Drink plenty of water to keep your body and skin well-hydrated. Aim for at least 8 glasses (about 2 liters) a day.
Use a mild, fragrance-free cleanser that is suitable for sensitive skin. Avoid hot water, as it can strip natural oils.
Apply a good quality moisturizer after cleansing while your skin is still slightly damp. Look for moisturizers with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides.
For very dry skin, consider using a thicker, ointment-based moisturizer or a rich cream. For milder dryness, a lotion may suffice.
A humidifier adds moisture to the air, which can be especially helpful during the winter months or in dry climates. Place it in your bedroom or other commonly used areas.
Steer clear of products that contain alcohol, fragrance, or other harsh chemicals, as they can further irritate and dry out your skin.
Hot water can be very drying to the skin. Opt for lukewarm water and limit your time in the shower or bath.
Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, allowing moisturizers to penetrate better. Use a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week. Avoid harsh scrubs, especially if your skin is already dry.
