Infact, all he gets is a dry feel, and you realise that your skin is dry- including your cheek and lips. The life of your skin always fades away during cold atmosphere. You lose the shine of your face, as well, and that is the reason why you have to keep it moisturized.
A lively skin gives an added confidence to your persona. Here are some tips you can use to attain a desirable dryness- free skin:
How to Care for Dry Skin
Ditch Your Soap
Ditch you daily bathing soap to a moisturizing body wash that would help your skin look better. Usage of soap is harsh to your body and it makes your skin extra dry.
The shower gels will not extract the extra oils from your skin and keep a balance between the required amount of oils and unnecessary ones too.
Apply Lotion After Bath
Always remember to apply lotion on your body after taking bath and whenever you wash your hands and face. This is one rule you should follow without fail to conquer the extremities of your skin.
We often forget about moisturizing our toes and feet. Do it on a daily basis without fail for these are some areas that are often ignored. The skin behind your ears is not immune to dryness, apply some there as well.
Carry A Lotion In Your Bag
You know you’ve a dry skin and that is why you should never forget to carry a lotion in your bag. During working hours, we wash hands and face after which we forget to moisturize. Don’t neglect it. Moisturize as often as you can.
Cover Your Hands And Feet
One tip for you would be that after the application of moisturizer, wear your gloves and socks. Your skin would be in a better condition. Infact, try wearing socks and gloves when you move out in winters.
Take Care Of Your Face
Use a moisturizing face wash or the one that is especially for dry skin. After that apply some good face cream in order to keep your skin healthy. Exfoliate your skin on a regular basis.
You may use homemade scrubs like sugar and baking soda for this purpose. Sugar does wonders to your skin. Do not over apply. Use adequate amount of cream only.
Use a Lip Balm
Use a lip balm at regular intervals. Don’t put on the whole quantity. Always try to use just the apt amount of moisturizer for your body. Never over apply any where.
And just the way you exfoliate your body, do this to your lips too. A home remedy for extra dry lips is application of lemon juice, honey and glycerine before going to sleep at night.
