Dry skin is an incredibly common condition. In fact, 60-70 percent of people experience some form of dry skin in their life. But where does dry skin come from?
Your skin is a very unique organ. In order to stay healthy, it produces a natural oil called “sebum”, primarily responsible for protecting your skin and hair’s hydration.
Just like your other systems, sebum production is a balancing act. When your body produces too much sebum, acne can develop. Too little and you may end up with dry, itchy skin.
Any skin problems can be frustrating, but dry skin can be especially trying. Dry skin may be itchy or flakey, making it difficult to camouflage with makeup. It can also appear rough, dull, or sunken in due to lack of hydration. While the lack of sebum production is a frequent cause of dry skin, the following may also contribute.
- Dry air
- Lack of water
- Unbalanced skin pH levels
- Preexisting skin conditions
- Cold weather
- Too much cleansing
- Harsh exfoliants or skin products
No matter the skin condition, it’s important to investigate the root cause of the irritation. Your skin is not one-size-fits-all. What was the cause for one person’s dry skin may not be the cause for another’s. Do your own research undergoing any major treatments.
That being said, there is one tip we can give you that will work no matter your skin type: moisturize. Moisturized skin is hydrated skin, and hydrated skin is the key to a softer, brighter, younger-looking face.
Not sure what moisturizer to pick? We’ve got you covered. Aloe Infusion is the perfect solution for dry skin. And it’s all down to a few of our top ingredients!
The first reports of aloe being used for skin care can be traced back to ancient Egypt where it was regarded as a source of beauty, health, and immortality. Talk about a glowing review!
Today, aloe is probably most well known for healing sunburns, but did you know it’s an incredible source of hydration as well? That’s why it’s the main ingredient and namesake of our moisturizer. But how does it work?
When we say aloe vera is a powerhouse, we mean it. It’s made up of 75 nutrients, 12 vitamins, 20 minerals, 18 amino acids, and 200 active components, all while being composed of 99% water! When applied to the face, these agents go deep within your skin’s layers, hydrating from the inside out. This gives it the ability to heal not only dry skin but eliminate skin texture, itching, wrinkles, and more.
Shea butter comes from the Vitellaria tree, or the “Shea tree,” and has been used for centuries in African beauty routines. It’s made of natural fatty acids that moisturize the deepest layers of your skin and improve elasticity. This makes up for any lack of sebum production and leaves your face supple and hydrated.
Grape Seed Oil
Extracted from the seeds of wine grapes, grape seed oil is highly recommended for it’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and healing properties. In fact, the antioxidants found in this oil are 50 times stronger than those in Vitamin C and E. It is rich in fatty acids and can repair damaged skin, as well as relieve itching and swelling caused by drying or irritation products.
Kukui Nut Oil
You may have never heard of Kukui Nut Oil, but it is an essential part of many coveted skincare products. Made of fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants, this oil moisturizes and promotes healing without leaving a greasy or sticky film on the skin’s surface. Not only that, but unlike other oils, it won’t clog pores or cause acne. It’s a win-win!
