Moisture deficiency isn't the main cause of dry skin. Instead, it's often damage (the main culprit being sun damage) that causes extremely dry skin. At the same time, irritating or drying skincare products can also damage your skin. Below, you'll find more information on how to best restore extremely dry skin.
Step 1: Cleanser
Start by using a facial cleanser for extremely dry skin. Your skin naturally contains fats that protect your skin and retain moisture. With extremely dry skin, it's extra important to keep the skin barrier intact. Use a facial cleanser from the Paula's Choice collection, which doesn't dry out your skin.
Step 2: Exfoliate
Try to regularly exfoliate your extremely dry skin. Your rough skin will soften and your dull skin will once again become radiant. For sensitive skin, choose a BHA exfoliant. For a skin with signs of sun damage, use an AHA exfoliant.
Step 3: Day cream for an extremely dry skin
Avoid skin dehydration by using a rich cream every day with skin-similair, restoring ingredients that strengthen the skin barrier.
