INTRODUCTION

Dry and Sensitive Skin

Dry skin is a common complaint among post-adolescent individuals. This is usually the result of stress at our busy lifestyles and the harsh effects of the environment (sun/environmental pollutants). Alcohol, smoking, low water intake and poor use of skincare are other significant contributing factors.

Some medical conditions can cause dry and flaky skin (such as eczema or fungal skin disease) and they need to be ruled out if your condition is severe.

Symptoms of dry skin include:

  • Rough, flaky or peeling skin
  • Itching
  • Scaling
  • Fine lines or cracks
  • Redness
  • Cracks that may bleed

CAUSES

What causes dry skin?

Common causes of dry skin include:

Air-conditioning
Places that require air-conditioning or dehumidifiers will drastically reduce the humidity in the air and cause your skin to dry up.

Warm Baths & Showers
Try and avoid taking too many long showers with hot water. Spending too long in the sauna or jaccuzi can also have detrimental effects to your skin. The heat from these activites can damage and irritate the surface of the skin, causing skin to get drier even though it feels warm and moist while you’re at it.

Soap & Detergent
Coming into contact with dishwashing fluid or harsh soaps can cause skin to become dry and flake off. This is because these soaps have an agent that can destroy the natural skin barriers and cause skin to dry out.

EVIDENCE-BASED METHODS

Treatments for Dry & Sensitive Skin

Firstly, medical conditions need to be considered before prescribing any treatment.

Lifestyle measures are useful (even if you are suffering from medical conditions). This can include adequate hydration, a balanced diet as well as healthy levels of activity. Skincare is indispensable and easy way to prevent and treat dry skin.

Treatments come in 2 forms
Medical devices can be used to push hydrating molecules into skin. Some newer medical devices like the BioHeal can stimulate skin to produce its own moisture molecules.

Injectables like skinboosters and Rejuran are more invasive, but also can give more drastic results.

Dry skin is usually a very satisfying condition to treat and provides great relief for patients.

Veritas BioHeal uses hybrid ultrasound waves to directly influence cellular activities, strengthening the skin tissues from inside out. It can improve skin sensitivity and even medical conditions such as eczema and rosacea.

Skinboosters such as Rejuran and Nucleofill contain salmon PDRN and work to drastically and quickly improve skin dryness and sensitivity. Profhilo and exosomes can repair weakened cells and achieve similar effects too.
