Dry skin is described as a skin condition that contains a low amount of hydration and is often marked by an uncomfortable tightness, itchy, and scaly sensation. Although dry skin has numerous causes, it isn’t usually serious and can be alleviated with the right products.
Those who suffer from dry skin will often notice scaling, flaking, irritation, and cracking and one of the main causes of dry skin is low moisture in the air or washing in water that is too hot. Dryness can also be caused by health-related issues, as well as aging and other environmental factors, such as overexposure to the sun.
Those with mature skin or demanding skin will often find dryness to be a common problem when it comes to skin-related issues. Someone who has dry skin can also experience sensitive skin as the skin loses the protective layering needed to lubricate and protect the skin. The good news is that with the right skin care, healthy, hydrated skin is just a product away. Here are some ways that Janssen Cosmetics can help steer you in the right direction to a more hydrated complexion.
Heal and Protect
One of the biggest culprits of dry skin is overexposure to UVA/UVB radiation. Although some sun rays has been proven to be beneficial, helping to trigger the development of vitamin D in the body, too much sun can lead to chapped, burning, peeling, itchy red skin and premature aging, which is why our Sun Shield is a great way to moisturize and protect the skin. If you like sunbathing, After Sun Lotion cools, soothes and nourishes your skin with natural oils.
If you want to go a bit deeper, Vita Care Deluxe Ceramide cream works wonders for those with extremely dry skin, which helps to rebuild lipids that have been lost and improves the appearance of rough skin. If you are already experiencing age spots, and an uneven skin tone, our Vitaforce C Cream stimulates collagen and elastin production and helps brighten the skin for an even, more youthful tone.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
It’s so important to hydrate the skin. So much so that without hydration, your skin would become scaly, crusty, and unsightly. If you have dry skin, hydration is especially important since you don’t receive adequate moisture to the skin. Hydration can be obtained in many ways, such as getting enough water, a great way to ensure that your cells are going to get the nutrients they need. Exercise is another great way to get circulation going.
Our Hydrating Skin Complex works deep within the layers of the skin to hydrate from within, smooth wrinkling caused by dryness, and improves the overall feel, structure and radiance of the skin. Then you may top that with the Caviar Luxury Cream, which is like black gold for the skin, increasing cell turnover, protecting the skin from free radicals, and inspires smoother skin.
Rejuvenate and Illuminate
If your dry skin is causing a dull complexion, sometimes, all you need is a bit of exfoliation. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells that are in the way of revealing fresh, vibrant skin. Exfoliants come in many forms such as a scrub, which often contains tiny granules to slough away depleted skin, as found in our Brightening Exfoliator. Other forms are contained in the form of a gentle peel, such as our Bio-Fruit Gel Exfoliator, which helps increase cell turnover by gently peeling away the top layer of the skin. This action is a non-abrasive way of improving the skin’s moisture content, leading to brighter, softer complexion.
Scrubs and peels are a great way to get to the true, radiant you and should always be performed after washing your skin with a great cleanser, such as with our Multi-Action Cleansing Balm, which can also be used as a makeup remover, SOS balm for relieving dry skin spots, and as a moisturizing mask. Prepping the skin prior to exfoliation helps to soften and wash away dirt and grime so that the product will work it’s best
