How to Remedy Dry Skin on Your Face, Body and Lips

How to Remedy Dry Skin on Your Face, Body and Lips

Weather changes cause dry skin as cold, fall winds and heated, indoor air pull moisture out of your skin.

It happens every year. If you wait too long to switch-up your skin care for fall, you see the dry-flaking. If you wait even longer, you’ll see chapping and feel itching and skin tightness.

This is impending eczema!

3 Simple Tips from my Dermatology Practice Will Fix Dry Skin

1.  Use only gentle soaps and cleansers.
Lather up only areas with excess oil or body odor when you bathe. Those are your face, ears, neck, chest, upper back, armpits, groin, and feet. The skin of your tummy, low back, arms and legs often don’t need direct lathering with soap or shower gel.

2. Use warm water instead of steamy, hot water to bathe.
You’ve noticed that grease comes off pots and pans better with hot water. The same is true for your skin – and stripping too much of your skin’s natural oil will lead to dryness. Use warm water and rinse all soap residue off well.

3. Apply moisturizer within the magic, 3 minutes after stepping out of your bath or shower or after washing your face.
These 3 minutes are magic because you’ll hold in water that your skin soaked up during the washing process. Skin is like a sponge to water, and you want a moist sponge not a dry one! Use a moisturizer that you love so that you’ll use it daily. For your lips, they are moistened by licking or drinking, and the same concept applies. Use a natural and hypoallergenic lip balm or lip stick often to prevent lip chapping.
