Dry Skin is fairly common, with most of us expereincing some sort of dry skin issue at some point in our lives - particularly in the winter months!
We have provided a range of wonderfully moisturising products to keep your skin feeling soft and smooth.
Our skin is the first line of defense against environmental and climactic factors, and our skin is a living and breathing organism. When there are changes in the weather or temperature, or drops in humidity levels, it can leave the skin feeling dry, dehydrated and uncomfortable due to lack of moisture. A good analogy is a brick wall – when attacked by extreme weather and the elements it can lose its mortar and crumble – very dry skin is basically like a brick wall where the mortar is missing!
It is important to act on dry skin patches quickly, as the skin is susceptible to further problems without sufficient lipids to support it.
Topping up with healthy moisture – both internally and externally – is usually enough to alleviate dry skin. Drink plenty of healthy fluids and use a dry skin cream or lotion that locks in moisture, but allows the skin to breathe. We believe natural plant oils offer by far the best dry skin treatment because they are fully compatible with the skin – their molecules are small enough to be absorbed deep into lower layers of the skin, they offer useful vitamins and they allow the skin to breathe. The same cannot be said for petroleum, paraffin or mineral oil creams which offer no nutritional value and simply ‘sit’ on the skin.
Odylique Ultra Rich Balm is a wonderful, natural treatment for dry skin all over the body, with specially formulated ingredients that help to provide intense hydration for dry, distressed and dehydrated skin. The Balm really helps to protect the skin from the drying effects of changing temperatures and the cold. Hydrating raw shea, beeswax, extra virgin olive and coconut oils all help to lock in moisture, while sea buckthorn supports skin renewal and cell structure.
The Superfruit Concentrate is also an exceptional serum for skin repair, hydration and boosting moisture. With hydrating and vitamin-replenishing avocado, protecting pomegranate and cell-renewing rosehip, this is a wonder-product that is ideal for very dry and dehydrated skin to help bring back vitality. Keeping the skin nourished, moisturized and replenished is key to helping both improve and prevent the problem of dry skin.
Remember also not to over-moisturize, as this can make the skin ‘lazy’ and not produce enough of its own sebum. Little and often as needed is the key. If you suffer from very dry skin all the time, dermatitis or eczema you may want to read more. Consulting a nutritionist for possible supplements to the diet may also be advisable.
