If you have dry, itchy skin, you know how annoying it can be. At the same time, scratching your dry itchy skin can feel incredibly good.
It is not much comfort to know that scratching makes you feel good when you see the results from your scratching.
I used to suffer from very dry skin, and it took me awhile to figure out how exactly I could get rid of it. I tried a lot of different dry skin care products, but none of them seemed to work.
That is also the time that I started really thinking about what was causing my dry itchy skin, was there an underlying cause?
Because you see, I was only trying to treat my symptoms, and that pretty much never works for prolonged periods of time, and that is when I came up with these 3 simple dry skin care tips:
1. Natural Food Choices
When I was having my worst bout of dry skin, I was eating a very unhealthy diet consisting of fast food, candy, sodas, cookies, and all those kinds of things. It took me awhile to kick the junk food habit, but once I did that, and I started eating more fruits and vegetables, my skin improved a lot, and so did my health.
I also discovered that climate played a big role on my skin. You see, I live in a pretty cold climate up here in Sweden, and when the winter comes around, the air becomes extremely dry, and this leads to my skin losing its moisture. Believe it or not, this actually took me a year or two to realize, but when I did, I started moisturizing every single day after I took a shower. I made sure to only use the best natural skin care products, and my dry itchy skin has gone.
3. Natural Skin Care Products
The last tip I can give you on eliminating dry itchy skin is to only get completely natural products, because many of today's popular dry skin care products contain a lot of bad ingredients. These ingredients can make your skin dry, irritated, and it can even cause cancer according to recent studies.
These dry skin care tips may seem simple, but I promise you that if you apply them, your dry itchy skin will be healed, just remember to use natural dry skin care products.
