Dry Skin Treatments in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire

Dry SkinDRY SKIN can appear dull, flaky and in severe cases can even crack. Dry skin can affect most people at some point during their life but the good news is that this condition is usually easily manageable. 

 

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF DRY SKIN?

  • Rough or dry patches of skin
  • Sensitive skin
  • Red skin
  • Flaky skin
  • Tight skin
  • Itchy skin

 

WHAT CAUSES DRY SKIN?

Dry skin is often triggered by low humidity in the surrounding air, so it’s more common in colder months and drier climates. This is made much worse by central heating and car heaters as they further dry the air.   However, there may be other triggers including:

  • Taking long, hot showers or baths
  • Hormonal changes
  • Over-washing or scrubbing your skin
  • Using strong soaps, detergents, sanitisers & cleansers

HOW IS DRY SKIN TREATED?

The most important factor is to remove any irritants that may be stripping the skins natural moisture.  Once this is achieved the use of barrier creams can seal the skin to prevent further moisture loss.  These can be rather heavy to use on the face however, so a full skin consultation must be carried out in clinic to assess the dryness and look at the possibility of managing it by adding Hyaluronic Acid, Beta Glucan or VitaminE oil serums to raise the moisture barrier in a more gentle way.  This will give the skin its natural glow back and reduce the risk of dryness induced premature lines and wrinkles.  If the skin requires a more intensive treatment HydraFacial delivers a deep burst of hydration and can be hugely effective in turning the skin around quickly and noticeably to give you your healthy glow back.
