1 | What causes dry skin?

First, let’s look at why the skin becomes dry.

There are many possible causes of skin dryness besides the seasonal changes.

We will explain the main 4 reasons which cause dry skin.

1.1 |Lifestyle

Lack of sleep, unbalanced diet, stress… The list goes on. When your daily routine is disrupted, it affects theskin cell turnover, making it more prone to dryness.

1.2 |Damage caused by UV rays

UV rays not only cause sunburn, but also damage your skin barrier, drying the skin out.

Regardless of the season and the temperature, UV rays remain strong throughout the year, so UV protection (a.k.a. Sunscreens of SPF 30 or more) should be always applied!

1.3 |Low Humidity

In many parts of Canada, the humidity level drop dramatically in the winter months.

This causes the skin to lose its ability to retain moisture and become very dry.

Winter is not the only season you should be aware of the humidity level.

Even in summer, humidity drops due to the use of air conditioning, which deprives the skin of moisture.

1.4 |Wrong Skincare Techniques

There are many little tricks that you can adopt in your daily skincare routine, which helps you prevent dry skin.

For example, you may have been rinsing your face with warm water several times a day because you enjoy the nice and cozy feeling.

But in fact, washing too many times with warm water washes away natural moisturizing factor (NMF), such as intercellular lipids and necessary sebum, which are responsible for moisture retention of the skin, leading to reduce hydration.

1.5 |Wrong Skincare Products

Using the wrong skin products that do not match your skin’s condition is one major cause of dry skin!

It is very important to find the right skin care product for your skin.
