Dry skin may be uncomfortable, rough and itchy. It may even be hereditary or it may come upon you with aging or medical conditions. But luckily it does usually respond quite quickly to a mindful daily care routine.
Pablo Picasso said “Everything is a miracle. It is a miracle that one does not dissolve in one’s bath like a lump of sugar.”
No more long, hot showers or baths, unfortunately, and no more harsh soaps or deep cleansers. Use only a very gentle gel or mild soap, and then slather on plenty of moisturiser afterwards while your skin is still wet.
“Give your stress wings and let it fly away.”
There are many soothing ingredients to look for in moisturisers, if you give yourself the time to read the labels, such as ceramides, dimethicone, glycerine, hyaluronic acid, lanolin and mineral oil, which is also called petroleum jelly. And you really need to wear generous applications of sunscreen always, whatever the weather. For itching or inflammation, try a hydrocortisone cream, or cool compresses should help. As far as homemade remedies are concerned, you can clean your face with a light olive oil at night, or use sunflower seed oil as a moisturiser, or coconut oil instead of a night cream. Honey is moisturising, healing and anti-inflammatory. Soaking the irritated area in aloe vera gel or petroleum jelly may provide relief. And lip balm is good too.
Joan Rivers said “Diets, like clothes, should be tailored to you.”
As far as diet is concerned, Omega-3 foods and drinking plenty of water — really plenty of water, and sipping it not gulping it down — should help, and eating nuts, avocados, sweet potatoes, oysters and cucumbers are recommended. Perhaps you might stick to wearing natural fibres like cotton and silk rather than synthetics or wool.
Khloe Kardashian said: “All the makeup in the world won’t make a difference without great skincare.”
