Dry skin and sensitive skin can feel like an everyday battle. The redness, the tightness, the lingering itchiness. For some, dry skin seems to appear overnight, while other women experience it regularly, year after year.
While everyone’s skin journey is unique, there is one reaction that is universal—not feeling your best in your own skin. Find out more about the symptoms of sensitive dry skin on your face and how Japanese beauty technology can help renew your face to dewy softness.
You may notice it looking in the mirror or as your fingertips graze over an area that is uneven on your face. The symptoms and severity of skin sensitivity vary from woman to woman, but some of the common signs and symptoms include skin that looks and feels:
The causes of dry, sensitive skin are various.. Each day, your skin is exposed to many different conditions and ingredients that affect its natural moisture barrier. Environmental and climate factors like cold winter air, humidity, air conditioning, sun exposure, and seasonal temperature changes alter your skin’s moisture levels. Personal habits can cause dry, sensitive skin by stripping skin of its natural oils, too. Frequent contact with water, over-exfoliating, poor nutrition, stress, harsh soaps and detergents are a few examples.
Not only does your moisture barrier fluctuate with daily exposure, it also changes over longer periods of time. Scientists have discovered that ceramides, natural lipids that protect the skin and keep it strong, decrease due to aging. When ceramides are lost, the protective barrier shrinks and skin becomes drier and more sensitive.
Your skin has a barrier made of natural lipids to keep moisture in and irritants out. When environmental factors, personal habits and aging damage this barrier, invisible cracks begin to form. These tiny cracks allow moisture to escape and allow irritants to enter more easily. When your skin’s natural defenses are lowered, dry skin and sensitive skin can appear. So how can you truly repair your skin and keep it that way? The answer you’ve been looking for may be ceramides.
Ceramides, the essential and best ingredient in skincare for dry skin and sensitive skin...
Many moisturisers only treat the symptoms of dry skin. To truly restore your skin, you need to use a product that has enough ceramides to actually repair the skin’s protective barrier.
After years of research, our Japanese skincare experts have developed the exclusive Ceramide Care Technology that works with your skin to protect and replenish its natural moisturisers. By strengthening your skin’s moisture and defense barrier, ceramides replace dry, sensitive skin with soft, luminous skin. With daily use, you can experience the same deeply-hydrated glow that has made Curél the number one facial skincare brand for sensitive skin in Japan.
