Having dry skin is the worst. The flaking and itching are annoying and is embarrassing. It’s so annoying that we go out of our way to prevent it or remedy it. It can also negatively affect your confidence and in general how you see yourself. We do have access to different products that can remedy this but those alone can only do so much. We need to follow the proper skincare routine for those products to be as effective as possible. It also takes discipline and dedication. Skipping a skincare routine is a big no-no. Bypassing it only once can lead to it being a habit. You might as well not do it all.
Even with all the products and skincare regimen, the fact that our skins are different from one another means that a product may work for another but not for you. With this said, let’s check out the different dry skin remedies that you can try. Who knows, one of these might be the one for you.
Drinking lots of water is the cheapest and easiest way to prevent or remedy dry skin. Our skin not only needs to be hydrated from the outside but also from the inside. Drinking water can keep our skin hydrated while being exposed to the elements throughout the day.
Another remedy that involves water. This time it’s about soaking yourself in lukewarm water for 15 minutes every day. Doing this will keep your skin moisturized and soft. Another win for water.
Eat it or apply it. Either way, coconut oil will benefit your skin. Apply it to that dry patch of skin before going to bed. It can also be used as a moisturizer to maintain your already smooth and healthy skin. Coconut oil is a popular choice since not only does it prevent or remedy dry skin, it also makes the skin more elastic. It is also rich in antioxidants and is rich in vitamin E which helps protect our skin from the sun.
Just like direct exposure from the sun can cause the skin to dry, so does dry air. If you feel that the air in your home is lacking moisture, consider getting a humidifier. Remember to still go through your skincare routines. Having more moisture in the air is not an excuse to skip on actually doing something to moisturize your skin.
