Honing In On The Key Causes Of Dry Skin

If it seems like you’re constantly struggling with dry skin regardless of what hydrating lotion you use, you may want to take a look around. Your environment may be causing you to scratch more often than you think. Here are some of the most common catalysts for dry skin.

Winter weather
Everyday Health states that winter weather is a big cause for this problem, and it can be difficult to avoid. Your best defense against this issue is to use an efficient moisturizer that caters to your type of skin, whether it’s naturally oily or dry.

Hot water
The Mayo Clinic claims that hot water can dramatically increase the dryness of skin. To remedy this issue, opt for warm showers and baths and limit how much time you spend in them. In the end, your skin will thank you!

Harsh soaps
Soap can be another culprit when it comes to this problem. If you have sensitive skin, try to stay away from formulas that include fragrances, which can be irritating. Look for soaps or body washes that specifically state moisturizing qualities on the label.

By taking these tips into account, you can ensure that you’re never wasting your time scratching your precious skin!

My favorite beauty product is... - Anything containing sea salt. It's probably the most amazing exfoliant I've ever used and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smoother than ever. Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
