What causes dry, sensitive skin?
Extreme temperatures, chores, stress, your skin type and aging are all factors that can cause dry skin. Hot water is a common culprit, as it can strip away the natural oils your skin needs to stay hydrated and healthy, causing dry, sensitive skin. The good news? When we understand what’s triggering dry skin, it’s usually simple to fix.
How to get rid of dry skin
Everyone loves a warm shower, but your skin doesn’t love extreme temperatures. If you’ve got dry skin, try turning the temperature down a notch, limit your bath or shower time and switch off the central heating or air-conditioning when you can. Avoiding harsh products and switching to mild, pH-balanced products will also help to fix dry skin. Locking in moisture is also key – our Deep Moisture Body Wash nourishes your skin with a creamy formula so you can start moisturizing in the shower. Follow up with a rich, nourishing body cream to really get your skin glowing.
How to help dry hands
If you’re thinking, “why are my hands so dry?” remember to protect them with gloves and treat them to some moisturizing hand cream throughout the day and before you go to bed (this one is seriously nourishing).
