Dry Facial Skin Is Accompanied By Burning And Itching?
Morning, I am 21 years old, I want to ask about my facial skin which is dry to sore and itchy and also makes skin tone uneven. If I go to a beauty clinic to do various treatments such as face rejuv, is it okay? Or should I just leave it alone until it gets a little better? Thank you for your attention, hope the doctor answers all questions
Hello good morning Dea.
Dry facial skin accompanied by burning and itching may be a sign of skin irritation. This skin irritation can occur due to ingredients from facial skin care (such as soap, cream, toner, etc.), cosmetic ingredients used, often direct exposure to dry air (for example from air conditioning), direct exposure to sunlight for a long time, and because the skin is too dry due to hormones.
We cannot confirm the current condition of your facial skin without conducting an in-person examination to estimate the right treatment for you at this time. Therefore, we suggest that you first check your facial skin with a doctor or skin specialist (SPKK) before deciding to take action. In general, facial skin measures cannot be done if the skin condition is very inflamed or has severe irritation because it can exacerbate the complaint. The doctor may give certain drugs first to relieve or reduce the irritation and inflammation you experience, then after the inflammation subsides, then take action if necessary.
Regarding Face Rejuvination, it is a combination of various facial care procedures that aim to restore the appearance of a younger face. The face rejuvenation procedure that is currently being done in many beauty clinics is using a laser. This laser can improve skin texture and reduce redness and dark spots due to age. This face rejuvenation procedure is generally done regularly and gradually to get maximum results. To be able to perform this action, it is necessary to first check the facial skin by a doctor.
While you are waiting to meet your doctor's schedule, here are some suggestions we can give to help relieve complaints:
Consume lots of water at least 2.5 liters a day. Avoid using facial soaps, facial care products, and cosmetics that contain alcohol, perfume, and other ingredients that can trigger dry skin. You can use unscented baby soap (usually soap for newborns) for a while. avoid cigarette smoke, avoid direct exposure to sunlight and dry air, sleep enough, that is, 8 hours a day, increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables, avoid scrubbing the facial skin because it will exacerbate the pain experienced avoid washing your face with warm water for a while, instead use water ordinary temperature or cold water you can try using natural masks, such as real honey masks to help moisturize the skin and relieve inflammation
That's all, I hope this helps
Greetings, dr. Denisa
