Moisturize to relieve skin peeling
“My skin is extremely dry in the winter. The more I scratch, the more skin starts to peel like snowflakes. Applying moisturizer does not seem to help.”
CheckCheckCin: Many people are expecting snow in winter, but if the skin is dry and peeling skin shred like “snow”, it is very distressing. Weather is dry during autumn and winter. If you have blood deficiency or yin deficiency body type, skin dryness may be even more serious. Applying moisturizer only hydrates the skin surface. It does not improve the overall body dryness. What you need is deep moisturization. The diet should be light. Eat more foods that can nourish yin and relieve dryness, such as radix adenophorae, radix ophiopogonis, radix ophiopogonis, sea coconut, lily bulb, fig. Avoid having milk tea, coffee, and spicy and oily and hot-natured foods. Avoid staying up late. The water temperature should not be too high when taking a bath, and the time should be shortened to avoid worsening skin dryness. After drying your body with a towel, it is better to apply moisturizer while the body is still damp. If the skin dryness is serious, choose a moisturizer with higher oil content. Drinking water slowly, and use humidifiers at office and home to alleviate the symptoms of dryness.
