One of the most prevalent, common Skin conditions that occur across people of all ages, is Dry skin. Dry skin could be unsightly to look at, the person having it might not feel very confident “in their own skin”, and of course, the skin being devoid of moisture for too long could lead to permanent damage as well.
Treating Dry skin is quite a challenge, not because there’s not enough information out there about how to go about doing it, but because there’s just way too much information to sift through, and a lot of it is either useless or outdated.
Now that winters are here, the driest time of the year is upon us all, and with that, the incidences of Dry skin are surely going to be on the rise. Therefore, today we’re going to discuss 5 sure shot ways to treat dry skin, with some product recommendations that will help.
So let’s get right to it!
1. Use A Toxin-Free Cleanser
Cleansers and other beauty/cleaning products that come loaded with Sulphates and other chemicals can do more harm to your skin than good. It is an oft-repeated but less-taken piece of advice that a Toxin-free Natural Cleanser product should be used to avoid the occurrence of Dry Skin.
The meaning of the term “natural” itself is usually distorted when it comes to cleansing products. You need to pick a product that has a natural base.
One of the best products in this range is The Moms Co. Natural Calming Wash. Containing Patchouli and Lavender Essential Oils, Coconut based cleansers and Pro-Vitamin B5 enrichment, the wash gives a soothing, calming effect, which provides your skin with an incredible cleansing option without exposing it to harmful Toxins!
Highly recommended. http://themoms.co/calmingwash.
2. Maintain Moisture Levels – Inside And Outside!
To avoid Dry skin, it’s important to make sure that neither you nor your skin is parched for moisture. What we mean by this is that you need to make sure that you drink an adequate amount of water during the day, so that your body doesn’t get dehydrated. Dehydration in the body can lead to dry skin and several other health complications, so avoid it at all costs (1).
Secondly, if you’re living in an area that has particularly dry air, it’s probably a good idea for you to get a humidifier (2). A Humidifier helps by maintaining a recommended amount of moisture in the air, which allows your skin to retain its’ own moisture without drying out.
3. Using Natural Skincare Products
The benefits of naturally occurring substances such as coconuts, shea butter etc. on the human skin are far too many to count. Shea butter is a vitamin-C rich ingredient having properties which are not only antioxidant but also anti-inflammatory (3).
Shea Butter based body lotions also work REALLY well on dry skin! It allows the skin to gain and maintain the moisture levels that it requires. . If you’re looking to buy a body lotion for yourself, try to get one rich in Shea Butter or moisturizing oils.
But, of course, things would be a lot better if you could have both, yes? The Moms Co. Natural Body Lotion is one such incredible product.
The completely natural Body Lotion has ingredients Shea Butter, Coconut oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Rosehip Oil, Honey Extract and Chamomile Oil. This lotion helps protect, moisturize, soothe and nourish your skin in the most holistic way possible with no side-effects of harmful toxic chemicals and substances!
4. Avoid Warm Showers
There’s nothing more calming and relaxing than having a nice, long, warm shower at the end of the day. However, warm or hot showers can cause dry skin and can even cause existing skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis to flare up (4).
Staying under warm water for too long can quickly rob your body of its’ natural moisture and can make it very difficult to reinstate the moisture equilibrium, unless you’re using the right bathing products.
If you have to take a hot shower, make sure that your exposure to it is brief and limited. You must also use a bathing product that takes care of your skin’s moisture.
We’ve recommended The Moms’ Co. Natural Calming Wash earlier in this article, which, with its’ Pro Vitamin B5 content, provides an enhanced moisturizing effect. The wash’s coconut-based cleaners also top-up your skin’s moisture levels while cleaning it simultaneously! Whether your baths and showers are hot or cold, using a moisturizing wash such as The Moms’ Co Natural Calming Wash will surely have your skin thanking you later!
5. Give your skin a 24*7 nourishment
As much as we like to think the winters add that pinkish glow to our skin we might be seriously mistaken!. This is the time of the year when your skin is robbed off its moisture. This is the time when your skin needs the utmost care and nourishment. We are so layered up in clothes that it is easy to skip moisturizing and we only realize it when the skin reaches the point of itchiness.
What do you have to do then? You need a deeply nourishing solution, a heavily moisturizing butter that provides immediate respite to your dry itchy skin. The Moms Co. Natural Body Butter with ingredients like Cocoa and Shea Butters and Oils like Coconut, Wheat Germ, Sweet Almond Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sea Buckthorn, Rosehip and added Natural Vitamin E promises deep nourishment and moisturization for your dry skin.
6. Ensure Regular Use
Always make sure that for best results you apply an adequate amount of whichever product you’re using on your skin Many times we tend to not use the product regularly or apply very little quantities, and expect great results.
When it comes to preventing dry skin, make sure you apply the skincare products adequately, ensuring proper coverage of the skin. Even though top-tier products such as those manufactured by The Moms Co. don’t require a lot of application to be effective, and what’s even better is that the entire product range is Australian certified toxin free range.
Winters are here, and so is dry skin. We hope that you can make good use of these tips and recommendations, to keep your skin in a happy, healthy and well-moisturized condition throughout these dry, cold months.
Apart from these products The Moms Co. offers an entire range of Certified Toxin Free and Made Safe products for moms and moms to be.
