Hello Farah, thank you for your question
Dry skin is the initial cause of inflammation or infection in the skin. Therefore, dry skin should not be underestimated, but rather prevented or treated early.
Before discussing how to prevent or treat dry skin, first you need to know what things or conditions trigger it:
doing activities in an air-conditioned room for a long period of time and regularly taking hot / warm baths, including steam baths (saunas) using chemical-based soaps that can remove the skin's natural moisture as age exposures to substances that irritate certain medical conditions, such as dermatitis , psoriasis To prevent or treat dry skin, apart from avoiding various things that trigger dry skin, you are also recommended to use a moisturizer. Choose and use a moisturizer according to your skin type. If you have dry skin, it is advisable to use an oil-based moisturizer after every shower. For example, use a light moisturizer, such as lotion, in the morning or afternoon and a heavier moisturizer, such as body butter, at night. We recommend that you choose a moisturizer that contains antioxidants and avoid moisturizers that contain alcohol and added fragrances.
Regarding your question, here are some things you need to know:
Jojoba oil - often used to soften and moisturize the skin, commonly found in various beauty and skin care products, such as lotions, cosmetics, and skin cleansers
Unfortunately, scientific research is still needed regarding its benefits, this is squalene oil - derived from the extraction of fish oil, especially shark liver oil, is contained in various skin care products because it is believed to be able to moisturize dry skin
however, further research is still needed to prove this. If in doubt, you should first consult a skin specialist. The doctor will determine the best product according to the type and skin problem you are currently facing.
Hopefully this is useful
