By Shrudi Shyam

Dry skin can be a persistent concern, causing discomfort and affecting our overall appearance. This could happen due to environmental factors, genetics, or lifestyle choices. However, if you want to learn how to get rid of dry skin, you need to understand its causes and symptoms first. In this blog, we will explore the underlying causes, common symptoms, and practical tips to rejuvenate and replenish dry skin. Discover how to deal with dry skin and restore your skin's natural moisture and regain a healthy, radiant complexion.

What is Dry Skin?

Dry skin is a common skin condition characterised by lack of moisture and a damaged skin barrier. It occurs when the skin fails to retain sufficient water content, resulting in a dry, tight, and sometimes itchy sensation on the skin. Dry skin often appears dull, flaky, and rough, and may even develop fine lines or cracks in severe cases. Various factors, such as environmental conditions ageing, harsh cleansing products, and underlying medical conditions, can contribute to dry skin. Adequate hydration, gentle cleansing, and regular moisturising are crucial in restoring the skin's moisture balance and promoting a healthier, smoother, and more supple skin texture.

Causes of Dry Skin

Many factors can contribute to your dry skin condition. Here are some common causes of your dry skin:

1. Environmental Conditions: Low humidity levels, cold weather, excessive sun exposure, and dry air from heaters or air conditioning can deplete the skin's moisture.

2. Ageing: As we age, the production of natural oils and moisture by the skin decreases, making it more prone to dryness.

3. Harsh Soaps and Cleansers: Using harsh soaps or cleansers with alcohol can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness.

4. Contact Dermatitis: Contact with certain substances such as makeup products, medications, detergents, and metals like nickel in jewellery can cause allergic reactions on the skin, resulting in dryness, itching, redness, and rashes.

5. Hot Showers or Baths: Prolonged exposure to hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils, causing dryness.

6. Medical Conditions: If you have medical conditions like eczema, psoriasis, or thyroid disorders, this can lead to the development of dry skin.

Symptoms of Dry Skin

To learn how to fix dry skin, you must first learn to recognise the symptoms of dry skin. Some common symptoms of dry skin include:

1. Tightness of the skin and a feeling of discomfort.

2. Flaky or scaly patches on the skin's surface.

3. Itching or irritation on the skin.

4. Redness or inflammation that can make your skin sensitive.

5. Fine lines or cracks in severe cases.

How to Get Rid of Dry Skin?

Now that you know about the causes and symptoms of dry skin, all you need is to understand how to treat dry skin with a few simple measures:

1. Gently Cleanse: Use a mild, hydrating cleanser to wash your face such as POND'S Bright Beauty Foaming Pump Facewash. Avoid harsh cleansers as they can strip away the natural oils of your skin.

2. Exfoliate: Regularly exfoliate your skin using a gentle scrub or exfoliating brush to remove dead skin cells and promote cell renewal. You can use POND'S Bright Beauty Foaming Brush Facewash as this will allow better absorption of moisturisers.

3. Moisturise Regularly: Apply a nourishing moisturiser such as POND'S Super Light Moisturiser with hyaluronic acid or POND'S Fresh Glow Light Moisturiser with vitamin E and glycerine immediately after cleansing to lock in moisture.

3. Protect Your Skin: Shield your skin from harsh weather conditions by wearing protective clothing, including hats, scarves, and gloves. Additionally, always use sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and PA++ such as POND'S Serum Boost Sunscreen Cream to protect your skin from UV damage.

4. Humidify Your Environment: Use a humidifier to add moisture to the air in your home or office, especially during dry seasons.

5. Stay Hydrated: Drink an adequate amount of water daily to keep your body hydrated, which in turn benefits your skin.

6. Avoid Irritants: Minimise your skin's exposure to harsh chemicals, fragrances, and allergens that can trigger dryness or irritation.

7. Healthy Diet: Follow a balanced diet rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals to nourish your skin from within. Include foods like avocados, fatty fish, nuts, and leafy greens.

7. Limit Hot Showers and Baths: Prolonged exposure to hot water can remove the skin's natural oils, contributing to dryness. Opt for warm or cold showers and limit the duration.

8. Overnight Moisturising: Apply a thicker moisturiser such as POND'S Gold Beauty Night Cream with French gold extracts, 24K pure gold and hyaluronic acid before bed to provide intensive hydration while you sleep. You can also use POND'S Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Night Cream to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles while moisturising your skin overnight.
