Prevent baths and showers from making dry skin worse. When your skin is dry, be sure to:
* Close the bathroom door * Limit your bathing time to 10 minutes * Use warm rather than hot water
Apply moisturizer immediately after washing. Moisturizers work by trapping existing moisture in your skin. To trap this much-needed moisture, you need to apply a moisturizer within a few minutes of:
* Drying off after a shower or bath * Washing your face or hands
Look your best all day… every day!
