With too many roles for woman to juggle in today’s fast paced, high pressured lifestyle, there is very little time for her to pamper herself.


With tension, worries, anxiety and age, the skin become less active leaving it drier, fragile, prone to wrinkle, lines near the eyes and mouth and losing the youthful colour and glow.




Failure of oil glands failing to release enough oils to moisturize and protect the skin results in dry skin. Environmental causes like dry air, harsh wind, hormonal imbalance, usage of aggressive chemicals, cosmetics or excessive bathing with harsh soaps saps the moisture from the skin making it dryer, flakier and chapped during winter


Caring for Dry Skin


- Cleanse and Moisturize: The dry skin should be cleansed with a cold cream and alcohol-free skin fresheners to remove the cream. After cleansing, the skin needs a lubricating emollient or moisturizer when the face is damp after the wash.





 

- Splash your face with cold water or gently wipe the skin with rose water to tone the skin nicely.


- Avoid using highly alkaline soaps and detergents like washing sodas and powders.


- Avoid the sun, harsh winds and hot baths. Use oil-based creams and make-up products only. Use soft towels or wash cloth to avoid irritation to the skin while wiping it.


- Smoking deprives the skin of oxygen and nutrients it needs for good health making the skin dry and leathery.


- Chapped or cracked skin - increase consumption of water. Keep chapped areas well lubricated and protected from the elements using a good nourishing cream or moisturizer.


- Use creamy, mild, pH-balanced products such moisture based cream lotion like pH Balance Rejuvenating Daily Moisturizer for dry skin care.






 

 

A well balanced diet of vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds and nuts provides the body with all the necessary vitamins and minerals needed for healthy skin.

Lessen fried foods, soft drinks, sugar, chocolates, junk foods, alcohol, caffeine and other foods that have diuretic affecting causing the body and skin to lose fluids, vitamins and essential minerals.
