Struggling with dry skin? Try these tips to hydrate skin and look great.
Although it seems like North Texas is humid year-round, our climate can be arid, too. When the air is dry, your skin is often affected; it may feel dry and tight. Dry skin can contribute to the development of blemishes and acne, as well as wrinkles, fine lines, and creases. We offer some natural ways to hydrate your skin and keep it looking youthful all year long.
4 Ways to Get Rid of Dry Skin
1. Drink Water
Drinking water is the No. 1 way you can help keep your skin hydrated. Water supports skin health by keeping cells functioning and plump. The result? Your skin looks brighter, feels softer and has fewer dark circles under your eyes.
Sometimes the water is not enough to rehydrate severely dry skin. If your skin is very dry or dull, use a high-quality moisturizing lotion or facial oil as part of your skin care routine. Facial oils contain omega and fatty acids that help revitalize your skin. Look for products that contain oils such as argan oil, emu oil, or grapeseed oil. These products can help make your skin soft and bright. They can also help to make your skin more elastic and supple, which can help prevent premature aging. Products that contain vitamin A or vitamin E are also essential for your skin health. Avoid heavy oils for your face such as coconut oil or cocoa butter. These products could clog pores and leave you with blemishes.
Specifically, plain yogurt. Yogurt is very good at hydrating the skin, but you don’t eat it in this case. Instead, you spread it on your face as a mask for about 10 minutes and then wash it off. Why yogurt? It is full of probiotics that can help to reduce redness and inflammation. Of course, we do not recommend using yogurt if you are sensitive or allergic to dairy.
Honey is an excellent way to moisturize your skin, too. This is because it acts as a humectant, which means that it helps retain moisture. You can combine honey with your favorite facial oil and use it as a scrub or combine it with yogurt to use as a face mask.
