Treating Dry Skin

If you have dry skin, I'm sure you've experienced a flaky complexion and the frustration a flaky complexion gives when you put on makeup. No matter how strict your skin regimen, how dedicated your routine, how often you wash your face, how many products you use, you always seem to have to deal with that pesky dry skin. Dealing with dry skin is an extremely frustrating business, and one that is hard to perfectly deal with. Here are a few ways you can employ to mitigate the effects of having dry skin.

Treating dry skin needs to be approached differently from sensitive or oily skin. With oily skin, your skin has an excess of oils, providing for blemishes and breakouts. With dry skin, however, you have to deal with not having enough natural oils and moisturizers. The thing with dry skin is that once you have dry skin, it's easily aggravated. Dry skin itches and hurts, and when you scratch it, then the problem only intensifies. There are a few different causes for dry skin: cold, dehydration, actual skin issues like eczema. Fortunately, these symptoms and problems aren't difficult to treat, and rest assured you won't have to put up with constant dry skin forever!

You need to change up your skin routine, investing in products that are moisturizing and soft. You definitely don't want any harsh soap, but rather, you want soap that will be gentle on your dry skin while moisturizing it at the same time. When you go to the drugstore, look for products that are geared specifically toward dry skin; all of your cleaners, scrubs, and moisturizers should all be working together toward this common goal.

Something else you want to do is to limit your showers to no more than fifteen minutes long. Water on its own does not hydrate your skin; when the water dries, it actually leaves your skin drier than before, and that's something you definitely do not want. You need to use moisturizers to restore oils and water to your skin. Also, if you, yourself, are dehydrated, then start drinking more water. If you're fully hydrating, then chances are, your skin won't be as dry as it otherwise could be.

Apply moisturizer whenever you feel you need it. If your face, hands, legs, whatever body part, starts feeling drying, then that means that your skin has absorbed what you had and is still thirsting for more. Keep a small lotion or moisturizer bottle in your backpack, purse, or desk, so you can reapply whenever necessary. The quickest way to beat dry skin is to make the treatment constant. If you constantly have lotion on your hands and face, then the dryness will have to soon beat it!

So, while dry skin is always unwanted, there are ways to beat it. If you take these simple steps to combat your dry skin, then you'll be able to find success and enjoy healthy, smooth, and moisturized skin!
