04 Jun Dry skin? 5 easy ways to deal with it
Dry skin is not the best experience a woman can have regarding her skin, especially if it appears everywhere. Having a dry skin on both the face and the rest of the body is something difficult and annoying. You have certainly tried to get rid of – at least temporarily – without any effect.
When you have flakes and – especially – itch, you want a quick relief. Relaxing from dry skin is not just about what to apply to your skin to calm it down, it also depends on how you cleanse your skin, the air around you, the clothes you wear, and even what you eat.
Below, we have some ways to help you.
Yes to warm water, no to hot
A very hot shower makes you feel good and restful, but this hot water is not a good idea for your dry skin. The problem is that hot showers strip your body from its natural oil barrier and this barrier is needed because it helps to trap moisture and keep the skin smooth and moist.
So just set the temperature of the water to warm and do not stay for a long time under it. Skin care specialists recommend small, warm (not hot) showers that do not last for more than 5 to 10 minutes. Then wipe gently and hydrate your body with a cream.
Do cleansing right
Wash with a cleansing soap when showering. Soft soaps that do not contain perfume are an excellent choice. Products with deodorants or antibacterial additives may be tough on the skin. When exfoliating, do not rub your body too hard or for too long, as this may irritate your skin and we certainly do not want this. After cleansing, always apply a high quality moisturizer to ensure the skin receives the hydration it needs. The Caviar of Switzerland 24h Regenerating Cream is an award winning anti-aging moisturizer that will not only hydrate the skin, but will also fade out any wrinkles.
Yes to shaving (but with care)
Shaving can irritate dry skin. As you shave unwanted hair, you also remove the natural oils of your body. The best time to shave is after a shower, as the hair has softened and the pores of your skin have opened up. Always use shaving foam and shave in the direction of growth to protect your skin.
Avoid Extreme Sun
Sun exposure is one of the main causes behind dry skin, wrinkles and rough skin. This of course you can avoid using your sunscreen.
Yes to the necessary humidity and winter
Cold and dry air is a common cause of dry, irritated skin. Warming up your house also keeps you warm, but removes moisture from the air, which can make the dry skin even worse. To replace the lost moisture use a special device or always leave a window open (even a little) during the winter.
Your food can also affect and exacerbate dry skin, so make sure you consume foods rich in antioxidants that can help your skin’s health such as: blueberries, tomatoes, carrots, beans, peas and lentils.
