When your estrogen starts to go, you may find yourself struggling with dryness. Dry skin, dry lips, general dehydration — these are all problems that several Woolfers have complained about. So, we’ve collected our favorite tips and tricks below:
Use a Humidifier
Drink Coconut Water
Ok, we don’t have actual medical proof that coconut water is more hydrating than regular water. But some Woolfers swear it leaves them feeling extra hydrated.
Use Cooking Oils On Your Skin
Take Fish Oil
Try freezing your fish oil pills to reduce the aftertaste!
You probably already saw this one coming. We hate to be downers, but alcohol totally dries you out … you’ll notice some major improvements if you cut it out of your diet.
Eat Healthy Fats
Despite what your mother may have told you, some fats are a necessary part of a healthy diet. Foods like avocados, flax seeds, and nuts will help keep your skin feeling hydrated.
Use Topical Moisturizers
if you’ve never slept with Vaseline and socks on your feet, you’re seriously missing out. We also got recommendations for Super Salve moisturizers and serums containing hyaluronic acid.
***Perhaps the most popular piece of advice we heard was to apply your favorite lotion immediately after getting out of the shower.***
Drink More Water
This may seem like a no-brainer, but it can be easy to forget to drink enough water. If you’re feeling dried out, try carrying around a reusable water bottle to make sure you’re staying hydrated throughout the day.
