Don't shower in very hot water.
Avoid the over-use of soap. Use a mild soap with a skin-friendly pH value.
Dab skin dry - don't rub.
Apply a moisturiser while skin is still a little damp.
Protect the skinfrom the sun excessive exposure to sun rays can cause dry skin, wrinkles and skin cancer.
To reduce irritation, wear light clothes made of cotton.
Depending on how dry your skin is it may be best to use a relatively thin moisturising lotion or cream in the summer and switch to a thicker more oily moisturising ointment in the winter.
Moisturising shower gels and bath additives that dont strip the skin of its natural oils can be used instead of soap when washing.
Look for skin products that contain vitamin E oil or gel, natural plant extracts, aloe vera, cocoa or shea butter and oatmeal.

Cucumber is a natural cleanser. Mix cucumber juice with milk and use it instead of a cleanser.
For oily skin, apply a mixture of grapes, lemon and egg white. Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water. While lemon acts as a natural cleanser, grapes will soften your skin and egg whites will tighten it. Dont be alarmed if your skin tingles.
Cut the lemon and rub the wedge all over your face. Leave it for about 20 minutes, then rinse off with cold water. This will refresh your face. Avoid doing this if you have dry skin.
