Did you know that hot water actually dries out your skin? If you have dry skin, it’s important to limit your baths and showers to under 10 minutes. Rather than soaking in hot water for ages, go for a quick clean-up with lukewarm water.

Avoid Soap

Bar soap isn’t meant for dry skin. Opt for a hydrating formula that will nourish your skin rather than strip away your body’s natural oils. Steer clear of anything in a bar shape and look for “soap-free” labels.

Use A Cream Designed for Dry Skin

Forget about watery body lotions! While they might have great scents, they just aren’t enough for dry skin. Look for ultra hydrating body creams that have effective ingredients like shea butter, olive oil, glycerin, and jojoba oil. And don’t forget your face! Even the most hydrating of facial cleanser isn’t enough for dry skin. Look for creams with antioxidants alpha lipoic acid and soy isoflavones like glo-therapeutics Conditioning Hydration Cream. Need some extra help? Upgrade to glo-therapeutics Barrier Balm. Rich in vitamins A C and E, this stuff with give you quenched, baby soft skin in a flash.

Moisturise ASAP

Timing is important! As soon as you get out of the shower, apply a thick moisturiser to trap moisture in your skin. Just blot the water off your skin with a soft towel then hydrate from head to toe for a hydration that will last.

Carry the Essentials

Keep a good quality hand cream in your bag at all times. Dealing with patches of dry skin on your face? Keep a hydrating mist like glo-minerals Revive Hydration Mist on hand all the time to prevent your face from getting dried out.

Get a Humidifier

Want a truly effortless fix? Get a humidifier! Plug it in before bed and you can wake up with lush, hydrated skin every single day.

See a Dermatologist

If you’ve made changes to your routine but aren’t seeing any improvements, chat with your doctor. Dry skin can be a symptom of a skin condition. Your dermatologist can give you an effective remedy that will make your skin feel great again.
