Dry skin can be uncomfortable and unsightly, diminishing plump cells and creating fine lines and wrinkles long before they are due.
Dehydration of the skin can cause it to become dry. This may only be a temporary problem brought on, for instance, by the colder weather in winter. However, other environmental factors including exposure to wind, salt water, sun, harsh soaps or chemicals can also lead to the skin becoming dry. Other signs of dry skin you may experience include:
the skin feeling tight especially after showering or swimming
fine lines or cracks appearing in the skin
the skin feeling itchy or scaly
In most cases dry skin problems respond well to self-care measures. Although it may not be possible to achieve flawless skin, the following measures can help keep your skin healthy.
Drink eight glasses of water each day
Take showers less frequently to retain your skin's natural oils which help hold in moisture
Avoid harsh, drying soaps
Use a humidifier
Regular exercise benefits the skin as it boosts circulation and encourages blood flow
Moisturize often with Nature's Gold Classic Skin Cream to rehydrate the dry areas of skin. The hydroscopic effect of the Manuka Honey will provide nourishment and hydration for dry skin.
