How Can I Treat Dry Skin?

The easiest way is to keep skin hydrated. Dry skin can occur anywhere on the body and if not managed it can become very painful. Topical creams and treatments will help to add moisture to the skin, but you also need to make sure that your skin retains this moisture. You can do this by using products that restore skin’s protective barrier, and with small lifestyle changes.

For example, avoid showering or bathing in very hot water as this dries out the skin further, exfoliate once a week to remove any dead, dry skin cells and drink plenty of water. You could also take Omega-3 supplements and include more oily fish in your diet.  In terms of skin care products, look out for hydrating ingredients like Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid and Shea Butter.
