How to get rid of peeling?
The main cause of peeling is always moisture loss, therefore, when such an ailment appears, it is necessary to drink as much liquid as possible. Juice, tea, milk and other drinks are not suitable, you need to drink clean drinking water. The average daily norm for a woman is 2-2.5 liters of water per day. With active sports, this figure increases to 3-3.5 liters.
Incorrectly selected care products can not only cause peeling, but also seriously harm the health of the skin. To improve the condition:
- Refuse to use aggressive cleansers – soap and soap-containing products. Wash with special milk or gels with moisturizing ingredients. After washing, in no case should you rub your face with a towel, just gently blot it and proceed to the next step of care.
- Makeup removers can dry out the skin. As an alternative, hydrophilic oil is used.
- Refuse alcohol lotions and any alcohol-containing products. After washing, wipe the face with a moisturizing tonic, and only then apply a cream or serum.
- Choose the right cosmetics. There are many deep moisturizing products on the market, moreover, you can choose a whole care system aimed specifically at moisturizing.
- Regularly use moisturizing masks (2-3 times a week).
- Give up scrubs in favor of soft peels that do not injure the skin.
It is very important to purchase only certified products and be sure to check expiration dates. This applies not only to cosmetics, but also to food, household chemicals, and medicines. Allergies can be a reaction to foods, care products, flowering of certain plants.
In case of an allergic reaction, you must immediately stop contact with the allergen, otherwise the disease may become chronic. If this is food, then it would be useful to review your entire diet and give preference to proper nutrition, give up fast food, excessively fatty and fried foods, and include fresh vegetables and fruits in your daily menu.
If you cannot identify the allergen, you should contact a specialist and get tested.
Lack of vitamins A, B2, E can cause peeling, so it is recommended to drink a course of vitamins. However, a balanced diet is more effective. Vitamin A is found in chicken eggs, butter, and liver. B2 – in cheese, cottage cheese, curdled milk, meat and liver. Vitamin E is found in spinach, butter, rye bread, pasta.
Skin condition also depends on the level of hormones in the body. Its appearance is affected by changes in the level of sex hormones and thyroid hormones. This is manifested by loss of elasticity, dryness and peeling. In such cases, you need to see a doctor and get tested for hormones. Based on the results of the research, the doctor will prescribe the appropriate treatment.
During menopause and after surgery to remove the ovaries, the level of estrogen drops sharply, which leads to a decrease in skin elasticity and insufficient moisture. To improve well-being in general and the condition of the skin in particular, hormone replacement therapy is prescribed.
Runny nose, inflammation of the nasal mucosa
With inflammation of the nasal mucosa and a runny nose, first of all, a mechanical effect on the skin of the nose with a handkerchief, napkins, etc. occurs. Therefore, such peeling usually disappears after the runny nose stops.
There are a number of diseases in which peeling occurs, most often accompanied by redness and itching. These are dermatitis, psoriasis, fungal diseases. If you suspect one of these diseases, you should definitely consult a dermatologist.
Adverse external factors
Dryness and flaking can also be seasonal reactions. Frost, wind, scorching sun, dry air in the apartment – all this adversely affects the condition of the skin. Therefore, it is necessary to use appropriate protective creams or creams with SPF. They must be applied no later than half an hour before going outside. In the cold season, the air in the rooms is too dry due to the active work of heating systems. In this case, you can use a humidifier or hang wet towels on the battery.
