December 24th, 2013 by aclazaro

Here are some tips on how to treat dry skin:

When you shower use lukewarm water and don’t take long showers or baths.

Apply moisturizer while skin is still damp to seal in moisture.

Use mild soap and avoid perfumed soaps.

Use a humidifier at home.

Avoid skin care products that contain alcohol.

Don’t wash your face too frequently.

Use moisturizers which contain emollients. Emollients, such as urea and mineral oils, soften skin and provide a barrier to keep moisture in and harmful agents out. Your moisturizer should also have lipids (fat or waxes) such as cholesterol, lecithin or glycerol.

Dry skin can cause flaky and rough skin. To get rid of the layer of dead skin use a gentle exfoliant containing alpha hydroxy acid or beta hydroxy acid.

Wear sunscreen.

The Gucci Flora perfume is nothing as floral at all. In a sense that there is nothing strong or sharp about its scent. It is actually light and evokes the younger consumer of Gucci as what Gucci’s creative director, Frida Giannini describes it. The notes for Flora are listed as citrus, peony, rose, osmanthus, pink pepper, sandalwood and patchouli, but in conclusion, Flora is a sheer, almost-sparkling floral, very pale and clean. Available at macys for $90.
