Are you suffering from dry skin? Winter has arrived and with it comes a higher chance of dry, cracked, and irritated skin. Wish to make it hydrated, appear smoother, and give yourself that youthful look? Dry skin affects over 50% of the older adults in the world, particularly those who live in dry, cold, or low humidity climates. Here are 8 skincare tips to help you with your dry skin.
- Avoid over washing with hard soaps
The overuse of hard soaps dries up your skin, and is one of the easiest ways to help treat dry skin caused by external issues. While bathing and showering adds water to the skin, it also increases evaporation of the water adding to dry skin. If your skin feels overly tight after washing yourself, then that is a good indication that the soap you have used removed excessive amounts of water and natural skin oils.
- Limit Bath Time
More time in the bath or shower, allows for more water to evaporate from your skin and washes off natural, healthy oils created by your skin. Warm water is less harsh on your skin than hot or cold water, so choose a lukewarm shower to best help your skin.
- Moisturise in low humidity and cold temperatures
Dry skin may persist especially in low humidity and cold temperature climates, therefore adequate and proper moisturising is important. Opt for a professional salon recommended, natural ingredient moisturiser to ensure your skin gets the best nourishment possible.
- Moisturise after your Shower
For best results with your moisturiser, apply it after your shower to allow your skin to soak up additional moisture and make it thrive. It is also great to incorporate it into your shower routine, so you never forget to hydrate and nourish your skin.
- Choose fabrics which are good to your skin
Natural fibres such as cotton and silk allow your skin to breathe and remain at the proper hydration balance. Synthetic fibres can minimise airflow causing break outs, or potentially dehydrating your skin further.
- Use a humidifier in Winter
If the area of the world where you live in has low humidity, try getting a humidifier to make your sleep more comfortable. It is difficult to stay hydrated during the night, and humidified air will be kinder to your skin and allow you to sleep better.
- Stay Hydrated
One of the best ways to ensure your skin does not get too dry, is to drink the daily recommended 9 glasses of water. By hydrating your body, this will lead to improve your overall health and you will see visible results on your skin.
- Moisturise daily
At last, keep your skin hydrated and moisturised. Well-hydrated skin remains supple and allows it to battle off inflammations of break outs. Consider some of these luxurious moisturisers to boost your skin’s immunity!
If your dry skin persists, it can potentially lead to dermatitis which causes red and itchy skin. There are over the counter creams and lotions you can use in that instance, but until then, try these 8 skincare tips to help prevent flaky, dry skin.
