Tips to Avoid Dry Skin
There are some things that you can do to help to avoid dry flaky skin.
● Avoid Hot Water
Hot water dries your skin out. Instead, only take warm showers and make sure that you close the door to the bathroom so it will hold the humidity in the room with you.
● Avoid Using Rubbing Alcohol (Except in Hand Sanitizer)
Rubbing Alchohol is extremely drying so you will want to avoid products that include it.
● Invest in a Humidifier
Humidifiers manage the humidity in your home. This helps to make sure that your skin does not dry out. It is also great for your sinuses as well.
Drink plenty of water. This is an easy step that is great for your skin and your whole body overall. You should drink half of your weight in ounces of water a day. So if you weigh 200lbs you should drink 100 oz of water a day.
Never Suffer From Dry Flaky Skin Again
Now that you know all the tips to avoid dry skin, you need to make sure to follow them so you can avoid the headache that comes with it. Make sure to be aware of how hot you are letting the water get next time you jump in the shower or fill your tub. Drink your water! Get a water bottle and keep it with you at all times. If you make a few simple changes, you will have beautiful glowing skiing before you know it.
