From revamping your skin care routine to making subtle changes to our lifestyles, we find out which solution will spring your skin back to its hydrated best!
DIY home remedies to treat dry skin
DIY home remedies from honey masks to sugar scrubs- we’ve all tried them at least once right? Easily sourced with an abundance of recipes online, it’s an easily accessible solution – or so it seems.
Whilst some DIY face masks may work wonders for one’s skin, the results may vary according to your individual skin type and priority. Additionally, DIY masks and scrubs are easily perishable, time consuming to make, and are quite messy! Making treating dry skin seem more like a chore!
Lifestyle habits to avoid skin dryness
Here are some lifestyle habits that may be causing you more damage than you think so.
Dry Skin Causes
Avoid long hot showers
As tempting as staying in the shower forever seems to be, exposure to hot water for long periods of time strips the body of its natural oils, resulting in dry skin. Decrease your chances of dry skin by limiting the time spent in the shower as well as moisturising afterwards.
Avoid excessive cleansing
By excessively cleansing, the skin’s natural oils are depleted which leaves the skin feeling dry and compromises its ability to function.
Avoid prolonged sun exposure
Increased exposure to the sun results in drying the skin of its natural oils.

Photorejuvenation age peel for dry skin
Shorter than a lunch break, chemical peels deeply exfoliate the skin to target skin cells that cause:
- Acne breakouts
- Traumatic pigmentation
- Collagen loss
- Provides overall rejuvenation
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines
Regular exfoliation promotes blood circulation as well as encourages the turnover of cells, resulting in clear and healthy skin.
