We all wish we had perfect skin, but that is not the case for most of us. Some have oilier than usual skin, while others have dry skin, which often feels tight and flaky most of the time. Dry skin happens when the skin’s natural oils and fats are low and moisture is sapped from the outermost layer of the skin.
The top causes of dry skin are:
If your parents and immediate family members have dry skin, it is likely you have it too.
As you age, oil production reduces. This is why older people tend to have flaky skin.
Many soaps strip moisture from your skin as they are formulated to remove oil.
Smoking, sun exposure and excess alcohol consumption all dehydrate your skin over time.
Having a radiant, hydrated and healthy skin is a combination of both external and internal factors. These are my recommendations:
Drinking water adequately will keep your skin moist and maintain its water content.
If you have dry skin, moisturise your body regularly especially after taking a shower.
Use Soft Sponges
Soft sponges remove dry and dead skin cells, without damaging your skin in the process.
Use Mild Soaps
Mild soaps soften and soothe your skin because it doesn’t strip away its natural nutrients and oils.
