Is your dry skin making your life miserable?
No, you can’t solve dry skin simply by applying lots and lots of moisturizer on your face. It’s not as simple as that. If you want to care for and improve your dry skin, you need to create a skincare routine that will address your specific needs.
Dry skin is usually tight and sometimes flakey. It is also characterized by small pores. More often than not people with dry skin develop lines and wrinkles earlier than people with normal skin because of dehydration. Dry skin is caused by many different factors - the environment or weather is a common culprit. If left untreated, dry skin can lead to serious skin problems such as inflammation of the skin, swelling and possible infections.
Want to prevent dry skin? Here are some things you can do to help address the problem:
Moisturizer is not the magic solution that will automatically solve your dry skin problems. Yes, it is important, but you need to apply it in the right way in order to see the benefits. The best time to apply moisturizer is right after your bath, while your skin is still moist. This will help lock in moisture in your skin.
Love hot baths? Unfortunately, hot water is known to dry out skin even more. So if you already have a problem with dry skin, you are only making the problem worse. It is best to opt for warm baths instead.
What’s the material of your clothes? You may not realize it but you might be making the problem bigger by making the wrongs choice of clothes. Cotton is the best and most harmless. Other material like wool or polyester can lead to problems if you have dry skin. Observe how your skin reacts when you wear certain material to find out which ones are the best options for you.
Dry air is another common culprit of having dry skin. It can suck the moisture right out of your skin and leave it feeling itchy and flakey. Usually the heater inside the home can add additional problems as well. Make sure to be more vigilant during this season to avoid serious skin problems.
Even the small things you do can make a huge difference in how your skin looks.
For people with dry skin, it’s not a good idea to take extremely long baths in hot tubs, but adding Epsom salt to your regular bath can make a huge difference. Epsom salt is made from Magnesium and CHloride. It is known to help with inflammation, soothe aching muscles, and improve skin!
