If you’re like me and you suffer from dry facial skin, don’t give up, there is hope. Here are some easy tips that you can start using today to help lessen the symptoms of dry skin or alleviate dry skin altogether.
Everyday factors such as your diet, the environment you live in and the products you currently use on your skin will all have an impact on the overall health and condition of not just your skin but your whole body as well.
Follow these 3 simple tips starting today and your skin will show remarkable improvement in no time.
1. Your body isn’t just made up of one component, such as your skin, it’s a complex ‘machine’ that needs proper care for it to run properly. Just like you wouldn’t knowingly put bad gas in your car, you shouldn’t load your body up with foods that aren’t good for it.
Perfect skin starts on the inside and works it’s way out. If your diet isn’t providing you with enough nutrients and hydration than your skin will never look it’s best no matter how much money you spend on expensive creams and lotions.
Try to eat more fruits and vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Steer clear of too much fatty food, sugars, and caffeine. Make sure you get enough sleep every night. All of these things will have your body purring like a fine racing car, and that will be written all over your face!
2. The world isn’t out to get you, but your skin can still take a beating. Where you live will play a large role in your skin needs: If you live in a hot dry climate that will dry your skin, if you live in a humid climate that can create too much sweat which is actually allowing bacteria to form on your skin that can create problems, or if you live in a large city where there is a lot of pollutants such as car exhaust that too can damage your skin.
The point is that you need to not only know what the particular needs of your skin type are you also need to take into consideration environmental factors that can stress your skin. Once you have taken these factors into account you will be better able to pick out the right skin care regime for you.
3. What products are you currently using on your skin? Did you know that most store bought lotions, even the uber expensive ones, actually are too big at a molecular level to be absorbed into your skin? They will actually form a layer on top of your skin preventing moisture from getting into the layers of skin which creates the very dryness they are supposed to cure.
It then becomes a vicious cycle of applying lotion and not feeling like your skin is moist enough and applying more moisturizer. Your skin never gets the hydration it needs and you spend a fortune on lotion.
For this reason you should really spend some time and do some research on different types of lotions. Don’t just buy the most expensive or the one with the most commercials.
If you suffer from dry facial skin just try to implement one or more of the above minor lifestyle changes into your daily routine. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you can see a change when you look in the mirror.
