How to Manage Dry Skin - September 2019

By OK In Health's Articles

Did you know that the most common cause of itching is dry skin?
Here are some ways to deal with this condition:
  • Minimize hot showers and baths - hot water depletes natural oils in your skin so opt for warm water and spend no longer than 10 minutes bathing.
  • Wash gently - avoid aggressive scrubbing of the skin,  and do not use antibacterial, perfumed or deodorant soaps.
  • Pat skin dry - leave your skin moist by patting or blotting it with a towel, as opposed to rubbing your skin dry.
  • Moisturize after bathing - look for products containing natural ingredients with petrolatum but products such as shea butter.
  • Use a humidifier - if the air is dry, such as wintertime in cold climates, consider the use of a humidifier or buy a spray bottle and mist the air.
  • Protect yourself from the elements - cover exposed skin in winter and minimize sun exposure.

Wellness Tip
Exercising for a Better Mood
If you're feeling down, consider adding exercise to your to-do list. Research shows that exercise has the ability to improve mood and reduce depression. Even if you are seriously depressed, exercise can still be one of several interventions recommended by your physician or mental health professional. Exercise is not a cure all, but it releases endorphins, often creates a sense of accomplishment, and thus improves well-being.
