Certainly the problem of moisture already touched everyone who ever thought about skin care seriously. It will never be enough if you study your own face, it needs. Moreover, if to choose care, just looking at the naturalness of composition and the words “for dry skin”. So today I set myself a goal to write a brief “guide to hydration”, which I hope will be helpful.
Want to look into the matter? Ask a cat.
Let’s start with the main!
Types of dry skin
Dried. No protective lipid barrier, causing moisture if there is, it disappears at the speed of sound. Lack of oil and water. Symptoms: peeling, dermatitis, poor skin turgor, thinning of the skin, burning at the slightest stimuli, pigmentation, wrinkles appear when they are small and not very deep, but they are often immediately a lot in the first steps easily evaporate. Requires in-care, such as moisturizing toner oil-free serum with vitamin C at night, with hyaluronic acid in the morning, then cream with collagen That is many layers of water care, cream and possibly butter.
Obezvojennaya — good turgor, no peeling, pores can be seen and even enlarged, but the skin is very prone to large and small mimic wrinkles, in the summer can sometimes thick (but not too). Matting tools eliminates Shine without any difficulty. Of course, if you don’t go to the Bazaar to +35. Dehydration is often expressed in dry weather and squarenose in dry areas, however, both are easily cleaned for a couple of days of good moisture, if the skin is young and has no other problems. Important this skin is not pereputat not to cause expansion of the pores and the deterioration of the penetration care.
Obezvojennaya fat (aka the “oily-dry”) — the most difficult type. Most often, oily skin becomes dehydrated when acne, enlarged pores and excessive Shine clean zinc alcohol and lack of care when improper washing. You can recognize easily raised when to and when not fat, peeling, tightness. The main principle is to establish washing regularly and efficiently moisturize the skin.

Means for dehydrated oily skin
I hope you now understand what textures need to your skin, and can be found a couple of skin hotelok? I hope this will help you, but not the end.
Let’s examine the most popular components of moisturizers: what to look for in the compositions, and that often it is better to avoid?
The most useful and necessary
Hyaluronic acid is excellent ingredient for all skin types. Perfect if it is combined with extracts, natural hydrolate, vitamins. After all, the essence of hyaluronic acid to make skin all the components, especially those related to the water phase. So just water in the first place to care for her too moist, but works best with assets.
Vitamin C in form of L — fairly stable form of the vitamin. It is better that the tool was less other components, particularly oils. Especially friends combined “vitamin C + Allantoin + hyaluronic acid + wild raspberries + preservative”. Minimizes pore size, revitalizes the skin, reduces sensitivity, and strengthens the capillaries. It is better not to use a skin with excessive sebum. And another ban — day to apply the serum and cream with vitamin C impossible.
Caffeine is another item that is best friends with himself. It is ideal to use course. Addresses hotels and smooths the skin, can tighten drooping eyelids a couple of millimeters. Is perfect dry skin.
Glycerin is one of the most controversial elements, but criticize him absolutely nothing. Able to overdry the skin only in one case — the air around you bone dry while you apply glycerin to dry skin, pure and simple. In other cases — everything is fine and you can not fear. Workhorse, though hilaron and running faster. Let’s analyze in detail its pros and cons, so what about glycerin there is a lot of myths and fears.
Takes moisture from the air
Great in the misty
Improves balance formula
Helps extend the life of the serums with vitamin C
Ideal in combination with hyaluronidase degrade the moisture, if the air is very dry.
Sometimes, it impairs the ability of the surfactant to foam.
Vitamin B3 Niacinamide — brightens, eliminates irritation and dryness. Very quickly rashes (not chronic acne, of course). Very friendly component can miksowania with everything and get any skin. Works best on the type of “oily-dry”.
Miroslawa Tripeptides — relax the muscles and work against expression wrinkles. Component of course is good, but will not help everyone. For parched skin with its fine lines it is undeniably useful at the initial stage, but in the case of dehydrated and deep creases — no, it is better to act massage and peels. And
is advice for everyone — stop wrinkle the forehead.
The hydrolysate kelp is an indispensable source of plant collagen. What that really is embedded in our fragile collagen mesh, trying to keep the skin moist and supple.
Useless and harmful
Biozole him, was the most useful part is the solvent. It is inert in relation to the skin. Therefore, it can be used is that the role of the scrub) Although I think a chemical peel would be more effective) And biosole very allergenicity.
Alcohol — by itself. Especially the note written on. Never buy starters Holika Holika. I was shocked when I saw the alcohol on the second place.
Salicylic alcohol salicylic acid itself, which is a good way to do the peeling. Of course, if she’s in the part of well-balanced means. But salicylic alcohol plays a major role the first word — alcohol. Before you feel the effects have to burn your skin that, unfortunately, not an option. Avoid using this element in the care and tools to deal with the peeling. Of course, salicylic acid is not concerned.
Limonen — safe and seemingly innocuous flavoring. In fact irritate the skin, provoke rosacea and allergies.
Now our conversation and came to an end. I tried to sum up all that have helped me to get out from the “dry skin” in a direction relative to normal. I hope all this is useful to you.
