Sometimes, you find yourself looking in the mirror and seeing some patches in your skin that look a little bit dry and then you ask yourself “What is that?” Some people do, but most of the time we are guilty of ignoring those and moving on to other things that make sense.
Well, not to burst anyone’s bubble but all those dry patches that you see popping out in your body should be taken seriously. They can appear in different areas and they come with varying degrees of implications. This article will talk about some of the dry skin patches found in your body and how it can affect your overall well-being:
Dry skin around the nose area has a lot to do with the temperature and weather conditions around you. Our nose contains a bunch of sebaceous glands that produce a substance called sebum which keeps our nose oily. When we are exposed to too much heat or coldness, the production of sebum might be hampered and as a result, our skin dries out. Thus, if possible, just stay indoors as much as you can (most especially during summer season). Double check the skin care products that you use and make sure that it does not contain harsh chemical contents that can cause peeling and dryness as well.
Eyes and Eyebrows
It is not advisable to rub your eyes when you feel a little sleepy because that can lead to the drying of your skin around the eyes. Using too much makeup as well can also lead to dry skin. If you are the type that prefers to use cosmetics, try purchasing those moisturizing properties in order to avoid damaging your skin which then leads to dryness.
One should be very careful when you experience dry skin around the mouth area because it is an indication that you are not hydrated properly. If you have the habit of licking your lips, it is advisable to get rid of that because our saliva can greatly affect the moisture of our mouth.
Always remember to enough drink water on a daily basis — at least 3 liters for men and 2.2 liters for women. Not only it can help moisturize your skin, it can provide a lot of other health benefits as well.
It may not look like it but our cheeks are very prone to skin drying. Similar to our nose, a big factor as to why such happens has something to do with the cosmetic products you use. Therefore, it is advisable to use liquid-based makeup as they are great in maintaining your skin’s moisture to normal levels. Using sunblock every time you go outside can also be of great help to your cheeks and the rest of your face.
