Tight skin 

In reality, tight skin is damaged skin.Thus, tightness is a sign of skin dryness. Dry skin occurs when skin cells produce less sebum (natural oils) than necessary. This lack of sebum results in the skin feeling tight with a  dull or rough-looking texture. Cleanse with a oil based cleanser so you are stripping your skin such as a Complexion Bar. Add hydration with Skin Quench and nourish with Black gold through out the day. 

Flaky Skin 

Flaky skin occurs when the protective natural oil produced by the skin begins to dry up. As a result, water loss in dry skin is 75 times greater than normal skin. Exfoliate with Saffron mask to remove any of the dry skin left behind. Cleanse with a oil based cleanser so you are stripping your skin such as a Complexion Bar. Skin needs hydration use Skin Quench and nourish with Black gold through out the day. 

Itchy skin

Dry skin is skin that doesn’t have enough moisture in it to keep it feeling soft and supple. People with dry skin may have rough-feeling patches that flake off or look scaly. This can lead to itchiness causing more flakiness. Less products which irritates the skin is better. Cleanse with a oil based cleanser so you are stripping your skin such as a Complexion Bar. Soften the skin with Saffron Balm. This will help to keep the skin stay moisturised preventing further skin issues. 

Eczema 

Eczema is the name for a group of skin conditions that cause dry, irritated skin. Certain substances or conditions called trigger factors can cause eczema to flare-up: Irritants such as soaps and detergents, wool, skin infections, dry skin, low humidity, heat, sweating or emotional stress. Allergens such as dust mites, pollen, moulds, or foods. Its best to use minim products to stop irritation. On clean skin we suggest  Saffron Balm. This will help to keep the skin stay moisturised preventing further skin issues. 

How can I prevent dry skin?

Applying Elixir every day can help soften dry skin. You can also try these at-home methods:

  • Cleanse with a mild, fragrance-free, moisturizing soap.
  • Limit showers or baths to no longer than 10 minutes, and use warm (not hot) water.
  • Manage stress (it can aggravate eczema and other skin conditions).
  • Minimize sun exposure, which evaporates oils and moisture from the skin.
  • Moisturize as soon as you finish bathing, while your skin is damp and soft.
  • Pat skin dry with a soft towel.
  • Prevent dehydration and keep skin hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids.
  • Stop smoking (nicotine reduces blood flow, which dries out skin).
  • Use a humidifier to add moisture to your home’s air.
