Save Your Dry Snout This Fall: This Hydrating Supplement Is On The Nose
When people spot dry skin, oftentimes the immediate urge is to slough off all flakes in the hopes for bright, smooth skin underneath. While exfoliation can certainly help at times, dry skin around the nose might need a different plan of action, especially if you’re dealing with environmental triggers: “When dryness appears, many people try to exfoliate, or peel off the dry skin, which usually makes it worse,” board-certified dermatologist Ife J. Rodney, M.D., FAAD, founding director of Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics, says about the condition.
Rather, you might want to focus on hydrating ingredients that simultaneously protect the skin’s moisture barrier, like ceramides. You can, of course, slather on a buttery cream in the crevices of your nose, or you can support your skin’s internal hydration levels from the get-go.* As Rodney reminds us, “For dry skin around the nose, prevention is easier than cure.”
