As we age, so does our skin. Mature complexions can be a hard reality to deal with, but it doesn’t have to be your reality. At Skin Perfection, we work to help reduce the signs of aging. Our products contain some of the best ingredients to help regenerate aging skin.
If you have mature skin, you must understand how to care for and treat it, so your skin is as healthy as can be. Learning what products and ingredients work best to help mature skin will help you better understand how to improve your skin and give yourself the reality of a visibly younger-looking complexion.
Dry skin comes in two varieties, but it can also arise due to the natural aging process. Dry skin can be from the naturally dry skin, no matter where you live, and then there is dry skin that comes from living in a dry environment.
Women who live in desert regions, for example, will naturally struggle with dry skin more often than females that live in humid climates. However, some women will have dry skin even if they live in the most humid regions of the world. This means that their skin cannot hold onto the moisture it naturally creates and needs moisture applied topically.
An over-tight, uncomfortable feeling characterize dry skin, often accompanied by flaking, cracked, or reddened. When skin becomes dry, it becomes very textured, revealing every fold and crevice. Even if the skin is not wrinkled, it can look wrinkled because it does not have adequate moisture.
Dry skin can become painful and can also exacerbate certain skin conditions if it is not appropriately moisturized. It occurs when the cells cannot hold onto the sebum that naturally occurs. Or when the skin does not produce enough sebum.
Sebum is the oil that contributes to acne, but it also keeps our skin looking fresh and young. Cells in healthy complexions collect and hold this moisture. Cells in dry skin cannot perform the same function, or rather, there is not enough moisture in the skin for the cells to collect and utilize.
Dry skin is most common on the face, hands, elbows, and knees, though it can occur anywhere on the body. It is common for most women to have some dry skin from time to time due to exposure to the elements or after a shower or bath. However, women with an actual dry skin type will have dry skin all the time, sometimes even after they have moisturized the skin.
Dry skin is most common after adolescence and after early adulthood, as the skin begins to mature. This is because we often produce far too much sebum in our youth, blocking pores and creating an oily sheen. After this period of too much moisture, your complexion might provide too little. Also, as the skin ages, it is less able to produce the sebum it needs, resulting in dry, dull skin.
The first thing to do is to stop using soaps that zap moisture from the skin. Unfortunately, this is a common theme in commercial products. Unfortunately, it is a scientific fact that soaps leech moisture away from the skin without replacing it.
Pick a cleanser that is fruit-based or contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid provides hydration while cleaning the surface. Next, find a moisturizer that includes the world's best moisturizing ingredients derived from fruit to help restore the ability to hold moisture better.
