How to Combat Extremely Dry Skin
Here's how to deal with extremely dry skin once and for all
If you’re someone who suffers from dry skin, you know that it can be an uncomfortable feeling. While some people are born with dry, dehydrated skin, others have extremely dry skin due to the environment and daily habits. In cold climates especially, the low humidity may cause us to have a rough time with extremely dry skin. It can result in redness, acne, or even extreme cases of eczema and bacterial infections. But there’s nothing to worry about, by using the correct formulas designed specifically for you, you can combat it within a short time.
You may do several things on your own to treat dry skin problems, such as moisturising, using occlusive balms like vaseline, using year-round UV protection and drinking enough water too. However, the best thing you can do is find the right approach to treating it. Find a skincare regimen that works for you and is tailored to make you reach your skin goals.How do you know if you have extremely dry skin?
Dry skin is frequently transient or seasonal. The tell-tale signs and symptoms of dry skin might change depending on your age, health, skin tone, the atmosphere at home, and sun exposure.
Here are a few exhibits:
- Skin that feels or looks rough
- Skin feels extremely tight
- Skin flaking
- Fine lines or cracks that may also bleed
- Skin that ranges from reddish on white skin to greyish on brown and black skin
How do you treat extremely dry skin?
#1 Focus on gentle cleansing
The first and foremost advice for dry skin is to keep your skin clean, but not ‘squeaky clean’. Our advice is to use a gentle cleanser only; it will help you get rid of dirt, pollution & sweat gently without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Using a cleanser that makes your skin feel tight & dry or one with too many actives could disrupt your skin barrier.

#3 Always wear sunscreen
#2 Use a hydrating serum
A moisture-rich, hydrating serum in your skincare routine can be a game-changer. We get it, this is a very basic tip. However, what most people don’t realise is that they might not be using the right serum for their skin type and concerns. Since this is a very crucial step, a serum tailor-made for your skin type is a safe and effective option.
The Suhi & Sego’s Night Serum is a magical potion made with skin-loving ingredients to boost the skin rejuvenation process and deeply hydrate your skin. It will penetrate to the deeper layers of your skin to prevent dryness. It is infused with Rosa Damascena extract, Hyaluronic acid, Peptides, Arbutin, Kojic acid, and Glutathione to give you plump and bright skin. You can use it during the day as well as at night.
Sunscreen is your greatest friend since it shields your skin from damaging UVA/UVB rays and pollutants that may cause skin damage in any season. It goes without saying; whether you're out shopping or going about your daily activities, you must wear SPF. If you have extremely dry skin, get a sunscreen with additional ingredients that have moisturising effects such as ceramides or hyaluronic acid.
#4 Make lifestyle changes
It’s true, you are what you eat. Not drinking enough water, eating too many processed foods, and consuming a high salt and sugar diet is going to wreak havoc on your skin. Consuming too much caffeine could also be the culprit.
Another small change you can make is avoiding hot showers as it won’t help extremely dry skin.
There are a lot of factors to consider while taking care of your dry skin problems, but following these general rules daily will make a significant difference.
