What’s The Best Skin Oil For The Dry Skin On My Face?

Renee Rouleau's Pro Remedy Oil

Dry, dull and flaky skin can be caused from airplane travel, retinol or retinoid use, rosacea, eczema, sunburn, windburn, winter, dry climate, Accutane and excessive exfoliation. Why does dry skin occur? Your skin has a moisture barrier made of natural lipids that keep moisture in the skin and irritants out. When this barrier is damaged, it creates tiny, invisible cracks in the skin that allow moisture to escape causing dry, dull and flaky skin. In addition, irritants can enter more easily making skin get red and act more sensitive than usual.

There are certain ingredients that do an excellent job at repairing the skin’s moisture barrier and many of them can be found in Pro Remedy Oil or if you’re looking for a chemical peel for your skin type, read this article.
