Dry Skin Care

     Dry skin is characterized by a tight, itchy feeling with flaking skin and a dull complexion. Dry skin care products need to contain moisturizers which will help to deal with these problems. If you have dry skin you should avoid products containing clay, glycerin and alcohol, all of which can be drying.

     People who have dry skin should wash with warm, not hot water. Hot water will only dry skin out more. After cleansing, apply a moisturizer while skin is still damp. This will help to lock moisture in. Moisturizer may need to be reapplied throughout the day.
