Dry skin on face is a physical condition that ranges from mildly annoying to downright painful. It's an issue that can easily be resolved, but there are certain issues you need to be aware of before you go out and spend your hard earned money. This article reveals what to look for and what to avoid in a dry skin on face product.
Fact: The human skin absorbs approximately 60% of what is placed on it.
Take a moment to think about that information. Now think about the products that you put on your skin on a daily basis. Are you helping or hurting your health?
The first thing you should ask yourself when you buy products for your dry skin is this: Are they completely natural? In order to find the best products for your skin and your health, you need to become an expert on ingredients. Be aware of what you are putting on your skin. It's even better if it's organic. Remember, what you put on your skin will end up in your bloodstream. Food for thought.
Next, avoid skin care products that contain any type of alcohol. Isopropyl alcohol, benzoyl alcohol, ethanol, ethyl alcohol, methanol or SD alcohol. These are irritating and drying and can strip the skin's natural acids away, encouraging bacteria, viruses and mold as well as premature skin aging. If dry skin on face is an issue, any products containing alcohol will not be helpful.
Lastly, think twice before you spend tons of money on those designer products you see in the magazines or at your local mall. Studies have shown that the major brand names spend far more on advertising than they do on quality ingredients. In fact, their labels can be downright deceiving. Putting a minuscule or non-beneficial amount of certain ingredients into their products, just so they can feature them on the label. Be an educated consumer!
