1) Apply A Gentle, Fragrance-Free Moisturizer Immediately After Washing.
No matter how quickly or thoroughly you shower with warm water, some oils will inevitably fall away as you wash. Replacing that lost oil with a hypoallergenic, aroma free cream after you dry off is the perfect way to combat this loss of lipids.
Find lotions with olive, coconut or jojoba oils as they make excellent moisturizers. Shea margarine products may also make excellent solutions.
Any products designed specifically to cater for sensitive skin or are hypoallergenic are more gentle on your skin.
Make sure that any creams or lotions you use do not contain alcohol or fragrances.
Finding the appropriate cream may require some trial and error, as each person’s needs differ. If the results from one product don’t suit your tastes, don’t waste any time switching up and exploring what may provide more satisfactory results.
2) Dab Jojoba Or Coconut Oil Onto Rough Patches To Lock In Moisture
These two soothing creams are everyday products designed to calm skin. Find 100% unadulterated versions on the web or at drug stores and wellbeing stores; then apply some onto your hands, rub together, and apply to skin to reduce dryness.
If one or both items is too slippery or dangerous, try diluting them a little with water to try and reduce their effectiveness.
Other plant oils may serve as creams as well, although their effectiveness has less evidence. Olive oil is widely accepted. Nut oils like walnut or almond may also work, although those allergic to nuts should avoid using it.
3) Apply Aloe Vera Gel To Dry Skin Patches
Aloe vera has long been recognized for its therapeutic effects on dry or damaged skin. If you notice any dry patches on your body, dab some undiluted aloe gel on them to restore moisture and help with recovery.
Grow an aloe plant at home and extract its oil directly from it for use directly.
