    Thumbs up Skin Care for Dry Skin

    Dry skin most often occurs on the shins, hands and sides of the abdomen. It is more common in winter season as the humidity of the air is very low. It can also be due to some hereditary conditions. Amongst the older people it is most common as their skin condition changes drastically. A proper care or treatment of these types of skin is very much important. Dry skin can lead to dermatitis, a more severe inflammation of the skin.

    The dry skin care can be prevented by following the steps mentioned below.

    1. Always take a bath with cold water, avoid warm water for having bath.
    2. Avoid having longer baths; limit your bath duration for 4 to 5 minutes.
    3. Make a habit to apply Moisture right after having taken the bath.
    4. Use Moisturizing body soap and hand soap for use.
    5. Using heavier creams or ointments during the winter months and lighter lotions in the summer.

    This dry skin is mostly seen in people living in colder conditions where the humidity of air is too low. A proper humidity in air is necessary for the skin to be soft and healthy. So first step for all who have a dry skin or those who live in colder regions is to have a proper moisturizing cream to be applied on your skin.The next you have to do is to make an habit of taking bath shorter and with normal cold waters, avoid using warm water for bathing.

    Sometime this condition of dry skin looks to be quite small for you but many a ties it may be quite painful for you. So for those who need a good shiny and healthy skin one must take care of them from less humid conditions. And for those who have this problem hereditary is to go for all time care of it. Because a good and healthy skin makes your body breathe healthy.

    Great Tips on skincare regime for a dry skin. I would like to add more on this topic which i read.

    There could be various causes for dry skin. It is suggested to limit water contact and essentially refrain from using warm water - use lukewarm water when unavoidable. Avoid using harsh soaps as they take away skin moisture.Using bath oils ,skin gels, soap - free products will make sure that you don't loose the moisture you've got.
    Add primrose oil or flax seed oil to your diet to get the best results for your skin.

    It is worth noting that dry" skin can be symptomatic of other conditions. For example, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis. If you suspect your dry skin is out of the norm it's important to check with your doctor.

    Otherwise the best tip for dry skin on the body which I ever received is to wash with Silcock's Base instead of shower gel.

    Default Skin care for Dry Skin

    Dry skin has a low level of sebum and can be prone to sensitivity. The skin has a parched look caused by its inability to retain moisture. It usually feels "tight" and uncomfortable after washing unless some type of moisturizer or skin cream is applied. Chapping and cracking are signs of extremely dry, dehydrated skin.
    Dryness is exacerbated by wind, extremes of temperature and air-conditioning, all of which cause the skin to flake, chap and feel tight. This type of skin is tightly drawn over bones. It looks dull, especially on the cheeks and around the eyes. There may be tiny expression lines on these spots and at the comers of the mouth.

    Drink more water, eat more fruits and vegetables. Get a Humidifier for your place. Take more baths and use oil in the water.

    Oil in water? Seriously? It's the first time I heard of it. For dry skin, I only use moisturizing lotions.

    Avoid using any commercial soap. And always touch your face gently.
    you should be careful to not consume the types of liquids that lead to dehydration, with alcohol and caffeine being the chief offenders. Go for unscented, soap-free, or mild soap cleansers instead of harsh cleansers.
