- Start by switching your facial cleanser to one that is designed for sensitive skin. You want to avoid over exfoliating as it can cause your skin to become dry, red and flaky.
- Hot showers and baths will open the pores causing moisture in the skin to evaporate. Opt for luke warm water instead. When you dry off, use patting motions rather than rubbing the towel across your skin. Apply a moisturizing lotion immediately to help seal in the moisture and keep your skin soft and supple.
- To perk up dry, tired skin, use a hydrating facial mask infused with vitamins. This will help restore the natural glow of the skin.
- Feed your skin with antioxidants and Omega-3 fats. Choose foods with nutrients that will help your skin retain its natural oils.
- Be sure you are getting the required doses of vitamins A, B and C. Vitamin A helps the skin stay strong and creates new layers. Vitamin B enhances metabolism and Vitamin C is necessary for rebuilding the skin's collagen.
- Always use a sunscreen no matter what time of year it is. SPF will protect the skin from the sun's damaging rays even when it's not shining bright. Your moisturizer or foundation may contain SPF ingredients. If not, mix sunscreen with your products or apply in layers.
- Your lips lack the natural oils found in skin and can become dried and chapped. Saliva will dehydrate your lips so try not to lick them. Choose a lip balm or salve with Shea butter or jojoba oil. Avoid balms with peppermint or menthol as these will dry out your lips.
