How To Get Rid Of Dry Skin?

Half of the world population suffers from dry skin, but only quarter of them actually aware of it. In medical term, it is called Xerosis. If you feel tight, rough, itchy, scaling, or even cracking of your skin, you probably have a dry skin. To get rid of dry skin, you have to understand the causes and solutions of dry skin.

Exposure to weather or dry air with low humidity can be the most common cause of dry skin. It draws the moisture out of your stratum corneum and impacts badly on your skin. The same happens if you expose constantly to air conditioning.

Go with clothes that you feel comfortable when you first put them on! Additionally, ensure your clothing is not too tight, due to the fact that chafing could irritate dry skin.

Shorten your bathing time. Prolonged exposure to water during baths or showers can wash away skin's natural oils and worsen skin dryness.

Hence, shorten your bath or shower time and reduce your frequency.

For dry skin, your shower is not mandatory to be cold, but it should be in warm instead of hot.

Exfoliating is a must for people with dry skin. People tend to believe that exfoliating does more harm than good for dry skin. However, it is necessary to clean up a dead skin barrier that blocks moisture from entering into the skin and replace with fresh moist skin cells. Look for a small and gentle exfoliating scrub, such as Skin Smoothing Scrub with Marine Beads to scrub off dead skin cells up three times a week. After exfoliating, instead of rubbing your face with a towel that could worsen your dry patches, pat your skin dry with a baby washcloth. Make sure to moisturize your skin directly afterward to close the opened pores.

Sun exposure is one of the roots that leads to dry skin. To prevent dryness, you may wear a long-sleeved shirt with a wide-brimmed hat to cover your skin from sun damage. You should also mask your face with the UV Defense SPF50 that protects skin from harmful sun rays.
