Goodbye dry skin
THE skin is the largest organ in the human body and is our first line of defence against the harsh environment. It also maintains the body’s temperature and allows us to feel sensations like heat, cold and touch.
While there is a lot of emphasis given to face care based on numerous media advertisements and products in the market, many of us tend to neglect caring for our skin in other areas of the body like the arms, legs and feet. This can lead to a common skin disorder known as dry skin. Depending on the severity, symptoms include cracked and scaly surfaces as well as itchiness. Other probable causes of dry skin include conditions like eczema, psoriasis, use of strong medication and more frequently, diabetes.
The ideal solution for dry skin is to keep yourself hyrdrated. The question is, how much water should you drink? While the golden rule used to be eight glasses a day, new research reveals that the amount of water required depends on one’s weight. Various formulas are available online to help determine one’s optimum water needs. The rule of thumb is for women to drink at least 2.2 litres and men, 3 litres a day.
Besides water, it is important to moisturise one’s skin daily. This should ideally be practised after bath because this is when the skin absorbs beneficial properties (of the cream or lotion) the best. If your skin is very dry, use a product with urea and/or lanolin. These ingredients help the skin to hold water and seal in the moisture. For diabetics, taking care of your feet by moisturising daily is necessary to prevent ulcers and avoid foot amputations.
