Recently, I've started feeling like my skin is drier than I want it to be, regardless of how much moisturizing and SPF'ing. Either I'm not using the right product brands, or I'm using it infrequently.
Does anyone have any good recommendations for Sun Screen products and moisturizers? I've been using Body Shop and Mission skincare products about twice a day.
I've been having the same problem. And for my skin I have been moisterizing in the mornings with Kiehl's SPF 15 before going to work and it's finally got my facial skin to stop peeling.
I also use Neutrogena spray on suncreen that I get in bulk at Costco in the summer.
What about hydration and nutrition? If you're not drinking enough water, that can contribute to drier skin. (You can also get some water from food sources like fruit.) A moderate amount of "healthy" fats (polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats) help to keep your skin healthy, among other benefits.
When you swim in a chlorinated pool, try to rinse off the chlorine as soon as possible after the swim session. That can help too.
