Dry skin can have a significant impact on both the skin’s appearance and comfort level. From an appearance standpoint, dry skin can lead to a dull, rough, and flaky complexion, making fine lines and wrinkles more visible and aging the look of the skin beyond its years. In addition, dry skin can also cause a lack of elasticity, resulting in sagging and drooping.
From a comfort standpoint, dry skin can sometimes be itchy, uncomfortable, and even painful in some cases. When the skin is dry, it can feel tight, rough, and irritated.
At Charette Cosmetics, we understand how dry skin can negatively impact your life and your confidence, which is why we offer a variety of tried-and-tested skin care products for hydrated, supple skin.
Understanding Dry Skin And Its Causes
Several factors can contribute to dry skin, including genetics, environment, and lifestyle. Each of these elements can affect skin hydration in different ways:
Some people may be more prone to dry skin due to their genetic makeup. For example, specific genes can affect the skin's ability to produce and retain moisture, leading to a higher risk of dryness and dehydration.
- The environment can also play a significant role in skin hydration. Dry air, low humidity, and extreme temperatures can all lead to dehydration and dryness of the skin. Harsh soaps and cleansers or over-scrubbing can lead to dryness.
- Lifestyle factors such as a poor diet, a lack of hydration, and subpar skincare habits can also impact your skin’s hydration. A diet low in essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals and insufficient water intake can cause dry skin.
Our Tried-and-Tested Best Skin Care Products for Dry Skin
Hydrated, supple skin starts from within. However, achieving hydrated skin goes beyond just drinking water and eating healthy. It involves a good skincare routine of natural products that promote hydration.
Protect Your Skin from the Sun
Exposure to the sun can damage your skin and lead to dehydration. Using SPF 30 daily can help protect your skin from harmful UV rays and prevent moisture loss. When choosing a facial sunscreen, ingredients like hyaluronic and lactic acid can help keep the skin moisturized.
One of the most essential products to add to your skincare and self-care regimen for supple, hydrated skin is Protect + Preserve. This lightweight, gentle sunscreen with SPF 50 provides superior protection for supple, smooth skin. We designed our sunscreen with lactic and hyaluronic acids, and a clinically preferred concentration of niacinamide helps to visibly brighten areas of discoloration and blemishes.
Use a Hydrating Cleanser
A good skincare routine is crucial for achieving hydrated, supple, youthful-looking skin. Washing with a gentle, hydrating cleanser can help remove impurities from your skin without stripping away natural oils. Look for cleansers that contain hyaluronic acid or glycerin, which attract and retain moisture in the skin.
At Charette Cosmetics, one of our best tried-and-tested skin care products for dry skin is Restart + Refresh Gentle Cleanser. It is packed with antioxidants and citrus extracts to gently exfoliate and cleanse the skin. This creamy cleanser gets rid of makeup, dirt and impurities, while maintaining the skin’s natural moisture barrier and pH.
While over-scrubbing your face can cause dryness, properly exfoliating can achieve hydrated, supple skin. Regular exfoliation remove dead skin cells to improve the absorption of moisturizers and other hydrating products.
Charette Cosmetics formulated Illuminate + Purify Cleanser, which is gentle enough to do cleans and clarify the skin while strengthening its natural barrier. With a combination of 2% salicylic acid, lactic acid and hydroxyphenyl propamidobenzoic acid, this exfoliating cleanser aids in unclogging pores and removing surface oils.
Apply a Hydrating Moisturizer
Hydrating moisturizers are essential for hydrated, supple skin. Tried-and-true ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin help attract and retain moisture in the skin, keeping it hydrated throughout the day.
Charette Cosmetics created Nourish + Soften Moisturizing Lotion , a lightweight formula for all skin types that leaves skin feeling soft, well hydrated and protected. This sheer, oil-free moisturizer smooths and tones skin with witch hazel and protects skin against moisture loss with glycerin. It is also enriched with green tea to help soothe and calm the skin.
Use a Facial Mist
Facial mists are a great way to hydrate your skin, especially if you work in a dry environment or spend a lot of time in air conditioning. Hydrating toner mists help to soothe, soften and rejuvenate skin while redefining the complexion. Natural ingredients in facial mists can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plump the skin and encourage new cell growth.
At Charette Cosmetics, we created Active + Tone Antioxidant Mist with natural extracts like cucumber, rosemary and melon to improve skin health while reducing puffiness and swelling and boosting hydration. This cooling mist can be sprayed on your face morning and night as part of your daily skincare regimen.
Tips for Maximizing Results with Skin Care Products for Dry Skin
In addition to selecting the right skincare products, there are other steps that help ease dryness:
Drink Plenty of Water
The first step to getting hydrated skin is to drink plenty of water. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day is recommended to keep your body hydrated. Water is essential for maintaining moisture levels in your skin; dehydration can lead to dry, flaky skin. Drinking water can also help flush out toxins from your body, which can contribute to clearer skin.
Eat a Healthy Diet
Eating a healthy diet is essential for well- hydrated skin. Consuming foods that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals can help nourish your skin from within. Foods that are high in water content, such as fruits and vegetables, can also help keep your body hydrated. Examples of hydrating foods include watermelon, cucumbers, oranges, and berries.
Use A Humidifier
Dry air can exacerbate dry skin, especially during the winter months when indoor heating is turned on. Using a humidifier can help to add moisture back into the air, which can in turn help to keep your skin hydrated.
Avoid Hot Showers
Hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and flaky. Instead, opt for lukewarm water when washing your face or taking a shower to help preserve your skin's natural oils.
Apply Skincare Products To Damp Skin
Applying moisturizers and serums to damp skin can help to lock in moisture and prevent further moisture loss. After washing your face or taking a shower, pat your skin dry and then apply your skincare products immediately.
Layer Your Skincare Products
Layering your skincare products can help to boost hydration and improve their effectiveness. Start with lightweight serums that contain hyaluronic acid or other humectants, and then follow with a moisturizer to seal in the hydration.
