1. Keep the air in your room moist
The first rule of healthy skin is moist air in your apartment. The great thing that will help you to moisturize the air in your room is a vaporizer. It is easy to use, you need just plug it in the room and it will do the entire job.
Don’t forget to clean and fill the reservoir when necessary to prevent mold from appearing. Thus you will keep the air in the room moist and it will be very good for your skin and for the health of your body in general.
2. Products to care for your skin
If you use soap with the smell of fruits or flowers, beware, you may affect your dry skin without knowing it. It means that chemicals have been added to make these products smell good. Such chemicals can dry your skin badly.
So my advice is to choose natural products to care for your skin. They will moisturize your dry skin since they contain no chemicals to dry it.
3. Use oils
There is the perfect thing that can moisturize your skin very well. I’m speaking about oil. You may know that different natural oils are used in cosmetic products you are using to care for your skin. But do you know that you can use any natural oil as it is?
Choose any oil you like, there is a wide variety of them. The most common is olive oil, but you may find that coconut or rose petals oil is more to your liking. Just rub the oil into dry parts of your skin and you will see the results in no time.
4. Use lotion on damp skin
Treating your dry skin with lotion whenever needed is a very good idea. But it will be way much better if you apply your favorite lotion to the damp skin. Put it on after the shower and when your skin is a bit dump and it will absorb the lotion deeper.
This will make it easier for your lotion to cope with the dryness of your skin. And you won’t have to worry about the discomfort that dryness brings.
5. Drink more
There is nothing that can hydrate your body better than water. “Drink more water” – that is what you hear from everyone. Everybody, from famous dieting experts to your couch in your local gym advises you to drink more water as it is very good for your body.
But you need to know that it is equally good for your skin too. Do you want to see your skin shining and hydrated? So, do drink more water!
6. Add fruits and vegetables to your diet
You heard a lot about the benefits your body has from fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins and minerals, contain antioxidants, and are able to hydrate your skin. So, by adding fruits and vegetables to your eating plan you can keep your skin hydrated. Plus, you will get plenty of essential vitamins.
7. Reduce the temperature in your shower
You may like hot water, but your dry skin won’t tell you ‘thank you.’ When hot water runs over your skin, it sucks the moisture out of it, leaving you with dry, bright red skin. Lukewarm water is perfect for dry skin. I don’t also recommend using cold water since it’s not good for your dry skin as well.
There are plenty of ways to care for your dry skin, but these are the most effective. How do you treat your dry skin?
