Within a few minutes of drying off after a shower or washing your face and hands, apply an ointment, cream, or lotion. These moisturizers work to trap the existing moisture in your skin.
2. Use an ointment or cream, rather than a lotion.
Lotions can be more irritating and less effective than an ointment or cream. Try a moisturizer that includes olive oil or jojoba oil. Shea butter is another great moisturizer to try as well.
3. Wear gloves.
We tend to notice our dry skin on our hands very first. By wearing gloves, you can reduce chapped and raw skin. Wear your gloves when you go outside and when you use chemicals and greases that may get on your hands.
4. Plug in a humidifier.
Using a humidifier to add moisture to the air is as simple as it sounds. It'll reduce the dryness and help your skin feel better as a whole.
5. Control your baths and showers.
To help prevent dry skin, make sure your bathroom door is shut, cut your time in the shower or bath to just 5 or 10 minutes, use warm water instead of hot, wash with a fragrance free cleanser, and gently pat dry your skin with a towel.
