Dry skin mostly tends to lose its glow in the process of losing moisture and hence regular application of moisturizer, cleanser and cream is recommended for the retention of healthy glow on your skin. Dry skin though has one advantage of contacting less dirt and pollution. The various branded and designer companies produce moisturizers and cleansers for treating dry skin and as these products undergo strict chemical tests to render them skin friendly and to prevent them from creating skin irritation. Dry skin is highly dependent on moisturizer and thus even before applying makeup one needs to apply moisturizer or cleansing milk so that the skin look moist and tight as well else it will loose its glow and look dull in the process.
Dry skin which is more prone to skin sensitivities can be treated equally well with homemade natural products as homemade natural products protect the skin from rashes and irritation and do not cause skin sensitivities which most of the chemically manufactured products tend to do. For treating dry skin, the best home remedy ingredients are honey, apple, bananas, poppy seeds, olive oil etc. which renders moisture to the skin and makes it look healthy and glowing at the same time. Dry skin is highly sensitive to citrus fruit extracts and astringent products and in case of irritation, avoid using those products immediately and rinse off well. Even while using soap, make sure to use the soaps like Dove with high moisturizer contents. Avoid sitting in the air conditioner as it may absorb your skin moisture and leave it dry and dull, more so, leading to a cracked skin. While using makeup, apply a creamy foundation which will last longer on your skin and occasional steaming will help you hydrate your skin leaving a lively glow on your face. Compared to oily skin, dry skin needs exfoliation only once in a week. Always remember to apply lots of moisturizer after you are done with skin exfoliation process. It helps to seal the moisture on your skin. Dry or dehydrated skin mostly results from less lubrication from the oil glands. Often such skin type is genetically inherited, while poor diet can also be another reason. Deficiencies of vitamin A and B and conditions like dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis can also cause dry skin, while winter tends to be the worse timing for those with dry skin. Egg yolk is another very fruitful natural product for treating dry skin. A mixture of egg yolk with orange juice, olive oil and rose water makes an excellent morning skin cleanser. With proper treatment and care you will come to love your dry skin.
