This lack of oil in the skin may be compounded by dehydration, which is a lack of water on the skin’s surface. Dry and dehydrated skin will not only appear dried out, it can also lead to other skin concerns such as fine lines, roughness, dullness and visible pores. Dehydrated skincare products will also be less effective if the root of this dryness is not addressed and a healthy skin base is not achieved.
Unlike those with normal skin, oily skin, or combination skin, those with dehydrated skin should prioritise deeply nourishing and oil-rich skincare products for dry skin. This will provide a hydrating base that the skin can use to slow the signs of ageing and appear more radiant. Because dry skin affects the entire face, Liberty Belle Rx has curated a collection of eye creams, face treatments, serums and some of the best face moisturisers for dry and dehydrated skin. You can also take the skincare quiz to determine which skincare creams for dry skin you should try based on other factors present in your skin.
If your dry skin is a result of eczema or acne, you may wish to consult a GP before treating your skin with specially-formulated dehydrated skincare to avoid exacerbation.
