4. Choose soft fabrics for the skin
Natural fibers (cotton and silk) allow the skin to breathe. Wool is also a natural material, but it can irritate the skin, even if it does not dry out.
When washing clothes, detergents should be used without dyes or perfume, because these substances can irritate the skin.
If dry skin causes itching, cold compressescan be applied to the area.
If these remedies do not relieve symptoms or if the symptoms worsen, consult a doctor or dermatologist.

Remedies for dry skin after tanning

Dry skin may occur after a sunburn .

The skin becomes dehydrated when exposed to:

  • Sol
  • Wind
  • Sea salt

The sun accelerates the production of free radicals, therefore, favors the aging process of the skin.
In addition, the UVA rays of the sun cause the degradation of collagen and elastin , therefore, the skin loses elasticity.

Dry skin occurs when environmental or chemical factors remove from the skin:

  • Hydration
  • Protective oils (tallow) from the surface

For example, ultraviolet radiation damages the epidermis and can cause a solar erythema with dry and cracked skin .
Precautions must be taken to keep the skin hydrated and prevent damage, especially if you suffer from dry skin.

Damage to the epidermis can be caused by:

  • Solar exposition
  • Tanning lamps

To prevent skin damage and avoid dry skin you should:

  1. Use sunscreen with a fairly high sunscreen (SPF 30-50)
  2. Hydrate the skin before and after sun exposure
  3. Choose oils and creams without alcohol

Moisturizing products create a barrier that helps prevent skin dehydration.
