What's the science?
Dry skin is a very common skin condition characterized by a lack of the appropriate amount of water in the most superficial layer of the skin, the epidermis. While dry skin tends to affect males and females equally, older individuals are typically much more prone to dry skin. The skin in elderly individuals tends to have diminished amounts of natural skin oils and lubricants. Areas such as the arms, hands, and particularly lower legs tend to be more affected by dry skin. Environmental factors, such as humidity and temperature, have a profound effect on the amount of water retained within the skin. For example, cold, dry air when heated by a furnace will produce dry skin by evaporating moisture on the skin. Frequent hand-washing and sanitizing causes evaporation and dryness. Dry skin may also be a side effect of some medications as well as a byproduct of certain skin diseases.
The epidermis is normally composed of fat (lipid) and protein. The lipid portion of the epidermis along with specific epidermal proteins (for example, filaggrin) help prevent skin dehydration. When there deficient proteins and/or lipids the skin moisture evaporates more easily. As skin becomes dry, it also may become more sensitive and prone to rashes and skin breakdown. The medical term for dry skin is xerosis. Simple prevention and treatment measures are very effective in the treatment of dry skin. Basic dry skin prevention steps include avoidance of harsh soaps and chemical cleansers. Treatment generally requires more frequent and regular applications of bland emollients and moisturizers. Untreated, dry skin may result in complications, including, eczematous dermatitis, secondary bacterial infections, cellulitis, and skin discoloration. Fortunately, dry skin is usually mild and can be easily remedied.
Tips for your Skin Type...
Avoid over washing
Excessively washing your skin, particularly with harsh soap based products can strip the skin of natural oils required to retain moisture and elasticity within the skin, Ultimately resulting in dryer skin.
Avoid alcohol based toners
Alcohol not only dehydrates our bodies after a few too many glasses of wine, it also dehydrates our skin. Instead try our ROSA DAMASCENA ESSENCE MIST full of the most precious and rarest essential oil, Rosa Damascena and its pure and delicate hydrosol. Especially created to rejuvenate and restore mature, dehydrated or sensitive skin. Smoothens and brightens dull and tired skin.
Never skip out on facial serums
Using the right facial serum—which should be layered underneath your moisturizer—can seriously help keep your skin hydrated. Especially if you use a serum that’s formulated with Sodium Hyaluronate which holds 1000 times its weight in water, water, binding vast numbers of water molecules in between skin cells for lasting moisture and skin that is supple and plump (check out ALPHA GLOW FLASH FACIAL).
Avoid steaming hot showers
When you bathe in water that’s too warm, it can strip your skin of essential oils, causing it to become even drier. Obviously, that’s the last thing you want if you have dry skin. The next time you hop in the shower, turn down the dial and cleanse your skin in lukewarm water instead. Sure, it might not be quite as relaxing, but your skin will certainly thank you!
I always repeat. The results are amazing. I am in love with this serum .
Irreplaceable. Transforms skin
My skin has never looked better. Trusted products and brand.
Quenching the thirst of my skin in a second, I love this product
Lovely to use , silky smooth.
Leaves skin smooth and soft.
This cream is so easily absorbed, not too heavy and just the right moisture. I’m loving it ! I use the alpha glow flash facial under it and they seem to be working well on my eye area.
I love this amazing dermal microniser. Micrometre Particles create a sense of a rose petal sliding over your face. It brings out radiance, beauty and happiness . It is so easy use and such a wonderful experience. Thank you, Ada.
Not normally a fan of mists but this is different
This has really changed the appearance of my skin, it's got a lovely light weight texture but seems to still moisturise deeply so my skin feels super hydrated yet really glows
This toner mist is perfect for any skin. Mine is so sensitive and I have zero issues! It feels great and I love having a spray instead of having to use a cotton ball. I highly recommend!
Probably the best skin care product in the market
I stopped this product for couple months and tried something different but new product did not give me a good result as Cleansing dew. Cleansing dew much more helped my dry and dull skin improving. I started to love this product even more.
These have become the staples of my skincare routine
I could feel my skin soften, could see it’s brighten no more pores visible!. My skin is so smooth now!
001’s water shield is one of a kind - I love its cooling sensation especially in the summer heat, and once absorbed it creates a smooth film over the face which serves as the perfect base for makeup. Will be stocking up again soon!
