Treating Dry Skin: A Practical Application

Written by Natalya Rachkova, L.E., co-founder of the Better Skin Company

Dry skin is a common skin care issue that can often be easily treated with daily homecare and routine facials. Extremely dry skin can be the harbinger of more serious skin issues, such as dermatitis. Dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin that may cause an itchy rash or patches of dry, irritated skin. Upon consulting with your client, pay close attention to the visible signs to determine how to best proceed with treatment.

Dry Skin Treatment Protocol

Written by

Dry skin is something everyone tends to experience, especially when outside forces, such as dry weather, indoor heating, and cold winters, play a role. When clients are experiencing dry skin, exfoliating treatments are key to bringing back their healthy, glowing skin! Dead Sea salt is especially beneficial for those who suffer from dry skin. Not only do the salt grains exfoliate the skin, but they also deliver a dose of beneficial minerals!

Written by Janel Luu

It is easy enough for aestheticians to identify the symptoms of dry skin – especially since dryness and dehydration are common issues for clients – but consumers often tolerate flakiness thinking it will eventually go away, leading to chronic dryness and dehydration.

The Pathophysiology of Dehydration

Written by

Dehydration reveals itself through numerous body signals, such as thirst, dizziness, and low energy. For example, skin may feel parched or dry after hiking or spending time in the hot sun. Relative humidity within a person's environment greatly influences the balance of skin moisture. For example, clients may live in a seasonal climate zone or in a region where homes are heated in the cooler months or air conditioned during the summer. These variables may affect how the skin feels, as well as interfere with its ability to have good moisture balance.

An Introduction to Dry Skin

Written by

Xerosis cutis is the medical term for abnormally dry skin, which derives from the Greek word xero, meaning dry.

Dry skin is a common skin condition characterized by a lack of moisture in the epidermis.

The main cause of dry skin is dry air, or low humidity, in both inside and outside environments. Keep homes moist by using a humidifier.

The daily shower routine, prolonged exposure to hot water and harsh soaps, greatly perpetuates dry skin.
