Dry skin is a problem that usually draws intermittent attention—mostly in the cold, winter months when the problem gets intense enough to cause significant discomfort in terms of pain and unsightly appearance. Most people do not even realize that dry skin is a health problem that needs corrective measures both, externally and internally. That means, a change in erroneous dietary patterns and habits is called for if you would like to bid dry skin goodbye.

When you’re searching for quality facial products for dry skin on a budget, the number of choices can be overwhelming. With thousands of brands and products on the market, it can be difficult to assess whether it’s worth investing extra money on a new product, or just sticking with a conventional brand. Spas and skin care centers continue to encourage people to invest in designer skincare products. If this is too far out of your skin care budget, there are still some options available at the local drugstore. Here are some of the best, most affordable facial products for dry skin.

Characteristics of dry skin

• Blotting your face with tissue will reveal no traces of oil on the tissue.
• The skin looks rough and is prone to wrinkles.
• It lacks sebum and moisture and looks fragile.
• It chaps easily.
• Usually feels pinched and tight after being washed with soap or on exposure to the cold.
• It has flaky patches that disappear with the application of a rich moisturizing cream or lotion.
• The pores are usually not visible.


Cause of Dry Skin
There are a variety of factors that contribute to dry skin. These ranges from genetic and hereditary factors that are beyond our control to lack of care and neglect that can be modified to treat the problem.

Skin needs to remain clean for it to be healthy. However, the use of harsh chemicals or rough treatment can cause damage to the superficial layers of the skin. In addition, the high moisture content of skin decreases with increasing age and certain Hormone deficiencies. Dietary inadequacies can further complicate an existing skin problem or can cause dry skin to appear.
Daily care for dry skin.
Dry skin needs intensive and regular, depending on the stage of dryness it is going through. A few steps in caring for dry skin include:


• This becomes an essentially for dry skin, especially in women who use make-up.
• Remnants of make-up that are not washed away by water tend to clog the skin pores further reducing the amount of Sebum available to the skin.
• Mild, cleansing milk, if rubbed into the skin gently and wiped off, can cleanse the skin without excessively drying it.
• Ideally, cleansing should be done twice daily—in the morning, before wearing make-up and at night, just before bedtime.
• Plain lemon can act as a cleanser if rubbed onto the skin once or twice a week and the citric acid present in lime juice can work as natural bleach, making the skin look fairer.
• A cactus-based cleanser is a good option for a regular cleanser as it has the highest moisture retention ability and re hydrates the skin.
• The cleanser should be gently massaged into the skin in upward and outward strokes with special attention to the creases near the nose, eyes, and mouth and should be wiped off with a moist cotton pad to prevent excessive drying.

Should you use soap?

It is advisable that individuals with dry skin avoid soap wherever possible. It would be better to use a face-wash that is specially designed for dry skin as it would prevent drying of the skin. If you still prefer to use bath soap, look for one that has a high total fat content, preferably over 70.

Massaging natural oil into your skin 10–15 min before a bath can also help reduce moisture loss and drying. Tub and bubble baths are best avoided in winter as these sap more moisture and essential oils from your skin. If you know you have a problem with developing dry skin, it is best to stick with a warm shower.
