Say Goodbye to Dry Skin
Ladies out there! We hear so many complaints and concerns regarding dry skin and other related skin issues especially after pregnancy. Who wants scaly, itchy skin right? It makes feeding a pain as well. How do we get rid of it without damaging our skin further, though? Here are some quick fixes we recommend to get rid of that pesky, flakey, dry skin, which also address some concerns regarding dry skin removal.
#1 Water Temperature
This may not be as quick as you'd like, but this will definitely help in preventing the same or similar problems from cropping up in the future. With having a bath, make sure that the water isn't too hot. Water at very high temperatures tends to steal the body of its natural oils which are essential in keeping the skin moisturized.
Honey is a great natural moisturizing product. It also has additional beneficial qualities such as being antioxidizing, antimicrobial, and humectant. Apply honey on your skin 10 minutes before your bath and then gently wash it off. This will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth and will reduce the loss of natural body oils.
Olive oil also works as a great natural antioxidant and moisturizer. It helps soothe and get rid of dry skin. One way to get rid of dry skin using olive oil is to massage your body 30-60 minutes before having a bath.
Himalaya FOR MOMS toning massage oil is a product specifically designed to aid postpartum recovery while keeping your skin soft and supple. Massages greatly help in recovering and oil massages help tone muscles.
Soak a washcloth in milk and then keep it on your body for around 10 minutes. Then have a bath and wash it off. Milk has anti-inflammatory properties and also acts as a soothing agent which will help to soothe dry skin. These soothing properties also get rid of itchiness caused due dry skin.
This has properties similar to milk. The lactic acid in yogurt has antibacterial properties which help prevent the itchiness caused by dryness. Rub yogurt into your skin 10 minutes before bathing and then gently wash it off. It should leave your skin feeling cool and soothed.
After you wash your face or just get out of a shower or bath, when drying up, don't rub your skin with the towel. This is harsh for the skin and will also rub off the natural oils present in the skin. Instead, dab at your face and gently move the towel over your body to soak up the water.
In the winter, the air tends to be dry. Alternatively, using a heater could lead to the dry air. Ensure that a humidifier is kept functioning in your room in order to ensure that the dry air doesn't suck the moisture out of your skin.
This is the most basic rule to get rid of dry skin. After every bath, apply a gentle layer of moisturizer on your skin. Use moisturizers which have less chemicals add these are less harsh on your skin. Himalaya FOR MOMS soothing body butter helps to get off dryness and nourishes the skin to make it soft, supple, and glowing, to combat the dryness caused by stretching of the skin during pregnancy.
