Many people have skin which is extremely dry. However, they make a common mistake of thinking that this is their skin’s natural disposition. They don’t take any measures to control the dryness of their skin and therefore keep suffering from dryness and itchiness. It is very important to know the kind of skin type that you have, as this will help you in treating it accordingly. Take the help of health magazines, internet forums, friends and family to ascertain the skin type which you have. There are many ways in which you can tackle the naturally dry skin. This does not involve any chemical products and their side effects, and some potential solutions are discussed below.
Avoid taking long baths: If you suffer from dry skin, avoid taking very long and hot baths. Take a quick 15 minute bath and allow your skin to dry. Do not rub your skin as it can cause rashes on it. Also use a moisturizer when your skin is a little moist after a bath as it will help in locking the moisture better in the pores.
Use very mild cleansers: Use gentle cleansers and soap for washing. Avoid any product which have fragrances, alcohol and parabens in it. This may cause your skin to dry up all the more. The harsh chemicals present in very strong products can damage the health of the skin in the long term if used too often. So you should use soaps made with natural ingredients.
Use natural oils: Oils such as olive oil, Jojoba oil or coconut oil should be massaged onto your skin. Dry skin can absorb these oils as they have very small molecules. These oils also help in making your skin softer and suppler. Other natural products such as Cynergy TK are also helpful. Cynergy TK is also responsible for the production of keratin in your skin as well as brightening the overall tone of your skin.
Therefore, you can use any of these above given natural products to treat your dry skin. Do not be careless and do not ignore your skin. It can cause you a lot of needless discomfort in the long run.
Milk: Milk has anti-inflammatory properties which can help dry and scaly skin. The lactic acid present in milk exfoliates the dead skin and act as moisturizer by retaining moisture.
