Dry Skin Problems
Desert Climates Equal Dry Skin
You read correctly, dry skin is nearly always due to an environmental cause… and we’re literally living inside a sand bowl, with our skin and scalp suffering the consequences. Dealing with dry skin or a flakey scalp? It’s the weather and your surroundings, darling. Low moisture in the air leads to dry, ashy skin. Low or high temperatures cause damage to our skin. Not to mention over exposing our skin to skin to water by frequent showering, excessive hand washing with harsh soaps because of COVID-19, and of course, all those visits to the pool or the sea in summertime.

If you’re suffering from super dry skin and itchy scalp, try to combat the environmental woes with a couple of routine tips and hacks. Moisturize. It is the number one way to seal the skin to keep hydration and moisture from escaping. Try CHAOS fast-absorbing and super hydrating Smooth skin cream. Limit water exposure. Limit your shower time to 10 minutes or less, or two Lady Gaga songs, and try to minimize your showers to once a day. Apply a hair mask once a hair. Replenish dehydrated hair and scalps with CHAOS Hydrate, the specially formulated hair mask for dry hair. Choose your soaps carefully. Avoid harsh chemicals and anti-bacterial soap, check the ingredients and opt for gentle cleansers with safe ingredients. Cover up in cold or windy weather. Exposed skin to cold wind is potentially dry skin! Long sleeves, scarves and gloves.
