How To Deal With Dry Skin

Nearly everyone will experience dry skin at some point in their life. While it typically won't cause any serious health problems, dry skin is both uncomfortable and unattractive to look at. The reddish patches  across the affected areas of your body may begin to flake and even crack open, which can lead to itching and discomfort. Thankfully, however, there are now proven methods for both treating and preventing dry skin, no matter how severe the problem is.

The first step in dealing with dry skin is to understand what causes it. As you may have guessed, prolonged exposure to the sun is one of the most common causes. Whether you're laying out on the beach, working in the garden or just going for a jog around the neighborhood, too much exposure to the sun will literally suck the moisture content out of your skin. The best way to prevent this from occurring is to apply sunscreen over your skin and drink plenty of water (not soda). Sunscreen is effective at both reflecting the sun's UV rays and moisturizing your skin, so you're essentially killing two birds with one stone.

Many people seem to have the worst problems with dry skin during the winter months. This is because of the low (sometimes non-existent) humidity levels in the air. Although you can't see it, the air is usually filled with small water molecules that land on our skin and act as natural moisturizers. The winter season for most regions is a time that lacks nature's own moisturizer, so there's a greater chance that you'll experience dry skin. If your skin becomes dry during the winter, counteract the problem by using more moisturizing creams and avoiding the outdoors as much as possible. You don't have stay cooped up inside all day, but you should give your skin a break from the harsh low-humidity atmosphere once in a while.

The number one tool in your battle against dry skin is a high-quality moisturizing cream. Don't just buy the first cream you come across at the grocery store, but instead look for an all-natural cream with some ingredients that are proven to help. Some of the ingredients that you should use to treat dry skin include aloe vera, olive oil, Vitamin D and honey.

A good exfoliating cream can also be helpful for treating dry skin. When the skin loses its moisture, it begins to flake and peel. These dead cells will stick on your skin's surface where they clog the pores, resulting in acne and other blemishes. The only way you're going to rid your body of these clogged pores is by cleaning them out through exfoliation. A quick once-a-day exfoliating treatment will remove the dead skin cells from your pores and body, leaving you with fresh, youthful skin once again.

Following the tips above will help get on the right path to healthy skin. Treating dry skin isn't difficult, but you must constantly work on protecting it from the elements. When it's cold, windy or sunny outside, thoroughly apply moisturizer on your body at the end of the day.
