Feeling flaky and dry, even with all the creams and lotions you’ve tried using? It’s time to discover if you are causing your dry skin and take action to help get your skin back to the moisturized and smooth condition it deserves to be in.
One of the ways in which you may be contributing to your dry skin is by using the wrong type of soap or body wash. Most soaps will dry out your skin, so a moisturizing body wash is the way to go. Also, a full body exfoliating wash will help remove the dead, dry skin cells to improve skin condition.
You also may be drying out your skin if you fail to moisturize after every bath or shower. It is essential to replace the oils and moisture that has been removed through cleansing, and by not doing so routinely you could be drying out your skin unintentionally.
Additional causes for dry skin include a house with too low of a humidity level (buy a cool mist humidifier), not drinking enough water every day (doctors recommend 8 glasses per day) and not protecting your skin when going outdoors in high heat or cold weather (wear gloves!).
Your skin needs to always be pampered and protected. Dry skin has a dull appearance and lacks the glow that healthy and well hydrated skin holds. Making changes to the way you care for your skin, your body and your environment can all help when you suffer from dry skin.
