Dry Skin Treatment

Because dry skin is the result of moisture leaving it, the best way to treat it is to stop the moisture from escaping. This is done by ensuring that there are adequate oils sealing the moisture within. Usually our body’s natural oils do this job, but all too often they get washed away. Nevertheless, substitutes in the form of creams and lotions can effectively take their place to lock moisture in. There are also many things you can do to keep the protection that your body’s natural oils provide working well:

  • Use glycerin based soap
  • Avoid cleaning your skin with alcohol based cleansers
  • Keep hydrated
  • Avoid very hot water when showering or bathing
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure
  • Improve circulation to your skin through exercise
  • Some tips for Liquid Soaps, Lotions and Creams

    Dry skin should not be washed more than 2 times per day. Select a soap that you feel is gentle, yet is able to cleanse your skin well. Additionally, use a good moisturizer following baths or showers so that it can lock in moisture within your skin before it has a chance to escape. If you must wash your hands several times a day, always moisturize them right after to prevent dryness. Elbows, knees, and feet deserve special attention and extra application. There is a variety of home remedies for dry skin. Experiment and choose one that works best for you.
