For those that suffer from dry skin
, treating it can be extremely frustrating. You have experienced how difficult it can be to deal with this skincare phenomena. You have tried and applied all manners of lotions and potions, but in the end all they do is mask the problem and your still have dry skin
. This is because the problem has only been treated topically and the real solution can lie within you.
Real treatment for dry skin
is two fold. You must begin from the inside and flank this step with topical moisturizer
, preferably organic skincare moisturizers, as they are in my opinion the healthier choice. Treating it in this manner could save you lots of money and time in the end.
Also, don't use skincare products that have been crafted with artificial and potentially harmful chemicals. These, regardless of their claim are counter-productive and will exacerbate the problem and ultimately lead you to believe that you have no solution.
Additionally if you began to add up all the lotions and potions you will probably be shocked at the amount of money you have spent without any real improvement in how your skin looks and feels. Fortunately, there are plenty of natural alternatives to those costly moisturizers, some as close as your fridge or your pantry.
In fact, the answer to your dry skin
could lie in your diet, since one of the most common causes of dry skin
is a deficiency of vitamin A and the vitamins in the B-complex family. If you are troubled by dry skin
, take a few minutes to review your diet and look for ways to incorporate these important vitamins into your daily routine. Not only will you be healthier, but you - and your skin - will feel better too.
Also, eating lots of carrots and green leafy vegetables, as well as lean meats and poultry, can give your skin the nutrients it needs, and help you look your best. And the good news is a whole pantry full of vegetables costs less than a single dry skin
treatment from the dermatologist or magic potion from the makeup counter at the local department store.
However, natural remedies might take sometime to have an apparent effect. Don't be dishearten as real solutions are not covering the problem but are eliminating it and sometimes this can take a while.
Beyond your diet, the way you care for your skin can have a huge impact on the appearance of your skin. Everything from the makeup you use to your daily skin care regimen can have a big effect on your skin and your overall appearance.
If you love taking hot showers, for instance, you could be unknowingly harming your skin and drying it out even more. Keeping those showers to a more moderate temperature, and limiting their duration, can keep your skin healthy and strong. And if taking a bath, don't make them too hot. Instead add a few drops of bath oil to the water and apply a moisturizer as soon as you emerge from the shower or bath
, giving your skin an immediate supple feeling.
If your dry skin
problem extends to yourlips
as well, you can treat that problem naturally as well. Many dry skin
sufferers also suffer from chapped lips, especially in the winter
when the cold dry conditions and dry air can make an existing problem even worse. If you suffer from chapped lips, try applying a small amount of coconut oil
to your lips each day. Coconut oil
is safe and effective, and it has a pleasant taste and attractive appearance.
No matter what the cause of your dry skin
, you can treat it effectively without harsh chemicals or high costs. Just take a look around your home and start gathering the supplies you need to treat your dry skin
the natural way.
And remember it is always best to consult a professional as they can help you tweak your diet or skin care routine. Choose a skin care professional or nutritionist with a proven record of results.
