Dry Skin: Hypo Secretion

A Skin Care Tip From BI Resident Skin Diva, Sherilyn Rhymes

Fashion & Beauty, Featured

Characteristics: Dry skin is a skin type that you are born with. The skin has a deficiency in lipid production, a.k.a. sebum or oil.

Causes:  Genetics/Heredity.

Results:  Weak skin barrier that cannot properly protect the skin; often becomes sensitive & dehydrated; becomes more prominent with age.

The solution?   Cleansers & masks that are creamy/milky; Proper exfoliation with enzymes or mild acids; Serums & Creams that are lipid (oil) based.  Ingredients to look for:  Oils containing Omega’s 3-6-9 & EFA’s.  Vitamin E, Lycopene,  Ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid. Clinical Treatments  should  nourish and replenish the proper amount of lipids & humectants.  Consult your Esthetician to select the products/professional treatments best suited for you. If you have any questions or don’t have an Esthetician, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help you.
