We all know that tight feeling. All of a sudden the skin looks like the desert we call our home. When untreated dry skin starts to get textured, flaky, red and can even crack and bleed. There are so many causes like using your heater and the dry winter weather pulling away all of your moisture.
A facial can address all of these issues no matter where you find yourself on that waterfall of symptoms that occurs with dry skin.
Here’s a breakdown of this blog post on IGTV:
Why do facials help dry skin?
Facials can help with dry skin because they address the root of the issue, a compromised barrier function. Your skin’s barrier function is like a wall that helps to hold moisture in and keep invading toxins out. If your skin is stripped of all these good oils, there’s a chance your skin is experiencing one or several of those dry skin symptoms I listed above.
Here’s a quick breakdown of what a custom radiance facial for dry skin will look like to heal and restore moisture.
The first step is to soften the skin. We all know that rough texture the skin starts to present when on the drier side. I use hot towels and steam, to soften the skin cells and prep the skin for the rest of the facial.
That softening process allows the removal of any dead skin to be gentle. Saying goodbye to flaking and texture without any irritation. Cleanses, gommaging with natural exfoliants like jojoba beads and lymphatic hot towel removals leave only smooth skin.
3. Deep moisture
Next, it’s time to infuse the skin with moisture via a cooling treatment mask. Replenishing ingredients like rich plant oils such as avocado oil and grapeseed oil help to provide the skin with everything it needs to be supple and soft.
Also, while the skin was left with a compromised barrier function it may have been exposed to damaging factors. Thankfully, this mask is full of antioxidant rich ingredients to help neutralize imbalances.
4. Protect and repair
Finally, a strengthening mask will help to stimulate healing with repairing ingredients like rose hip seed oil and green tea extract. Before finishing, the skin is soothed with calming properties from chamomile and aloe vera.
This last mask is essential to make sure your skin is strong enough to continue to hold moisture. Repair and balance are the key to not experiencing TEWL (transepidurmal water loss) where your skin cannot hold onto its moisture.
