Dry skin is a common problem with many causes. Dry skin can be due to dehydration (a lack of drinking water), dry weather, medications, hormonal fluctuations, heredity, or overuse of products. This type of skin can feel tight, itchy, bumpy, and itchy. Also, it can appear dull and ashy. As a popular celebrity skin care specialist working with many recognizable faces, we have some tips and tricks.
We take dry skin very seriously at the clinic. To achieve results, we often tell our patients to undergo intensive in-clinic treatment as well as an at-home skincare regimen. The most popular treatment for dry skin is Diamond tip microdermabrasion.
Diamond tip microdermabrasion gently removes the outermost layer of the skin using a vacuum and diamond tip device to resurface the skin.
Additionally, we use a light hydrating chemical peel in Atlanta, such as lactic acid or pumpkin, which we derive from spoiled milk and fermented pumpkin.
The goal of a concentrated exfoliation treatment is to remove your skin’s outermost layer so that moisturizers and hydration can penetrate. We also use a device that shakes the skin 1000 times per second to move moisturizers deeper into the skin, helping to improve moisture levels.
For this type of skin, we recommend doing this treatment once a month until you notice a significant
difference, then coming in quarterly for maintenance. You can make an appointment for “Dry Skin and Eczema Therapy” online.
At home treatments
Dermatologists recommend the following skin care advice to heal dry skin and prevent it from returning: It is good skincare for dark skin, light skin, or any other skin tone.
Gently wash your face at least twice a day with a pumpkin or lactic acid-based product. Stay away from cleansers that have surfactants, as they can strip the skin of its natural oils.
Moisturize and hydrate your skin twice daily with products containing EGF, EMU, and hyaluronic acid. Layering your moisturizer and your hydrator can give more relief.
Use a facial scrub once a week on clean, dry skin, then apply your moisturizers and hydrators.
Use warm water. Using hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils.
Drink half your body weight in oz of water daily, and stay away from high-sugar food, caffeine, alcohol, salty foods, processed foods, and dairy.
Use a humidifier in your bedroom when sleeping and at work to keep moisture in the air. Hot, dry indoor air can irritate sensitive skin and exacerbate itching and flaking. A humidifier helps add moisture to the air in your home.
Take your vitamins such as Vitamin D, fish oils, probiotics, aloe vera, and hyaluronic acid.
Working on your skin both inside and out to help with dry skin and eczema is a task that you can
