In “How To Fight Your Dry Skin & Chapped Lips This Season,” Dr. Joel Schlessinger shares that dryness occurs because of loss of moisture and, once the skin is damaged from the dryness, it’s harder than ever to retain natural moisture.

So, where do you start? Tips include:

  • Avoid hot water
  • Minimize exposure to water
  • Towel dry; don’t rub the skin
  • Drink water
  • Avoid caffeine

How big is the problem of dry skin in the United States? According to an article, “What’s Causing Your Dry Skin? Check these 11 common causes of dry skin,” found on WebMD.com, “There are probably close to 100 million dried out, itchy people in the country right now.” This article also shares other common reasons for dry skin to occur.

To fight dry skin, hydrate with a moisturizer chosen by the doctor and available at LovelySkin.com.

 

EltaMD Lotion - 8 oz

When your face is appropriately moisturized, your complexion is brighter and more youthful. So, for healthy looking skin, be sure to moisturize at least once a day, if not twice, using a product that’s right for your skin type. Also consider your skin’s tone when choosing a moisturizer; products come in different tints to bring out the most luminous look for you.

One of the doctor’s favorite moisturizers to soothe dry itchy skin is EltaMD Lotion. This product is non-comedogenic (does not block/clog up pores), and sensitivity- and fragrance-free.
