How often are you frustrated by dull or dry skin? We all know how uncomfortable that can be, and your overall complexion can look dull as a result. Understanding why your skin gets like this will help you to treat it and fall back in love with your complexion. Maybe you struggle with dry skin under eyes or elsewhere on your face. Dry skin ear irritations are super common too, along with flaking. Continue reading to learn about the most common causes of dry skin, what you can do to avoid those triggers, and how you can restore your skin with an added boost of hydration.
WHAT CAUSES DRY SKIN?
On a good day, the outer layer of your skin captures humidity and holds onto it tightly for optimal hydration. But, the capacity of our epidermis decreases over time. When we get older, our skin cells age too and have a harder time holding on to hyaluronic acid. We need hyaluronic acid for its super hydrating abilities. This powerful natural substance is found in your body and it has the impressive ability to hold onto 1000 times its molecular weight in water.
Another major phenomenon that causes dry skin is the environment around us. For example, Healthline Media reports that “exposure to dry weather conditions, hot water, and certain chemicals can cause your skin to dry out.” Dry weather often means lots of sunshine, which can be good for your mental health but bad for the health of your skin. Without proper sun protection, ultraviolet radiation from the sun aggravates and dries out your skin. The sun damages your collagen and elastin cells which leads to even more loss of water in your skin. Everyday life can also be super harsh on our skin without us even noticing.
REMEDIES FOR DRY SKIN UNDER EYES, EARS OR NOSE
Before you get too disheartened, the American Academy of Dermatology Association recommends that “when low humidity causes dry skin, making some skin care changes can relieve and heal dry skin.” That’s where we come in. Are you at the point where your skin is really dry and you feel your regular skin care routine is not enough? Facemasks for dry skin are the perfect cure! You can give your skin an added boost of hydration and radiance with our Hydrating Face Mask. An effective remedy, the mask contains hyaluronic acid (obviously) but it also has some fun fruit and vegetable extracts including avocado extract, apricot fruit extract and grape extract. You’ll love the combination of intense hydrate and a refreshingly cool feel. To remedy your dry skin, we recommend applying the Hydrating Face Mask once per week for around one month.
