Aging face with over dry skin: follow our dermatologist advice

Aging face with over dry skin: follow our dermatologist advice

Written By Dr Surbhi, MD Skin

Aging face is especially prone to dry skin because the secretions of oil glands reduces in old age. The ageing face can be handled with potent anti-wrinkle ingredients like retinol, peptides, CoQ10, anti-aging herbs etc. however, a wrong anti-wrinkle ingredient like retinoids can lead to excessive dryness.

Secondly, please set your expectations right because even the best of anti-wrinkle cream or home remedy cannot erase your wrinkles. You will need fillers, Botox, peels or LASERS to erase wrinkles, age spots or sagging skin that is already showing up on your face. So, let us find out how we can prevent or tone down the signs of aging in your dry skin.

 

The destiny of your skin is in your hand...all it needs is the discipline!

Before we go into further detail, I must tell that you need to put your heart and soul into this skincare regime to get the results. The regime is simple and it involves:

  • 3 daily steps in the morning and night: CTM- cleansing, toning, and moisturising
  • 2 weekly steps on Sundays that include scrubbing followed by face pack.

The key to rediscover your beauty is discipline to follow the steps given below for at least 3 months. Though I can't promise you flawless skin but you can definitely gain a healthy skin. Also, as you change from the chemical laden products to green skin care products, your skin might need time to adjust. However, you should not get excessive redness, burning, rash, or breakouts with this regime. In such cases, discontinue the regime because we are using potent herbs and essential oils that might NOT suit some of you. Lastly, you still have to use sunscreen and night cream from the market because a high level of expertise is needed to make these products at home. I am describing your morning, evening and weekly regime in tables given below:
