Without regular attention, dry skin can lead to cracking and bleeding. Taking hot baths/showers and using harsh cleansers exacerbate dry skin.
Keep skin looking youthful and smooth by reducing (and eliminating) chapped and itchy skin with these suggestions:
Washing your skin with lukewarm water with the proper cleanser helps to avoid stripping essential oils from your skin that it needs to stay soft and supple.
Moisturizing immediately after your shower or bath (while your skin is still damp) helps to seal that dampness into your skin.
Choosing the correct moisturizer will soothe your dry, itchy skin while helping it to retain more moisture. Check with a spa professional.
Protecting your skin from the elements will help keep your skin soft and smooth while preventing chapping and flaking.
Drinking more water and eating foods with high water content provides your skin with much-needed hydration from the inside out.
Exfoliating your face and body regularly helps to slough off dead skin cells so moisture can penetrate the epidermis more effectively.
Using an effective sunscreen with a high SPF this time of year is important due to the sun’s rays being just as harsh as it is during the summer months.
