Dry or dehydrated skin remains one of the most common concerns seen by dermatologists. dry skin is caused by a lack of sebum or oil as well as a weak skin barrier, meaning your skin struggles to retain the protective oils, or lipids, it produces within. Meanwhile, dehydrated skin is a temporary state which can change and fluctuate depending on the seasons and the external environment. When the temperatures are warm, lightweight cream may have been enough to quench dry summer skin as your skin oil glands are activated and the increase of humidity in the air. However, what worked for your skin during the warmer weather season may not necessarily be what your skin requires during the winter. Wintertime leaves the air dry and cold, which can strip away the skin’s natural oils. This makes the skin more susceptible to irritation and sensitivities from the environment. Thus, it’s best to switch lightweight cream to rich cream during winter, as rich creams are a bit thicker and can moisturise more effectively. Here are some of the best Australian made skincare products recommended by dermatologists to help you make better equipped for giving the right care to your skin.
