Skin Dilemma: Dry Skin II

In this article, I’m going to share with you some simple bits of advice that will help you take care of your dry skin: 

Over-washing your Face

Washing your face is important for removing dirt, but over-washing it removes natural oils from the face, which would be harmful to dry skin. Washing your face daily with a gentle cleanser that doesn’t wipe all skin oils is one step closer to flawless skin. Use a cleanser that contains lactic acid as it helps exfoliate the skin while hydrating it.

Drinking-Water

Drinking water will help to produce sebum which will keep your skin hydrated. 

Over-Exfoliating

Although constant exfoliating dries the skin, it helps to naturally remove dead skin cells that surface each month. Exfoliating once a week — if needed — would let your skin breathe. 

Moisturizers

Avoid using fragranced moistures and products that contain glycolic acid. Make sure to use a moisturizer that contains humectants, sorbitol, ceramides, glycerin, emollients, or humectants.

Note: Applying moisturizer to damp skin is more effective in the long term

Applying suitable moisturizer daily seals the skin, which prevents water from escaping.

Avoid Diuretics

Avoid excessive use of diuretics such as alcohol and caffeine. Also, be careful with salt intake because it could lead to skin dehydration. 

Sunscreen

Wearing sunscreen on sunny days is necessary to limit dehydration. 

 

Ingredients to avoid 

Before getting any product, you should carefully read the ingredients. Avoid products that contain: those originating from mineral oil (paraffin and petroleum), diethanolamine (DEA), triethanolamine (TEA), monoethanolamine (MEA), parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), alcohol, plastics, and artificial colors. 

Skin-friendly Ingredients

Hyaluronic acid, colloidal oatmeal, and ceramides are very skin-friendly. You can also use natural ingredients that help relieve dry skin such as coconut, shea butter, and aloe vera gel.
