How to Care for Dry Skin

By Bette Daoust

If you have dry skin you can't disregard it. There is no way to hide the fact that with dry skin you will look older and a bit awful. Weather, over exfoliation, hormone changes and various treatments for skin diseases are all factors that can cause dry skin. Drying skin is a natural occurrence in the body. Although it is not hard to treat dry skin once you have it.

Applying moisturizers is the best cure for dry skin. Today the market is full of several moisturizer choices. You will need to do some research and find the best moisturizer for your needs. There are two categories for moisturizers.

1. The first category of moisturizers are those that contain natural skin moisture. Grocery stores and beauty shops are the easiest places to find these types of moisturizers.

2. A second category for moisturizers are the ones that take moisture from the environment and then put it into your skin. During cold weather these are the types of moisturizers you want. This category of moisturizers is typically referred to as humectants. The components of humectants include propylene glycol, urea, glycerin and hyaluronic acid.

You should use any moisturizer that is greasy or sticky. When a moisturizer doesn't go with your sweat and sticks with your clothes instead it is more comfortable.

Moisturizer isn't the only thing that counts. If you know how to correctly use a moisturizer you will get the best results. You should always put on a moisturizer when you skin is moist so you should do it after you shower or cleanse. You should consider water temperature when you cleanse your skin. Warm water is important to use when cleansing your skin. Your skin will become drier when you use water that is too hot or cold.

You shouldn't use bath soaps to cleanse your skin. To prevent your skin from drying out you should use products that have the right PH level for your skin type. To eradicate your dead skin cells you should exfoliate your skin, but over exfoliating your skin will cause further damage. When you go outside whether it is sunny or not it is advisable to apply lotion that has SPF coverage. You skin will dry out if it is overexposed to the sun. Although to get your proper supply of Vitamin D you do need some exposure to sunlight. Your proper supply of Vitamin D can be gained through a very short exposure to sunlight so you shouldn't expose yourself to sunlight too much.

You can decide whether you want your skin care products to contain natural ingredients or synthetic chemicals. Additional lipids are brought into your skin when you use natural ingredient products for your dry skin. The additional lipids will help your skin retain moisture.

Your skin care routine for dry skin isn't very complicated. Treatment of dry skin doesn't only rely on products, but also on the proper care of your skin. When you have dry skin you should rub too harshly especially after you bath. Rather you should dry you skin with gentle strokes. To prevent and cure you dry skin you should follow the above advice.
