Removing Dry Spots On Face

Winter is almost here, and you maybe experiencing dry spots on your face as a result of many factors, including temperature changes, humidity, soaps with harsh chemicals, and skin conditions, such as eczema. Dry skin can be itchy, and it may look flaky and bumpy or have red patches. Dehydrated skin lacks water and appears dull or rough, and we don't want that. 

Following the same skin care routine year round may not work so well when the cold weather surfaces.  Without a change in your skin care, dry air can make fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable. Dry skin can itch, flake, crack, and even bleed.

For some of us, getting rid of dry skin is easy, using home remedies and over-the-counter (OTC) treatments, but for most, there may be some underlying issues leading to your dry spots on your face

What causes dry spots on face

Your skin naturally produces an oil called sebum.  Having some sebum on the skin is important for keeping it hydrated and protecting the cells from infection. Facial skin that is not creating or replenishing enough sebum becomes dry and causes those dry patches on your face. 

Other causes of dry spots  

  • skin conditions
  • cold weather 
  • harsh chemicals
  • too much hot water/washing 
  • smoking 
  • dry air 

Fixing dry spots on  your face

  • wash your face daily with a gentle cleanser
  • wear sunscreen every day
  • apply moisturizer after bathing or washing your face
  • use warm, not hot, water when washing your face or bathing
  • stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water
  • limit caffeine intake
  • limit time in direct sunlight

  • use a humidifier
  • quit smoking
