Lubrication is the key to bringing relief to people whose microscopic-sized pores have done them wrong. Because not enough oil is being secreted, skin can feel uncomfortably taut and just plain miserable. So to cure dry skin woes the goal is to seek out products that trap moisture in and prevent the evaporation of water.
Tip: As a dry skin sufferer, what you don’t want to do is take extended showers or baths – keep them limited to a maximum of 10 minutes. The longer you stay in, the more dehydrated your skin becomes.
Sometimes one product just isn’t enough to treat this bothersome skin type, so Arbonne created the Arbonne Calm Skin Care Set ($121, arbonne.com). The four products in this set include non-irritant, non-comedogenic Gentle Daily Cleanser, Gentle Daily Moisturizer, Soothing Facial Serum and Soothing Eye Gel, which all calm and soothe sensitive, dry skin.
Lumene Vitamin C+ Dry Skin Comfort Cocktail ($21.99, ulta.com) treats your skin to a little something different…Arcitc cloudberrry seed oil and caring cranberry seed oil which protect your skin from stress factors. This comforting cocktail also contains skin-softening vitamin A and Vitamin C of course, to protect skin from environmental abuse. Get ready to have skin skin that feels as soft as a baby’s bottom.
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Premiere Intense Moisture and Renewal Activation Cream Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 ($92, elizabetharden.com) is a rich moisturizer with sunscreen meant for day use and doesn’t weigh your face down. It contains Ceramides (skin-replenishing lipds) and retinols to support collagen production which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If skin creams and serums alone aren’t bringing you the necessary relief, then bring in the big guns…the Zensation 3-in-1 Skin Rejuvenating Device ($245, zensationbeaute.com) – an Infrared light treatment that stimulates skin for a better tone and texture. Use this device along with the skin-plumping Zensation Deep Moisturizing Gel ($85, zensationbeaute.com) which replenishes moisture over time. Ingredients include Lavender Essential Oil to purify, tone and balance, Provitamin B5, Red Alga, Sodium Hyaluronate and Marine Hydrolysed Collagen – all ingredients that make this product good for use on your face and hair because they deeply moisturize and protect. And lastly, Damask Rose Water was added to leave skin feeling soothes refreshed. Good for Dry, Normal, Combination, Oily, Sensitive, Acne and Aging skin.
HOW TO USE: ‘Gel’ can be used in multiple ways, but when used with the Rejuvenating Device on a cleansed face. Apply a generous amount of product to dry skin and then gently massage the device over the face and around the eye area to target fine lines, until the Gel is completely absorbed.
