Tips For Dry Skin - by Editor

Do have dry skin? Read these useful tips for dry skin. Dry skin can often aggravate in winter leading to itchy and flaky skin. Facial dryness can be a bothersome affair. These effective dry skin care tips will help you understand how you can keep your skin moist and prevent your skin from drying.

Very often people with dry skin experience cracking and peeling of skin especially in winter. People with dry skin always need to keep their skin moisturized. People who have dry skin should select facial products and cleansers that are especially made for dry skin to ensure that their skin receives appropriate amount of moisture.
In the winter, the skin becomes drier due to low temperature and low humidity which deplete the skin of natural lipid layer. It is the natural lipid layer of the skin which helps to keep the skin from drying out.

These are Some Effective Tips for Dry Skin


Avoid Very Hot Water Baths or Showers

Although, hot water baths can be wonderful in winter the fact is that extremely hot water can actually cause your skin to lose moisture. Use lukewarm water instead of hot water. However, if you must have that hot water bath in the freezing weather, restrict yourself to a few minutes rather than half an hour. Once, you are done with the bath immediately apply a moisturizer. According to experts, moisturizers must be applied within three minutes of getting out of the shower.

Avoid Using Soaps Which Dry

Do not use regular soap to wash your face. Use a soap which will retain the moisture of the skin and not strip the skin of its natural oils.

Moisturize Properly

Dry skin is usually sensitive and requires thorough care. For moisturizing avoid using commercial creams and lotions which contain mineral oils and other petroleum products. The best thing would be to apply coconut oil all over the body after showering. Coconut oil naturally contains ingredients which are nourishing for the skin. Use natural creams and lotions.

Diet for Dry Skin

Increase intake of good oils in your diet. Dry skin is more prone to skin diseases like eczema and other uncomfortable skin conditions. Try to include more of essential oils in your diet like coconut oil, cod liver oil and Omega-3 fish oil pills. Studies conducted have shown that people with dry skin who consumed Omega-3 fish oil pills had a remarkable improvement in their skin condition, hair and nails.

Use a Cream at Night

People often do not apply a cream at night just as they apply a day cream. The importance of a night cream is overlooked or is not known. Applying a cream at night is equally important. Using a night cream rich in natural moisturizing oils helps your skin to stay hydrated through the night. At night during sleep the body undergoes a natural repair process. Applying a night cream provides extra nutrients for the skin which will aid the body during the natural repair process.

For Dry Lips

Constantly keep moisturizing lips with a simple lip balm which effectively serves the purpose. Lips are a part of the body which becomes dry more quickly than rest of the body. Licking your lips is not going to help. In fact, licking your lips will make it drier. Continually applying lip balm even after the cracks have healed helps to keep the lips soft and supple.

Avoid Tap Water for the Face and Apply Sunscreen

Avoid tap water for face. Tap water contains a lot of undesirable harsh chemicals like chlorine which are drying for the face. Instead use cold mineral water and an alcohol free toner to cleanse your face. Always step out into the sun only wearing a sunscreen. Exposure to sun rays increases the risk of developing dry skin.
Dry skin can be quite an annoyance as it can cause itching and flaky skin. These effective dry skin care tips will help to bring about a change in dry skin. It is essential to follow these tips diligently. One should not be careless with skin as skin is a very sensitive part of the body

Comments:   To reduce irritation, use mild and unscented skin care products. Wearing wool and rough materials on skin also tends to cause irritation and can aggravate conditions. Very dry skin can also be a sign of eczema. Oils are better than lotions for the body. Applying virgin coconut oil is very beneficial for itchy dry skin.

Comments:   People who have dry skin must exfoliate once a week or twice. Moisturizer is much more effective on properly exfoliated skin. Moisturizer when applied regularly helps to decrease dryness and itching. Moisture and humidity in the air is actually good for the skin they say.

Comments:   Even using carrot seed oil, lavender and geranium help the skin to renew itself naturally. Vitamin A and Vitamin E are also great for moisturizing and nourishing the skin. Never use hot water to wash your face. Hot water kills skin cells. Washing face with hot water is very bad for dry skin.
