Dry skin is a common skin type, especially in high latitude, cold weather areas prone to such skin problems. Dry skin lacks moisture and feels tight, itchy, or flaky. It is usually caused by a weak skin barrier that does not retain water effectively. The repair process of dry skin is hydration, barrier repair and water retention. First, use hydrating face serums and moisturizers that contain ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or ceramide to lock in moisture. Then look for face serum products that contain essential fatty acids and cholesterol to strengthen the skin’s protective barrier. Finally, ingredients such as petroleum jelly or shea butter can help form a protective seal and prevent moisture loss.
