Effective Ways To Moisturise A Dry Skin

Many people struggle with dry, dehydrated skin. Not only does dry skin
tends to be itchy and irritating, it can make wrinkles more noticeable.
So, what can you do to prevent having a dry skin? 

Jumia, the online store you can trust, shares ways you can moisturise a dry skin.

Apply a moisturizer immediately after bathing
Before applying a moisturizer,
be sure to pat your skin with a towel until it’s almost dry instead of
rubbing it. This is because toweling vigorously can irritate a dry and
sensitive skin. Afterward, use moisturizer immediately. This helps plug
the spaces between your skin cells and seal in moisture while your skin
is still damp.
Use the right cleanser
A cleanser is a facial care product that is used to remove makeup, dead
skin cells, oil, and dirt. So, use cleansers that contain ingredients
known to provide that much-needed moisture. Chances are the more gentle
the cleanser, the less harsh on the skin. Look for facial cleansers that
are specially formulated for dry skins. They are richer, creamier and
lotion-like in texture.
Hydrate from the inside
Stay hydrated by drinking good water. Drink water to stay hydrated from
the inside out as this can help skin stay dry. Also, the more water you
drink the more you look younger.
Give yourself a good scrub
A good exfoliation from your face to your toes can really help your skin
retain moisture. Scrubbing helps to remove the dead and dying skin
cells from the surface, revealing new healthy skin cells beneath. It’s
the newer cells closest to the surface that is the moistest.
Don’t let your house get too dry
When you turn on the heater, the air in your home dries out, and the
moisture in your skin evaporates quickly. Use a vaporizer or humidifier
to keep indoor air moisturised to prevent your skin from drying out.
