How to get rid of a dry skin

We can’t deny it: winter and its ailments have arrived and will be here for a while. The temperature drops, the heating goes higher. The air dries out and so does your skin. Here are a few tips on how to rehydrate your skin. 

Recognize a dry skin

Before anything else, you can recognize a dry skin by redness, flakes or chunks. Especially after taking a shower or bath you will notice this. Your skin is weakened, feels like it is going to crack and is in need of extra care. 

First of all avoid long or hot showering or bathing. It sounds contradictory, but too much water is bad for a dry skin. It dries out even more. You can hydrate your skin from the inside. Drink enough water. Or increase the humidity in your home by using a humidifier or hanging moisture trays on your radiator.

Please note that dry skin is not the same as dehydrated skin and therefore requires a different treatment. Discover the difference between dry and dehydrated skin here.

3 Things are important: clean, exfoliate and hydrate

  1. Clean once a day, in the evening before bedtime with a mild lotion that does not foam. An oil-based lotion removes dirt and make-up and is gentle for the skin. Nomige's 2-in-1 cleanser is ideal as the first step in your cleaning routine.

  2. Then exfoliate to remove dead skin cells. Do not use granular scrub but an exfoliating tonic based on fruit acids, salicylic acid or enzymes. A good exfoliation ensures that your skin absorbs a moisturizer and active substances more easily. Nomige's exfoliating tonic is therefore the finishing touch to your cleaning routine.

  3. Moisturize your skin daily with a moisturizing and nourishing face cream. A good moisturizer helps your skin to maintain the moisture balance and support the skin barrier. Moisturize both during the day and night, but make sure that your night cream has a lighter texture so that the active substances can be absorbed well. A lighter texture does not make your skin lazy and puts your skin to work: hydrating from the inside.
