5 Special Tips for Soft Skin
Dry skin (xerosis) is a fairly common condition among men and women of all ages. While it can be a symptom of a more serious problem, in most cases dry skin is simply a result of environmental factors that remove moisture from the skin.
Since there are so many possible causes, there is no one perfect solution that you can use to get rid of dry skin forever. However, a few simple changes in your daily routine can soothe your dry skin and make it feel healthy and smooth once again. To help you out, here are 5 simple steps that you can take to deal with your dry skin problem.
Turn Down The Shower Temperature
A hot, steamy shower might feel good, but if you’re suffering from dry skin it might be better to turn the temperature down a little. Your skin has a natural oil barrier that helps to trap moisture and keep your skin smooth. The problem with hot showers is that they can strip away this natural barrier, leaving your skin feeling scaly and dry. To prevent this from occurring, lower the water temperature and try to avoid staying in the shower for too long. According to dermatologists, if you have dry skin it’s better to have short, warm showers between 5 to 10 minutes long.
Eat More Antioxidants
Dry skin is exposed to elements that may be damaging your skin cells faster than your body can replace them. Consider consuming more antioxidant rich foods to compensate.
Antioxidants are good for your skin because they help to minimize damage from toxins and support your body when it comes to making newer, healthier cells. Examples of antioxidant rich foods that you can add to your diet include, blueberries, tomatoes, carrots, and beans.
Foods that are filled with omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon should also be included in your diet as they contribute to healthy skin.
Grab Some Gloves
Like it or not, your hands are usually the first place to be affected by dry skin. This is because your hands tend to have the most contact with environmental irritants such as dish soap and laundry detergent. Put on some insulated gloves whenever you’re cleaning to protect your hands from chemicals and greases. If you live in a cold country, it’s also recommended to get some gloves before going outside during winter.
Add Some Moisture To Your Air
In a hot country like Malaysia, many of us use air cons to stay cool all day. Unfortunately, air conditioning dries out the air and reduces humidity, sending your body’s natural moisture balance out of whack. Being exposed to cold, dry air is bad for your skin especially if you’re already suffering from skin conditions such as eczema.
To keep your skin healthy, consider setting up a humidifier in your home or office. Aim for an indoor humidity level of about 50%.
