18 Jan Transform Your Skin: The Ultimate Dry Skincare Bundle
Q: So, what is dry skin, what causes it, and what can we do to help maintain moisturized skin?
A: Dry skin is usually a result from a lack of sebum (oils) and lipids that maintain moisture in the skin. It can appear dull, dehydrated and can even be scaly in some places. Dry skin is more prone to sensitivity so can easily become red, irritated and even sore.
Dryness is aggravated by many factors, such as colder and windier weather in winter, reduced levels of humidity, air conditioning, prolonged sun exposure and so on.
To make sure you maintain healthy moisture levels, there a few simple steps you can take to improve skin hydration.
1.Be gentle when you cleanse! Make sure you are cleansing your face, using warm water and a very gently cleanser which doesn’t contain any harsh cleansing ingredients or perfumes. The Q+A Oat Milk Cleanser is definitely our no.1 recommendation here.
2.Boost your hydration levels with natural ingredients that are originally found in our body, like Hyaluronic Acid or Ceramides. To get the best moisturizing benefits from Hyaluronic Acid, make sure to apply the serum whilst your face is still slightly damp. This ensures your skin is absorbing every little bit of this hydration potion!
3.Make sure you are locking in that moisture and protecting your skin barrier by using the appropriate moisturizer for your skin.
Our Dry Skin Bundle contains the Q+A Collagen Face Cream, which is one of our richest moisturizers. It deeply hydrates, whilst maintaining our collagen levels too for refreshed and plump skin. Depending on your skin type, Q+A offer five different moisturizers for you to choose from.
Q: Is Vitamin C good for dry skin?
A: The short answer is YES, absolutely! Vitamin C is an antioxidant which promotes a healthy skin barrier. This can help to prevent moisture loss for well-hydrated skin. However, if you skin is extremely dry or prone to sensitivity, be careful when applying Vitamin C for the first time as it can cause some minor irritation.
For maximum moisturization, pairing it with our Collagen Face Cream, Vitamin C and Collagen are one of the best skincare duos!
You can also find this special ingredient in our nourishing Q+A Vit A.C.E Warming Mask, which feels like a warm hug when applied to skin.
Q: Not entirely sure what your skin type is?
A: Don’t you worry, we can help you figure it out! Our Skin Type Quiz is an easy 2 minute, multiple choice questionnaire which will help identify your skin type whilst creating a customized regimen just for you.
