Apart from continuous moisture that you lose, you need to make sure you avoid taking hot showers and limit the time spent in the shower to not more than 10 minutes. This will not rip away the natural moisture.

Moisturise More

Do not think that applying moisturiser once in a day is fine if you have dry skin. Keep constantly applying moisturiser every 2 hours. This helps the skin to stay soft and supple.


Give Your Hands A Hand

Since the skin on the hands is quite delicate, it is important that you take a little extra care of your hands and apply more of moisturiser and even massage your hands regularly. This helps to regulate the blood circulation and keeps your hand soft and supple.


Hydrate For Skin

If your skin is gentle, avoid harsh peels, masks or any alcohol products or toners as it will dry out your skin even more. Instead use some moisturising cream.
