3 Tips for Dealing with Dry Skin

Skin is often flaky and cracked during the winter season, leading to excessive itching and bleeding. Humid air and heaters further exacerbate dry skin.

Dry skin is also prone to wrinkles and age lines, which is why we’ve rounded up some tips from expert dermatologists to help you deal with dry skin.

1. Showers for Dry Skin

To help soothe dry skin, keep your skin moisturized with showers. Avoid using water that’s too hot, causing the skin to dry up even further. Use a gentle cleanser that is fragrance-free and doesn’t contain harmful chemicals that dehydrate your skin.

Lord Huff & Puff has a range of botanical skincare products that are delicate on the skin, including the Stream2Sea’s Conditioning Shampoo and BodyWash, which has anti-oxidant properties to give you that glowing look.

Moreover, the Noni Body Wash contains natural ingredients that nourish skin. The Dr. C-Lab's Coffee Herbs Hair and Body Wash has anti-inflammatory properties and is perfect for sensitive or acne-prone skin.

2. Apply Moisturizer

After washing, gently blot your body with a soft towel and apply a moisturizer to trap moisture in the skin's superficial layers, allowing the skin cells to remain hydrated.

Ingredients that work best for dry skin include shea butter, hyaluronic acid, lanolin, jojoba oil, and dimethicone.

Our organic skincare products contain all these essential ingredients for dry skin. We stock Amazonian Berry Shea Butter Cream from Organic & Botanic, made from naturally rich shea butter. It contains high Vitamins A, F, and E levels that rejuvenate dry skin, provide immediate relief and restore its healthy glow.

Dr. H Hyaluronic Acid Anti-Ageing Night Moisturizer is also beneficial for dry skin. It offers long-lasting hydration and contains a blend of amino acids that provide nutrients to the skin at night and reduce wrinkles.

3. Avoid Alcohol and Fragrance Products

Skincare products that contain alcohol or are fragrance-laden do more harm than good. They dry out skin quicker and can cause rashes on sensitive skin. Chemicals such as alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) and retinoids are harsh on the skin and strip it of its natural oils, leading to moisture loss and dehydration.

Feel more confident in your skin with Lord Huff & Puff’s organic products, made from natural ingredients that are gentle on dry or sensitive skin.
