Tips for Soothing Dry Skin

Your skin is dry. It may be itchy. It may sting. It’s uncomfortable. And it may look dull, too. What is going on? “This usually is associated with disruption of the skin barrier, which means cracks between skin cells, loss of hydration, and in severe cases, inflammation of the skin,” he says.

The layer of skin responsible for making oil may be parched for a variety of reasons. That includes genes; a cold, dry climate over cleansing, or using harsh skin-care ingredients. Some of those things are easier to address than others. So, while you’re not going to do a thing about your DNA, you can tweak your skin-care routine and practice healthy lifestyle habits for well-nourished skin.

Tips for Soothing Dry Skin

What causes Dry Skin in the Summer?

Dry skin can crop up during summer due to a myriad of different factors. Exposure to the sun without the proper hydrating SPF application can dry out and leave your skin cracked and irritated. Additionally, chlorine and other chemicals found in pools can strip the skin of its natural oils.

Moisturizer your Skin

If your skin is dry, you should reach for one of the moisturizers in your arsenal of products to nourish your skin and restore comfort. Use a daily moisturizer after cleansing or spending long hours in the sun to provide long-lasting hydration.

Cleanse with Micellar Water

Have a summer vacation planned? Bring a travel-friendly facial cleanser, like micellar water, with you. Micellar water is a no-rinse cleansing option meaning you don’t need to be near a sink to use it. Micellar water is powered by tiny micelles oil molecules that act as a magnet to lift dirt, oil, and makeup up and away from the skin.

Time Spent in Air Conditioning

If you think heaters are the only artificial air source that can visibly dry out your skin, think again. Air conditioners can suck the moisture and humidity out of the air, which may lead to dry-looking skin in summer. If you can’t avoid them, just make sure to keep your skin moisturized before and after coming into contact with them.

Embrace Face Mists

Moisturizers and face masks are great for adding moisture to the skin’s surface, but have you ever tried incorporating a hydrating facial mist into your daily routine? Many people dismiss facial mists as an unnecessary skin-care buy, but they can breathe new life into dry-looking skin.

Make Sun Protection a Priority

Although you should take sun protection measures year-round, it makes sense that it may be top of mind for you during the summer, since you’ll likely be spending more time outside this time of year. Dry skin can crop up during summer due to a myriad of different factors. Exposure to the sun without the proper hydrating SPF application can dry out and leave your skin cracked and irritated.
