Tips to take care of dry skin

Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! Make sure to apply moisturiser immediately after washing. Moisturisers work by trapping existing moistures in your skin, so to get as much of this moisture, you should apply the moisturiser right away.

Use only fragrance-free and gentle skin products. This one is rather obvious, but to care for sensitive, dry skin, you should avoid harsh ingredients and search for only 'fragrance-free' products.

Add moisture to the air. If possible, get a humidifier for the air in your home. Dry, warm air can cause tiny cracks in the skin and dries it out very quickly.

Lower your shower temp. Although it's tempting not to, reduce the temperature of your showers. Take warm to cool powers showers, and keep your mittens off that hot tap!
