Did you know that your skin is constantly at work?
It’s your body’s first line of defense against illness and infection; regulates body temperature and circulation; and synthesises Vitamin D, which is vital in bone and cell growth, as well as maintaining your immune system.
While it takes care of all these things, the skin in turn also needs our care. Especially when it comes to acne-prone, dry, and baby’s skin. Fragile skin is especially sensitive and more prone to damage, which is why these skin types require more protection and care.
We’ve all had fragile skin at one point or another, so good skincare should be part of our everyday routine. Read on to find out about natural ways to take care of your family’s skin.
1. Stay hydrated (i.e. drink up!)
Though the water you drink doesn’t go straight to your skin, skin cells are made of water. Your body loses large quantities of water a day, and so replenishing your body’s water supply is important—not just for your skin, but for your overall health.
2. Eat the good stuff
What you consume affects your health and the state of your skin. Make sure that the food you’re preparing is rich in:
- Vitamin A (e.g. low-fat dairy products, carrots)
- Antioxidants (e.g. strawberries, beans, prunes)
- Essential fatty acids (e.g. salmon, walnuts)
- Healthy oils (e.g. extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil)
- Selenium (e.g. whole-wheat bread, turkey)
3. Use gentle, natural products
Choosing the right products is essential in maintaining our skin’s health. Even with the right skincare routine, harsh products could cause or make skin conditions worse.
Look for mild products that aim to protect, soothe, and repair your skin with natural ingredients, like those from A-Derma, one of the few plant-based dermatology brands in Singapore.
A-Derma is the only dermo-cosmetic brand to use Rhealba® Oat, a natural, plant-based active ingredient specially developed by A-Derma laboratories to soothe and protect fragile skin. Grown in Southwestern France exclusively for A-Derma, Rhealba® Oat was chosen for its nurturing properties that restore the balance and suppleness of fragile skin.

4. Clean your skin gently
Your skin is exposed to a multitude of pollutants every day, and cleansing removes oil, dirt, germs, and dead skin cells. Cleansing also helps manage your skin’s pH levels, maintaining hydration.
Try A-DERMA’s range of gentle cleansers, which is the ideal daily cleansing care for fragile, very dry skin and even atopic skin (EXOMEGA is the range specifically for atopic skin). The best part? It’s safe for the whole family!
5. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise
People with dry skin probably already know the benefits of moisturisers. However, even those with oily skin should also use moisturisers, as they have been scientifically proven to help prevent water loss and replace skin lipids and other compounds.
Try A-Derma’s moisturisers and lotions from their Essentials line, all formulated to moisturise and nourish the fragile skin of children and adults. Boasting a light, non-sticky texture, each product was made to soften and refresh all skin types.
