But this neglect is not the only cause of skin dehydration. Other people, on the contrary, apply a moisturiser to their face every morning, but still, have dry skin. This can happen if you use the wrong product, one that is not rich enough for the epidermis. External factors can also cause the skin to become rougher and more sensitive, for example when the weather is too cold, too dry, or when it is windy.
While people often talk about problems with oily skin, due to an overproduction of sebum, too little is said regarding problems with dry skin. To solve this problem, our advice is to opt for more suitable skincareproducts and to also apply masks regularly. For moisturised and healthy skin, nothing is better than taking care of your skin at home using all-natural products, so here is our recipe!
What you need to make this recipe:
- ½ pear
- 1 teaspoon oat flakes
- 2 tablespoons of yoghurt
- A blender
- A resealable glass jar
Steps to follow:
- Peel the pear and cut it into pieces
- Place the pear pieces in a blender
- Add the oat flakes
- Pour in the yoghurt
- Blend until the mixture is smooth and even
Your mask is now ready!
You can, therefore, make a homemade and eco-friendly mask in less than 5 minutes, and for less than £2. Seven times cheaper than a product sold in supermarkets, and at least ten times cheaper than having a treatment done by a professional, this mask is an ideal way to give your skin a hydration boost. Note that it is also free of chemicals and endocrine disruptors, so it can be used by everyone.
Why is this nourishing mask right for you?
Recommended for the treatment of eczema and atopic dermatitis, oats help to repair fragile skin by restoring the skin barrier, reducing itching, and regulating inflammation. Oats are very often found in skin creams because of their lipid and protein content, which have humectant and emollient properties. Using oats is an excellent way to prevent skin dehydration since they can protect the skin from external irritations by maintaining the skin's protective barrier.
Pear, concentrated hydration:
Composed of 85% water, pears are an ideal way to provide a dose of hydration to the epidermis.
Yoghurt, soft and nourishing:
Yoghurt is a perfect way to fight against dry skin. Why is this? Because it contains lactic acid, which helps to cleanse the epidermis and exfoliate dead skin. Rich in lipids, it has a gentle action perfect for sensitive skin.
