How to Combat Dry Itchy Skin

Full Body on WhiteIf you recently have undergone laser hair removal and want to show off your newly hair free skin, but are suffering from the dreaded dry skin, you are not alone. Although winter brings visions of sugar plum fairies, walks in a winter wonder land, and kissing under the mistletoe, winter also brings along dry air that can cause your skin to dry out and become chapped. If you have chronic dry skin, try following these tips in order to get your skin looking and feeling smoother again.

Exfoliate

Using a sugar or salt based exfoliating scrub is a great and natural way to rid your body of dead, dry skin that has built up. Simply apply on your arms, legs, abdomen, and anywhere else you are experiencing dry skin and rub it into your body for at least 30 seconds. Rinse off with warm water and voila! Your skin is now a little bit smoother.

Body Brushing

You brush your hair, you brush your teeth, but did you know that you can also brush your body? By using a specific body brush designed for your skin, you can help to get rid of dry skin and improve overall blood circulation. Simply brush your skin with the brush for 10-15 minutes a day and you will notice a difference in just a few days time.

Moisturize

If you forget to moisturize or are simply too lazy to do so, then you are basically asking for dry, damaged skin. By applying a thick moisturizing body lotion across your body you can help to lock in and seal moisture— helping to clear up your dry, chapped skin.

Nothing is more annoying during the holiday season than having to deal with dry, itchy skin. However, by exfoliating, using a body brush, and moisturizing your skin, you can help to lock in moisture and combat dry skin like never before.
