How to Deal With Dry Skin

  • Use tepid, not hot, water when showering or bathing. Hot water may feel soothing on dry skin, but will only cause further irritation.

  • Avoid scented soaps and detergents.

  • Pat skin dry with a towel -- do not rub.

  • Put lotion on your skin right after showering to seal in moisture.

  • Don't wear wool or other scratchy materials against your skin.

  • Don't lick chapped lips. Excess moisture on the skin will evaporate, and contribute to drying of the skin.
