When your skin is unable to retain enough moisture it will turn your skin super dry. Using harsh skin products, frequent bathing, or some health conditions can cause your skin to dry out. Sometimes it’s the cold weather that is turning your skin dry.
Not just the people living in colder regions, everyone should know different ways to keep their skin hydrated. Here are some tips to fight dryness and keep your skin healthy and full of moisture. So Let’s Get Started.
What Can You Do About Dry Skin?
Here we’ve collected some easy tips and tricks to get rid of dryness.
- Limit your bath time
You need to control your bath time. Bathing for more than 5-10 minutes daily can remove the skin’s much-needed natural oil, which will consequently dry your skin excessively. Using too hot water is also a big no. You should try using Luke warm water to keep the natural oils intact. Check this article to learn more about the benefits and differences between the cold shower and the hot shower.
For further caution, you must try using only gentle products on your skin. Using harsh scrubbers or sponges is also going to damage your skin. Always pat dry your skin instead of rubbing the towel all over your body.
- Apply moisturizer/face oil immediately after cleansing
Moisturizing your skin after bathing or washing is very important to keep the hydration intact. After you’re done washing your skin, don’t towel off completely. That’s because applying moisturizer or face oil to a damp face can help lock in hydration. The same thing goes for the rest of your body—moisturizer or body oil to damp skin after showering.
- Pay attention to the label if you have sensitive skin
Using skin products formulated with fragrance, alcohol, or soap can be a bit harsh on sensitive skin. They turn your skin dry, due to which fragrance-free products are always recommended.
Some products are labeled as “unscented," which doesn’t mean they are safer for sensitive skin. To get rid of the scents, products labeled as unscented may formulate with multiple neutralizing agents. That can potentially dry out or irritate sensitive skin. Make sure to pay attention to how your skin responds so that you can find the right offering for you.
- Choose non-irritating clothes and laundry detergent
Sometimes using harsh laundry detergents can also be a reason behind your dry skin. These can excessively dry sensitive skin, so you should avoid using harsh detergents or fabric softeners. Always go for fragrance-free detergents. Sometimes wearing wooly fabrics can cause dryness. So always observe and avoid any drying agents you have been using.
- Take antioxidants & omegas for your body and skin
Dryness is the symptom of an unhealthy lifestyle. This indicates that you are using any elements that are damaging your skin cell. To help repair the skin cells you need to convert to healthy eating. Eating antioxidant and omega-3 rich foods help in the repair of body cells. Some of these foods are:
- Green vegetables
With eating you can also apply nutrient-rich products on your skin like face oils and serums. This will provide quick nourishment to your skin.
- Drink enough water
Drinking water is the most important and easiest source of hydration for your body. You must at least drink 8 glasses of water daily. You can monitor your body needs according to your weight and lifestyle.
These were the quick hydration methods for your body and skin. You will start feeling fresh and rejuvenated when you adapt these habits in your daily life.
