Skin care routine to prevent skin dryness

There are many people who suffer from dry skin even though they take care of their skin on a regular basis. In order to keep your skin moisturized, it is recommended to review not only your usual skincare routine, but also your room environment. In this article, I will explain in detail about effective skincare methods and environmental reviews to prevent skin dryness.

What causes skin to dry out?

First of all, let's check the causes of dry skin. It will help you understand what measures you need to take. The causes of dry skin are as follows

Dry air
When the air is dry, the moisture in the skin evaporates more easily. In the winter, the air tends to be dry, and many people suffer from cracking. In addition, air conditioning removes moisture from the air, so it is essential to take measures against dryness even in non-winter seasons.

Damage caused by ultraviolet rays

Ultraviolet rays damage the skin both on the surface and deep within the skin. When the stratum corneum on the surface of the skin is damaged by UV rays, the skin's ability to retain moisture decreases, leading to dryness. The lowered barrier function also makes the skin more vulnerable to external stimuli, making it more prone to dryness.

Improper skin care and bathing

Friction caused by nylon towels, scrubbing, and using too much cleanser or soap can strip the skin of its moisture. Excessively hot showers can also cause the loss of sebum, which supports the skin's barrier function, making the skin drier.

Loss of moisture due to aging

As we age, the amount of ceramides and natural moisturizing factors that maintain the skin's moisture tends to decrease. As a result, the skin's moisture content decreases and it becomes more prone to dryness.

Add to your regular skin care routine! Basic measures for dry skin

While reviewing your daily skincare routine, you should also pay attention to the environment to prevent your skin from drying out. Here are some tips on how to prevent dry skin.

Use hot towels to increase the penetration of skin care products

Using a hot towel to open up your pores before applying skincare can enhance the penetration of beauty ingredients. It can also eliminate dirt in the pores and improve pore opening. To make a hot towel, wet a towel in water, squeeze it tightly, wrap it in plastic wrap, and heat it in the microwave for about a minute. If it is too hot, cool it down to a moderate temperature before use.

Use basic skin care products that avoid harsh ingredients

It is important to choose hypoallergenic basic skin care products that are applied directly to the skin. Use basic skin care products that do not contain alcohol or preservatives. It is important to note that some cosmetic ingredients may cause irritation to the skin. Use a trial kit to check for any signs of discomfort or redness.

Keep facial massaging to get better skin

Skin care experts advise on a facial massage at home 2-3 times a week. However, gentle massaging everyday for 5-10 minutes does no harm to your skin. It helps in promoting blood circulation and fading fine lines over time. MIO2 Facial massager helps promote healthy skin while relaxing your facial muscles. It has a relaxing and rejuvenating effect, helping you look and feel better.

Consume foods that increase the skin's ability to retain moisture

Consciously consume foods that increase the skin's ability to retain moisture. Proteins, vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, and other vitamins can improve the skin's ability to retain moisture from various angles. Take liver, pork, eel, natto (fermented soybeans), saury, tuna, spinach, carrots, almonds, nuts, kiwi, and strawberries.

Take foods that improve blood circulation

Vitamin E, among others, promotes blood circulation and increases the supply of nutrients to the skin. Almonds, nuts, soybeans, anglerfish liver, cod roe, and avocados are rich in this vitamin. However, be careful not to consume too much, as foods that contain vitamin E also tend to contain a lot of fat.

Hang your laundry indoors

It is recommended that you hang your laundry indoors to maintain the humidity in the room. However, you may be concerned about the smell of your laundry. Use a detergent that is suitable for indoor drying and ventilate the room frequently.

Place plants

Plants have the ability to increase the humidity in a room. It is a good idea to have houseplants in your room. Adding greenery to the room will help you relax. This will ease your stress and ultimately have a positive effect on your skin.

Install a humidifier

One of the easiest ways to prevent dryness in a room is to install a humidifier. Choose a humidifier that can be adjusted according to the room temperature to achieve the ideal humidity level.

What you should pay attention to in your regular skin care routine

When your skin is dry, there are some things you need to take care of in your regular skin care routine. In order to prevent further dryness, pay attention to the following

Choose a milk or cream type of cleanser

Choose a milk or cream type cleanser that removes makeup without irritating the skin. Oil cleansers are more effective at removing makeup and leave your skin feeling refreshed, but they are not suitable for dry skin. To avoid having to use oil cleansing, use natural makeup or cosmetics that can be easily removed.

Do not wash your face with hot water

It is important to wash your face with lukewarm water because hot water can dissolve the sebum that your skin needs. Washing your face with hot water may make your face feel crispy and clean, but this is a sign that you are removing too much sebum.

Gently press the lotion into the skin with your hands

Gently apply lotion by pressing it into the skin with your hands, rather than dabbing or rubbing it in. Tapping or rubbing will cause damage to the skin, blemishes and wrinkles.


While reviewing the usual skin care measures to prevent dryness, let's add care in the hot towel and cream. It is also important to install a humidifier and houseplants to prevent the humidity in the room from dropping. Dryness lowers the barrier function of the skin, and as a result, increases the risk of spots, wrinkles, and sagging, so it is important to take proper measures.
