Natural Dry Skin Care – 3 Keys to Permanently Moist, Supple Skin

It is not always as easy as it sounds to remedy dry skin. Many topical creams available today can actually do more harm than good due to the drying alcohols or pore clogging synthetic oils they contain.

In this article we’ll look at how you can permanently get rid of this annoying problem by using natural dry skin care.

It is important that any skin care you use on dry skin shouldn’t contain any bad alcohols, like isopropyl, which can only serve to dry the skin out even more. Unfortunately you’ll find isopropyl and other similar alcohols in a myriad of commonly available cosmetic products.

Apart from eliminating the use of products that contain drying alcohols, here are three keys to permanently moist and supple skin with a natural dry skin care regime.

1. Hydrate your body

Stepping away from topical products for a minute, it is very important that you drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated. Cut down on alcohol, coffee and soft drinks as these are all diuretic, meaning they extract natural moisture out of the body and can actually dehydrate you.  

2. Moisturize with natural oils

One of the best aspects of natural dry skin care lies in the use of natural oils and emollients. Where off-the-shelf cosmetics tend to be happy to use synthetic mineral oils, which can clog your pores, natural oils are not only rich in antioxidants and vitamins but also deeply moisturize your skin without clogging the pores.

Great examples of natural oils and emollients include avocado oil, Babassu wax, shea butter and grapeseed oil.

3. Increase hyaluronic acid (HA)

Among other benefits, HA plays a major role in enhancing your skin’s ability to retain moisture. HA occurs naturally in the body, but is broken down by an enzyme called hyaluronidase.

Using a natural dry skin care product that inhibits this enzyme will naturally raise your levels of HA, affording your skin the ability to retain more moisture and actively combat dryness.

Always apply both a day and night cream with the correct moisturizing properties – your skin doesn’t only get dry by day, and at night while you’re resting is the perfect time to aid the skin in its natural recovery process by feeding it with deeply moisturizing natural oils and emollients.
