Even though the two are interlinked because having a film of oil on the skin, helps to lock the water in. This is why people who don’t produce much oil tend to have dry skin. They just don’t have enough oil to lock in the water. So oily skin definitely has the advantage when it comes to preventing dry skin. But this doesn’t mean oily skin’s are immune to dryness. The temptation to over cleanse or even worse, use foaming cleansers that completely strip off the oil from the skin’s surface, result in a rapid evaporation of water from the skin. This means that oily skins can be some of the driest.
So the solution to dry skin is easy, increase the water content of your skin. But you can’t do this by drinking more water because that only hydrates the deeper layers of your skin, it does nothing for the outer layers where dry skin originates from. You need to work from the outside. This is where your soaking takes on a whole new level of importance. Soak, soak, soak, then apply your Janesce mist and Janesce concentrate. I love the Sensitive Dehydrated Concentrate for addressing dryness. Then use a serum like Perfecting Gel, Oxygenating Ageless Serum or Re-energising Age-Defying Serum. These products all contain hyaluronin, a clever little humectant that attaches to and hold moisture. Then apply your moisturiser to lock in all that precious moisture.
