Dry skin can be a challenge to deal with, and the changing weather, regular washing and being indoors more often may play a role in exacerbating it. Today I’m sharing a collaborative post on how to passively help your skin day to day. Enjoy!

Living with something like dry skin can be near maddening. This isn’t the sort of condition which is easy to get used to, with people often finding that they suffer with this sort of ailment with differing intensities throughout the year. Of course, there are loads of products on the market which are meant to help with conditions like this, but many people don’t want to add a huge amount of work to their daily routine. To help you out with this, this post will be exploring some of the best tools on the market to passively fight dry skin as part of your normal routine.
Most people use hand wash at least a few times each day. When you go to the toilet, before you cook a meal, and before and after going out are all common times when people will use water and hand wash to keep themselves hygienic. Of course, though, many soaps contain harsh chemicals which will wreak havoc on already dry skin. Soap free body wash can be a great way around this, giving you the chance to keep yourself clean without harming your skin, while also moisturizing yourself in the process.
While not a lot of men wear makeup, this category is plenty big enough to have a place on this list. Makeup will often dry people’s skin and irritate it far more than simply not wearing it, but avoiding the stuff can be very hard, especially if you care deeply about how you present yourself. There are plenty of makeup options on the market which contain moisturizer, and these can be used to ensure that your skin doesn’t dry out when you make yourself look great.
Not a lot of people think too much about dish soap when they are doing the washing up. Products like this are found everywhere, and usually contain little to no moisturizer. This makes it well worth wearing gloves when you’re washing up. Along with this, it can also make sense to wear gloves and other skin protection when you’re using harsh chemicals like bleach. Some washing products do contain moisturizer, and these will be worth using if you’re able to find them.
Clothing and dry skin can often create a very uncomfortable pair, with one reminding you of the other. Of course, though, walking around naked isn’t exactly an option, unless you want to move to a different kind of society. Instead, using materials like cotton which are good for dry and sensitive skin can be a very good idea. Not only will products like this look and feel just as good as any other clothing, but they can give you a great deal of comfort when dealing with dry skin.
With all of this in mind, you should be feeling ready to take on the challenge of finding ways to passively fight dry skin. Many people struggle with work like this, finding it hard to know what needs to be done when they are fighting dry skin on a daily basis.
Do you struggle with dry skin? Do you find anything in particular triggers it and makes it worse?
