Dry skin is one of the most common problems people have; whether related to daily skincare or to dermatological problems diagnosed by doctors. Everyone knows that the best treatment for dry skin is a good moisturizer, yet, adding body lotion and a cream often provide a multiple protection. Weather and temperature changes, the use of chemicals and detergents, the wrong type of soap or cleanser, a diet that lacks in essential nutrients and even health problems like diabetes and thyroid dysfunctions can be behind such a common symptom as dry skin. The treatment for dry skin is established depending on the elements that cause the skin dryness.
If you pay enough attention to your daily routines and eating habits you may learn something about the right treatment for your dry skin. Do you eat enough fruits and vegetables? Do you stay properly hydrated? Do you take quick showers or hot baths? What kind of makeup do you use? Do you have enough sleep at night?
You may even search online to see which are the causes and the factors that aggravate skin dryness to find a more efficient intervention against them. If we were to answer just one of the above questions: hydration is reflected in the condition of the skin.
If you drink enough liquids, the toxins are more easily flushed from the system and the tissues are kept moist and fresh: with an insufficient water intake the skin will look dull. Therefore, moisturize on the outside, but hydrate on the inside: this should be the number one rule for a treatment for dry skin. Avoid alcohol as it accelerates dehydration. The body useds a lot of water to make considerable efforts to eliminate the ingested alcohol. It is also worth mentioning the fact that there are a huge number of homemade recipes that can support a basic weekly treatment for dry skin.
Fruits, vegetables, yogurt, cold-pressed oils, herbs and honey can easily become the right ingredients for such a treatment for dry skin. However, keep in mind that a daily routine is the real treatment for dry skin and therefore try to give it time to work. Make sure to wake up early enough in the morning to have time to pamper your skin a little: cleaning, moisturizing and only then make-up application. The same thing should be done in the evening before going to bed but the other way round: make up removal, cleaning and moisturizing.
