You should apply sun screen lotion , SPF 25 after taking bath

Apply moisturizer cream in the evening

Glaha HQ will also help but is to be applied after dinner while sleeping with all the lights off.

It is better to show it to a dermatologist.

Take care

Best wishes

Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.
Avoid caffeine, smoking, and alcohol. They act as diuretics and are guaranteed to suck you dry up.
Increase your water level. Drink up. Make sure to drink at least 8 glasses of pure water a day to keep your skin and body properly hydrated. Add oil to your bath.
Protect your skin from the elements. Wind, sun, heat, cold, and dry office and airplane air can quickly cause or exacerbate the condition of dry skin. Apply a moisturizer before exposing your skin to these moisture-sapping conditions.
Limit hot water contact. Increase EFAs in your diet. Try a non-petroleum jelly product available in health food stores.
