Diane Goettel

Choosing the best dry skin products means choosing a product that address one's personal dry skin issues. In addition to having dry skin, many people also suffer with rough skin, or delicate skin, or blemished skin. There are dry skin products that range from pumices to brushes, from gels to oils, but there is no singular magic product that will work for everyone. Identifying one's own skin issues is the first step in finding dry skin products that will address and resolve those issues.

For rough skin, consider using a dry skin product such as a moisturizing scrub. This kind of scrub will help to remove dead skin cells while also moisturizing the skin. Another option is to use a skin brush. Brushing the skin helps to stimulate circulation, which is an important part of good skin health. It also loosens and removes dead skin cells, which helps to buff the skin. After doing this, moisturize the skin with a cream or a skin oil to treat the new, fresh skin that has been revealed.
