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
Vitamin C for Smokers
Did you know that people who smoke need more vitamin C? Otherwise they maintain lower blood levels than those who don't smoke. Good sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits and juices, broccoli, dark green leafy vegetables, and tomatoes. Everyone knows that smoking is unhealthy. But if you do smoke, make it your business to consume several vitamin C rich foods every day.
