Remedies for dry skin on the face
Here are some different remedies you can try for treating dry, flaky skin:
Creams, ointments, and moisturizers help improve the natural barrier function of your skin. This promotes retention of water and prevents skin dryness. You can get extra benefit by applying moisturizer before going to bed at night and then washing your face using a gentle cleanser when you wake up in the morning. Choose moisturizers that contain gentle ingredients such as ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and colloidal oatmeal. Some moisturizers contain ingredients that can worsen your dry face.
Dry skin may worsen with exposure to cold and dry weather. Cover your face with a scarf when in cold weather to prevent this. Make sure to avoid scratchy, rough fabrics.
Install a humidifier
The skin on your face can become dry due to low humidity. Installing a humidifier in your house may help add some moisture to indoor air.
