As the layers are slowly but surely being peeled off as we head into the glorious spring and summer months many of us can suffer from feelings of self consciousness at this time of the year. As the warmer weather pressures us into revealing more and more of our body for those of us with problematic skin this can come with anxiety and stress.
There are only a handful of us mere mortals that are perfectly content with their skin as the majority of us have some problem areas. One of the most common skin problem is dryness so today we are going to look at ways we can tackle and combat dry skin once and for all so we can boldly face the warmer months with confidence.
Scrub Away Dryness
Exfoliation is essential to work away the dry, dead skin cells on the surface of our skin. In order to keep dryness at bay you must exfoliate regularly to reveal your fresh skin beneath. The market is full to the rafters with exfoliation products for face and body so make sure you choose one that is right for your skin and has been created by dermatologists. Learn more about R & F and such companies that have scientific research backing their products to ensure your skin is getting the best treatment available.
Your Royal Highness- H20
Yes we’ve heard it all time and time again, but never is drinking water more important than in the warmer seasons. And never is it more necessary than for sufferers of dry skin. Drinking a minimum of 2 litres of water a day will keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Water really is a non-negotiable.
Look in Moisture
Many of us get into the routine of drying off before applying moisturizer and this is the first mistake in our beauty regime. To make sure you’re locking in maximum moisture, apply your moisturizer to your body whilst your skin is still damp.
Our skin does most of its hard work whilst we sleep so it’s only fair that we help it along a little. Try nature's most wonderful natural skin care products; coconut oil and and or olive oil, apply generously to face (avoiding delicate eye area) and problem areas of the body such as knees, elbows and any problematic dry patches and let it work its wonder as you catch up on your beauty sleep.
Don’t Neglect your Feet
Dry and cracked feet can not only be embarrassing but can also be downright painful. Treat yourself to either a professional pedicure or do a home-based treatment to ensure your feet are looking gorgeous and ready to face the world.
Humidifiers are a very effective way to keep your skin plump and nourished. Having a humidifier, particularly in the winter is a great way to replenish the top layer of skin. Zero effort, maximum results just whack it on and feel the hydrating effects get to work.
It can take time to find the exact skin regime that works for you in order to combat dry skin. Don’t be afraid to experiment and play a little until you find the right system that works for you.
