While oily skin gets a lot of industry attention, it is not the only skin type that is challenging. In fact, many people struggle with dry skin. To maintain dry skin properly, a targeted skin care regimen is recommended. Using the right products for your skin type will make the biggest difference in your skin’s appearance, tone and health.
To determine whether you have dry skin, there are specific traits to look for. You probably have dry skin if you notice tightness when washing your face; this tightness can persist with exposure to sun or other harsh environmental conditions. Dry skin is also prone to patches of flakiness or redness and can wrinkle more easily than other skin types.
Age plays a big part in the onset and exacerbation of dry skin. Skin that is soft and smooth receives the designation of baby-soft skin; there is a scientific reason that babies have such soft and supple skin. Young skin is full of a substance known as hyaluronic acid, a major constituent in the cellular matrix of both collagen and elastin. Collagen is a supportive agent in your skin’s structure, while elastin is the main factor in your skin’s ability to recover or bounce back.
The body has the highest amounts of hyaluronic acid as a newborn, and the substance slowly decreases as a person matures. When added as an ingredient to skin care products, hyaluronic acid helps your hydrate skin tissue and aids in cellular lubrication. It can also lead to a reduction in problems that are especially common in people with dry skin, such as itching, burning and overall dryness.
