What to do about dry skin

Do you suffer from dry, itchy and perhaps irritated skin? You are certainly not the only one. Especially during the winter months, our skin has a lot to endure and you can easily feel tightness or suffer from extremely dry skin. Fortunately, there are several tips and tricks to give your dry facial skin the care it needs, such as an oily ointment. In this blog, we discuss what to do about dry skin.

What does good skincare consist of?

Itchy skin can be annoying and can have several causes. In some, makeup causes drier skin, while in others, dehydration is a major cause. So a good skincare routine looks different for everyone, but there are a few steps and products that work against dry skin, regardless of the cause.

Preventing dry skin

When you don’t drink enough water, you become dehydrated. A lack of fluids causes you to tire faster, have low energy and you may get headaches…. But it also affects your facial skin, so it becomes, you guessed it, drier. Your skin is deficient in moisture. Therefore, the best solution for dry skin is to drink enough, about 2.5 liters of water a day. It is important to drink enough water when you are dehydrated. Wetting your face is of little use. In fact, long, hot showers have a negative effect on sensitive skin. Be careful with frequent use of hot water, as this creates a dry air, which in turn therefore dries out your skin faster. So, although a hot shower is tempting during the cold winter days, it is better to take shorter, cold showers. This is not only better for your skin, but also for your wallet!

Lubricate with an oily cream

In addition to moisturizing, it is also important to use the right products for very dry skin. According to dermatologists, a cream that contains healthy fats is best for dry skin. Therefore, make sure to massage a nourishing cream on the dry spot on your face twice a day. Consider creams such as the All Purpose Skin Cream Sea Kelp & Vitamin E or the All Purpose Skin Cream Original. Tallow is one of the best ingredients for when you suffer from extremely dry skin. The fatty acid profile of this product is almost identical to your own skin which gives a natural protective layer to your skin. In addition, this is one of the best natural moisturizers without irritants you can find. So ideal for dry facial skin!

Use Tallow for dry skin

For example, if your cheeks feel rough or if you have a dry forehead, it is important to drink enough water and apply a cream or ointment to the dry area twice a day. A cream with specially developed Tallow is best for chapped skin. Some people are afraid of getting oily skin from an oily cream. This is not the case when using Tallow, as this ingredient maintains and restores your skin’s natural lipid profile. But why is this ingredient good for dehydrated skin? Tallow actually contains lipids, which are responsible for the free flow of moisture into and out of our cells. It maintains cellular moisture in your skin and prevents damaged skin. It also keeps your skin supple.
