Femalefirst.co.uk shares tips to take care of dry skin.
1 - Avoid long, hot shower bath - True, that hot water bath relieves stress but it can also make your skin dry. Hot water reduces natural oils from body much faster than lukewarm or cold water.
2 - Use a gentle cleanser or shower gel with moisturiser - Cleanser or nice shower gels make skin smoother and removes dryness.
3 - Use good moisturiser - If face is moisturisd properly using a good moisturiser, it helps make skin soft and smooth. Moisturisers lock in moisture and help reduce dryness.
4 - Drink plenty of water - Experts recommended to drink two litres of water every day. Drinking plenty of water will ensure your body can produce the minerals it needs to function properly.
5 - Eat healthy - Food items or ingredients like fish (salmon and sardines), flax and walnuts help maintain body's natural oils. Eat food items, which contain Omega-3 acids that produce natural oil and minerals to keep your body healthy.
6 - Exfoliate - Dry skin can produce dead skin cells so it is important to exfoliate weekly to get rid of these cells so your body can produce new ones.
