dry skin: causes and treatments

Dry skin is a common condition that affects millions of people. It can be caused by many different factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, and environmental conditions. The condition can also make you more susceptible to other health problems, like infections and rashes. There are several ways to treat dry skin; one of the most effective is using the right products for your skin type.

best products for dry skin

  • A good moisturizer with SPF is a must-have for dry skin. 

  • A water-based serum can help protect your skin from drying out, as well as keep its natural balance of oils and moisture.

  • Keep your hands off the hot water when washing dishes or taking a shower—water evaporates quickly on dry skin, so opting for warm rather than hot will help keep it hydrated by retaining more moisture in the air.

face washes / cleansers for dry skin

  • The right face wash can help you get rid of dead skin cells and keep your skin healthy.

  • Your face is a sensitive area, so look for hypoallergenic products.

  • Look for an oil-free product that doesn't contain alcohol or fragrance.

moisturizers for dry skin

Moisturizers are designed to hydrate skin and repair its surface. There are many different types of moisturizers available, including:

  • Creams. These are thick, oily and oily lotions that contain water-based ingredients. They're often inexpensive but can take longer to absorb into the skin than other types of moisturizers. Creams are recommended for people with dry skin and those who live in humid climates because they prevent moisture loss through evaporation (the process by which water turns into vapor).

  • Lotions and creams tend to be thicker in consistency than gels or oils, which makes it easier for them to stay on your face without evaporating quickly; however, this also means they may take longer than others do when it comes time for them to soak into your skin completely -- especially if you have very thirsty patches!

serums for dry skin

Serum is a concentrated form of moisturizing ingredients, designed to be applied directly on the skin. It's typically used in the morning and evening after cleansing, toning and exfoliating your face.

Serums are usually lightweight and easily absorbed into your skin. They're great for all skin types, especially those with dryness concerns. Serums will often focus on providing moisture while also brightening dull or discolored areas of the skin (like melasma or sun damage).

Some serums can help to improve other visible signs as well; some may help with fine lines or wrinkles around your eyes or mouth, while others might target enlarged pores or uneven texture issues like acne scars or acne spots.*
