It’s very necessary to keep your skin healthy and clean else it may become chalky or flaky in appearance. If ashy skin doesn’t get the proper treatment, it may even get tight and painful with time. Even ignoring a small blackhead can be dangerous because it may enlarge with time and become inseparable. Do you remember the case of old lady who got her nasty and giant blackhead removed after 85 years?
The worst part of having ashy skin apart from the bad appearance is the itchiness. Itching dry skin can cause ruptures which may eventually get inhabited by bacteria and create a much more serious problem. Check out these 10 effective measures recommended by skin specialists for treating ashy skin.
It's because body creams keep the skin moisturized for longer duration of time. Make sure to apply the it twice a day for better results.
Hot water and drying soaps eliminate the natural oils present in your skin. Natural oil is essential for the nourishment of skin. Take bath in lukewarm water with a moisturizing body wash and see the difference.
If you don't get the desired results by body cream, try body oil to get extra humidification. Apply it directly on damp skin after bath to get soft and supple skin.
Scratching makes your skin look uglier thereby exaggerating your problem. Instead, apply moisturizer on your itchy skin whenever you feel like rubbing it.
Exfoliating is the best way to remove the dead cells from your ashy skin. Apply liquid shower gel using a loofah on your flaky skin in circular motions to gently exfoliate the skin.
Hydration is essential for healthy skin. Water eliminates the toxins from your body and provides nutrients to the cells thus preventing dryness of skin.
You should change your products according to the changes in your skin during different season. Use a rich moisturizer during winter season and switch to a moisturizer with SPF in summers.
Choose the right cleanser to moisturize your skin. Opt for milk cleanser or gentle cream instead of heavily-fragranced and chemical ones.
Dry skin may be caused due to frequent use of treatment creams for acne and wrinkles. Certain active ingredients in these treatment products can aggravate dryness in your skin.
Proper balanced diet is essential to provide nutrients and vitamins to the body. Eat fresh fruits and veggies with high-water content such as watermelon, broccoli and tomatoes.
