Hello Serenitree Squad! Who has tried our products? Speaking of dry skin, today Serenitree wants to share some tips and tricks to overcome dry skin! Of course, less hydrated skin can bring various problems and discomfort to us. So, let’s check out this article further for the solution!
What is Dry Skin Problem?
When our skin is not properly hydrated, it can often become dry. The outer layer of the skin/epidermis contains natural oils and water as a protective barrier. If we don’t get enough water and moisture, our skin will be vulnerable to free radicals! As a result, symptoms such as scaling or cracking will appear. It’s also possible that you can feel itchy which is very annoying!
People of all ages and all skin parts of our body can become dry depending on the condition. So what are the factors that cause our skin to lack moisture and hydration? Here are some possibilities:
- Genetic factors
Everyone has different skin types such as dry skin, normal skin or combination skin.
Environmental conditions or cold weather are often a factor in skin getting dry more easily.
The older we get, the less oil and collagen production is produced. Not to mention the influence of hormones during menopause.
- Use of harsh skincare
If you use skincare with chemical content that is quite harsh, it will cause the risk of dry skin and other effects. Especially if the content is not suitable for our skin type.
- Sun exposure
Skin that is often exposed to the sun without the use of sunscreen has the potential to cause spots, dry skin or skin cancer!
There are many more factors! It turns out that there is not only one cause of lack of hydration and moisture in the skin! Therefore, to overcome it, we must first understand what the influencing factors are. After that, just look for a solution.
In addition, you also have to know what ingredients in skincare we must avoid. Take a look!
Skincare Ingredients to Avoid
Serenitree always encourages you to always check the ingredient label on skincare products. This can help you avoid any negative effects that may occur! Here are some examples of ingredients that you should avoid:
- Alcohol: This ingredient strips the skin of its natural oils, making dry skin even drier.
- Fragrances: Chemical fragrances, especially in large quantities, can cause skin irritation and dryness. Moderation is key! To be on the safe side though, you can use natural alternatives like essential oils.
- Sulfates: Sulfates, such as Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), can also strip the skin of its natural oils and are notorious for irritating the skin. That’s why SLS is not commonly used in skincare.
- Retinoids: While retinoids can be effective in treating various skin problems, they can also be harsh and a factor in dry skin. Make sure to incorporate these according to your skin type and needs!
- Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs): AHAs are exfoliating acids that work to exfoliate the skin. Using them too often or on dry skin can lead to further irritation!
- Benzoyl peroxide: Benzoyl peroxide works to shrink pores and calm inflammation on the skin. However, if the skin is not compatible, irritation and dryness may occur.
Those are more or less some of the ingredients you should keep an eye on. Serenitree also recommends that you avoid activities such as: Exfoliating your skin too often or washing your face too often. These activities will definitely strip your skin of its natural oils!
So, always be careful Serenitree Squad! Although a skincare ingredient has good benefits for the skin, not all skin will be suitable. To avoid the risk, you should check the ingredient label, do a patch test, or switch to natural ingredients like Serenitree!
Let’s move on to discuss Serenitree’s tips for dry skin!
Serenitree Tips: Bye Dry Skin!
The many factors that cause dry skin make us vigilant to maintain good skin health. As the saying goes: “Prevention is better than cure”, Serenitree would like to give you the complete tips and tricks to prevent dry skin.
It’s easy, you just need to do the steps below:
- Shower with cold water
We must maintain the temperature of the water when bathing, try not to be too hot and not too long because it can remove our natural oils. If possible, cold water temperature is better as it soothes the skin and tightens the pores.
- Using Serenitree natural Body Wash
Natural ingredients in skin cleansing products can minimize the risk of dry skin, such as Serenitree Body Wash. Make sure to avoid harsh or chemically harmful body washes!
- Using Serenitree natural Body Lotion
The concentration and texture of Serenitree’s lotion is thicker than most lotions. But that’s because our lotion is rich in natural oils that can provide more hydration to the skin. We need to use moisturizer regularly to avoid dry skin. We recommend using it after a shower!
- Use sunscreen
To protect your skin from UV rays, it’s important to wear sunscreen in any weather. UV exposure can cause dehydrated, dry skin, and even premature aging! So prevent it from now on and use sunscreen.
- Wear smooth clothes
Rough clothing can often irritate the skin due to excessive friction. Over time, the skin can become irritated, itchy and dry. Materials such as cotton are more recommended because they are gentle on the skin and can maintain skin moisture.
