Dry skin requires most of itself additional nutrition and protection, therefore at least once a week, indulge her with masks. A mask made of sour cream or other dairy products will be good for owners of dry skin. In addition, several times a week you can use vegetable and fruit masks, or fatty oil masks with coconut oil or cocoa butter. The mask with the addition of beeswax is also suitable for dry skin. I offer you some recipes for dry skin masks that can be prepared at home.

If you yourself decided to choose the means, then give preference to soft scrubs, and do not choose peeling means with a high content of acids.
What can and can not dry skin
Dry skin is very fond of rain and fog, and there is nothing strange. During fog and rain, the air is very saturated with moisture, which the skin immediately absorbs. In addition, moisture stimulates the blood circulation of the skin, thereby increasing the flow of nutrients to it. It is very important to include in your diet, foods rich in oils and fats - these are vegetable oils, nuts, fatty dairy products, eggs, fish, meat, butter, cheeses. Omega 3 oil is very fond of dry skin - it increases the elasticity of dry skin, restores and moisturizes it from the inside. It is very much contained in fatty marine fish. At breakfast, for owners of dry skin, it is useful to add a couple of articles to porridge or muesli. spoons of ground flaxseeds.
But what does not like dry skin, so it is a frequent stay in the sauna and swimming in the pool. In such places, dry skin loses its weak protective film and dries even more. But this does not mean that you should forget about the sauna with a swimming pool, just don’t go there too often, and immediately after contact with water, apply a greasy protective cream to your skin or make a moisturizing mask. Also does not like dry skin weather with a hot sun or strong wind.
Secrets of dry skin care
Moisturize dry skin should be immediately after washing or applying a lotion, but never apply a moisturizer to dry skin. When we apply moisturizing cream to wet skin, this allows moisture to linger in the deep layers of the skin, but you should not apply the wet skin, either, since they simply drain. After cleansing your face with tonic, you can immediately begin to moisturize the skin.
In the evening, you can cleanse the skin with oils. For these purposes, you can use baby sunflower oil. In Asia, where women always take care of their skin, it is customary to cleanse the skin with shark or sesame oil - they perfectly remove makeup and nourish the skin.
Do not forget to put on the night moisturizing cream, and for dry skin it is undesirable to use one cream in the afternoon and in the evening, as the night cream should be more bold in its texture.
Do not moisten skin around the eyes, as the skin in this area is different in its texture from the rest of the skin of the face. She is very gentle, and fatty moisturizers can only irritate her. For the skin around the eyes, use special tools for this area.
Take a pause between the application of moisturizer and tonal foundation, at least 10 minutes. Otherwise, haste in makeup will lead to clogged pores.
