A dry skin is a skin that does not secrete enough sebum to ensure a barrier function of the effective hydrolipidic film to fight against external aggressions. This is mainly due to sebaceous glands with insufficient sebum production…
Many factors, such as pollution, air conditioning, sunlight and UV rays, wind or stress, weaken the skin of the face and cause the tightness you are suffering from on a daily basis. These factors also cause frequent desquamations in dry skin. Unfortunately, a type of dry skin is not a transient skin condition, but a constant condition throughout the years and that evolves according to the seasons. The needs of dry skin seem obvious: it is necessary to bring nutrients to the skin to compensate for this lack of sebum. PATYKA certified organic care with ultra-effective active ingredients is a solution to bring comfort and vitality to your skin.
Some active ingredients are recommended to overcome your dry skin: lipids but also ceramides, moisturizing active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, emollient agents but also vitamin E and C to boost the cellular activity of the skin and preserve it from skin aging. These ingredients can be found in a moisturizing cream, a face oil, a serum, but also in a make-up remover and a face cleanser if you practice, correctly, double cleansing.
First and foremost, you must learn to distinguish between dry and dehydrated skin. Dry skin lacks lipids, and therefore fatty agents, while dehydrated skin sorely lacks water. Obviously, we can combine these two problems: dehydration is a skin condition that is grafted to a type of skin, so it is not uncommon to see dry skin that is also dehydrated. All skin types (normal, dry, oily or combination), can be dehydrated at a given time, this is a skin condition at a T-moment, while dry skin is a permanent skin type. If you still can’t make the distinction, know that dry skin is often accompanied by a lack of sebum all over the body: dry hair, dry skin on the legs, arms, knees etc… It is a general condition that makes us addicted to fatty products such as balms, oils, ointments and butters of all kinds.
Thanks to Patyka’s expertise in certified organic skincare products, your skin will regain its suppleness and comfort. To take care of tight and undernourished skin, it is necessary to adopt an overall beauty routine for your face and body. With Patyka products, you will fight the dryness of your skin.
First of all, it is important to use a gentle makeup remover that does not attack the skin. To do this, use a make-up remover in the form of oil or milk to avoid the use of micellar water, which is too abrasive and irritating to dry skin.
L'Huile Démaquillante Éclair consists of a trio of cold extracted vegetable oils (Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil), and offers the skin something to protect it without obstructing it, while moisturizing it. Adopting it means dissolving your make-up while taking care of your skin. The dryness zones fade over time.
Then, forward to the layering. It involves combining the application of several thin layers of hydration and nutrition with quality vegetable oils, and serums adapted to target the specific needs of dry skin.
Let’s start with the Detox Cleansing Foam enriched with Aloe Vera with moisturizing and soothing properties, to gently cleanse your face.
Then dry skin means skin that peels… the desquamations on the forehead, the wings of the nose, the contour of the mouth especially in winter, but also when the season changes, it’s over! A gentle exfoliation will help you regain smooth skin and make your skin radiant. The Smoothing Scrub Double Action combines three gentle exfoliating active ingredients in a single treatment: it smoothes fine lines but also instantly brings radiance to your face thanks to the Fruit Acids it contains.
The second step in our layering routine is the application of a facial lotion to remove traces of limestone from the water after cleansing which causes a real feeling of tightness for dry skin. To do this, opt for an application of the Soothing Milky Lotion twice a day, with the softening power to prepare the skin to receive the following treatments. It is the first source of hydration for the face, it awakens the complexion, plumps the skin thanks to Aloe Vera and soothes it with organic Mauve extract.
Next, apply serum, this targeted concentrate, which quickly penetrates the skin and the deep layers of the epidermis. Hydra-Booster Serum aims to restore the skin’s moisture balance by deeply moisturizing it and maintaining the level of hydration throughout the day. Enriched with Tremella, Bisabolol Végétal and Hyaluronic Acid, it moisturizes, soothes and repairs the skin. The epidermis is hydrated in its deep layers thanks to the Eau de Glacier du Mont-Blanc and thus makes disappear all the sensations of discomfort and tightness. The Fundamental Plumping Serum is a true youth-friendly booster with a record concentration of Pure and Vegetal Hyaluronic Acid (1.6%) that offers instant hydration to the skin. This anti-aging serum strengthens, plumps and fills wrinkles to give back
Hydration of the eye contour is important, especially for dry skin. Repeated exposure to pollution and blue lights, stress and fatigue accelerate skin aging. The look loses its radiance, the skin is dehydrated and wrinkles settle. The Eye Energizing Gel visibly smoothes wrinkles and fine lines to maintain a youthful and sparkling look. Rich in Hyaluronic Acid Pure & Vegetal, our gel helps maintain a high level of hydration by retaining water in the cells. As for the Crème Jeunesse du Regard, it is our eye contour with anti-aging action. This truly targeted treatment soothes, moisturizes, corrects signs of aging and brightens the eyes.
Then continue with a moisturizer to protect the hydrolipidic film and limit the insensitive loss of water, especially by preserving the hydration provided by the serum in the deep layers of the skin. Our Hydra-Soothing Rich Cream quenches, nourishes and soothes dry skin. It is rich in Eau de Glacier du Mont Blanc and organic Mango Butter to provide an intense comfort without greasy finish. For an anti-aging action, our Remodelante Jeunesse Texture Riche cream acts in depth and on the surface to correct signs of aging and smooth the skin thanks to its formula with the exclusive complex of 8 anti-aging active ingredients.
