9 Habits That Worsen Dry Skin

start exploring

Not Hydrating Enough

The smoothness of your skin will be restored if you maintain an adequate water intake. The skin's outermost layer is adequately hydrated to deliver nutrients to the skin's cells.

Using Wrong Moisturizer

While moisturizer is commonly used to treat dry skin, using the wrong kind can make your condition even worse. Apply petroleum jelly; it locks in moisture.

Consumption of Alcohol

The drying effects of alcohol can be seen all over the body. Drinking at least one glass of water between alcoholic beverages can help mitigate this effect. 

Taking Hot Showers

Showering or washing your hands and face with extremely hot water might cause you to lose the natural oils that keep your skin soft and supple. Use just lukewarm water for washing. 

Skipping Sunscreen

Applying sunscreen every day will help your skin stay healthy and youthful looking. Even oily skin might feel dry and tight after being exposed to the sun. 

Using Soap

Soap's high pH levels dry out the skin's outer layer and also create inflammation, thus it shouldn't be used on a daily basis. 


Don't go to the tanning salon if you're already experiencing dry skin. Use a sunless tanner if you really need to darken your skin tone.

Exfoliating Excessively

Skipping the scrub could be the answer to your dry skin problems. If you exfoliate too often, you risk irritating and drying out your skin. 

Sleep Deprivation

Skin health & aging can both be negatively affected by a lack of sleep. For most people, seven hours of sleep every night is more than enough time to allow their skin to repair itself.
