How to get rid of dry skin?

Cooler climates, the improper use of products, and overexposure to extreme temperatures (hot or cold) can all contribute to a dry skin condition. Dry skin spans all ages, but is often common with dehydrated skin. Dry skin or dehydrated skin can be a temporary condition or a lifelong concern. Dry skin is most commonly caused by intrinsic aging, weather/environmental elements and/or lifestyle. For example, it can be caused by the use of inappropriate products on the skin, meaning it is extremely important to properly diagnose dry or dehydrated skin for the most effective treatment and product regimen.

Step 1. Avoid excessive use of products

Dry skin on face can often be uncomfortable, itchy, flaky and sensitive. Excessive sun exposure, external aggressors, a poor diet or unsuitable cosmetics are usually the cause of dehydrated skin. If dry skin needs adequate products to restore moisture, loading up on several layers of products will increase the risk of a skin reaction. It can be dangerous to layer products with too many active ingredients, especially without understanding these ingredients. If you layer too many products, they might also not absorb properly, cause clogged pores or breakouts. For dry skin on face, you want to privilege moisturizing properties, quality over quantity.

Step 2. Use the right moisturizer for dry skin

Dry skin remedies include a healthy lifestyle, but also the right skincare products. The lack of hydration is the main cause of dry skin. If hot water feels good on your skin, it is a very bad idea for your dry skin. You should wash your face with cold or warm water and reduce shower time to 5-10 minutes. After cleansing your face, proceed with the application of a moisturizer. The best moisturizer for dry skin should be alcohol and fragrance free. Look for ingredients that target dry skin. Always apply your skincare before your makeup. Preferably, also moisturize with a soothing face mask for dry skin at night.

Step 3. Include gentle skincare products in your skincare routine

Your skincare routine should consider your skin type and your skin concerns. For dry skin, choose gentle and nourishing skincare products that will not be too harsh on your skin, to relieve itchiness and dryness. Start with a cleanser and gently massage your face. If you need to exfoliate, do not scrub too much. Go easy with toners and other drying products made with alcohol. Follow with a daily facial moisturizer and SPF sunscreen for daytime. You can also use a hydrating face mask a few times a week. Learn how to get rid of dry skin with Kiehl’s moisturizing products.
