Dry skin, can quickly turn into sensitive skin if not handled properly. The best and most basic way to deal with this is to ace your cleansing regime. First remove your makeup gently and then use a facial foam to do a double cleanse. You might think this will dry your skin further but if done with the right products, this becomes the most important step of your skin care regime. Our pick? The Pond’s White Beauty Daily Spot-Less Lightening Facial Foam, which is enriched with camellia leaf extracts that exfoliate your skin and reduce dark spots without robbing your skin of moisture.
Sleep before midnight
Sleep plays a big role in defining how your skin looks so try to turn in early at least five days a week.When you sleep on time, the body sends proper nutrients to the dermis (the lower or inner layer of the two main layers of cells that form the skin) resulting in faster and better reproduction of skin tissues. Make sure to get at least six un-interrupted hours of sleep if you’re looking to get rid of dry skin problems.
Alter your diet
Your diet plays a crucial role in regulating your skin type. Poor diet without essential vitamins and nutrients can also result in dry skin. So, if you are prone to skin dryness make sure you incorporate hydrating foods in your diet like avocados, fish, sweet potatoes, eggs and almonds in your meals.
Avoid hot water showers
Long showers with very hot water can strip the skin of essential oils, resulting in dry skin. Dry skin remedies include taking lukewarm baths and using the right lotion or petroleum jelly to stay hydrated.
We all end up consuming cups of coffee every day little realising that they’re drying out our skin to a great extent. Wondering how it happens? Well, coffee is diuretic. This means that your body loses fluid in the form of urine. This process dehydrates your body leaving you with dry, itchy skin. Instead, replenish your skin with hydrating drinks and fresh fruits and you’ll notice the change in your skin in no time.
Hydrate your body
There’s no greater medicine for dry skin than drinking 8-10 glasses of water every day. This will ensure that the cells in your body are well-hydrated, which ultimately gives birth to soft, supple skin. If you just can’t get yourself to drink water, just set a goal per day or even invest in a fancy sipper that will motivate you to drink more. Trust us, we’ve tried this and it actually works!
