If you have dry skin then you know how difficult and annoying it can be to treat. You have to be very careful with the skin product you use and how you treat it. But, things could be worse especially if you have very dry skin.
If you have very dry or extremely dry skin then you have a subtype of dry skin that is characterized by tight and sensitive skin. This skin type does not respond well to traditional dry skin care products and if not treated properly, can lead to more serious problems.
By following a good skin care plan, you can learn to live with very dry skin. This plan should include a skin rash rescue plan to help deal with allergic or irritating reactions to different situations and products. Lifestyle changes should be taken as part of your skin rash rescue regimen.
What is the Right Skin Care Routine for Very Dry Skin
Normal dry skin can usually be treated with cream cleansers and creamy moisturizers; however, when treating very dry skin you'll probably have to switch over to oils.
Olive oil is an excellent cleanser for very dry skin. Simply massage a little bit all over your face and place a warm, moist washcloth over it. When the washcloth has cooled off, wipe off the excess oil and apply your usually moisturizing cream.
Rose hip oil can also be used as a moisturizer. It absorbs into the skin very quickly and treats dryness almost instantly. Reapply this product as often as your need to during the day (make sure to use sunblock if you plan on heading outside).
Including a sensitive skin balm in your daily skin routine is a great idea. Look for products that contain aloe vera or licorice root, two ingredients that are known to alleviate irritation.
Changing some of your daily habits can also help reduce irritation and swelling. As a matter of fact, some changes are a fundamental part of treating extremely dry skin. Maintaining bad habits will only counteract the positive effects of your skin care products.
Dietary modifications are a good place to start. Eliminate or moderate the intake of beverages such as caffeine, alcohol and carbonated drinks. All of these products lead to dehydration, which will eventually lead to irritation and rashes.
Other changes you can make to better your skin and lifestyle are: changing synthetic fabrics for natural fibers, using a humidifier, and drinking plenty of water. Consistency is the key in this case. None of these suggestions will work if you do not commit to a long term lifestyle change.
