemasks with rich, nutrient-dense ingredients such as avocado, olive oil, oatmeal or aloe vera, all ingredients that soothe and nourish dry itchy skin.

What skincare is best for dry skin?

The best moisturizers for dry skin are emollient creams that contain healing ingredients, such as ceramides, glycerin, shea butter and cocoa butter. While generally speaking the same may be said regarding the best face moisturizers for dry skin, things are not that simple. Applying very thick and occlusive creams to your face can lead to other problems, such as clogged pores and breakouts. This is why serums are our best ally to combat dryness on the face. For example, BL+ The Serum tackles dryness (and dehydration) thanks to its key ingredient: a blend of patented Blue Lagoon Silica and Blue Lagoon Microalgae, which nourish the skin while strengthening the skin barrier.
