Dealing with Skin Dryness

Learn how to prevent winter-dry skin, and how to make some quick and super-effective remedies for curing it if you’ve already succumb to it. As after one day of trying these tips you will have smoother, younger, delightfully moisturised skin right here:

● Moisturise the right way: After you’ve exfoliated, you have to moisture. Creams and other skin care products that are based on natural hypoallergenic ingredients are the best. Try and avoid using commercial creams and lotions that contain mineral oils and other petroleum products as it will not benefit your skin.

● Include good oils into your diet: A good preventive measure is to add to your diet essential oils that contained raw organic butter, cod liver oil, Omega-3 eggs, coconut oil, and fresh cold-water fish.

●  Limit the amount of hot water contact: Try to limit the amount of time you spend in the bath or shower to fifteen minutes or less as the hot water dries out the skin. Bathing should be done no more than once a day. If you bathe too frequently you will remove the natural oils from your skin causing dryness.

● Use a humidifier in your home during the central heating season. The additional moisture in the air will help your skin condition improve almost immediately. So, in the cold and dry winter months, place the humidifier in your bedroom or other area where you spend a significant amount of time.

● Use only gentle cleansers: Avoid cleansers such as deodorant soaps and harsh abrasives. These can cause your skin to feel like a dried-out. Instead use a moisturising soap, soap-free product, or a gentle, grain-based cleanser.

● Increase your water level: That’s right drink up! Make sure to drink at least 8 glasses of pure water a day to keep your skin and body properly hydrated. Drink more if you’re super active.

● Protect your skin from the elements: Wind, sun, heat, cold, and dry office and airplane air can quickly cause or exacerbate the condition of dry skin. All areas that are exposed to the sun, such as the face, ears, hands, and back of the neck should have a moisturizer containing sun block or a sunscreen of SPF 15 or greater applied daily.
