General Tips to Prevent Dryness
Dry skin can be a problem in more ways than one – it can dry and parched, leaving patches of dry skin, but the worst is when it cracks and the cracks can get infected when left unattended.
Keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized is the key to keeping dry skin at bay.
Having a regular skincare routine can also help with maintaining a soft and supple skin.
Regular exfoliation is important to get rid of dry and dead skin cells from the skin’s surface to restore skin’s shine and luster.
As mentioned earlier, excessive and long hot water showers and baths can dry out your skin sooner and also, accelerates ageing. Keep them to a minimum or use warm to tepid water instead of boiling hot water.
Last but not the least, massaging your skin once a month with oils to nourish, rejuvenate and repair your skin is a good practice. Pick oils that are available in your area and suit your skin, to make acquiring and using easier.
Also, avoid using chemical-laden cosmetics and products that would do more harm than good and try DIY recipes for healthy skin or beauty.
