3 Tips for Caring for Dry Skin
At Natralus, we believe that it’s important to care for your skin at all times of life. You’re never too young or too old to start taking steps to preserve your epidermis. You also don’t need to wait until you have a skin issue to address it.
That said, there’s one common skin condition that everyone deals with from time to time: dry skin. If you’re suffering from dry skin, here are a few quick and easy ways that you can address the dryness.
1. Use Natralus Products
You saw this one coming, right? We have spent countless hours researching and experimenting with many of nature’s finest ingredients. Pawpaw obviously heads that list, but we also lean on the healing power of many of nature’s other great skin healers, as well, such as coconut oil, shea butter, and calendula oil. We also avoid nasties, like petroleum and parabens.
Natralus products are targeted for specific areas of the skin, too. We have lip balms, hand creams, and multi-use lotions. If you have seriously dry skin, you can even use our Natralus Superfood Repair Gel to accelerate the healing time.
Whatever the need, you’re always able to find a Natralus product that can help heal and moisturize that cracked, red skin.
2. Approach Hygiene Strategically
Whether you shower or bathe, there are multiple ways that you can use your cleaning time to help your skin. For instance, hot water can strip away the natural oils produced by your body. So can long periods of time spent in the water. Instead, opt for short showers with warmer water.
In addition, as you go through your hygiene routine, consider what products you’re using. Harsh, chemical-filled products can also be hard on the skin. They can exacerbate existing dry skin issues.
Instead look for clean, natural, sulphate-free shampoos and body washes for the shower or bath. Use natural, gentle options that use a soap-free formula to effectively refresh and clean your skin.
3. Consider Your Environment
Your environment can be a huge factor in how dry your skin is. Both hot and cold climates can suffer from dryness. Indoor heating systems can also make air dryer, as can windy outdoor conditions. Whatever environment you’re in, if you find that it’s dry, you can take steps to create a more skin-friendly air quality.
The best way to do this is by setting up a humidifier or two. This can help you regulate the dry air in your home and ensure that your hands aren’t drying out simply by existing in your living space.
It’s also recommended that you get a humidity gauge so that you can tell how well your humidifiers are working. You generally want the level between 30% and 40%. Over 50% can lead to discomfort and even mold growth.
Caring For Your Skin
You only get one skin in life. It needs to last from birth into old age — which means you need to take care of it. This can happen in a variety of ways, from improving your environment to adjusting your hygiene habits to using the right products to naturally care for your skin.
If you can follow the steps above, you can get rid of dry skin and all of the discomfort that accompanies it. In fact, if you’re proactive about it, you may be able to avoid letting that dry skin develop in the first place.
