Dry skin face cause

Before we move on to what you can best do against dry skin on your face, it is important to determine the cause. Because why is my face so dry? We are more likely to suffer from dry skin, especially in winter. Dry facial skin is not just annoying. If this happens for a long time or too much, you can also suffer from skin problems such as infections, eczema, etc extremely dry skin and premature skin aging.

NB; a dry skin type is not necessarily een dehydrated skin. This is a skin problem that may require different treatment.

Dry skin on the face is mainly caused by a disturbed sebum production. This is caused and maintained by various factors. We therefore list the most important (co-)causes of dry skin for your face:

  • The use of too aggressive cleaners or drying soap (choose for care products without parabens and sulphates).
  • Cleaning too often and, or too hot.
  • Synthetic additives or alcohol in facial products (also choose make-up without harmful substances).
  • Vitamin deficiency and/or drinking too little water (or too much alcohol ;-)).
  • The use of synthetic fragrances (choose natural perfume oils based on pure essential oil)
  • External influences such as weather conditions (cold, sun, dry air) or polluted air and blue light.
  • Skin conditions such as eczema face (these mainly cause the appearance of flakes).

In general, dry skin on the face for women or men has the same causes. It is true that women suffer from hormonal imbalances slightly more often. This can also cause drier skin, for example in situations such as menopause or pregnancy. In men, shaving the face is a major cause of dry skin. That's why we recommend one organic shaving soap that does not dry out the skin. To get rid of dry skin for good, you benefit most from a treatment with pure natural products. This applies to both men and women.
