You skin sheds thousands of dead cells on a daily basis, which can slow down as we age and cause of a build-up of dry, itchy skin.
Detroit, MI (PRWEB) December 17, 2014
Holly CaSaroll, skin care expert and founder of FACE, an award-winning beauty clinic, is detailing several tips for individuals who suffer from dry, itchy skin during the winter season.
1. Exfoliate: “Your skin sheds thousands of dead cells on a daily basis, which can slow down as we age and cause a build-up of dry, itchy skin,” says CaSaroll. “AHA exfoliates adds moisture to the surface aiding in the repairing of sun damage and dryness. BHA exfoliates have anti-inflammatory agents beneficial to skin that is oily, acne and blackhead prone. I recommend exfoliating up to four times per week.”
2. Hydrate: Humectants work as a moisture magnet, pulling it from the air to the skin. According to CaSaroll, if there isn’t more than 70 percent humidity in a house then there isn’t enough moisture for the body to do its job properly. “Invest in a humidifier,” she says. “I also recommend using products containing hyaluronic acid because it’s water-binding and holds 1,000 times its weight in water which is vital for skin moisture.”
3. Use soothing agents: Looking for soothing ingredients such as aloe, oat bran, chamomile, cucumber, rose hip oil, burdock root, licorice root, and glycyrrhetinic acid. Incorporate toner or a spray mister in skin routines. “This step is often underrated, misunderstood and forgotten,” says CaSaroll.
4. Apply antioxidants: Antioxidants protect the skin from harmful free radicals. They also help protect from exposure to the sun, skin damage, signs of aging, and change in pigment. “Look for products that contain vitamins A, C and E, CoQ10, green tea, grape seed extract, plant oils, soybean sterols, and beta-glucan.”
5. Repair and protect: Products designed to repair increases moisture levels by providing an actual physical barrier, which prevents the loss of water from the epidermis. Look for products that contain pharmaceutical-grade mineral oil, ceramides, Shea butter, beeswax, silicone, cholesterol, fatty acids, and vegetable oils (think avocado or olive oil). “My favorite product is the new Avene Xeracalm. It is the most advanced cream for dry and itchy skin,” she says.
