We have already talked about how hair suffers from the ubiquitous sun and endless styling products and a hair dryer. Ensuring an uninterrupted supply of moisture is also necessary for the skin.
Remember to exfoliate
It is imperative to free the top layer of the skin from dead cells. This ensures deep penetration of the active ingredients. Chemical peels with alpha hydroxy acids (ANA) work well. The ideal scheme looks like this: peeling - moisturizing mask - moisturizing cream. And so once a week.
Use a moisturizing lotion
It is better not to wipe your face with it, but before using the cream, apply it on your palms and press it to your cheeks, forehead, chin and neck. After one or two minutes, you can connect heavy artillery. Lotions act as conductors and traps for moisture, providing truly long-lasting hydration. Look for them in the ranks of Japanese cosmetics, they are traditionally considered strong players in Asia.
Dry air around you can nullify all your efforts. If your home or office does not have a humidifier, keep thermal water close at hand. It doesn't matter which spray you prefer. Just make sure that the drops do not dry out on your face. After about a minute, you must definitely get them wet with a napkin, otherwise they will do the opposite - they will begin to draw moisture from the skin.
In the evening, pamper yourself with Evening Primrose Oil, which contains the essential Omega 6 fatty acid, which quickly restores the lipid barrier. One milligram a day is enough to keep in good shape. And there is no need to apply it all over the face: only around the lips and on especially "dry" areas.
Drink fish oil
Omega 3 and Omega 6 form compositions that retain moisture in the skin. In addition, there will be benefits for overall health too. For those who cannot tolerate fish in any form, Omega 3-6-9 vegetarian capsules have appeared in pharmacies.
