Help, I have dry skin...!

Do you recognize that feeling? Your skin feels tight and your pores are hardly visible? It gives you beautiful skin when you're young. But as you get older around your late twenties, dry lines and expression wrinkles appear faster. And when you apply something on it, it's hardly absorbed, making your skin shiny and feeling greasy (due to what you've applied). All this probably means that you're dealing with dry skin.

In this article, I'll describe the causes of dry skin, what you can do with both skincare and nutrition, and what you should pay attention to in order to prevent your skin from becoming even drier.

The downside of dry skin is that it leads to more wrinkle formation due to a lack of sebum production, and this skin is also more susceptible to moisture loss. You could say that dry skin lacks water, fats, and nutrients from the inside out, and it's more susceptible to various external influences. Think of weather conditions, wind, cold, and heat from the sun.

What are the causes of dry skin?

To truly understand your dry skin, let's discuss some causes below.

  • Your genetics: The first cause can be genetic. Look at what kind of skin your father or mother has. And maybe even look at the skin of your grandparents on both sides. Who else has dry skin like yours? Your skin produces less sebum. For the production of sebum, the skin needs sufficient nutrients from the inside. Both vitamins, minerals, proteins, and healthy fats. These reach the upper layers of the skin from the small blood vessels under the skin.
  • Lack of circulation: The second cause of dry skin may lie in a lack of circulation and thus blood flow to the skin, allowing nutrients to nourish the skin, just like the rest of the body.
  • Diet and Hydration: From my philosophy on skin, your skin reflects what you eat and drink. This directly affects the health of your skin. Insufficient water intake can lead to dehydration of the skin, while a lack of nutrients such as essential fatty acids and vitamins can affect skin health.
  • Lack of a good skincare routine: Nowadays, there are various groups that avoid the use of creams because the skin should solve it itself. I think that's a very bad idea in the case of dry skin. Because the problem doesn't only come from the outside but also from the inside, as we saw in the above-mentioned causes. If the skin produces insufficient sebum from the inside and is exposed to various external influences from the outside (think of sun, wind, cold, air pollution, dry air), it's possible that the dry skin becomes even drier. Resulting in strong wrinkle formation.

Dry skin is sensitive to what we call transepidermal water loss (TEML). This is moisture that is in the skin from the inside, and that you lose under the influence of extreme weather conditions.

And then there are two other factors that strongly contribute to getting dry skin.

  • Incorrect skincare and skincare use: Using the wrong skincare products that further dry out the skin. Often, unnatural synthetic skincare is a factor that can lead to strong dehydration.
  • And hormonal influences: The influence of your hormones on your skin should certainly not be underestimated. Dry skin can also occur under the influence of your hormones. And at any age. Although most commonly known during menopause. Estrogen production largely disappears, and the skin becomes drier (not just the skin, actually everything becomes drier: your eyes, your hair, your skin, your intestines).

Solving your dry skin

I believe that it's important to effectively treat dry skin with a holistic approach, both from the outside and from the inside. And I also think that dry skin doesn't just need regular skincare. Layers on top of each other are needed to ultimately achieve a good beautiful skin result.

  1. Step 1: Cleanse your skin in a nourishing way: A cleanser should leave your skin barrier completely intact, and even strengthen it. And besides, it's important that a cleanser removes impurities, cleans your blackheads, nourishes your skin, hydrates, exfoliates, removes dead skin cells, stimulates your blood circulation, and makes your skin receptive to hydration, all without stripping the skin's natural oils. Check out our step 1 that does all of this.
  2. Step 2: Hydrate your skin immediately after cleansing to prevent moisture loss. Your skin is receptive to hydration after a good cleanser. Make sure you use a completely natural aqua serum with hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and symphytum that brings moisture to your skin.
  3. Step 3: Boost the vitality of your skin: In addition to moisture, your skin also needs high-quality purely natural fats that are very similar in properties to your skin's own fats. So your skin recognizes them and can absorb them quickly. The best vitality booster is a facial oil with high-quality specially selected plant oils with a high content of natural vitamins and anti-inflammatory substances such as polyphenols. The oil of this layer ensures that you counteract trans epidermal water loss and strengthen your skin barrier.
  4. Step 4: Immediately repair cell damage. As a final layer on top of the other 3 layers, it's important to apply a layer that provides even more nourishment and protects the skin throughout the day from all harmful influences. This helps prevent premature aging of dry skin and protects the skin from dehydration. Our step 4 protects and restores all these things exceptionally well.

Treating dry skin through Diet and Lifestyle Adjustments

In addition to a good skincare routine, there are also adjustments in your diet and lifestyle that can help treat dry skin.

  • Drink enough water: to promote hydration from the inside out, it's important to drink water and also add liquid ionic minerals to it. This helps keep the skin and skin cells hydrated and prevent dehydration.
  • Eat healthy and cleanse your intestines: There is a saying that 'you are not what you eat, but what you absorb'. And that's quite true. If your intestines can't absorb the nutrients from the food you eat, that food won't reach your skin either. So eating healthy goes best with clean intestines. Eat balanced and healthy, and think of sufficient minerals, vitamins, fiber, and proteins, not to mention the much-needed omega-3 fatty acids. Think of foods such as fatty fish, avocados, nuts, seeds, and green leafy vegetables.
  • Avoid Dehydrating Substances: Limit the consumption of caffeine and alcohol and too spicy herbs because these substances can have a dehydrating effect and dry out the skin.

By combining a good skincare routine and healthy lifestyle habits, you can effectively treat dry skin and ensure a healthy and radiant complexion. Take a look at our 4-step skincare routine. This can effectively solve your dry skin.
