Dry Skin Care

For years on end, skin care scientists have used chemicals as their basis for younger, more youthful looking skin. Unfortunately, they have all failed. You can ask any person today whether after using all of the expensive skin care treatments, creams and lotions, she has ever received the results she expected. The answer is almost always an unequivocal no.

Fighting dry skin is a constant challenge, particularly in the colder months. At its worst, it can leave you itching and miserable. So you attempt to educate yourself about the most effective ways to keep your skin moisturized and comfortable. Good, we’re here to help you. Let’s start off with a list of general skin care tips to fight acute and chronic dry skin, such as lists of all the things you should do. Some things are easier to adopt than others.

Here we go, without further ado:

  • Apply moisturizer soon after bathing, to seal in the remaining moisture.
  • Cut down on bath and shower time (some dermatologists suggest no more than 3 minutes!).
  • Never scratch dry, itchy spots; instead, apply more moisturizer.
  • Exfoliate ashy, flaky skin as required. Then again, don’t overdo the scrubbing.
  • Rather than rubbing, pat yourself dry gently with a towel,.
  • Pay special attention to your lower legs that tend to be dryer since they’re farther from your heart.
  • Take more cool showers or baths than you used to.
  • Use a humidifier, particularly in your bedroom.
  • Use a mild cleanser (squeaky clean is far too drying).

Here are some dry skin care suggestions for daily cleansing and moisturizing, specially designed to help dry skin.

Step # 1:

Cleanse your skin without drying it. Remember to read those labels on the containers!

Step 2:

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize – you’ll never get enough. Then seal it in!
