Cure Your Dry Skin Once And For All
Dry skin is a very common skin condition characterized by a lack of the appropriate amount of water in the top layers of the skin. When our skin is dry, it cracks and gives a real bad, aged appearance. As we age, our skin tends to have diminished amounts of natural skin oils and lubricants.
Areas such as the arms, hands, and particularly lower legs tend to be more affected by dry skin. The main causes of dry skin include: dry climate, hormonal changes, and treatment of other skin disorders. Moreover, dryness could be the inherent nature of one’s skin. Whatever the cause, dry skin care is very important (but not very difficult) to treat.
Treatment of dry skin starts with the usage of moisturizers. This is the most effective remedy for dry skin. Generally, moisturizers are classified under 2 categories based on the way they provide dry skin care. The first category includes moisturizers preserve the moisture within the skin e.g. Vaseline. These moisturizers typically leave a greasy or oily residue but are relatively inexpensive and are readily available. The second category includes moisturizers supply moisture to the skin; they are commonly referred to as humectants or emollients. Dab to Nourish, Dab to Hydrate, and Dab for Youthfulness are excellent examples of this type of moisturizer. Humectants and emollients typically include non-greasy ingredients such as propylene glycol, urea, glycerine, and hyaluronic acid (HA).
Treatment of dry skin is not about just using moisturizers, but also using them properly. The best dry skin regime is to cleanse the skin with warm water before applying moisturizer. The application of moisturizer while the skin is still damp (after cleansing) is most effective.
Exfoliating two to four times per month will facilitate the absorption of the chosen moisturizer; however, be careful with this skin care step. Exfoliating with harsh, abrasive chemicals could damage the integrity of the skin. Instead, choose an exfoliant, such as Dab to Unveil towelettes, which contains salicylic and lactic acids. Dab to Unveil will also help to minimize pores, removes old skin, dislodge blackheads, moisturize, and leave skin soft.
Simple prevention and treatment measures are very effective in the treatment of dry skin. Basic dry skin prevention steps include choosing a good temperature of water, avoidance of harsh soaps and chemical cleansers, and selecting the best products. Untreated, dry skin may result in complications, including, premature aging, secondary bacterial infections, and skin discoloration. Fortunately, dry skin is usually mild and can be easily remedied.
