Battling dry skin is a constant challenge for many especially in dry season. The skin is not just dry but is also itchy which is often very irritating. The best thing is to keep skin moisturised and comfortable. Here are few things you should do:

  • Cut back on bath and shower time ( some dermatologist suggest 3-5 minutes )
  • Take cooler showers or baths and if you can’t then go for luke warm water.
  • Use mild  cleansers.
  • When it comes to soap opt for cremy moisturising cleanser that contain glycerine or petrolatum.
  • Exfoliate flaky skin as needed, but don’t overdo the scrubbing.
  • Pat yourself dry gently with towel, rather than rubbing.
  • Apply moisturisersimmediately after bathing to seal in remaining moisture.
  • Pay special attention to lower legs,which tend to be dryer because they are farther from your heart.
  • Don’t scratch dry, itchy spots,apply more moisturisers instead.
  • People who drink relatively little water could see a significant bebefit in skin hydration if they start drinking nine glass of water per day.
  • Moisturiser is much more effective on properly exfoliated skin. USe a scrub in the sower and exfoliate facial skin with a mild scrub made for face.

    I always had Dry skin till I found a good product that helped me apply the lotion. Here is the link for the product that I got.

    Hey, I also have dry skin but I’ve been using a hydrating skin care system that’s really working great for me. There are natural ingredients used in these products and work best for my sensitive skin. Applying direct oil to my skin would leave me with acne and rashes so I believe this works best for me. The system includes, a cleanser, a toner and a moisturizer.

    I use all-natural soaps now and it has made a huge difference. The best and most affordable, I’ve found is soapynature.com.

    Have you used a product called Xsura? They use a blend of microorganism called extremophiles along with shiitake mushroom extract that help to calm redness and soothe inflammation for a more youthful complexion. It is ideal if your skin is showing visible signs of loss of elasticity, fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, rough texture, sun damage, discoloration and crow’s feet.
    You simply have to apply after cleansing in the morning and evening.
    I tried it and it worked wonders!

    I strongly agree with this point.
    “People who drink relatively little water could see a significant benefit in skin hydration if they start drinking nine glass of water per day.”
    It is SOOOO simple that we do not follow.
    There are thousands of products that are claimed to be good for dry skin. But the best of the best is to drink ENOUGH H2O. simple! 🙂

    All of the ways that you mentioned are all effective in avoiding dry skin. And with your permission, I would also like to add that eating nutritious foods and having a good and proper diet is also one way that we may add in preventing dry skin.
