Say Goodbye to Dry Skin!

Say goodbye to dry skin with our comprehensive guide to understanding and treating this all-too-common condition. Dry skin affects millions worldwide, leaving it feeling tight, rough, and flaky. But fret not, we've got you covered!

First things first, let's dive into the causes of dry skin. From environmental factors like cold, dry air and low humidity to age, genetics, and even certain medical conditions, there are several factors at play here. Now, let's talk symptoms. Dry skin can manifest in different ways, but common signs include tightness, roughness, flakiness, and even itching and redness. Not the most pleasant experience, right?

But fear not, there are some marvelous treatments to help you find relief. 

Moisturising is key, so investing in a high-quality body cream or moisturiser is a must. Our personal favourite is the Blue Tansy & Vitamin E Body Cream - it's packed with skin loving nutrients to soothe and heal your skin.

Another game-changer is body oil. Applying it right after a shower while your skin is still damp and warm allows the oil to penetrate deeply and provide extra hydration. The Blue Tansy & Mandarin Body Oil is a fantastic choice for a nourishing full-body treatment.

Of course, prevention is just as important as treatment. 

Avoiding harsh soaps and detergents: This is a given. When harsh chemicals and alcohol are used on the skin it strips it of its moisture and causes skin to dry out, tighten and become extremely uncomfortable (remember all of the hand sanitising through the Covid pandemic!). Using gentle, fragrance-free soaps, bath and shower oils and natural alternatives can help to prevent dryness. We recommend Blue Tansy & Jojoba Baby Bath and Massage Oil. It’s not just for bub, it is so loved by those of all ages because it is super effective, smells amazing and is extremely calming. Hello warm bath here I come!

Don't forget the power of hydration from within - drink plenty of water to keep your skin nourished from the inside out.

And as tempting as it may be, try to steer clear of hot showers and baths. When you overheat your skin, your natural oils become compromised. Taking hot showers and baths can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness. 

By following these tips, you can keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and free from dryness. However, if your dry skin persists despite over-the-counter treatments, make sure to seek professional help.

So don't let dry skin get the best of you. Take charge today and say hello to a healthier, more radiant complexion.
