Doctor :   iwill give u tips for dry skin
Doctor :   how to keep skin moisturized
Doctor :   Moisturize your skin. Moisturizers provide a seal over your skin to keep water from escaping
Doctor :   Use warm water and limit bath time. Hot water and long showers or baths remove oils from your skin. Limit your bath or shower time to about 15 minutes or less, and use warm, rather than hot, wate
Doctor :   r u there
Doctor :   Avoid harsh, drying soaps. If you have dry skin, it's best to use cleansing creams or gentle skin cleansers and bath or shower gels with added moisturizers. Choose mild soaps that have added oils and fats
User :   yup
Doctor :   Pat dry. After washing or bathing, gently pat or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on the skin. Immediately moisturize your skin with an oil or cream
Doctor :   Use a humidifier. Hot, dry indoor air can parch sensitive skin and worsen itching and flaking. A portable home humidifier or one attached to your furnace adds moisture to the air inside your home. Portable humidifiers come in many varieties.
Doctor :   Choose fabrics that are kind to your skin. Natural fibers such as cotton and silk allow your skin to breathe.
Doctor :   If dry skin causes itching, apply cool compresses to the area
Doctor :   In most cases, dry skin problems respond well to self-care measures, such as using moisturizers and avoiding long, hot showers and baths
User :   wat abt scrubs? even if d skin is dry....removing d dead cells is equally imp it not?
Doctor :   yes isit, dont aggressively remove them
Doctor :   wany particular season
Doctor :   u get dry skin
Doctor :   Central air and heating, wood-burning stoves, space heaters and fireplaces all reduce humidity and dry your skin
Doctor :   r u there
