What Causes Dry Skin?

Properly caring for your skin is essential for all skin types, but it can actually make the difference between happy, hydrated skin and dry, irritated skin. Using harsh cleansers, exfoliators, or other skincare products not formulated with drier skin types in mind may dry out your skin and cause serious irritation.
Another common cause of dry skin is cold weather. Even if you typically find your skin to be well hydrated and supple, the cold winter months or extremely dry weather can have a serious impact on your skin’s moisture levels. The environment can play a major role in your skin’s health, so it is important to adjust your skincare routine as needed when the weather starts to take a toll on your skin.
Age can be a factor in your skin’s ability to produce and retain the key oils that help to keep your skin hydrated. As you age, your body may produce less sebum, an oily substance that is critical in moisturizing and protecting your skin. Your skincare routine should also work to address some of the ways your skin is changing, including the dissipation of key oils that keep your skin hydrated.

What Ingredients Should You Use For Dry Skin ?

Hyaluronic Acid
A potent molecule naturally found in skin, hyaluronic acid can enhance skin's own moisture retention for lasting hydration.It holds 1,000x its weight in water to deeply hydrate and plump dry surface lines.
Squalane
like its naturally produced cousin, squalene, this hydrating lipid can help to strengthen the skin's moisture barrier and deeply moisturize while preventing trans epidermal water loss.
Evening Primrose Extract
made from the seeds of the flowers of a plant with the same name, evening primrose extract/oil contains a powerful omega 6 fatty acid that helps the skin hold onto vital moisture.
Avocado
a nutrient dense superfood that helps stimulate the natural production of hyaluronic acid and softens even the driest skin.

What Ingredients Should You Avoid for Dry Skin?

Retinol/Retinoids

the power of retinol skincare is something we at Dr. Dennis Gross are very passionate about—but some skin types may need to go easy on the retinoids in their routines.

Exfoliating Acid

dryer skin types may want to use these products in tandem with deeply hydrating and soothing products to help guard against excessive dryness.

Parabens

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare products are always free of parabens, phthalates, and sulfates. Parabens are synthetic ingredients that can irritate the skin, so it is best to avoid them.
