No. Bubble baths are notorious for drying your skin out as the contain many chemicals. Watch your diet, maintain good hydration with water and apply moisturizer liberally and frequently. The best moisturizer is the one your skin likes!
I have very dry skin, usually after a couple hours of applying my moisturizer and makeup I get dry flaky skin. I exfoliate too. How do I get rid of it?
See below. If it is on the face, you may have seborrhea, an eczema of oily areas, which may respond to otc hydrocortisone cream and Lotrimin (clotrimazole) Ultra creams 2 a day and regular moisturizing when clear. An AHA moisturizer may help as well by exfoliating as it moisturizes. If it is on the body, try switching to an AHA body moisturizer for several weeks, supplementing it with a regular ceramide moisturizer..
Hydrate /moisturize. 1. Hydrate well with water. 2. Avoid lengthy or hot showers. 3. Use sunscreen consistently. 4. Avoid harsh or deodorant soaps - think hypoallergenic & unscented. 5. Only need frequent soap/cleanser on areas that are dirty, oily or create body odor. 6. Use moisturizer as needed. 7. Aim for 8 hours of sleep per night. 8. Maintain a healthy diet.
Several things. Have thyroid checked, then avoid hot showers, drink plenty of water, use a moisterizing lotion twice a day and after bathing.
1st determine cause. First determine what is the cause of the flaky skin. Simple evaporative losses may best be managed with hygiene, exfoliation and moisturizers. Addition of retinoids may be indicated, either otc or prescription. However other disease conditions such as psoriasis or eczema may be the cause and require medical treatment.
Seborrhea. Seborrhea (seb-uh-ree-uh) is a common skin condition (red, itchy rash & white scales). It is called dandruff when is affects the scalp, but it can also be on other parts of the face & body (folds around nose, behind the ears, the forehead, eyebrows, eyelids, chest, around (the navel). Medicated shampoos used 2-3x/wk on these area as directed can help reduce the scaling. See your dermatologist.
Dermatitis. Most likely you developed a condition called seborrheic dermatitis. Otc cortisone-10 might help. Otherwise, derm may prescribe stronger cortisone creams to control it.
Sounds like dandruff. This is a typical area, also found in eyebrows around nasal alar, and scalp. Try topical hydrocortisone mixed with lamisil (terbinafine) twice a day but if not clear see derm for prescription strength.
