Managing Your Dry Skin

Dry skin is problematic, physically and socially. Dry skin can be irritable, uncomfortable, and have long-term detrimental effects on the condition and appearance of your face. Dry and flaking skin can also lead to a lack of confidence in social situations. 

Dry skin can take many forms. Most people experience slightly dry skin at some time, whether through sunburn or contact with harsh chemicals. A hormone imbalance can lead to dry skin, and allergic reactions may cause the skin to shed or suffer cellular damage. Other medical conditions, like dermatitis and eczema, also cause the skin to itch, flake and become sore. 

Sun-damaged skin may become dry and loose due to a lack of hydration and the loss of elasticity. When this happens, cellular turnover slows down, and cells become damaged and begin to flake. The epidermis is fragile and needs to be protected. Thankfully, there have been several advances in skincare incorporating ingredients that aid dry skin.

  How to Hydrate Dry Skin  

Skin hydration is essential to prevent dry skin. There are many ways to help hydrate your skin. For example, drinking eight glasses of water a day keeps the dermis and epidermis hydrated and energized. Moisturizing daily with an effective skincare product also helps prevent dry skin. Applying medicated moisturizers to eczema-affected skin can help prevent stress-induced irritation and soreness. Becoming educated about dry skin is the first step toward prevention. 

B. Kemis Antipruritic Cream helps aid many different dry skin-related problems, including eczema, allergic reactions, and dermatitis. This is not a prescription cream, nor does it highly medicate the skin. It will, however, effectively soothe dry skin. 

Ageless Derma Super Green Moisturizing Serum incorporates the highly respected extract of Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil into its product. This is one powerful ingredient, known for promoting skin hydration, pliability, and skin suppleness. Sea Buckthorn is high in anti-oxidants which is extremely important to apply to the skin daily. Anti-oxidants help fight free-radicals -the main cause of aging skin.  Ageless Derma’s Super Green Moisturizing Serum will restore vitality to your skin, as it soothes and nourishes, leaving your skin looking youthful and radiant.

 

Bioelements Absolute Moisture is a non-comedogenic moisturizer that permits self-adjusting hydration for dry and combination skin. It contains Sodium PCA, which is an effective skin softener, as well as other moisture-bonding ingredients to hold moisture in and keep skin-drying elements out. 

If moisturizing is already part of your daily routine, and if you suffer from dry skin, why not invest in a facial moisturizer or cream that replenishes dehydrated skin cells? Preventing and healing dry skin has been made simple. Using effective, scientifically-formulated skincare products will protect your face and keep it youthful. 

Check the Products You’re Using 

Very often soaps or other cleansers contribute to dry skin. These products contain ingredients that are too harsh; you need something milder that cleanses the skin without robbing it of essential oils. The best product to use on dry skin is a mild cleanser, because, even when unscented, soaps often have perfumes in them. Check product labels very carefully and ask your skin care professional for advice in finding the right products for you. 

 

Do not use abrasive brushes or sponges to cleanse the skin. Most people‘s skin cannot tolerate these implements as they strip away important natural oils. Try to avoid rough, itchy clothing (e.g. unlined wool) that can irritate the skin. 

Medications like diuretics or acne treatments can have a dehydrating effect on the skin. When your doctor prescribes a medication, be sure to ask if it will lead to dry skin.
