Combat dryness with the perfect routine.

We all know how a weather shift can really affect the skin and combatting this early in the colder season will save your skin from the onslaught of dryness, itchiness and sore patches you skin has been used to in the past. With the perfect routine, we unravel how to combat dryness.

When talking about dryness we are focusing in on dehydration/hydration.

WHAT IS DRY SKIN?

Dry skin becomes prominent when the skin doesn’t retain a sufficient amount of moisture. The skin naturally produces an oil called sebum and when experiencing dry skin, the oils that naturally replenish the skin is minimal, leaving behind dry, itchy or even flaky skin. Often the change in weather can cause dry skin and as the cold winter air means low humidity, the outer layer of the skin reflects the air that is around it, meaning that the skin’s overall moisture is reduced and left craving hydration.

HOW TO TREAT IT?

The most important resolution for treating dry skin is to retain the moisture. Adding a rich moisturiser into your skincare routine is vital for hydrating the top layers of your skin cells and sealing in the moisture. The Space Anti Age Day Cream is infused with vitamins, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, the formula was developed to strengthen, revitalise and hydrate the skin all the whilst protecting the skin from environmental damage. Generally, the thicker the moisturiser, the more effective the product on dry skin. Another way of increasing the moisture in your skin is to retain what your body naturally produces. Using lukewarm water instead of hot water when showering will prohibit the water from stripping away the skin’s natural oily layer as well as avoiding alcohol products across your body and skin routine. Combined, these factors will keep your body’s natural oils and adding rich moisturisers immediately after your routine will seal any moisture and add to where your skin needs it.

As Dry Skin can be linked to dead skin, we advise exfoliating the skin to rejuvenate the cells
