Skin Care for Dry Skin: 3 Ingredients that Really Work!

Categories : BI MY, Skincare

Some ingredients deserve to be in the hall of fame. Retinol does wonders for anti-aging; clay and charcoal absorb oil and dirt. But when it comes to the best skin care for dry skin, you can’t go wrong with these three ingredients

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar that acts like a super moisture magnet. It can hold up to 1,000 its weight in water, so it doesn’t just temporarily plump up your skin but soaks every skin cell with much needed hydration.

It’s naturally found in our skin but as we grow older we produce less of it – that’s why our skin starts to look dull and flaky when we reach our thirties. The good news is that it’s found in a lot of skin care for dry skin, and it doesn’t feel as greasy as heavy oils and creams. Use it to make your skin feel smoother and softer, and protect your skin cell structure from bacteria.

If hyaluronic acid is a moisture magnet, think of ceramide as your skin cells’ super glue. It holds skin cells together to prevent moisture from escaping and heal any breaks in your skin cell barrier. When your skin barrier is weak, you’re more prone to sun  and pollution  damage, wrinkles, and skin diseases like atopic dermatitis.

That’s why you need this in any skin care for dry skin or sensitive skin. It can help heal your skin and slow down the appearance of lines and wrinkles, but it can’t reverse the damage that’s already done. If you need your skin care regimen for dry skin to have anti-aging powers too, then pair ceramides with niacinamide and peptides.

B-complex vitamins

Now for the third in our list of skin superheroes: the B complex vitamins. They don’t just restore moisture, but fix the problems that often come with having dry skin. They calm the skin, boost collagen production (remember, dry skin is more prone to wrinkles!) and brighten dull and uneven complexion. It also controls your oil production and can make your pores look smaller. If you want to try retinols but you’re afraid it’ll irritate your dry skin, Vitamin B can help minimize the redness and irritation. Is there nothing Vitamin B can’t do?

To get your daily skin dose of Vitamin B, look for skin care for dry skin that contain niacinamide. It won’t hurt to take a beauty supplement that contains B-complex too! Your hair, nails and skin all need this vitamin.
