Why is My Skin So Dry?

Introduction: The Quest for Radiant Healthy Skin

A Deep Dive into Skin Health and Mindfulness

Hello, I’m Dr. Sunny Dhesi from Vysana Life. In today’s newsletter, we’re exploring crucial aspects of skin health, focusing on hydration, the impact of diet, and understanding menopause. Join me as we navigate these topics, offering insights and practical advice to enhance your wellbeing.

Why is my skin so dry? The Dilemma of Dry Skin

Understanding and Tackling the Root Causes

One of the most common concerns I encounter in our virtual skincare consultations is the question: “Why is my skin so dry?” The answer often lies in our daily routines and product choices. Over-exfoliation, for instance, is a frequent culprit. Whether it’s physical scrubs or chemical exfoliants, overuse can strip away your skin’s natural barrier, leading to tightness and dehydration.

Step 1: Simplify Your Skincare

Back to Basics for Barrier Recovery

The first step in addressing dry skin is to simplify your skincare routine. Opt for gentle, basic cleansers and moisturisers, avoiding harsh exfoliants. This approach allows your skin to reset and rebuild its natural protective barrier.

Step 2: Introduce Hydrating Products

Enhancing Moisture with Targeted Skincare

Once your skin begins to stabilise, it’s time to introduce products that lock in moisture. Look for ingredients like ceramides and fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining skin hydration. A product I often recommend is the ‘Made of More Salvation Rescue Balm’, particularly effective for nighttime use.

The Impact of Diet on Skin Health

Avoiding Ultra-Processed Foods for Optimal Skin

Diet plays a significant role in skin health. Ultra-processed foods, high in sugar, preservatives, and unhealthy fats, can exacerbate skin issues. I advise patients to steer clear of sugary cereals, ready meals, processed meats, and other such products. Opting for natural, whole foods can significantly improve not just your skin, but overall health.

Menopause: A Discussion on Health and Workplace

Understanding and Supporting the Menopausal Journey

As a GP focusing on Women’s Health, I believe it’s crucial to support women through their menopausal journey. This includes understanding how menopause can impact work life. Recent discussions classify menopause as a disability, highlighting the need for greater awareness and support in the workplace. It’s a topic that requires empathy, understanding, and open conversation.
