Dry skin can be very uncomfortable, causing tight, itchy skin. As well as causing your skin to be dull, red, or even flaky. There are some dry skin care treatments that can help to heal, as well as prevent this condition. Dry skin can be caused by many different factors. One is your environment, whether from dry air (especially in the winter) or indoor heating and cooling systems. Your daily habits have an effect on your skin, too. Long, hot showers, harsh soaps, and certain types of clothing all can contribute to painful, tight skin. What can you do to treat this condition? There are some easy changes you can make to help keep your skin healthy and feeling good.
Take cooler, shorter showers. The prolonged exposure to hot water washes away the natural oils that keep your skin moist. If you can lessen the time spent in the shower and turn down the temperature, more of your natural oils will stay present on your skin.
When shopping, chose your clothing wisely. Pick materials that are comfortable and won’t irritate your skin. Pay close attention to the fabric and how it feels on your skin. Itchy fabrics can contribute to uncomfortable, dry skin.
Change your soap. Use a milder soap that is free of perfumes and fragrances. Antibacterial soaps can be harsh as well. Also, try liquid soaps, as they tend to be gentler, and less damaging to the skin.
Moisturize, Moisturize! This is very important. You must replenish the moisture that is being drawn out of your skin from your environment. Use a gentle, fragrance free moisturizer on your skin. Apply after your shower to help lock in the moisture. By moisturizing, you also help to protect your skin from the elements.
Changing some of your habits, and trying these dry skin care treatments can help to replenish and protect your skin. Taking care of your skin will keep it looking and feeling healthy every day.
