Dry Skin is something that everyone usually deals with at least once in their lives but when it is a constant issue, what can the solution be? Jessica, an esthetician at Red Lotus Skin Care Salon in Portland, OR, deals with dry skin every day that flakes, and peels.... Her remedy? Chemical peels. ( Say what???) Now, you're probably thinking: why would i get a chemical peel if my skin is already peeling? Well, the chemical peel gets all that dead skin off of your face revealing your beautiful, smooth complexion underneath. Chemical peels also remove built up layers so your skin can actually absorb the products you're putting on it easier.Another factor for dry skin issues can sometimes be things we do without even realizing. We can be using a cleanser or soap that is too harsh or maybe we are taking too hot of showers. Hot water strips our skin of it's natural oil barrier. That does not mean you cannot enjoy a warm shower, just make sure you are only staying in for 5-10 minutes.
Another key solution to improve anybody's skin is to drink water! Water is not only good for our insides, but our outsides as well! Being dehydrated keeps your tissues and organs from getting the nutrients they need, leaving your skin parched. An adequate amount of water for a male is about 13 cups and for a woman about 9 cups.
