Following the same skin care routine that worked so well in our youth can take a toll on aging skin — especially when the humidity drops. Mature skin is thinner and drier. Without a change in skin care, dry air can make fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable. It can make skin flake, crack, and even bleed. To help alleviate these unwanted effects, dermatologists recommend:
  1. Bathe daily. A daily bath or shower can add much-needed moisture to the skin. To hydrate the skin with a daily bath or shower, follow these guidelines:
  • Keep it short. A 5- to 10-minute bath or shower adds moisture. Spend more time in the water and the skin begins to dry.
  • Use warm, not hot, water. Hot water removes natural oils from the skin more quickly than warm water. The more natural oils removed, the drier the skin becomes.
  • Close the bathroom doorThis keeps the much-needed humidity in the room.
  • Use a mild cleanser. Deodorant bars, fragrance in soaps, and products containing alcohol strip natural oils from the skin, which dries the skin. Look for a natural, mild, fragrance-free cleanser that moisturizes.
  • Gently pat the skin dry. Gently blotting the skin helps retain moisture and is less irritating to dry, sensitive skin.
  • Apply serum and moisturizer within 3 minutes of getting out of the bath or shower. Contrary to popular belief, serum and moisturizer does not add moisture to the skin. Moisturizer traps existing water in the skin, preventing the water from evaporating. To trap water from a bath or shower in the skin, serum and moisturizer must be applied within 3 minutes of bathing. Applied regularly, this helps decrease dryness and itching. We recommend paraben-free alcohol-free Joyal Beauty face serums to use within 3 minutes after cleansing.   
2. Moisturize, moisturize, moisture. Dry skin needs moisture. Applying serum and moisturizer within 3 minutes of bathing seals in much-needed water. If skin is noticeably dry and uncomfortable, moisturizing more frequently throughout the day can help the skin heal. Consistent use of serum and moisturizer will help prevent dry skin from returning.
3. Select serums and moisturizers best suited to relieve dry skin. Ointments and creams tend to be more effective than lotions. Creams and ointments also usually less irritating to dry, sensitive skin. And serum is the most effective intensive treat for your dry skin. Joyal Beauty serums are the best natural organic serums in the market. 
Serum and Moisturizer does not need to be expensive to be effective. Remember to look at the ingredients not the price. Many big brands at expensive price actually have many harmful chemicals such as parabens and phthalates. When selecting a serum and moisturizer to soothe dry skin, look for products that contain lactic acid or hyaluronic acid. These help alleviate even severe dryness. Hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the skin and diminishes with age, can help the skin hold water. Glycerin help draw water to the skin and keep it there. 
4. Check the ingredients on anti-aging products. Some anti-aging products contain retinoids or an alpha-hydroxy acid, which can irritate dry, itchy skin. Switching to a more natural and healthy moisturizing formula such as Joyal Beauty serums can bring relief.
5. Read the ingredients on other skin care products. Using mild, unscented skin care products can help reduce irritation and make skin feel more comfortable. Deodorant soaps, alcohol-based toners, and products that contain fragrance can irritate dry, sensitive skin. Some people with mature skin find using mild, unscented products year round helps their skin feel better. Fox example, Joyal Beauty anti-aging serums line, a leading organic skincare brand, has no alcohol, no fragrance, no harmful chemicals, thus suitable for all skin types and even the most sensitive skin. 
6. Plug in a humidifier and apply Joyal Beauty moisturizing serums containing hyaluronic acid. A humidifier can add much-needed moisture to the air. Turn on the humidifier all night long in your bedroom, apply Joyal Beauty moisturizing serums containing hyaluronic acid.Hyaluronic acid can attract 1000-times of its weight in water, thus you will find out your skin looks glorious when you wake up in the morning!    
7. Avoid wearing wool and other rough materials next to the skin. These can irritate dry skin, making the condition worse. 
8. Give hands the extra attention they deserve. Hands often show the effects of a dry environment more than any other part of the body. These tips may help hands heal and prevent future problems:
  • When outdoors in winter, wear gloves. This helps protect the skin from the cold, dry air, which can zap moisture from the skin.
  • Apply hand cream after each hand washing. It is important not to skimp on hand washing, which can remove harmful bacteria and viruses. Applying hand cream after each hand washing helps hands retain much-needed moisture. This is especially important for people who frequently immerse their hands in water throughout the day. If you want more luxury feeling, use Joyal Beauty face serum as hand serum. It sounds too luxury, but if you want gorgeous hands, it is worthful. 
  • If hands are frequently immersed in water, wearing waterproof gloves can help protect the hands. Again, it is important not to skimp on hand washing. 
9. Wear sunscreen every day. This is probably one of the most important and difficult tips to remember. Even in the winter, exposure to the sun’s rays speeds up the aging process in the skin. This exposure increases the risk of developing dry skin, wrinkles, age spots, and spider veins. Daily use of a sunscreen can slow these sun-induced signs of aging and reduce the risk of developing skin cancer. Dermatologists recommend wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 30 or higher on all skin that will be exposed. Before applying sunscreen, you may apply Joyal Beauty face serums such as Super Brightening Vitamin C Serum for better protection.   
10. Apply lip balm often. Carrying a tube of lip balm and applying it frequently throughout the day helps heal dry, cracked lips. If lips are extremely dry, dab on petroleum jelly before bed. Continuing to use lip balm once the lips heal can keep lips soft and supple. Dermatologists recommend using a lip balm that has an SPF of at least 30. This can help reduce signs of premature aging and prevent skin cancer on the lips.
When to See a Dermatologist
If these changes do not bring relief, make an appointment to see a dermatologist. Very dry skin may require a prescription ointment or cream. Dry skin also can be a sign of an underlying medical condition such as eczema. A type of eczema called eczema craquelé or asteatotic eczema develops in older adults. A dermatologist can examine the skin and explain what will help alleviate the dryness and irritation.
