How to Treat Dry Skin

Dry skin has a deficiency of moisture and fat that causes scaling, itching and cracking. It can occur for a variety reasons. When sun, wind, and cold leave skin dry and itchy, you need intensive and regular care. Some people have naturally dry skin and may experience frequent symptoms are mentioned. In reality, even the oiliest skin can get dry at times.
Before you can treat dry skin properly, you need to know what is causing it.

Top Causes for Dry Skin:

1. Steamy Showers
Setting the shower to steamy soothes your body, but it won't do your skin any favors. The longer you stay in the shower, the more you dry out your skin.

Quick Fix: Cleanse Coolly and Quickly

Dial down the shower temperature to lukewarm, and keep showers short. Five minutes is enough to get clean without over-drying.

2. Moisture-Robbing Soaps
Don't put just any bar of soap into your shower dish -- they're not all the same. Washing with a harsh soap will cause your skin's natural moisture barrier straight down the drain.
Quick Fix: Go Mild
We recommend using a mild, fragrance-free soap that moisturizes as it cleanses. Bar or liquid doesn't matter, but choose a soap that's specially formulated for dry skin.

3. Aging
As hormone levels change over the years, skin becomes parched.
Quick Fix: Smooth Out the Years
You can't turn back the clock, but you can minimize aging skin changes. Start each morning with a generous rub of a rich serum or cream. To minimize wrinkles while you relieve dryness, look for ingredients such as alpha-hydroxy acids and retinol.

4. Irritants
Is your favorite sweater making you itch? It could be the fabric, fabric softener, or the detergent you're washing it in. Lots of everyday fabrics and products can irritate skin ranging from dryer sheets to perfume.
Quick Fix: Set Products Free
"Free" is the key word when buying any type of cleaner or beauty product. Pick products that are labeled “fragrance and dye free”, and that are specially formulated for sensitive skin.

Wear clothes made of soft, natural fabrics -- cotton and silk instead of wool or polyester. Line your bed with cotton percale sheets for a gentler touch while you sleep.

5. Your Health
Is your skin especially scaly and red? It could be a skin condition, like atopic dermatitis or psoriasis. It can also be a symptom of diseases such as diabetes or an underactive thyroid gland.

What can Clique Clinic help you?
See our doctors to discover and treat the cause. The solution may be as simple as taking a medication or using a prescription cream.
No matter what the cause, dry, itchy skin is NOT something you should have to live with in long-term. If you've tried a few different moisturizers and they're not helping, or the irritation is getting worse, drop by our clinic and try out our Signature Facial Rejuvenation Treatment using Iontophoresis.

What is Clique's Signature Facial Rejuvenation Treatment?
Our skin, the largest organ, effectively prevents passage of many foreign substances into the body. Ironically, not all ingredients in our facial products that contain substances of higher molecular weight (of 500 Daltons and above) are capable of crossing the skin barrier for better absorption. 

Here comes the solution for you - the non-invasive Transdermal procedure that provides a non-invasive, effective and comfortable alternative to injection without needles hitting your skin!
Furthermore, the procedure is short and with NO downtime. Even for very sensitive skin types, a very mild scratching sensation may be experienced at the very beginning; however, it disappears during the treatment. Also, the vibration feature on Transdermal delivery minimizes the electrical pulses perception resulting in a very pleasant experience. 

The main benefits and effects of Clique's Signature Facial Rejuvenation Treatment include:
  • Restores critical moisture 
  • Tightening and firming of tissues
  • Decrease in sensitivity
  • Calms and soothes the skin
