Dry skin is the absolute worst! It’s flaky, it demands constant moisture and feels uncomfortable at moments when you are just trying to get on with life. Your skin shouldn’t constantly feel like an itchy sweater. Not to mention the cracking, tightness, inflammation and the lack of radiance. We empathize. You shouldn’t have to live like this. Don’t let dry skin get you down, kick it to the curb with our dry skin regimen.
But first, let’s tackle why your skin is dry…
Why Is My Skin So Dry?
There is an ocean of reasons (no pun intended) why your skin might be dry, but we’ve narrowed it down to a few. You could be genetically prone to dry skin (we know the struggle), or maybe winter has been cruel to your poor skin and your moisturizer is a total lightweight. If so, you are going to want to upgrade after you read about our amazing dry skin regimen.
And then there is the big one you might be overlooking: hot water. Sylvia Plath once said, “There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them.” We have found one–dry skin. We hate to be Debbie Downers here, but while a hot bath or shower can do your mental health a whole lot of favors, it is no good for your skin. If you have dry skin, hot water can zap moisture from your skin. So, turn the heat down and we will help get your skin back on a moisturized track. Our 4-step dry skin regimen will have you saying, “What dry skin?”
