If you live in a dry climate area, you probably already know how important skincare for dry climates is. And I want to be clear, we are not talking about summertime skincare, while there are some common tips. This is specifically about very dry climates, such as the desert air of Nevada and Arizona.
Signs of Dry Skin
It is very important to know the signs of dry skin so you can address the problem immediately before you develop a more serious condition. Some of those conditions are:
Protecting Your Skin from Dry Climate
So, if you read our tips for skincare for cold climates, you are going to get a caser of déjà vu when you read our first tip for dry climates. And I will even give you a hint that most times when we talk about skincare, this is going to be atop the list.
Yes, we want you to moisturize, preferably right after you get out of the shower. When you are in a dryer climate, you want to keep as much moisture as you possibly can in your skin, and a good moisturizer will create a barrier for your skin. Let me also stress that you need to check the ingredients to ensure your moisturizer does contain harmful chemicals that hurt your skin more than help.
Make it a habit of drinking at least eight glasses of water every day, more depending upon your weight. This will help you hydrate your skin from the inside out. Hitting your daily quota of water will go a long way to making sure your skin stays hydrated. If you don’t like drinking plain water, try getting a soda sense to add some carbonation and infuse it with fresh fruit.
I also like the trick of filling up bottles with water to meet your daily quota (I fill up four quart bottles every day). That way, you know that every one of those bottles needs to be emptied by the time you go to bed. One final tip is to bring a bottle of water to bed with you and if you wake up in the middle of the night, take a few sips to get a head start on your hydration.
