3 Practical Tips on Dry Skin Care

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Looking for ways to tackle your dry skin problem? If yes, we are here to help by providing you 3 practical tips on dry skin care. Read below to get started.

 

Moisturize to Your Heart’s Content

When your skin is dry it is extremely sensitive and requires much care. To take care of your skin you should avoid creams and lotions that contain petroleum products such as mineral oils. Use instead creams and other skin care products that have natural hypoallergenic ingredients.

For example, after showering you should pat your body with virgin coconut oil, cocoa butter, or shea butter. These types of skin care products should contain vitamins A, C, D and E. Natural creams and lotions will keep your skin moisturized and protect your skin from aging.

 

Avoid Tap Water

When you have dry skin, the worst thing you can do to it is use tap water to wash your skin. Tap water contains chlorine fluoride that can be harsh on your already fragile skin. To protect your skin, use cold mineral water or mineral water ice cubes to clean your face. You can also clean your face with an alcohol-free cleaning lotion. This will help refresh your dry skin and keep your face moisturized. It helps remove makeup and other daily impurities from your skin as well.

 

Add Good Oils To Your Diet

Have you ever heard the saying “You are what you eat,”? It is true. A good way to prevent your skin from being dry is to include essential oils in your diet. Some essential oils are raw organic butter, cod liver oil, Omega-3 eggs, coconut oil, and fresh cold-water fish.

Top 4 Causes of Dry Skin

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

 

Do you know what are the top 4 causes of dry skin? If you do not know, we are here to help you by providing you a list of the top 4. Read below to get started.

 Winter Weather

 Your skin is most commonly dry during the winter months. This dry skin occurs because the humidity level outside drops. The air outside is cold and dry which make the water in your skin evaporate faster. Your skin becomes dry, tight and flaky. Windy weather can also harm your skin by making your skin feel dry and chapped. This is known as winter skin.

You can protect your skin from winter weather by wearing gloves, scarves, and by covering your whole body with clothing. Make sure you use moisturizing lotions that contain the ingredient glycerin. Glycerin helps moisturize your skin. Make sure you moisturize your hands, feet, elbows and knees daily.

 Indoor Heating

 During the wintertime, we spend more time indoors and use indoor heating. Indoor heating is dry indoor air. This dry air removes the moisture from your mucous membranes. As a result of this drying out, your lips become chapped, your nose dries out causing nosebleeds, and your throat dries out allowing you to have a sore throat during the cold season.

You can help prevent this from happening by setting your heater to the lowest setting of comfort and you can use a humidifier at night. A humidifier helps hydrate your dry skin, dry throat, and nasal passages.

Long Hot Showers and Baths

 When you come in from being out in the cold, taking a long hot shower or bath may not be your best option. Hot and harsh water soaking on your skin will strip your skin of protective oils making your skin extra dry.

When you shower or bathe, use warm water rather than hot water. Your showers and baths should be limited to 10 minutes. This is enough to clean the dirt of your body. Pat yourself dry and do not rub yourself with a towel.

 Use Body Lotion

 Do not skip putting on body lotion on your skin. You need it not only during the winter but also during the summer. When you do not keep body lotion on your skin, your skin becomes itchy, flaky and uncomfortable. You should always apply a rich body lotion right after showering or bathing to seal in the moisture to your skin. Apply lotion again right before you go outside and before bed. Lotions with glycerin will hold moisture in your skin and keep your skin hydrated.

The Superb Benefits of Vitamin C For Your Skin

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Did you know that Vitamin C could benefit your skin? If you did not, we are here to tell you about the wonderful healing powers of Vitamin C. Read below to learn.

You may have been told that vitamin C can help you avoid sickness but now research has revealed that vitamin C can also maintain the health of your skin. When your body does not have enough vitamin C, you can suffer from bleeding under your skin, ulcers and the weakening of your joints.

Vitamin C is an ascorbic acid and can produce collagen. Collagen is a protein that helps your body grow cells and blood vessels. Collagen allows your skin to be firm and strong. Vitamin C will help your skin repair itself by slowing the rate of damage that unstable molecules can do to collagen. When you give your skin enough vitamin C, you will decrease the development of skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Also vitamin C can reduce sunburn and protect you skin from skin cancer.

Reward your skin with the benefits of vitamin C, with Plantogen products such as Plantogen Skin Bright Organic Skin Bright Microdermabrasion which includes Vitamin C that will dissolve away dull looking skin and improve cellular turnover. See Plantogen’s other Skin Brightening Line products that include vitamin C.
