Rough & Dry Skin

Rough dry skin is due to skin stress affecting the outer layer. This can be due to a variety of factors, including:


  • Lack of moisture: Dry skin is common when the skin loses moisture and essential oils, leading to a weakened skin barrier. This can happen due to environmental factors like low humidity, harsh weather conditions (like cold or windy weather), or excessive bathing with hot water and harsh soaps.
  • Aging: As people age, their skin tends to produce less natural oils, making it more prone to dryness and roughness.
  • Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, thyroid disorders, and diabetes can cause dry, rough skin. 
  • Poor skincare habits: Using harsh soaps, overexfoliating, or not moisturizing regularly can strip the skin of its natural oils.
  • Medications: Cholesterol lowering pills and isotretinoin are known for causing rough dry skin.

Treatments for Dry & Rough Skin

Treating this condition first starts with:

  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water and apply hydrating creams to rehydrate your skin.
  • Moisturizing: Use a rich moisturizer regularly to help replenish any lost moisture and strengthen the skin barrier. Look for moisturizers containing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, shea butter, or ceramides.
  • Gentle cleansing: Use mild, fragrance free cleansers and avoid soaps, hot water and harsh scrubs when washing your skin. Limit showers or baths to no more than once daily, and pat your skin dry with a soft towel rather than rubbing.
  • Humidifying: Use a humidifier indoors, especially during the winter months or in dry climates, to add moisture to the air and prevent skin from drying out.
  • Skin Protection: Wear protective clothing, such as gloves and scarves, in cold weather, and apply sunscreen daily to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
  • Avoid irritants: Limit exposure to harsh chemicals, detergents, and perfumed products that can dry out and irritate the skin.
  • Exfoliate gently: Use a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover, but avoid overdoing it as excessive exfoliation can cause more dryness.


HydraFacial uses Vortex Fusion technology to deeply cleanse and exfoliate with a gentle peel to uncover a new layer of skin, removes impurities from pores with a painless gentle suction, and saturates the skin’s surface with moisturizers and antioxidants.
