Finding the right skincare products doesn’t usually happen overnight. You have to do some testing before you realize what works well for your skin. The most important thing is to determine the type of skin you have. If you’re a lucky one to have normal skin that ‘collaborates’ well with various products, then you shouldn’t have a problem finding the right products. However, ladies with combination, oily or dry skin, may have to face some challenges before they find the right creams, cleansers and toners.
One such skin care line focused on making products that will keep your skin healthy, glowing and moisturized is Kenkay. Developed in 1983, their gentle moisturisers and cleansers are excellent for all skin types. Over the years, the brand has expanded to designing top-quality products for dry skin and skin hydration. So, if you’re still trying to find the right products, here are several excellent Kenkay skin products that will hydrate your skin and keep it healthy.
Kenkay Aqueous Cream
Kenkay Aqueous Cream BP is a soap-free cleanser you can use with or without water. It is so gentle and won’t strip the natural oils from your skin. The fact that you can wash your face with or without water will help you maintain your skin’s natural moisture balance. You can use it as a total body cleanser because it’s gentle and won’t harm any part of your skin. It is suitable for all skin types.
Kenkay Aqueous Cream BP can be also used for removing makeup, grime and dirt. And you can use it to wash your legs, underarms and face. Rub the cream on dry or wet skin. In case you’re going to use it for makeup removing, apply it directly onto your skin with a cotton ball. This cream is meant for external use only and should be stored below 30°C.
Kenkay Sorbolene With Vitamin E
The Kenkay Sorbolene with Vitamin E is a mild moisturiser enriched with Vitamin E. Vitamin E is known to fight the first signs of premature skin ageing. It has a pH-balanced formula and provides long-lasting moisture which is especially helpful for dry and scaling skin. You can use the Kenkay Sorbolene as a body moisturiser (excellent for all skin types), soothe sunburned skin (it lowers the peeling and flaking after sunburns) and as a shaving cream for the face, underarms and legs. It can also be used as a body and face cleanser in case your face skin is sensitive to soap-based products that usually remove the skin’s natural oils.
Kenkay Sorbolene Pure Cream
Kenkay Pure Sorbolene Cream is a gentle moisturise and skin cleanser that works miracles for all skin types and can even be used on babies skin. It’s fragrance-free, hypoallergenic and paraben-free and can be used as a moisturiser for the entire body (all skin types), as a face and body cleanser for people who are too sensitive to soap-based products that remove the natural oils on the skin.
You can also use it as a shaving cream and as a makeup remover. If you’re going to use it as a moisturizer use it twice a day (or as recommended on the instructions). As a soap replacement or shaving cream, apply it on your wet skin and rinse with water. If you’re going to use it as makeup removal, put it directly onto your skin, or apply a small amount on a cotton ball, clean your makeup and then rinse with mild water.
Kenkay Dry Skin Soft White Paraffin
Paraffin is a natural emollient and will soften your skin while working as a moisturiser. It enhances your skin’s moisture after the treatment is finished. Kenkay Dry Skin Soft White Paraffin is a pharmaceutical-grade Petroleum Jelly that is made with top-quality ingredients, ideal for super dry skin. You can apply it onto your hands after washing them, on your knees, elbows, heels or any part of your body that needs extra softening. It’s meant for external use only. Store it at a temperature below 30°C.
Tips to Care for Dry Skin
Avoid Hot Water
Maybe you love showering with hot water, but hot water on your face removes the healthy oils from your skin. When that happens, your skin feels super dry and works extra hard to produce more oil. Hot water will ruin the natural barrier of your skin and when this happens, your skin tends to be prone to acne. If cold water doesn’t feel pleasant, go for lukewarm water.
Use Fragrance-Free Products
Fragrance in cosmetic products has no real purpose but to give you a pleasant experience. When something smells nice, you tend to like it more and probably you will re-purchase it. But, fragrance in products doesn’t come from fruits or flowers, but chemicals that may cause severe reactions to your face.
Fragrance-free products are clean products – they don’t contain extra ingredients which are entirely unnecessary for your skin. Perfume in a moisturizer, for example, can only work as an irritant which could do more damage than good to your skin. Make sure to read the ingredients before purchasing a product.
Use the Right Products
It’s important to know what you use. If you have dry skin, you need products that will hydrate and soothe that dry skin feeling. Be sure to determine the type of your skin before buying any products. If you aren’t sure about it, you can always get a professional opinion from a dermatologist.
