Dry Skin Mistakes You Should Stop Doing Now

Dry skin is an uncomfortable condition marked by scaling, itching and cracking. Appearance is due to variety of reasons and causes. Do not be misled, even the oiliest skin can get dry sometimes. Let it be known that the skin is our front line defense against wind, humid and cold weather, and therefore protection and TLC (tender loving care) approach must be applied.

Several mistakes frequently done over the years need to be stopped, like, using of just any available soap in the soap dish. Not all soaps are the same and using harsh soap means goodbye to skin’s natural moisture. Use mild, fragrance-free and specially formulated soap for dry skin to preserve its silkiness. Another is, constant usage of hot shower, this soothes and relaxes the body, however, not favorable to the skin for the intense heat leaves skin parched. Set temperature to lukewarm and keep shower short are good remedies for this.

Even the simple drying off with towel straight from shower strips its moisture, therefore, it is recommended to towel-dry off but still leaves the skin a bit moist or use soft towel in patting skin. Scrubbing is not even a solution to soften dry skin, friction scrapes the skin and enhances its dryness. Better yet, use hands or soft washcloth for keeping skin clean without roughing up.

Occasional dry skin is manageable through simple lifestyle changes. Still, the best way in keeping our skin clear and flawless is to drink plenty of water and healthy food intake.

I have dry skin specially on winter times and it drives me crazy. Palmer's shea butter lotions is the best for it though.

I have dry-combi skin for my face but on my legs, it is super dry that it tends to get scaly during humid weather. I always use lotion with glycerin for added moisture protection and it really makes my skin soft and less scaly. As for my facial regimen, I use hypo-allergenic facial wash that is perfect for dry-combi skin and finish it off with argan oil.

I have dry skin especially during winter and the most I can do is use moisturizer as frequent as possible. Of course water keeps the skin hydrated and for me as an added bonus, I take Vitamin E supplement for the heart and skin.
