What Not to Do If You Have Dry Skin:
Dry skin itself is hard enough to deal with. But things will only get worse when it is improperly managed or especially when it becomes aggravated by improper skincare habits. The reality is that it’s not only be unattractive but can also be extremely uncomfortable. While it might seem like a simple and straightforward issue to fix, (like choosing a random lotion off the shelf) the truth is that there are so many conflicting pieces of information arise, that most people end up doing far more harm than good for their skin.
In the simplest form, Natural Solutions are always your better bet. This is where basic common sense is applied. If you put chemicals on your face versus natural formulated products, chances are you are far less likely to have any kind of reaction with the natural ingredients.
Thankfully, proper dry skin care does not have to be difficult, challenging, or confusing. By following just, a couple simple principles, you can hydrate and even heal your dry skin for good.
When it comes to dryness, there are two main principles to adhere to:
• To deliver rich/hydrating moisture
• To get rid of or prevent inflammation
When these two principles are followed, chronic dryness is eliminated, and the skin is restored to its former soft, glowing, and hydrated state. If you have dry skin, you do not want to use harsh toners, soaps and other substances that strip the skin of its protective barrier. These only make the skin more irritated and inflamed and prevent the skin from adequately holding onto moisture. Instead, you want to use skincare ingredients that strengthen, repair, and nourish your skin’s natural protective barrier. That is exactly what we focus on while formulating Theraprina’s products. These ingredients include high quality cold pressed plant lipids, polysaccharide rich plants such as Aloe Vera and specially formulated skincare ingredients like our Plant Stem Cells, Astaxanthin, Fermented Seaweed Collagen, Wild Geranium, and Botanical Complex to name a few.
Plant lipids keep the skin cells lubricated and flexible rather than brittle and easily penetrated by foreign invaders. They also maintain the proper Ph balance of your skin’s natural acid mantle which further protects the skin from harmful foreign substances and allows it to function properly; of these proper functions, holding onto moisture is one of them. Plant lipids also contain a wide variety of moisturizing and inflammation busting essential fatty acids.
Plant derived ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Silk Amino Acids, and our Botanical Hyaluronic complex improve dry skin in a few different ways. Aloe Vera is a humectant, meaning it attracts water to itself. It also is proven to hold water in. Silk Amino Acid complex prevents dermal water loss and keeps the cellular structure of the skin strong and integrous.
If you have dry skin, it’s extremely important to make sure your products include plenty of high-quality moisturizing plant lipids. As mentioned before, try using products that include specialty ingredients like Aloe Vera, Botanicals, or Amino Acids for enhanced moisture retention and restoration.
