Dry skin can be frustrating but there are some ways you could unknowingly be making it more difficult to manage. To help determine which skin-care habits could be making your dry skin.

Here are some things they recommend you avoid doing if your skin is feeling especially dry. 

Dont wash your face too often

Even just washing your face with water can dry out your skin. Wash morning and evening with a gentle face wash that cleanses but doesn’t strip the skin of oil. Before activities, use a makeup remover wipe instead of washing.

Avoid over-exfoliating

Exfoliants can damage your skin barrier and make your skin even drier. A damaged skin barrier can also create more opportunities for allergens, irritants, and pathogens to gain entry into your skin. Although exfoliating can be important it’s important to not overdo it. You should exfoliate only once or twice a week.

Don’t apply moisturizer to your skin without dampening your skin first

Choose a lactic acid cleanser over a glycolic acid cleanser or even better a naturally derived skin cleanser is a better option. Glycolic acid is a strong exfoliant but it can make dry skin even worse. Using lactic acid cleansers gently exfoliate your skin while also hydrating it.

Don’t skip out on applying moisturizer

Don’t leave your house without applying a rich moisturizer. Using one is naturally derived and contains antioxidants to nourish the skin naturally as well as a Squalane. Applying them is important because they rehydrate the top layer of skin cells and help seal in the moisture.

People with dry skin should also avoid excessive use of diuretics, [like] alcohol and caffeine, and watch your salt intake. On the other hand, she said it’s important to make sure you’re consuming a sufficient amount of vitamin C (which is important for collagen production), protein, and healthy fats (such as those found in avocados).

Don’t rule out toner

Just because you have dry skin you should opt for a toners/mist that contains soothing and hydrating ingredients. Rose water by itself is not going to do wonders for your skin, but in combination with other moisturizing ingredients, it helps keep your skin feeling hydrated for longer while also improving its texture.

Don’t use heavily scented products

Avoid using heavily scented lotions or creams if you have dry skin. fragrances and scents may further irritate your skin so you may want to opt for unscented or lightly scented products instead, and products naturally scented.

If possible, avoid triggers that can cause an eczema flare-up — especially if your skin is already dry

Although not all cases of dry skin are eczema, if you’re prone to eczema flare-ups, you may want to figure out what triggers them. Some known eczema triggers include things like pet dander or pollen. These triggers can vary from person to person. And once you’ve begun figuring out what yours are, you should avoid them when possible. This is especially important during times when you’re already dealing with dry skin because you become more likely to have an eczema flare-up or come in contact with the allergen exposures that can cause them.
