Dry skin is characterized by rough, red, and itchy patches in your body. It is uncomfortable and unattractive as it makes your skin look unhealthy and dull. One of the main problems of dry skin is that it can result in cracks and fissures in the skin.
There are many causes of dry skin. It can be hereditary, aging, or medical conditions such as asthma or thyroid disease. The good news is that skincare habits can improve dry skin.
It's essential to understand that most dry skin is due to external causes, so thankfully, it responds well to external skincare treatments. Making a few adjustments to your beauty routine can help. Here are four helpful tips for dry skin.
4 Helpful Tips For Dry Skin
1. Cleanse Your Skin Properly
The most critical part of caring for dry skin is to learn how to wash correctly. It's essential not to treat dry skin as you treat normal skin. Keep in mind that when you don't treat dry skin properly, it can lead to inflammation, clogged pores, acne, redness, and more.
The best way to avoid these skin issues is to clean your face before applying any other treatment.
Here are some tips on how to wash dry skin:
- Don't shower for long. Washing your skin for too long can remove healthy oils making your skin drier. Keep the showers up to 10 minutes only.
- Shower with warm or cold water to prevent the loss of useful properties.
- Use a cleanser with no scents or fragrance. Try your best to select a cleaner with a built-in moisturiser, such as HEIMISH All Clean Green Foam, to get excellent results.
The HEIMISH All Clean Green Foam is a healthy, natural cleanser designed with a pH value of 5.5 to match human skin. It's perfect for those with sensitive and dry skin.
2. Protect Your Hands
Hands are one of the body parts that become dry mostly for direct contact with environmental irritants. These include dish soap and laundry detergent.
It's a wise idea to wear gloves when your hands are in the water. And don't forget to apply a hands cream every time you wash your hands and at night.
An excellent option is TONY MOLY Peach Hand Cream, which promotes skin elasticity and hydrated skin while providing powerful anti-wrinkle effects.
It would be better to combine your hand cream with a hand sanitiser such as TONY MOLY Aloe Chok Chok Hand Gel, which has antibacterial properties, while effectively moisturising your skin. It's the perfect option for those with dry or dehydrated skin.
Dead skin cells are one of the main reasons why your skin looks dull. Exfoliation can remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. If you have dry skin, it's crucial to add to your skincare routine an exfoliating product. But be careful not to exfoliate more than once a week because it could make your skin drier.
Try SECRET KEY Lemon Sparkling Peeling Gel to get brighter, healthy-looking skin. This peeling gel softly scrubs away dead skin cells, sebum, and other impurities to refresh and hydrate your skin.
The Lemon Sparkling Peeling Gel eliminates pore waste, cools your skin, and enhances skin elasticity.
If you suffer from dry skin moisturising, is by far the most critical part of having healthy skin. When you moisturise, you keep your skin humid.
The best way to moisturise your skin is while it's moist after a shower. Pat with a towel and apply a moisturiser within three to five minutes after getting out.
We recommend using a cream to moisturise your skin that contains ingredients such as glycerine, lanolin, ceramides, Dimethicone, and hyaluronic acid.
For the face, we recommend COSRX Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Cream, formulated with hyaluronic acid and highly concentrated with hippophae rhamnoides water to nourish dry and dehydrated skin. This intensive cream can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as it strengthens your skin's elasticity by infusing it with moisture.
