Have dry skin, relief with moisturizer, drinking lemon in water. Is it the reason?

Hi I'm 30 yrs old and weigh 74kgs. As I live in a cold country skin gets dried up when ever there is a change in climate. But then regular moisturising was helping me all these years. These days I started drinking with lemon slices in the jug of water. Now, just wondering if drinking this way is drying my skin up? Please advice.
Many Thanks

thank you for your query
drinking water with lemon slices in it is a good habit.don't worry that is not the cause of your skin drying up.

if the dryness is severe i can suggest few tips you can follow..
1.Use non detergent, neutral-pH products to cleanse your skin. Avoid using any commercial soap. And always touch your face gently.
2.Follow a bath or a shower with a mild application of baby oil.
3. Massage your face with home-made nourishing cream every night before sleeping
4.once a week you can have full body application of aloe vera infused oil/moisturizer.and wash it off after half hour

this routine should restore the supplenes of your skin in 2 weeks time.

thank you ,
wishing you good health
