Your skin may be "dry" if it:

  • Looks dull, rough and often flaky

  • Might sometimes crack, peel, or become itchy, irritated or inflamed

  • Feels like there’s a “tugging” sensation across your skin (less elasticity)

  • Tends towards more lines or fine wrinkles


Recommended Skin Care Routine:

Dry skin generally refers to skin with low lipid/sebum/oil levels. Oils are needed in skin to hold moisture in, and without these adequate sebum levels, skin can appear dull, rough, and flaky, with pronounced wrinkles. Low sebum levels can also lead to inflammation and increased sensitivity in the skin. Making adjustments to your diet, lifestyle, hormones, etc, can do wonders for healing dry skin from the inside out - and AIKI SKIN offers tips in this area in our Quick-Reference Guide for Dry Skin (learn more below). But using our custom formulated natural products can do wonders for healing dry skin as well, as they contain rich emollients to heal and provide a protective barrier to prevent moisture loss.

Internal Solutions

  • It’s all about hydration! Replace all chemical products that have drying, sensitizing ingredients (like alcohols) with 100% natural, hydrating ones (like shea butter).
  • Drink LOTS of water (12 glasses or more a day) to help flush out toxins, balance water and sebum levels, and hydrate your skin from the inside-out.
  • Start your day off with a green smoothie (preferably with healthy fats)to help you get more vital nutrients and vitamins into your system.
  • Consume plenty of healthy fats such as avocados, ghee, coconut and olive oil, and nuts and seeds.
  • Incorporate regular eating and sleeping patterns - preferably sleeping by 11pm and aiming for at least 7 hours of sleep each night to allow your body to fully regenerate.
  • Limit sun exposure and invest in an all-natural sunscreen to protect your skin.
