If we do a straw poll right now, and we ask our friends do you have dry skin, I am certain, that nearly 90% will tell you they have dry skin.
Who suffers from Dry skin?
In my experience, I would say 90% of Singaporeans suffer from dry skin. This is party contributed by our weather and our lifestyle of staying in air conditioned environments.
Why do we get dry skin?
What causes dry skin?
- Ageing – As we age, we lose collagen, elastin and oil glands.
- Medical conditions – Eczema, diuretics cause increase loss of water from your body.
- External insults – Dry weather, staying in air conditioned places for long, not apply apt postcare after laser resurfacing etc
How can I fix my dry skin?
- Shower no longer than 5 min. Apply moisturiser immediately.
- Do an oil bath to pamper your skin once a week. Use olive oil.
- Vaseline for your dry lips
- For those with atopic eczema, wet wraps around affected limbs are especially effective.
- Face masks 2x a week. This is akin to wet wraps on the face.
Medical Aesthetic Treatment
- Hydrating Skinboosters – These are rich in hyaluronic acid, which are nutrients for dry skin.
- Rejuran – This is a highly specialised DNA that helps repairs skin cells
- Skincare regimen that is rich in ceramide. Ceramide helps to improve skin epidermal barrier function, hence reducing moisture loss.
