Daily Dry Skin Care Regimens

 
Millions of people suffer from dry skin everyday. It can be very uncomfortable and without the right routine, your skin may remain dry. The key is to know the right way to clean, moisturize and exfoliate your skin.
 
 
If you have dry skin then you know the overall discomfort that it can cause. You may experience flaking, itching and a feeling of tightness. Dry skin can also hurt your appearance. For a bright and radiant tone, you need your skin to be hydrated and moisturized. The good news is that there are many things that you can do to ensure that your skin gets the nutrients it needs to be healthy and hydrated.

Get Clean

Many people with dry skin will not cleanse as often as they should and this can result in more problems such as acne and blocked pores. Even if your skin is very dry, you should be cleansing both in the morning and before heading to bed at night. The key is a gentle cleanser. Think of your skin like a wooden deck. If you constantly power wash it and use harsh chemicals to clean it, it will eventually dry out and crack. Our skin works in a similar manner. We have natural oils that we need to preserve for healthy skin.
 
First, avoid any soap that contains deodorants or has antibacterial properties. You want choose a cleanser meant for the face and body. When you are washing your face, use warm to cool water. Hot water can cause your skin to become even drier. Then, thoroughly wet your face and use a moisturizing cleanser. Use clean hands to massage the cleanser into your skin using a circular motion. Once you have thoroughly cleaned your skin, wash away the soap using cool water.

More Moisture

For all over body moisture, you need one moisturizer for your face and then one for the rest of your body. That is it. There is no need for a box full of lotions and potions. When it comes to the moisturizer for your face, find one that is oil free. This will thoroughly moisturize your skin without causing blocked and clogged pores. You should also aim for one with at least an SPF of 15 so that your skin is also protected from the sun. The sun can further dry out your skin. A moisturizer should be applied right after a shower so that your skin is most ready to soak it in.
 
For your body, you want to find a rich and creamy lotion. Baby oil will also do the job. Just like a facial moisturizer, apply this right after stepping out of a bath or shower. Your pores will be open and ready to absorb this blast of moisture. You also need to protect the skin on the rest of your body so be sure to apply a sunscreen before heading outside or use a lotion that contains at least an SPF 15.

Exfoliate

Dry skin is often flaky and you want to get rid of these flakes. Exfoliating is a process that you should do about once a week. First, when you are looking for a facial scrub, look for something more natural so that there won’t be excess oil or harsh chemicals in it. Then, you will just exfoliate once a week by massaging the exfoliator into your skin in a circular motion and then rinsing it away.
 
You should also exfoliate your body once a week. This includes your total body and not just dry areas like the elbows and knees. This can be done in the shower and then just wash your body to remove the dead skin and scrub particles. After your shower, be sure to use plenty of lotion to rehydrate your body.
