The skin dryness accompanying the dry season has always been a thing of worry for many people. We often find people who fit the ‘hamattarn’s first born’ description. In their defense, or even in or cases, we usually do everything right and even apply more than the sufficient amount of cream to aid the white dryness of our skins during this season. Here are things that worked for me and a few skin specialists.
Drink water (lots of it)
This sounds cliche but surprisingly is a very underrated practice. Now, although I don’t agree with the 8 glasses of water a day thing, I strongly believe you should drink water more often during the dry season. The air is thinner and carries lees moisture. Drinking more water would moisture you are not getting. help make up for the external moisture you are not getting.
If you’ve never opted for a moisturizer, now’s a perfect time to get yourself one. They work by trapping the moisture in your skin pores. The best time to apply your moisturizer is just before the water on your
skin dries off completely. Since the moisturizer is moisturizing your skin, water from your bath is an added moisture source for your skin.
If, however you are using a Vaseline as your moisturizer, leave a little clean water in the Vaseline container containing the Vaseline. Apply the Vaseline with the water to your skin. This tip is mostly helpful for children who might have not begun applying other forms of creams.
Sweat it out, open your pores. Exercise is an easy sure fire way to open up your sweat pores. The skin absorbs more skin care products after the bath after a workout.
Say no more often to blazing hot baths It gets tempting to stay too long in the shower especially if the water temperature feels so right. If you want a longer shower, it’ll do your skin better to bath with lukewarm water. Often will leave your sky dry and sometimes flaky as the hot water strips our skins off it’s natural oils.
If you can, find soaps with oil in them. There are a variety of soap products that have oils in them so you don’t completely feel dry and out once the bath moisture is gone from your skin.
