More Information for Dry Skin Type

The characteristics of dry and dehydrated skin, such as a feeling of tightness and flaking or scaly skin with rough texture, are due to insufficient water and/or oil levels in the skin. As dry skin worsens, so do the symptoms, which may evolve to include cracking and irritation.

The cause of this skin type can be genetics, aging, environmental factors, over-washing of skin, use of irritating ingredients, and more. Regardless of the cause, it is vital to repair the skin’s acid mantle and increase hydration while limiting moisture loss. To do that, a skin care routine for dry skin should include a few key elements:

  • Cleanse
    Use of a gentle daily cleanser that removes dirt and impurities while preserving the acid mantleLearn how to properly wash your face.

  • Moisturize
    Use of rich moisturizers that help to slow trans-epidermal water loss while lubricating and smoothing the skin.

  • Deep Moisture
    Use of a rich serum that aid in increasing skin moisture while offering antioxidant protection.

  • Exfoliation
    Regular exfoliation to improve skin texture, improve cellular rejuvenation and improve the penetration ability of products like serums and moisturizers. 

  • Protect
    Daily use of sunscreen to protect skin and prevent photoaging.

  • Maintain Moisture
    Use of a gentle toner to keep skin hydrated and comfortable throughout the day while minimizing inflammation.

As we age, the skin of most individuals becomes drier. Additionally, dry skin can exaggerate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Therefore, while a proper skin care routine will eventually improve the overall appearance and condition of the skin, it is generally recommended that those with dry skin begin using the appropriate anti-aging products beginning in their early 20s. Peptide products are beneficial in that they signal the skin to increase its production of collagen, the protein that gives skin its strength and firmness.

The pharmaceutical grade of aloe vera that is used as the base of every Lexli product is very beneficial for those with dry skin. Unlike water, which is used as the base of most other skin care products, aloe vera can penetrate skin tissue where it delivers more than 200 active components that aid in skin healing and reduce inflammation while soothing damaged tissue.
