DRY SKIN TYPES
Dry skin types have it a little rough, which is all the more reason to be extra gentle. Dehydrated skin cells (which can be caused by diet, stress and harsh chemicals in products) tend to peel or flake, and can feel dry to the touch. They need replenishment in the form of natural moisturizers that will nourish skin without leaving an oily residue. Things to watch out for: harsh chemical ingredients, such as alcohols and sodium lauryl sulfate, can strip skin of its much-needed moisture, causing oil production to go into overdrive and trigger breakouts.
