FAQs

What causes dry skin?

Do you have dry skin and don’t know why? There are many factors that can cause dry skin. A list of the most common reasons for dry skin include the following:

  • Dry air
  • Cold weather
  • Washing your skin too much (this is typical for hands and face)
  • Harsh-chemical exposure
  • Diabetes
  • Skin conditions

Don’t see a reason above that could be the key to your dry skin problems? There are a few other things could cause dry skin. Genetics can cause dry skin, as well as acne medications, long and hot showers, and aging. (Yes, that’s right — aging.) Be prepared to battle dry skin head on with some of the best products for dry skin. Shop our list above which offers all natural options for dry skin relief like this Superbloom Hydrating Minis Set - For Dry and Normal Skin.


How do you treat dry skin on your face?

No one likes having dry skin, and especially not a dry and scaley face. Here are some ways to avoid the dryness on your most-looked-at asset:

  • Use warm water rather than burning hot water on skin
  • After washing your face, immediately use a moisturizer
  • Apply lip balm like this Weleda Skin Food Lip Butter, regularly
  • Use face products for dry skin that are gentle and fragrance-free
  • Plug a humidifier in while you sleep to give the air more moisture

If you’re experiencing dry skin on your face, look for the best moisturizer for dry skin by paying attention to the main ingredients that can help battle dryness. Some important ingredients to look out for include shea butter, jojoba oil, mineral oil, hyaluronic acid, and lactic acid. Another place to look that’s sure to help is our list above of the best natural products for dry skin.


What products are bad for dry skin?

One of the biggest reasons people suffer from dry skin is usually the fact that they’re using a soap with super harsh chemicals. Those chemicals can tear at skin, breaking it down and leaving it high and dry. Many skincare products, including ones that claim they’re the best skincare products for dry skin, can hide bad ingredients in their ingredients lists. Before buying a product take a look at the ingredients list to see if it includes any of these that specifically dry out skin:

  • Ammonium lauryl sulfate
  • Sodium lauryl sulfate
  • Salicylic acid
  • Sodium laureth sulfate
  • Willow bark

Sometimes the best moisturizer for dry skin can actually be an oil. Oils can condition the skin to make it look less scaley. If you’re new to using facial oils, try this Superbloom Daily Dew Cleansing Oil - For Dry & Normal Skin, or check out our list of the 15 best face oils for every skin type.
