Rough, dry and aged skin … Any woman’s nightmare.
In most cases, dry skin responds well to lifestyle measures, such as using moisturisers and avoiding hot bathing and showering for a long time. If you have dehydrated and flaky skin, your dermatologist will likely recommend using a hydrating cream that contains lactic acid or lactic acid and urea.
Steps to follow to hydrate your skin
Keeping your face clean
Exposure to the sun, wind and pollution causes the pores to close. Dip a cotton ball in milk or almond oil, and rub it over your face to remove impurities.
Drinking lots of water
Eight glasses of water during the day is the minimum recommended to oxygenate and cleanse the skin.
The amount of makeup you wear
During the day, try to wear very light makeup. Save foundations and shadows for the night because cosmetics contain strong chemicals that dry out the skin and lead to allergies. Never go to bed without removing your makeup.
To avoid that the skin becomes greasy, it is better to forget about eating candies, fried foods, burgers and junk food in general. This will prevent the appearance of pimples and blemishes. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables will nourish the skin for their wealth of vitamins.
Using moisturisers and hydrating creams
It is essential to apply cream both for the day and for the night. Use one according to your skin type, and remember that the one you apply before sleeping is different from the one you use during the day.
