Does your skin feel dry, flakey and uncomfortable by the end of the day? If so then you need a skin care routine that helps to hold onto moisture. Dryness occurs when your skin doesn’t have enough water or oil (sebum) and can affect anyone at any time. Ideally we need to strive for a healthy balance of oil and water in the skin. The purpose of the sebum is to maintain the suppleness of skin and hair as well as to protect the skin from damages caused by external factors and dehydration. If the skin becomes dehydrated, the enzymes in the skin do not function properly leading to a sluggish cell turnover and a dull sallow appearance.
