Dry Skin Treatments

Dry climates, products used on the skin, and hereditary factors, all contribute to dry skin conditions. People with dry skin complain about rough, dry, cracked skin that itches and flakes. Include early signs of aging, and there is a reason to worry. We should also take a hard look at our environment. Factors in the places where we live, work, and play cause dryness and are difficult to change. In this circumstance, the best suggestion is to protect sensitive dry skin by understanding the causes and using the natural skin treatments provided in this article.

Dry Skin Causes

Of course, heredity, the climate, and environment all contribute to the dry skin conditions experienced by many people. Cold winter air removes moisture from the skin on the face and body. Heat or air-conditioned rooms steal moisture out of the skin. Taking too many hot showers and baths is also another strong contributing factor to dry skin. Using harsh detergent to wash dishes, harsh cleaning chemicals that contact hands, all rob the skin of precious moisture and destroy the outer layer of skin. And it is frequently difficult to avoid these conditions.

Dry Skin Advice

Dermatologists recommend the following:

Moisturize frequently during the day
Keep a good moisturizer on the desk
Carry a compact size moisturizing lotion during the day
Always apply a moisturizer after a bath or shower
Remember to moisturize the skin just before bedtime
Avoid using harsh soaps
Avoid taking hot baths or showers and use cool water
Raise humidity in the home
Use cream-based makeup
Slather body oils on excessive dry skin
Drink plenty of water
Avoid drinking too much alcohol
