Many, if not most, people experience issues with dry skin every once in a while, particularly during the winter. No matter how dry your skin might be, there are several steps that you can take to add moisture to your skin. Here are a few tips that should help you revive your dull skin and achieve an irresistible glow, even in the dead of winter.
Cleanse Your Skin Thoroughly
If you have dull skin, you should ensure that you’re cleansing your skin thoroughly. Cleansing the skin is important to unclog the pores, which will in turn make it easier for the skin to absorb moisture. You should use warm to cool water to wash your face twice a day. After cleansing your face, you should use a soft, clean cloth to pat your face dry.
Exfoliate Your Skin
Exfoliating your skin is also important to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and make room for healthy skin cells. You should use a scrub to gently exfoliate your skin at least a few times a week. You should focus on the t-zone area in particular, which consists of the areas around the forehead and the nose. It is important to be gentle because being too rough can make your skin even more dry.
Steam Your Skin
Every week or so, you should steam your skin to allow the pores to open and soften the skin. Prior to steaming your skin, you should cleanse your skin thoroughly. Otherwise, dirt, oil, makeup, and other debris may enter your pores and cause pimples. Not only does steaming the skin make it easier to extract whiteheads, blackheads, and other impurities, but it also makes it easier to moisturize your skin. After you steam the skin, any mask or serum you apply will be more easily absorbed. Steaming will also boost blood flow circulation to the skin, promoting healthier skin. If you suffer from both acne and dry skin, you should consider using a charcoal mask, which will help extract excess oil and impurities without further drying your skin.
Moisturize Your Skin
You should use a moisturizer every day to hydrate your skin. Consider testing multiple moisturizers to determine which product works best on your skin. After applying moisturizer, you should apply sunscreen to protect your skin from UV ray damage, which can cause dry skin.
As you can see, there are many things you can do to achieve an irresistible glow. For more information about how to revive your dull skin and achieve beautiful skin, don’t hesitate to contact us.
