It may seem obvious, but if you have dry, itchy skin on your face, moistening is often important. "If you apply the cream after taking a shower, the moisturizer will be included," says dr. Jaliman. "Do not miss the nightly use as it will penetrate your skin more efficiently."
If you're looking for new skincare products, look for ingredients like colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, hyaluronic acid, squalene, glycerine, and jojoba oil. Moisturizing formulations containing these ingredients "will keep your skin supple and hydrated," says Dr. Jaliman.
You'll also want to take a close look at the products already in your medicine cabinet. Dr. Draftsman recommends avoiding spicy soaps and making sure that the exfoliating ingredients are not stressed too much, which can lead to more irritation. "If you see dry, flaky skin instead of exfoliating first, listen to your skin needs and use a moisturizer," he says. "If you still see flakes after moistening, you can put the scrub in order."
