Dry skin: all the products to counteract the problems of this skin type?

Dry skin is a type of skin that appears to be dull, dehydrated and that often cracks. To take care of dry skin you need products that have a high concentration of water in their formula, in order to bring the skin back to an ideal hydration level. Mia Cosmetics offers a wide range of products that have been studied to deeply hydrate skin, heal and prevent dryness and dehydration of the skin.

Dry skin types

When the skin “pulls” and is cracked in the nose, eye and cheek area you most certainly have a dry skin type. This skin type may be caused by several factors like genetic predisposition, age, pathologies, environmental agents or a not so healthy lifestyle.

Maybe not everybody knows that dry skin can be divided into two types:

  • dehydrated dry skin: in this case the problem is the lack of water in the corneum layer of the skin that is needed to protect us against external agents
  • alipidic dry skin: in this case,dryness is due to the low sebum production. This quickens the natural aging process, making it fragile, less elastic and marked.

Skincare routine for dry and cracked skin

People often think that to counteract the dryness of the skin you only need a moisturizer. Hydration is fundamental but it’s not the only step to keep in consideration when you have dry and cracked skin. You actually have to follow a complete skincare routine to be able to obtain a smooth, hydrated and glowy skin. Daily cleansing is very important and, moreover, must be made with delicate face cleansers that don’t dry the skin even more. Try Cleanse&Tone Milk, cleaning milk by Mia Cosmetics that removes blemishes without causing any irritation or perform a double cleansing, like korean skincare routine wants, with a delicate oil make-up remover with nourishing properties, like Hydra Beauty Oil Express, and is a foam cleanser like In Da Cloud.

Given that dry skin tends to crack, it is necessary to exfoliate to promote cell turnover. For this skin type, it’s better to choose face scrubs that have emollient oils and microparticles, like Papricot Reset with jojoba oil, papain and apricot’s kernels, or Scrubbycado with avocado oil, shea butter and activated charcoal micro particles.

To purify and hydrate the skin at the same time, try Spiru Candy face mask by Mia Cosmetics that with olive, Argan and Jojoba oil, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid mix reduces the flaking process of dry skin.

When it comes to the best moisturizers to nourish dry skin, Hydrata Face Cream by Mia Cosmetics is rich in antioxidants that help fight skin aging and keep face skin hydrated and elastic.
