When you dry off with a towel after a shower, you strip moisture away, so it is recommended to leave your skin a little bit moist and apply a rich cream containing good ingredients for dry skin such as lactic acid, soothing ceramide, urea or petrolatum.
Such products will create an effective skin barrier and seal moisture into your skin. Moisturizing your face is different from your body; use a noncomedogenic face lotion that does not clog pores and cause breakouts. A moisturizer incorporating a broad spectrum sunscreen is a great choice, as it addresses both sun protection and dryness.
Due to the changing hormone levels over the years, the skin becomes parched and thin. Of course, we cannot turn back the clock, but we can minimize aging skin changes. A generous rub of a rich face and body cream is a great start for each morning, and to relieve dryness while minimizing wrinkles, look for ingredients like retinol and alpha- hydroxy acids.
Next to your bed keep a bottle of lotion, so it is easy to use first and last thing each day.You can have a sensitive skin that gets itchy easily from the detergent or certain kinds of fabrics and fabric softener.
When you buy any type of beauty product or cleaner, the key word is “free”; choose products that are labeled dye- and fragrance- free that are specially addressed for sensitive skin. Wear clothes made of natural, soft fabrics like silk and cotton instead of polyester and wool, and use cotton sheets for a gentle touch during your sleep.
If your red, dry skin does not go away, it could be a skin condition such as psoriasis or atopic dermatitis, and it can be a symptom of disease like diabetes. Therefore, in that case, you need to see your doctor to know the cause and treat it.
