Hi Mrs. Smitha,
Thank you for opting healthcaremagic.com to post your queries and to give us this opportunity to clarify your doubts.
Well, dermadew is a good soap and cream for dry skin. Basically, you need a soap or a cream with a moisturiser in it, which will retain the moisture from the skin and avoid it from becoming dry. Such kind of a soap is required mostly in the winter and dry climates. You can switch over to your regular soap during the other seasons. Preferably use an ayurvedic preparation soap normally also. It causes relatively less dryness.

I hope I have been successful in clarifying your doubts and will always be available in case of further doubts. Take care and stay healthy.

Hi Smitha,
Thank you for your query,
In winter season because of decreased moisture in the weather leads to dryness of skin.
So in winter in dry skin individuals care must be taken to maintain skin moisture by using moisturizing soaps and lotions.
You can use that soap for bathing and apply that cream immediately after bathing to retain the water which is present in skin layers after the bath.
You can apply the moisturizing cream or lotion thrice daily depending on the necessity.
The duration depends on the nature of skin and usually applied till the end of winter season.
Hope i have answered your query.
