Air pollution carries harmful microscopic particles, gases, chemicals in it. It is not only bad for breathing but also has an impact on skin health. One of the effects of air pollution on skin health is that it makes the skin drier. This condition can cause discomfort, irritation, and even more serious skin problems if not managed properly. Here are 6 tips from experts for taking care of dry skin and keeping it moisturized.


1. Avoid washing your face with water that is too hot





The higher the temperature of the water you use will strip the natural oils from your skin and make it drier. It is best to wash your face with cold or lukewarm water.


2. Consider using a humidifier




A humidifier is a device that can increase the humidity in the air around you. This can be especially beneficial if you live in an area with dry air.


3. Drink enough water




Dry skin care does not only come from the outside, but also from within. Make sure you drink enough water every day to keep your body hydrated. Well-hydrated skin will be better able to retain moisture.


4. Choose gentle cleaning products




The first step in treating dry skin is to choose a cleansing product that is gentle and free of harsh chemicals.
