When you have a problem with dry skin, be cool, wash your skin with warm or cool water- never hot.

  • Soak up some softness, baths are less drying to your skin than showers, use warm water and don’t soak longer than ten minutes.
  • Heat the air, not the water, warm up your bathroom with a space heater, if necessary, so you’ll feel more comfortable bathing in cool water.
  • Use a mild soap your skin could be allergic to certain soaps.
  • Stop scrubbing, try not to rub your skin too hard after bathing, patting with a soft  towel is best.
  • Moisturise your skin,  put on some lotion right after a shower or a bath,  to lock in moisture.
  • Avoid elements, don’t expose your skin too much to sun, wind and cold.
  • Have a balanced diet, eat plenty of foods containing, vitamins A and C. It keeps your skin smooth and supple.
  • Orange fruit and vegetables, meat, and diary products, citrus, peppers and strawberries are foods with vitamin A and C.
  • Drink enough water so your skin does not feel dehydrated.
  • Wear gloves when working around the house, to protect your hands from hot water and drying chemicals.
