Telltale Signs You Have Very Dry Skin

April 01, 2016
Determining your skin type can feel like an ongoing process, mostly because it is just that: An ever-evolving one. Your skin will not be one type for life; it might not even be one type within a year. You could have oily skin in the summer, a common perception as it gets warmer. And you could have dry skin in the winter, a common skin concern for most people as the air becomes more cold and dry. Your skin’s needs change and so it is important that you are aware of those needs.

If you’re not sure of your skin type or you think your skin type may be changing, the best thing you can do is schedule an appointment with a dermatologist. It’s a good idea to check in with your dermatologist once a year so that you can get a professional’s opinion on your current skin type and check and address any other skin concerns you may be having.

Very dry skin can be your most-typical skin type. To determine if this is the case: First identify whether you have dryness consistently or if it is something you only experience from time to time. If you’ve had very dry skin from childhood through your adult years it could mean that your skin produces a lower amount of sebum, your skin’s natural oils. Mature skin may also experience more dryness. The common signs of dry skin include rough, scaly or flaking skin. If you have dark skin, you may notice an ashy or gray appearance in some areas.

Very dry skin can be uncomfortable, but regular dryness can also contribute to a lackluster complexion. When it comes to addressing your very dry skin you must keep moisturizing as a top of mind skin care priority. Always start with fresh, cleansed skin and then layer your hydration efforts. First apply a hydrating serum after cleansing while skin is still damp. Then, use a day and/or night cream with hyaluronic acid, try Revitalift® Daily Volumizing Concentrated Serum . A naturally occurring substance in the skin, hyaluronic acid, maintains moisture by binding up to 1000X its weight in water. Finally, seal in all of that added moisture with facial oil, which can act as a barrier to lock in hydration for extended periods of time.

Dryness can affect the look and feel of your skin – so don’t be timid in taking control and ramping up your hydrating skin care routine. Seek help from a dermatologist and stay diligent in your daily moisturizing regimen.
