DRY SKIN Solution

DRY SKIN Solution & Example
Your face feels tight and tiny flakes of skin are visible at the corners of your nose. Your cheek feels like sandpaper and the rest of your body feels itchy.

  • Dry skin is the result of lack of moisture.
  • Avoid bathing more than once a day, alternate with a sponge bath.
  • Use a very mild soap, avoid deodorant soap.
  • Add bath oil to your bath water and remove make-up with a creamy emollient rather than with soap.
  • Pat dry instead of rubbing.
  • Apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp, as this will lock in the surface moisture.
  • Keep your hands out of hot water. Use gloves when doing any kind of work in water.
  • Use a humidifier and keep the heat down low in the winter time, just enough to keep the chill out of the room. Wear warmer clothing rather than turning up the heat, which takes the moisture out of the air.
