Avoid Hot Baths

Hot showers and baths can dehydrate your skin as it encourages water to flow out and evaporate from your skin. Instead, try bathing in lukewarm water and use a hyaluronic acid-based soap to retain moisture.

Avoid Harsh Cleansers

Harsh cleansers can strip off the natural oil and moisturiser from your skin leading to cracks on the top layer of your skin. Look for gentle cleansers to help avoid skin drying, redness and itchiness.

Stop Over Cleansing

Over-cleansing (washing >2x/day) strips your skin of natural moisture and microbiomes. If necessary, use a light moisturiser after cleansing to retain hydration.

Pat Dry Your Skin

After cleansing, instead of completely drying your skin, you can gently pat dry to leave your skin damp as you apply moisturiser. This can help your skin ‘drink’ the water after you apply your moisturiser.

Apply Sunscreen

Applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen throughout the year can help retain moisture and protect against damage from UV radiation. Buy a sunscreen with ingredients like zinc oxide or titanium oxide.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a good moisturiser. Its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties can soothe your skin barrier and keep your skin hydrated and naturally glowing.

Quit Smoking

Smoking or second-hand smoke is dangerous for your skin as you are coating your skin with harmful toxins. This can increase oxidative stress and promote premature skin ageing. Hence consider quitting smoking for better skin health.
