Dry skin occurs when skin doesn’t retain sufficient moisture. This can happen as a result of frequent bathing, use of harsh soaps, aging, or certain medical conditions. And for those in colder climates, it can stem from the cold, dry winter air.
- Limit yourself to one 5- to 10-minute bath or shower daily
- Minimize your use of soaps
- Apply moisturizer immediately after bathing or washing your hands and face
