Dry skin is one of the most common skincare concerns for both women and men. Not only can dry, flaky skin be uncomfortable, but it can also cause your complexion to appear dull and lackluster, as light reflection is hindered by uneven flakes of dry skin. Fortunately, there are several quick and easy ways to increase facial hydration and treat dry skin.
1. Customized Skincare
The first step in getting and maintaining smooth, hydrated skin is to work with a skincare professional to create a customized skincare regimen designed for your specific skin type and needs. Dry skin tends to have a damaged skin barrier, which allows moisture to easily escape. The right medical-grade skincare routine can restore your skin’s natural barrier and ability to retain healthy moisture.
On the other hand, it is equally important to avoid products and ingredients that can worsen dry skin, such as foaming cleansers, harsh exfoliants and drying alcohols.
HydraFacial has made a splash in the skincare industry, and for good reason. This three-step facial deeply hydrates, cleanses and exfoliates the skin and can be customized to treat specific skin concerns that often come along with dry skin, such as a rough, uneven texture, wrinkles and blemishes. HydraFacial is non-irritating and gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin.
Our nonsurgical treatment team loves performing HydraFacials, and our patients love seeing the dramatic results. Many of our patients come in for a monthly facial so they can continue to keep fine lines, wrinkles, and oily and congested skin at bay.
While you’ll want to avoid harsh at-home scrubs to exfoliate dry, sensitive skin, you can help to accelerate your skin’s natural desquamation, or exfoliation, process with DiamondGlow®. Using customizable diamond tips, DiamondGlow gently removes dead flakes of skin and debris from the surface of your skin, while also delivering specialized serums to the deeper layers for intense hydration.
