Prep Your Home
The drier the air, the drier the skin. To maximize the amount of water in the air, placing a humidifier in the room where you spend the most time, which, in many cases, is the bedroom.
Change Up Your Diet
With a direct connection between the gut and skin health, increasing your daily intake of fats may help with dry skin. Eat a diet rich in walnuts, olive oil, and avocados (but not to sub them for a proper skin-care routine).
Buff Your Skin
No matter how many serums and creams are applied, dry skin will stay dry without some light exfoliation. Pick up a gentle scrub, something with a mild glycolic or lactic acid to get off the dead skin.
Switch to a Heavy Face Cream
Perhaps one of the most important and commonly overlooked steps in the dry skin game is changing to a seriously hydrating moisturizer. Look for creams, rather than lotions, that are made with ceramides and hyaluronic acid
Avoid Harsh Cleansers
Be sure to toss any face washes with drying ingredients, like fragrances or additives, in favor of those with formulated chamomile or oatmeal.
Zero In on a Nighttime Routine
Every night before bed, Marchbein recommends sticking to a routine that will ensure healthy skin come morning. After your face serum and moisturizer, apply a gentle eye cream to the under eyes and lids.
