6 unexpected reasons why the skin became too dry

Factors that do not have the best effect on your face. Let us calculate them all!

You use wrong sprays

Sprays fixing makeup are not always a good solution in the cold season (or if you have sensitive skin). They often contain alcohol, it allows cosmetics to stay on the face longer,  but it also provokes irritation and skin became too dry. So carefully follow the composition and choose moisturizing ingredients (for example, pentylene glycol or aloe).

However, alcohol is also found in some grooming products, for example, in a tonic. Do not ignore the labels on the cans.

6 unexpected reasons why the skin became too dry

In your means includes retinol

You probably know that retinol is the most powerful beauty industry player that activates the production of collagen and elastin. It is often added to anti-wrinkle and acne remedies. But it is this component in large quantities that can cause dryness and irritation on the face. If you notice that your skin began to peel off under the influence of retinol, try to use it once every three days, and at the break apply deeply moisturizing creams.

Blame It cleanser

We go further in the formulations. Your means for washing too can contain something forbidden. For example, salicylic or glycolic acids. No, these ingredients are not bad by themselves, they are most often prescribed to those who struggle with pimples and acne on the face. They can be used, but alternated with softer, creamy means. The composition may include hyaluronic acid – here it is definitely not any discomfort.

You choose decorative cosmetics

This refers to the powder and tonal resources. In general, the best way to prevent dryness is to take liquid creamy textures with the effect of radiance. Makeup artists, by the way, are advised to apply such funds to the sponge (we hope you know how to use it properly), the brushes can also exacerbate the problem of peeling.

You use face masks too often

No wonder manufacturers write on the label that the mask should be used 1-2 times a week. If you do this too often, you interfere with the natural process of moisturizing the skin. In particular, dryness can cause charcoal and clay in the composition, so we advise you to change them for amino acids.

Are you afraid to use a scrub

An important stage in skin care, eliminating all unnecessary. Alas, if you do not remove the dead layer of cells on your own, then they simply turn into flakes on your face (not to mention the clogging of pores).
