Try these dry skin care tips for instant relief

Many women suffer from dry skin, whether it be due to their genetics or weather conditions, and in order to rehydrate your skin, you want to learn how to keep moisture in. One dry skin care rule is to always moisturizer right after you shower or wash your hands. Why? When your skin is wet, it absorbs products such as lotions and creams more readily, so in order to soak up the full moisturizing properties of your skin care products, you will want to apply them while your skin is still damp. You should also exfoliate on a weekly basis in order to rejuvenate skin and get rid of excess skin cells, and wear moisturizer on your face daily. Read 18 Best Face Moisturizers for a list of great moisturizers that should be a part of any dry skin care routine.

If you live in a low humidity climate or you are around fireplaces and heaters frequently, you should invest in a humidifier, which will keep the air around you moist. Human skin needs more than thirty percent humidity in order to stay properly moisturized. Other important notes are to avoid drying soaps and products that contain high alcohol levels, which can be drying to skin, and look into applying essential oils for added moisturizing properties. Check out 7 Best Oils For A Perfect Complexion for a list of oils that provide dry skin care relief. You should also look into consuming fish oil pills, which help to soothe dry skin and also help with hair and nail growth and quality.

I have such dry skin and I have tried numerous ways to keep it looking healthy and moisturized, especially in the mid-west winters. I'll have to pay more attention to the soaps I'm using and look into purchasing a humidifier. Thanks!
