Effective ways to treat dry skin
When we are born our body is made up of around 75% water. The skin retains around 30% of that water, but this ability to retain hydration can diminish with age and other extrinsic causes.
Dry skin on the face and body is a very common problem with aging skin and requires changing our daily beauty routine to match our changing skincare needs. If you have dry skin, you are more likely to have other skin problems such as wounds and acne. Your skin might also itch or become flaky, gray, or dull, or you might develop wrinkles or eczema.
The main causes of dry skin
In the majority of cases, dry skin is caused by environmental factors like excessively cold or hot weather, indoor central heating, and low air moisture. However, aging can also contribute to dry skin as we lose hyaluronic acid as we age.
These natural sugar compounds retain water and moisture levels in our skin, but they gradually deplete as part of the aging process. Sun damage can also break down our skin’s natural collagen and elastin fibers, leaving us with dry, tired, and wrinkled-looking skin.
The symptoms of dry skin
Sufferers of dry skin may find that their makeup becomes patchy in dry areas. The skin might feel tight, itchy, and taught. Blackheads and spots can still be a problem for people with dry skin, although the overall complexion may be ashen and dull. Dry skin may age the face since wrinkles can become more prominent if the skin is less hydrated.
Although the skin may be producing enough oil, sometimes this is not enough to keep the skin moisturized. In this instance, the skin may be flaky, red, sensitive, tight, and itchy.
4 best cosmetic procedures for dry skin
1. Dermal fillers
Dermal fillers stimulate collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid works alongside collagen and elastin within the skin to provide tissue elasticity and volume, but without enough hyaluronic acid, the connections between the collagen and elastin will weaken and production will slow down. This leads to a loss of facial volume, as well as skin dehydration. Alternatively, injecting dermal fillers into the tissue can restore any lost hyaluronic acid, and promote the growth of collagen and the production of elastin. Not only will your skin be more hydrated, but it will also be much healthier, with a firmer structure. This will also help replace lost volume, and dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles too.
- A type of dermal filler, Sculptra stimulates collagen and elastin production, which are vital components that improve the skin’s firmness and make it structurally consistent. It can help to treat wrinkles, fine lines, nasolabial lines, the area around the smile lines, hollow cheeks, wrinkles on the chin and décolletage, and dry skin. The main purpose of Sculptra Fillers is to regenerate the skin from the inside. It also enhances the skin’s underlying structure while improving facial contour. The result is firm, smooth, and fresh skin with reduced signs of aging.
- If you are facing problems with your dry skin, just opt for a Juvederm injection and all your problems will be solved.
- Hyaluronic acid, which is widely recognized as one of the elements of the extracellular matrix and has the capacity to hold a lot of water (up to 1,000 times its own molecular weight), is a well-known ingredient that aids in the maintenance of the skin’s optimal hydration.
- Restylane gently smoothens your skin from deep inside for lasting moisture. This results in improved skin quality and elasticity and puts back structure and firmness into the skin for natural luminosity and to smooth and nourish tired, deflated, or dry skin.
Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that restores and rejuvenates the skin. It works by penetrating the top layer of skin with micro-needles which creates pin-point injuries in the deeper layers. This then triggers the body’s natural wound-healing response and stimulates new collagen and elastin formation.
This results in a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines, moisturizes the skin, tighter and stronger skin, and an improvement in texture and tone with pigmentation and scarring minimized.
3. Chemical peels for dry skin
Dry skin occurs when the skin’s natural moisture barrier is compromised, leading to reduced hydration and a dull complexion, often accompanied by flakiness, tightness, and increased sensitivity.
Chemical peels are used to help exfoliate the skin, removing the damaged outer layers and revealing a new, smoother layer underneath.
This treatment is fully customizable and depending on the type and concentration of the peel, it can range from mild to deep exfoliation, meaning you can remove just the outermost skin layer or couple of them, based on your skin’s needs.
