There’s nothing wrong with dry skin; for one you have a lesser tendency of getting acne and breakouts. On the other hand you are most prone to eczema and other skin disorders. Dry skin is common to those above 35 year. This is due to the fact that the oil producing glands slow down their production.
Dry skin leads to premature aging due to wrinkles and fine lines, age spots and sagging skin. The skin lacks moisture and natural oils. In some cases you may experience dry skin only during winter months. This is because the cold winds steal the moisture from your skin leaving it dry.
The key to treating dry skin is to moisturize it well. Use a cream or lotion that is readily available or use one of the methods that we recommend.
-Mix a spoon full of fresh cream with grated almonds and massage it onto your skin before you bathe. The fresh cream will nourish your skin and give it the essential nutrients that it requires.
-Avoid bathing in hot water. Use warm or cold water for your bath. Bathe in milk as frequently as possible.
-Drink plenty of water to help to keep your skin well moisturized and hydrated. If you are dehydrated, chances are that your body will borrow moisture from your skin; leaving your skin dry.
-Use an exfoliating scrub to get rid of dead skin cells on your body. This will help to generate new skin cells. After exfoliating use Aloe Vera all over your body. Since it is a natural product; it helps to heal and soothe your skin and provide it with the natural nutrients that it requires.
-To prevent your skin from getting dry; avoid drinking tea and coffee as these drinks have a diuretic effect on your system. Avoid colas and sodas as they are caffeine based drinks.
