What is a good skin care routine for dry skin?

Dehydrated dry skin occurs when the skin loses its natural moisture to the atmosphere or due to its poor moisture retention. Many factors could be responsible for skin dryness:

  • Use of harsh skincare products that strip the natural oils produced by the skin to retain moisture.
  • Hot water showers or long bathing periods as water too washes off natural oils
  • Aging skin that produces less natural oil and loses its water retention ability
  • Dry climate where the air absorbs the skin’s moisture
  • Use of alcohol toners that dry up the skin
  • Inherent conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and contact dermatitis characterized with extremely sensitive, dry skin
  • Certain medications can also dry up the skin

When skin is dry, it tends to flake, itch, sting and become sensitive. In more extreme cases, dry skin can become inflamed and result in cracks and wounds that can be painful and can significantly alter lifestyle.

Best ingredients for dry skin

The best way to get rid of dry skin is to supply it with

  • Moisturizing natural oils that increase the skin’s water retention ability and reduce TEWL (transepidermal water loss)

examples: ostrich oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, borage oil, shea butter

  • Nourishing minerals that restore the skin’s natural moisturizing factor

Examples: Zinc, Copper, Lithium, Boron, Sodium, Magnesium, Silicon, Phosphorus, Sulfur, Potassium

  • Vitamins to encourage healing and replenishing of damaged skin layer with new skin cells

Examples: vitamins A, C, E, F, K

  • Ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties to protect the skin against inflammation

Examples: German chamomile oil, rose oil, rose honey

  • Ingredients with anti-microbial properties to fight and protect the skin against harmful bacterial infections

Examples: rose honey, tea tree oil, clary sage oil, eucalyptus oil

  • Skin probiotics to replenish and support the natural skin flora to return the skin to a state of balance

Example: Lactobacillus

  • Sun protective elements to protect the moisture barrier from the damage of UV radiation

Example: titanium dioxide and zinc oxide

    Why are minerals important for our skin?

    • minerals are essential to healthy skin function and cell repair
    • normally present in perspiration, minerals nourish the microbiome (skin flora) that is produced at the skin’s sebum layer, which holds moisture in and blocks dirt out
    • washing can remove these precious minerals, so the best thing you can do for your skin is to replace them directly
    • BEST WATER does just that, with a mineral complex that closely resembles nature’s own formula
    • when skin loses softness through the processes of aging, the pores harden and appear larger. BEST WATER counteracts this tension, restoring the skin’s youthful elasticity and allowing pores to shrink naturally. The result is a soft, hydrated and fine texture complexion
