Hello beautiful people,
As winter is approaching, so is dry, and itchy skin. Our skin is made up of lipids (fats) that keeps our skin cell bind together. When this protective barrier gets damaged, it creates small, invisible cracks in the skin where irritants can enter easily and moisture will also escape quickly.
A range of variables, including the environment and certain medical conditions, can contribute to dry skin.
But the vast majority of cases can be treated with self-care.
By the way, my name is Riza. I'm from Canada, a certified organic skincare formulator who also happens to have sensitive, itchy, and dry skin.
In dealing with this issue, hydration from the inside out is vital. Drink plenty of water, use warm (not hot) water in the shower and limit bath time, apply lotion or moisturizer while your skin is damp, and most especially, use a humidifier.
Be sure to avoid these things too:
- using a harsh cleanser
- washing too often
- exfoliating too much
- using the wrong moisturizer for your skin type
Just a friendly reminder, hope these help :)
Ask me any questions about dry skin. I'll be glad to answer.
