Skin is made up of three layers. They are the outer layer (epidermis), the underlying skin (dermis) and the subcutaneous tissue. If epidermis doesn’t contain enough water, skin will lose elasticity and feel rough and dry.
One of the causes of dry skin is DNA. Your genes determine what skin type you have. So some of us have skin that tends to be oily, while others have skin that tends to be little or very dry. No one skin type is either good or bad, it’s important to know what type of skin you have and understand how to take care of it.
Many people suffer from dry skin on their face. Their face can flake and become red. When your skin loses moisture and flaky skin sets in, it is very hard to restore that moisture. There are some steps you can follow to stop your skin from drying. Environment you live in has a huge impact on your face skin, because it is always exposed to the elements.
If you live in a hot, dry climate, you’ll probably have to work harder to keep your facial skin hydrated. The same applies to environments characterized by cold weather and wind.
Soap is harsh and drying to the skin. In order to prevent skin from drying and being flaky, you must use a gentle, moisturizing cleanser specifically formulated for dry skin. Never wash your face with soap.
You have to moisturize skin to keep it from drying out. If you’re prone to dry skin or flaky skin, use a moisturizer every day. Put it immediately after you get out of the shower. You should also reapply it 2-3 times a day.
The most important thing to prevent dry skin is to wash it properly. The frequency of showers and the water temperature you’re using. Also depends on how long it takes you to shower. Try to take a bath not too often and not too long. The water must be warm not hot.
So keep your bath short, and make sure the water is lukewarm or even slightly cold. But not all people like to take shower in cold water, so it is not necessary. Gently pat your skin dry with a towel after you bathe.
A healthy lifestyle is important. Drink water, eat well, exercise, and stick to a well-balanced diet to keep your mind, body, and skin healthy.
