Oür Solution to Dry & Sensitive Skin

Oür Solution to Dry & Sensitive Skin

Do you ever wonder if you have dry or sensitive skin? Are they the same?

Everything you need to know about dry & sensitive skin. 

First, skin types can change over time, and It is hard to distinguish between dry and sensitive skin because these conditions often coexist.

Sensitive skin is often referred to as a skin type, but it's possible to have oily, sensitive, dry, sensitive, or normal, sensitive skin. Regardless of skin type, if you have sensitive skin, it may appear red and feel burning, itching, or dry. 

Dry skin occurs when your skin loses too much water and oil, so it doesn't have enough moisture to keep it feeling soft. The medical term for dry skin is xeroderma (pronounced “ze-ROW-derm-ah”). Xerosis (pronounced “ze-ROW-sis”) is severely dry skin. Dry skin feels like rough patches of your skin that can flake or look scaly. Dry skin is common and can affect anyone at any age.

Second, dry skin is particularly prone to sensitivity, and sensitive skin is often dry. This can make it challenging to identify the underlying cause and provide appropriate treatment. We encourage you to get your skin assessed by a professional aesthetician to confirm the course of treatment. 

The leading causes of a dry &sensitive skin barrier are:

  • Environmental weather conditions (cold or dry)
  • Sun damage by spending too much time in direct sunlight
  • Overbathing
  • Using harsh cleansers & soaps
  • Unbalanced skin pH
  • Washing skin excessively
  • Skin conditions

To enhance the skin’s beauty to reveal its healthy radiance, Quannessence recommends the following personal daily home-care ritual program:

Step 1: Cleansing

Remove all face, neck, décolleté, and eye makeup, and debris by applying one to two pumps of Facial Cleansing Cream and a small amount of water. Using your fingertips, massage the cleanser for three minutes into your skin. Remove with a warm, well-saturated face cloth. Repeat if necessary to ensure no residual product remains.

Step 3: Cleansing

Once a week in the evening, after using the Sage Peel Gel, apply 1-3 pumps of Multi-Fruit Peel Cleanser to the face, neck, and décolleté while avoiding the eyes. Using your fingertips, gently massage into the skin using a circular motion and leave on the face for 3-5 minutes. Remove with three consecutive warm, well-saturated face clothes. Repeat until there is no tingling sensation on the skin.

Step 5: Treating

The skin is now receptive to Quannessence advanced serums and can offer the greatest benefits to your skin. Apply a pea-sized Hyaluronic (PUR) Hydrating Serum to the back of your less dominant hand. Using the fingertips of your dominant hand, feather the serum over the entire face, neck, and décolleté and tap into the skin.
