Hypoallergenic Products for Dry Skin

You should use hypoallergenic products if you have dry skin. This is because dry skin has damaged barrier strength so allergens (like fragrance and preservative product ingredients) and irritants (like harsh soaps and house cleaners) are more likely to cause rashes. I have hypoallergenic products that really work to nourish and heal your dry skin.

First, understand that dry skin is simply skin with less water. What causes dry skin? Some people are born prone to dry skin, while other people get it from living in dry climates, or from using harsh soaps and solvents that remove skin oils that protect against water loss. Whatever the cause, the treatment is similar.

There are 2 key steps for healing dry skin:

  1. Wash your skin with only gentle cleansers and avoid hot water
  2. After washing, moisturize your skin to trap water by applying a rich moisturizing cream within 3 minutes after toweling it dry 

Step 1 is important to stop the loss of skin oils, which happens when you use strong cleansers and hot water. Just like cleaning greasy pots and pans, strong soap and hot water remove oil well and when it comes to your skin, you only want to remove surface oil and dirt -- not the oils in the outer skin cell layer that protect your skin from dryness.

Step 2 is important because moist skin is not greasy, it's hydrated with water. Your skin becomes hydrated when you get it wet. You trap that hydration with a cream applied before the water has entirely evaporated. The rule of thumb we dermatologists try to teach our dry skin patients is that moisturizers are to be applied within 3 minutes of toweling dry after washing or bathing.

My hypoallergenic products for these 2 key steps are important to healing dry skin, and they are safe even for sensitive skin. They don't have the fragrances and harsh preservatives known to be a high risk for causing allergic skin reactions.

  • My cleansers are gentle because they are either classic dermatologic SYNDETS (synthetic non-soap cleansers) or naturally made soaps rich in glycerin. I also have a hypoallergenic Natural Skin Toner made without harsh alcohols for sensitive facial skin.
  • My hydrating products contain botanical oils and/or water-binding ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, ceramides, squalane, and PCA (a component of your skin's natural moisturizing factor).  

I've thought through all the details of dry skin care, and have worked hard so that you can find the right product combination for your unique skin type and skin problems. My product pages contain detailed information so you can make smart, dermatologist-quality choices for your dry skin care.
