Get Rid of Dry Skin For Good!

July 21, 2014

Dry, scaly skin.  At some point, we’ve all suffered from having skin that feels uncomfortably tight, itchy or stretched-out.

Dry skin is a common condition when the skin is unable to retains its moisture or is having low levels of sebum production.  And while we often associate dry skin with harsh winter weather, there are many causes and triggers.  Anything from sun damage to an unhealthy diet can create the perfect storm for drying out our skin.

Fortunately, there are ways to avoid this problem. By following these four simple steps, you could minimize your chances of feeling and looking like a desert lizard.

Minimize Your Bath Time

Rub-a-dub-dub, dry skin from the tub.  Everybody likes feeling clean after a nice hot bath or shower.  Indeed, a nice warm bath is often the perfect way to start the day or to take a load off after a long day at work.  But did you know that too many showers or bathing too long is actually harmful for your skin?

Excessive showering exposes your skin to hot water that strips your skin’s oil barrier in no time.  Long, hot showers reduce the oils and lipids in your skin that act as a barrier to seal in moisture.

To fight against bath-time dryness, take shorter showers ─ less than 10 minutes ─ and use lukewarm to warm water instead of hot, steaming water.

Apply Aloe Vera

Aside from being useful in treating wounds and burns, minor skin infections and even diabetes, aloe vera has been clinically-proven to have moisturizing properties to treat skin dryness.  Aloe vera is a succulent plant that has been used for over 5,000 years for many civilizations.  It can be found as an ingredient in various lotions, creams and skincare serums.

You can also grow your own aloe vera as a houseplant.  To use the gel directly from the plant, simply break off a leaf.  You can squeeze a small amount of gel from the broken end and apply it directly to your dry skin.  The gel does not go bad, so you can keep the unused part of the leaf around for future needs.  Women, in particular, can apply aloe vera gel on the skin prior to applying makeup to help prevent skin dryness.  Men can use aloe vera as an aftershave to treat small cuts after shaving.

Use the ProSonic GLOW

The ProSonic GLOW is the newest in sonic and pulsating technology to help smooth out your skin’s texture and rejuvenate the skin.  But did you know that the ProSonic GLOW is also effective in treating dry, scaly skin?

The ProSonic GLOW comes specially-equipped with a pumice brush head that targets dry skin.  The pumice stone is an exfoliating rock that is formed when hot lava mixes with water.  The pumice stone has been used for centuries as a beauty product and the ancient Greeks were known to use the stone to remove body hair.

The pumice brush-head is abrasive enough to remove hard calluses but mild enough to flake away rough, dry skin.  By simply applying the ProSonic’s pumice brush-head over dry skin, you can eliminate dry spots all over your body.

Supplement your skin with Vitamin E

Oatmeal might be the perfect, quick morning breakfast, but did you know that a special form of oatmeal can be used for your dry skin, too?  Colloidal oatmeal is a very fine form of oatmeal that is ground into a fine powder.  Colloidal oatmeal is most commonly added to bathwater where it creates a milky, cream-like texture.  When you get into the tub, the colloidal oatmeal feels silky and soothing, helping coat, moisturize and protect dry, itchy skin ─ all at a very low cost!

By using these simple, easy-to-remember you could be saving your skin from a world of dryness.
