How to care for dry skin
The colder months can cause our skin to become dry, chapped, and red. If you are trying to alleviate your dry skin, then you’ve come to the right place. Read on for how to prevent dry skin.
Hydrate with water.
If you do not drink enough water, your body will become dehydrated. Dehydration will affect the hydration of your skin, so make sure you’re drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day.
Exfoliating your face and body of old cells is the key to letting the lively ones underneath come to surface and shine, giving you healthier skin overall. Make sure that you are exfoliating with a face scrub or chemical exfoliator about two to three times per week. We recommend SkinMedica’s AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser to sluff away dry skin. This elegantly formulated exfoliating cleanser gently scrubs away dead skin, improving the appearance of skin tone and texture.
Find the right moisturizer for you.
It can be difficult to choose the right product for your skin. After all, not all skin was created equally and there is often some trial and error when it comes to choosing the most effective moisturizer. For treating dry skin, we recommend Obagi’s Nu-Derm® System. This system is the physician-dispensed, prescription-strength skincare system that can actually transform your skin at the cellular level. By restoring the healthy function of your skin cells, this system is clinically proven to result in younger and healthier looking skin.
Keep in mind that the skin on your face is different than the skin on your body so you’ll want to choose a different moisturizer for both. Moisturizers will also act as a protective shield against sun, wind, and cold.
