The impact azelaic acid has on your skin

Azelaic Acid and Dry Skin: How To Keep Your Skin Radiant

Jun 20, 2024Abi oye

Let's talk about dry skin and how much of a persistent issue it can be. Dry skin can leave your complexion feeling super tight, rough, and maybe uncomfortable. If you've ever been on the hunt for an effective solution, you might have come across Azelaic Acid (A very trendy topic on TikTok).

The remarkable ingredient is renowned for its benefits in treating various skin conditions, but how does it impact dry skin? Let's explore how this magical ingredient will be helpful for you, and explore an alternative too.

What is Azelaic Acid?

A naturally occurring acid found in grains like barley, wheat and rye (Yup, crazy right?). It's known for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making it a popular choice for treating acne and rosacea. However, its benefits extend far beyond these. This hero ingredient can also be used for those with dry skin, helping to soothe and rejuvenate the skin.

How Azelaic Acid Benefits Dry Skin

Exfoliation and Cell Renewal

One of the key benefits of the acid is its ability to gently exfoliate the skin. For people with dry skin, it's particularly beneficial as it helps remove dead skin cells that can accumulate and cause a dull, flaky appearance. By promoting cell turnover, azelaic acid reveals fresher, smoother skin underneath, enhancing your skin's natural radiance.

Reducing Redness and Irritation

Dry skin often comes with redness and irritation, which can be exacerbated by harsh weather conditions or skincare products that have too many harsh ingredients. Azelaic acid's anti-inflammatory properties help to calm irritated skin, reducing redness and making your complexion look more even and healthy.

Enhancing Hydration

While the acid isn't necessarily a hydrating ingredient, its ability to reduce inflammation and exfoliate gently allows your skint o better absorb moisture from other skincare products. This makes it an excellent addition to any dry skin routines ensuring your skin stays hydrated and nourished.

But... if this isn't for you. We have an alternative!
