Do you “suffer” from dry or dehydrated skin? Have you tried almost everything – in order to get rid of dehydration, itchiness, irritation and dullness – but your efforts are in vain? It is quite possible that you are making a “mistake” in your skincare routine. In fact, you may not be treating your skin in the right way.
The most common mistakes in dry skin care
Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common mistakes we make while treating dry skin:
Washing our face too often: We may have learned that cleansing our face is the be-all and end-all in our beauty routine, but regular face washing worsens dehydration on dry skin as it strips away the skin’s natural oils. Thus, if our skin type is dry to dehydrated, frequent cleansing is definitely a bad decision.
Not using the right cleanser: It is necessary to use a mild cleansing product, that does not neutralize the skin’s natural oils, causing irritation. For this reason, for our daily care we choose products that are suitable for dry or sensitive skin. An easy and empirical way to check if the cleanser we use is suitable for our facial needs, is the feeling it leaves on our skin. If we feel itchiness or a sense that our skin is almost totally dehydrated, then we should replace it with a milder one.
Exfoliate too often: The benefits of exfoliation are well known, since it cleanses the skin deeply, while removing dead cells. However, frequent exfoliation leaves the skin irritated and dry, so it is contraindicated for dry skin.
Using an inappropriate moisturizer: It may be our favorite or we may have been using it for years, but we should not forget that skin changes as we age, thus having different needs and requiring targeted care. We always choose our moisturizing cream based on our age and the specific needs of our own skin type. MACROVITA Super Nourishing Cream with olive oil & bee royal jelly provides strong anti-wrinkle care and antioxidant action. It is the 24-hour moisturizing and nourishing cream that your dry to dehydrated skin needs. Strengthens and improves the structure of the skin, reducing wrinkles while increasing its density and elasticity, resulting in the smoothing of the microrelief and the harmonic remodeling of the facial contour. Use it daily on a clean and dry face, avoiding the eye contour area.
Bathing with excessively hot water: Hot water aggravates dry skin, causing redness and irritation. Therefore, try to avoid it, using lukewarm water instead.
Neglecting demaquillage: Make-up, as well as most cosmetic beauty products, aggravates dryness on the skin, clogs the pores and causes irritations. Therefore, do not forget to remove your make-up thoroughly at the end of the day.
Blending many products: Incorporating too many different products into our skincare routine is not always a good idea, especially if our skin is sensitive. To avoid getting confused and unintentionally overburdening our skin, we limit ourselves to the basic rules: In the morning we use cleanser, moisturizing cream and sun care cream, while at the end of the day, we use make-up remover, cleanser and night cream. We indulge in MACROVITA Multi-effective Night Face Cream with argan oil & olive oil for anti-wrinkle protection, firming and shine. Thanks to its advanced formula, moisturizes deeply and tightens the skin, increasing its cohesion and elasticity also strengthening its barrier. Reduces age and expression wrinkles and calms the skin, offering a uniform color, velvety sensation and youthful radiance.
