Dry Skin - how to cure and what to avoid on

Dry skin, a very common condition, causes the skin to feel tight and uncomfortable and is often linked to sensitivity. Without adequate moisture, the skin neither feels good nor looks its best. 

Dry skin can be a year-round problem. Hot and cold winds, air-conditioning and heating can all rob the skin of vital moisture.

How to care for dry skin

Drink an adequate amount of fluids throughout the day to keep the body well hydrated.

Bowls of water in the home or office help to humidify the air and counteract the drying conditions of central heating.

Include foods rich in essential fatty acids and Vitamin E – such as cold-water fish and flaxseed (ground or oil). 

These elements play a role in maintaining the integrity of the lipid barrier, helping to improve the elasticity of the skin and binding water to it.

What to avoid

Dry skin can be easily irritated and therefore care should be taken not to use moisturizers with colors, perfumes, alcohol, parabens and other known irritants to the skin.

Avoid stripping natural oils away from the skin by using harsh cleansers.

Try not to rub the skin harshly when cleansing. Rinse with lukewarm water and always pat gently to dry, applying moisturizer while the skin is still moist and warm to help to retain moisture.
