Dry Face Skin Care: Your Guide On How To Get Hydrated Skin

The easiest way to keeping your facial skin hydrated is by using a gentle cleanser, put on sunscreen everyday and always use a moisturiser to help retain moisture in your skin. If this doesn't work, there may be a different cause.

Dry skin is a very common skin problem and can be more common during those cold and windy seasons.

Flaky, thirsty or rough facial skin needs to be rehydrated, preventing dry skin from ruining your day.

Below we'll give you the top tips to keep your skin smooth, soft and hydrated, leaving dry skin a thing of the past.

Here is what's causing dry skin on the face:

One we see most often is that your skin doesn't have enough oil or water.

However, depending on the weather such as the windy and cold seasons, this can also be a common factor for dry skin on the face. 

Aging and excessive exposure to sunlight can also trigger dry skin.

So have a think about your everyday life and determine which part may be affecting you, so you know the right course of action to take for your dry skin.

 

Symptoms of dry skin on the face:

As we previously mentioned, dry skin can be a symptom of a wide variety of things, these included:

  • Aging
  • Dehydration
  • Other skin conditions
  • Medications you may be taking
  • Deficiencies in minerals and vitamins
  • Environment

 

Aging

Getting older can result in dry skin.

As time goes on, the natural production of oil in your skin lowers, leaving your skin less hydrated and drier.

 

Dehydration

Drinking water can go a long way so make sure you're drinking plenty of keep your skin hydrated.

Avoiding things like alcohol will also help keep your skin hydrated, as alcohol can dehydrate you, giving you dry skin.

 

Other skin conditions

In some cases, dry skin can be a symptom of other skin conditions such as:

  • Rosacea
  • Eczema
  • Skin allergy or irritant dermatitis
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Psoriasis
  • Genodermatoses
  • Seborrheic dermatitis

These other skin conditions can show up as dry, rough, patchy or flaky skin.

 

Deficiencies in minerals and vitamins

Ensuring you have sufficient vitamins and minerals can also help you alleviate dry skin. Such as:

  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin A
  • Zinc
  • Iron

Treating dry skin on the face

Before we dive into all the skincare products that will be great for dry skin, let's first talk about lifestyle changes you can make, as they're just as important.

Your shower temperature

Do you like to shower in really hot water? It may feel great on your skin, but hot water can actually dry out your skin as well. Try showering in luke warm water or even cold water. 

 

Don't scrub your face, wash it gently

When you're washing your face, although it may seem like scrubbing it hard may be more beneficial in cleaning your face, can actually cause irritation.

Use cleansers that don't have harsh ingredients such as: alcohols, fragrances, retinoids, sulfates and alpha hydroxy acids.

This reduces your risk of skin irritation and inflammation.

Instead, look for ingredients that help retain moisture within your skin, such as: hyaluronic acid, ceramides, lanolin and paraffin.

 

Don't wash your face too often

This can be a little tricky, especially depending on your lifestyle. However, washing your face too often can also lead to dry skin. 

If you're experiencing very dry skin, try washing your face at night only before you go to sleep. 

This can help retain moisture and oils in your skin.

Also, while exfoliators may seem beneficial to remove dead skin cells and the dry skin patches on your face, use this sparingly and avoid using it on a daily basis. Once or twice a week is plenty.

 

Use a moisturiser

This is very important for those wanting to clear up their dry skin. So make sure you're using it after you've washed your face, both morning and night.

You can opt to use a moisturiser + sunscreen combo if it makes things easier, but just remember not to use this at night time (there is no sun afterall). 

Look for ingredients such as: ceramides, hyaluronic acid

And avoid ingredients such as: alcohols & strong fragrances.

 

Dry face skin care: Products to use today

Now onto the fun part, the products! There are several products that can help clear dry skin on the face, but not all products are suited.

We're going to focus on products that repair your skin and help to hydrate and rejuvenate your dry skin as you sleep.

Here are our recommendations to clear up dry skin faster than ever:

  • Cleanse your face with your favourite facial wash. A great cleanser to try is Cerave's Hydrating Cleanser. This will help to retain moisture while also leaving your face fresh.
