3 Tips to Combat Dry Skin:

1. Use creams or ointments instead of lotion. Lotions are alcohol-based, and if your skin is already dry, they won’t work as enough of a barrier to help your skin combat dryness.

2. Only use soap on the smelly parts. Soap is naturally basic, and your skin is naturally acidic. Soap is irritating to skin, and there is no need to lather your entire body, especially if you are dry.

3. Apply cream immediately after the shower. The best time to apply cream is right after the shower. When wet, your skin actually absorbs some of that moisture. Applying a cream right after bathing locks that moisture in, keeping your skin nice and moist, instead of ashy cracked and dry.
