- Dry skin tends to display early signs of aging, faster than normal skin;
- To slow down skin aging, a skincare routine should focus on skin hydration;
- It is important to use gentle formulations of skincare ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol
A routine for dry skin shouldn’t rely solely on the work of skincare products. While they can help you achieve visible results, it is important to stay hydrated from the inside - and drink plenty of water.
Maintaining a consistent and continuous skincare routine is key, especially when it comes to dry or dehydrated skin. Give your skin a much-needed boost in hydration by choosing the best face moisturizer to nourish it and protect it from external aggressions, such as pollution.
Avoid the sun exposure
The best way to avoid sun damage, which can speed up aging and skin discoloration issues such as age spots, is to stay out of the sun between 11am and 3pm when it is at its strongest. When staying sheltered isn’t possible, a sunscreen lotion is your best ally.
Wear SPF daily
No matter what the weather has in store, wear an appropriate sunscreen or moisturizer with SPF that suits your skin type and needs, even indoors. UV rays can go through glass windows so better stay safe. Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours when out and about.
LA ROCHE-POSAY WOULD RECOMMEND…
Always use SPF
La Roche Posay products are especially designed for sensitive skin and, when it comes to sunscreen, Anthelios Comfort Cream SPF50 is specifically formulated for dry skin. It's non-greasy and water resistant sunscreen lotion, developed for the face, but suited for the body to protect from UVB and UVA rays
Adopt a sensitive night cream
Focusing on wrinkles, skin homogeneity and UV induced hyperpigmentation, the Redermic R Retinol Anti-Aging Night Cream encourages cell regeneration while gently exfoliating and creating new layers of skin
Boost skin hydration
“Is hyaluronic acid serum good for dry skin?” Yes! The brand new Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum is all about intense hydration. Skin feels immediately more hydrated and within a month you can expect more elastic, more supple and less visibly wrinkly skin. This hydrating serum offers a welcome boost for dry skin, giving it bounce and resulting in a fresh complexion.
“Hyaluronic acid effectively plumps out the skin and, by doing so, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improving skin hydration and texture”, says Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Sam Bunting.
