Tips for Dry Skin

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

I know how relaxing a good long 30min shower can feel after a long day, but having your skin in the water for that long really isnt good for your skin. Try and limit your showers to 5-10 min when you do take them.

Don’t use hot water:

As i said before, theres nothing better than jumping into a nice hot shower, but once again it wont be helping your dry skin AT ALL. Try using warm water instead of scorching hot water.

Go gentle and fragrance free:

Its no myth that soaps and washes with fragrance in them will dry out any skin type. I always used soaps that had no fragrance in them such as soaps with shea butter in them really do help.

Dry your skin by dabbing:

When getting out of the shower most people are very rough with their skin when using a towel. This roughness will only make your dry skin worse. Be sure that your extremly gentle when drying your skin, make sure you gentle dab your skin dry.

Apply moisturizer immediatly after shower:

This will trap moisture and help with your dry skin. Also seeing a doctor about your dry skin. They will be able to give you special creams that will work to improve your skin.

Wear gloves:

By wearing gloves, espically during the fall and winter, you reduce the risk of your skin getting all raw. I also wear gloves while doing the dishes, which helps because then my hands are not getting all wet.

Laundry:

When you go shopping for laundry detergent make sure you get gentle detergent and fragrance free ones. I find that my dry and irritated skin gets worse if i use detergents that arent gentle or have a lot of fragrance in them.

Add moisture in the air:

I highly recommend purchasing a humidifier. This aids moisture into your room and all around your house so that your skin doesnt dry out as easily.

Thats it for todays blog!

Tips for Oily Skin

Hello my lovlies! Today i will be doing another beauty blog…DUH! It would be weird if i wasnt, after all our blog name is BEAUTYholics.

After writing me Acne skincare routine blog, i began to realize that when i comes to your skin, people suffer many problems. Some people get really bad acne, others get really bad dry skin, and then others get really bad oily skin. So i thought, since throughout my short life, i have suffered both oily and dry skin, i would do a blog on what i did to get rid/help my oily skin. Hopefully this will help those of you out there suffering oily skin.

  1. Get a face wash that it suited toward oily skin, and wash you face twice a day.

    I started noticing that i was getting oily skin shortly after i started my first period in the 6th grade. I was terrified by how oily my skin looked, and how no matter what i did, i couldn’t seem to make it go away. That was until i started using Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser. I highly recommend this, and if you have sensitive skin like i do this is still a good cleanser so dont be afraid! I would wash my face once in the morning, make sure that you PAT your face dry, instead of rubbing it. Then i would wash my face for the second time before bed.

  2. Wash your bed sheets and pillows once a week.

    Along with washing your face twice a day, i also would wash my pillows and bedding once a week. I personally believe that doing this really helped my acne and my oily skin

  3. Start an oil free diet.

    I know its hard to pass up a french fry here and there, but exchanging that french fry for some veggies, and that burger for more lean meat will really improve your oily skin. When i cut back on the more processed food, i could see a noticable change in the oily-ness of my skin within a week. Cutting back on surgary drinks will also help reduce skin oil.

  4. Exfoliate Exfoliate Exfoliate!

    Exfoliating your skin twice a week will reduce oily skin like you wouldnt believe. By exfoliating your skin, youre stripping yourself of dead skin cells, which helps reduce skin oils. Just be careful not to over exfoliate, that will only make the oily-ness wose.

  5. Exercise daily

    By exercising daily you are increasing your blood flow which opens up your clogged pores as well as nourishes your skin.

  6. WATER WATER WATER.

Drink lots and lots of water. Water is such an amazing thing and will help you so so so so much. I cannot stress how important water is. I would reccomned drinking 5-6 glasses of water a day.

Thats it for todays blog. Comment down below how you got rid of your oily skin, or if you plan on doing this to get rid of oily skin!
