Do you have dry skin?

Are you curious about what causes the feeling of pull and its scaly appearance? We have all experienced to some degree in our lives dryness on our skin, either on the face or body, some worse than others. What causes dehydration on the skin and what products will help you to correct it?
We answer your most SOS questions about dry skin.

# 01. What is dry skin?
Dryness can easily occur on the skin at any time and make us feel quite uncomfortable, but it can be corrected with the right products. Common symptoms may include a tingling sensation in the skin, rough texture, itching, peeling, fine lines or cracks, and redness.

# 02. What does dry skin look like?
If the skin seems to be peeling, very red or visibly rough, then it is probably dry. However, dry skin is not always initially visible to the naked eye, if your skin feels tight or rough then these are the early warning signs that you will experience dryness on your skin.
# 03. What causes dry skin?
Some people have naturally dry skin or skin that is easily prone to dryness, but there are several factors that can also cause dryness even in those who have not experienced it again. Common factors that trigger dryness include exposure to dry weather and hot water. Some ingredients can also cause dehydration of the skin such as e.g. the alcohol.
Dry skin is more common during the colder months when humidity levels are low, winds and central heating can worsen dryness. It is also common in the elderly because as we age our skin produces less oil, collagen and hyaluronic acid (ingredients that maintain skin hydration).
# 04. What does dry skin need?
Dry skin needs moisture. Make sure all the products you use will intensively moisturize your skin, even cleansers and toners. Prefer products with moisturizing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, rose oil and grape seed oil. Choose products for "nourishing" and "hydrating" the skin.

# 05. Can dry skin cause acne?
Yes. If your skin is dry, then the natural barrier of the skin is at risk, which means that bacteria can easily enter and cause acne outbreaks. In addition the damaged skin is not strong or healthy enough to be able to fight the bacteria or heal, so this can lead to some unpleasant acne outbreaks. So it is even more important to keep your skin hydrated. Moisturized skin is healthy skin and healthy skin can keep acne away.
# 06. Why do I have dryness around my eyes?
The skin around the eyes is thin and the thinnest on our face. This means that they are more prone to dryness, no matter what skin type we have, so it is often the first area to dehydrate as well as the first area to begin to show fine lines and breaks. As we grow older our natural moisture levels decrease, so it is important to use eye cream or serum to keep the skin around the eyes hydrated.

# 07. How can I moisturize my skin?
It's all about choosing the right products and applying them right. Use a mild cleansing lotion or mousse. Then apply the face toner that will prepare the skin properly to accept the ingredients first of the moisturizing serum and then the moisturizing cream and finally the product with oil for the face. Apply them in this order every morning and evening to increase moisture levels and prevent the skin from losing moisture.
If dry skin persists, invest in disposable moisturizing masks and use 2-3 times a week at night.
# 08. What is the best ingredient for dry skin?
There are many wonderful moisturizing ingredients that will help hydrate dry skin, but one of the best is hyaluronic acid - each molecule of this ingredient can maintain 1000 times its weight in water.
# 09. How to do makeup on dry skin?
Ask any make-up artist what is the most important step of makeup and he will answer that it has to do with proper skin care. It is absolutely necessary when it comes to dry skin. Make sure your skin is well hydrated with serums and moisturizers before you even start your foundation. Prefer light-textured base products that will not emphasize dry skin, as well as make up, foundation and bronzers in liquid form and not powder. Always spray at the end with a cool adjustment spray to prevent fine lines and breaks.
