This may seem self explanatory and a given but so many people don't drink the amount of water that they need to maintain a healthy level of hydration. Our bodies are made up predominately of water. We need to constantly be replenishing that water by consuming an elevated amount per day. Most people should be drinking at least a gallon of water a day. This will undoubtedly help those who deal with dry skin, but also helps other skin issues as it helps to flush out toxins and impurities that often show up on the face.
This is crucial for those who experience dry skin. You need to be moisturizing your skin on a daily basis, at least twice a day. The best type of moisturizers are going to be oils. Olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil and grapeseed oil are great oils for intrinsically dry skin. Don't worry about developing oily skin by using oils as moisturizers. The mineral and healing components of the oils mentioned naturally provide the skin with the type of hydration and moisture that it requires. They won't leave your face greasy. They will simply replenish the absent moisture.
There are so many face masks that you can and should use to help restore your skin to its natural state. Natural ingredients are the best. Avocado, honey, and oatmeal are great things to incorporate into a face mask if you are dealing with dry skin. One of the things that dry skin can contribute to is premature signs of aging. This can show up as fine lines, loose skin and wrinkles. The rich avocado and nourishing honey will give the blanketed moisture that the face so desperately needs.
Limit Over-The-Counter Products
Many people don't realize that their dry skin may be a direct result of the products that they use. We don't just mean products that may be geared more closely to combination or oily skin, this goes for all over the counter products in general. Many of these items have ingredients in them that are toxic. Some have chemicals in them that you not only wouldn't be able to pronounce, but that are also terrible for your skin and contribute to its dry state.
It's so important to listen to your skin and notice what positively or negatively affects it. Natural products are preferred as so many store bought products can reek havoc on the skin and do more damage than good. Drink you water and invest in quality, high grade natural ingredients to help restore your skin's health.
