Do you have dry skin ?
Many of us have dry skin that drives us crazy !
What can you do for your dry skin ?
As the seasons change we sometimes need to change our skincare routine.
When the humidity drops our skin makes a 911 call to us because the dry
air is causing problems with our skin like flakey,dry,itchy,lines and wrinkles
skin that can even cause the skin to crack and bleed !
-Close the bathroom door when showering
-Limit bathing to 5 to 10 minutes
-Use warm water NOT hot
-Use a less harsh-gentle-fragrance free cleanser
-Blot skin dry
-Apply moisturizer immediately
-An oatmeal powder bath works great (you can grind your own oatmeal to a fine powder)
-Use skin care products that are not harsh
-Keep your hand cream and lip balm with you on the go
-Use things that help your skin maintain it's natural oils (not strip of oils)
-If your skin is dry and itchy grab some milk from the fridge !
You heard me...Milk has anti-inflammatory properties and lactic acid
so just apply it to your skin for 5 or 10 minutes and rinse !
-Soak in a milk and honey bath Yep..for real...use about 2 cups of milk
and about a 1/4 cup of honey and stir...hop in and soak !
-Add moisture to the air
-Use coconut oil on your skin at night and put on your pajamas to cover skin
-Gentle exfoliation (a konjac sponge works great)
-Dry skin may be caused by a medication you take
-Try not to scratch
-Elderly tend to have less skin oils
-Avoid harsh soaps and chemical cleansers
-Apply emollients (something with a softening or soothing effect)
- Skin that feels overly tight after bathing may indicate excess
removal of natural skin oils.
-A soap/cleanser that foams more is a harsher soap...so you want
a soap that barely foams/suds up
-To help prevent dry skin you can also use moisturizers with alpha
hydroxy acids from sugarcane,milk or fruits
-Barrier balms that melt into your skin with healthy ingredients work great !
We will have our little miracle balm in our store in the future that works on many-many things !
