10 TIPS TO AVOID DRY SKIN

10 TIPS TO AVOID DRY SKIN

DISCOVER OUR 10 TIPS TO PREVENT AND CARE FOR DRY SKIN. 

Our skin changes over time, and external environmental factors such as sun exposure and pollution can make our skin drier. But don't be discouraged: with small actions in your daily life, you can prevent and take care of dry skin in no time. Check out our 10 tips for taking care of dry skin

 

1. Stay hydrated and maintain a well-balanced diet

It's not a myth: we really should drink at least 2 liters of water per day. Water is key to ensuring that we maintain a healthy, hydrated skin. Also, make sure you include fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. These foods contain vitamins and antioxidants that help keep your skin more hydrated.
 

2. Take advantage of natural vitamins and antioxidants 

Contrary to what you might think, sun exposure is not always harmful to our skin. Quite the opposite: a little sun every day, with proper UV protection, provides you with vitamins, especially vitamin C and vitamin E, as well as antioxidants such as Zinc and Selenium, which prevent dry skin. Vegetables and fruits, again, will also bring you the vitamins and antioxidants needed to protect your skin. 
 

3. Avoid long and too hot baths 

Long, very hot baths can dry out your skin. Reduce the time you spend in the bath and make sure the water temperature is not too high.
 

4. Choose neutral products to wash the humid areas

Use neutral soaps, such as children's soaps, to wash the wettest areas of the skin (underarms, breasts, intimate area, buttocks, and between the toes). Also, avoid antibacterial or scented soaps, as these irritate dry, sensitive skin more than neutral soaps. 
 

5. Do not use scouring pads or sponges on dry skin areas 

When washing the drier areas of the body, such as the arms, legs, elbows and knees, avoid using scouring pads or sponges so as not to cause firction with the skin. 
 

6. Make up for sun exposure 

On beach and pool days, when sun exposure is more intense, sunscreen is a must. In addition, on days of greater sun exposure, we should make sure to drink more water and apply more moisturizing cream, to restore the skin hydration and not let it dry out too much. 
 

7. Choose the right products for your skin

After washing your skin, apply a hypoallergenic moisturizer. This type of moisturizer contains components such as glycerin, petroleum jelly, and vegetable and/or mineral oils. When you suffer from dry and sensitive skin, you should avoid moisturizers with abrasive substances in their composition (such as propylene glycol or urea). Be sure to read labels and choose the right product for your skin. If in doubt, consult a dermatologist. 
 

8. Create a proper skin care routine 

Choosing the right skincare for your skin is challenging, especially when you are not an expert in the field. It is important to seek help and advice from professionals who really know how to guide you and suggest the most suitable products to treat your problems (in this case, dry skin). Regardless of the products chosen, your skincare should contain the following steps: cleansing, toner, serums, moisturizer, sunscreen
 

9. Don't skip nighttime skincare 

We know that sometimes we're just not in the mood, but not skipping skincare at night is key to keeping your skin healthy and hydrated. A regular and complete skincare routine brings excellent results for the skin. At night, we suggest adding a Hyaluronic Acid care to prevent skin aging as well. 
 

10. Don't forget to exfoliate your skin 

The drier your skin is, the greater the need to remove the dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin. These dead cells make the skin more dull, dry and can even clog pores, affecting the absorption of moisturizing products. Exfoliating the skin is key to removing these cells, regenerating the skin and preparing it for the care that follows. After exfoliation, apply your moisturizer and you'll have smoother, healthier skin.
