Dry Skin Care for the Arms, Legs and Body

Treat dry skin with skin care. Contrary to popular belief, dry skin is not caused by not drinking enough water. I like to stress that drinking water does not hydrate your skin any more than taking a bath quenches your thirst. Your body is more complex. Only the most severe dehydration will cause skin to become flacid and dry. It means that if you have dry skin, your skin care routine is important.

Any part of your skin can suffer from dryness. The first and most common areas to show dryness on non-facial areas are the arms and legs. Hands and feet are often dry, too. The skin here is thick, and can become really rough and crack when dry.  

To help heal and balance dry skin, use gentle, non-drying soaps and skin cleansers with cooler water to protect against over-stripping natural skin oils. Adding exfoliation during the bathing process by use of rough cloths or sponges helps to smooth skin texture by removing flaky, dry dead cells. Apply deeply hydrating moisturizers within 3 minutes after toweling skin dry to lock in water. Products with time-honored ingredients such as glycerin and botanical oils will help to bind water and deeply hydrate dry skin. Glycolic acid changes the structure of the protective dead cell layer, making it more durable and compact to help reduce the risk of dryness. The best glycolic acid products to use for dry skin are moisturizers that contain high, professional-grade levels of glycolic acid.

Build your complete skin care routine by choosing the right products for the 4 essential steps in skin care:

  1. Cleanse with non-drying soaps and exfoliating cloths or sponges. Use cooler water temperatures to bathe your skin. 
  2. Correct with exfoliation and glycolic acid products.
  3. Hydrate with deeply hydrating moisturizers. Apply your moisturizers within 3 minutes of toweling skin dry.
  4. Protect with mineral zinc oxide sunscreen, because sun damage leads to skin thinning and dryness. It’s why sun-damaged skin looks like “an old leather purse”.
