1. Prevent baths and showers from making dry skin worse. When your skin is dry, be sure to:

Close the bathroom door
Limit your time in the shower or bath to 5 or 10 minutes
Use warm rather than hot water
Wash with a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser
Apply enough cleanser to remove dirt and oil, but avoid using so much that you see a thick lather
Blot your skin gently dry with a towel
Slather on the moisturizer immediately after drying your skin
2. Apply moisturizer immediately after washing. Ointments, creams, and lotions (moisturizers) work by trapping existing moisture in your skin. To trap this much-needed moisture, you need to apply a moisturizer within few minutes of:

Drying off after a shower or bath
Washing your face or hands
3. Use an ointment or cream rather than a lotion. Ointments and creams are more effective and less irritating than lotions. Look for a cream or ointment that contains an oil such as olive oil or jojoba oil. Shea butter also works well. Other ingredients that help to soothe dry skin include lactic acid, urea, hyaluronic acid, dimethicone, glycerin, lanolin, mineral oil, and petrolatum.

Tip: Carry a non-greasy hand cream with you, and apply it after each hand washing. This will greatly help relieve dry skin.

4. Wear lip balm. Choose a lip balm that feels good on your lips. Some healing lip balms can irritate your lips. If your lips sting or tingle after you apply the lip balm, switch to one that does not cause this reaction.

5. Use only gentle, unscented skin care products. Some skin care products are too harsh for dry, sensitive skin. When your skin is dry, stop using:

Deodorant soaps
Skin care products that contain alcohol, fragrance, retinoids, or alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA)
Avoiding these products will help your skin retain its natural oils.

6. Wear gloves. Our hands are often the first place we notice dry skin. You can reduce dry, raw skin by wearing gloves. Be sure to put gloves on before you:

Go outdoors in winter
Perform tasks that require you to get your hands wet
Get chemicals, greases, and other substances on your hands
7. Choose non-irritating clothes and laundry detergent. When our skin is dry and raw even clothes and laundry detergent can be irritating. To avoid this:

Wear cotton or silk under your clothing made of wool or another material that feels rough
Use laundry detergent labeled “hypoallergenic”
8. Stay warm without cozying up to a fireplace or other heat source. Sitting in front of an open flame or other heat source can dry your skin.

9. Add moisture to the air. Plug in a humidifier. If you can check your home heating system, find out if you have a humidifier on the system — and whether it’s working.

When to see a dermatologist
Your skin should start to feel better quickly. If these changes do not bring relief, you may want to see a dermatologist. Very dry skin can require a prescription ointment or cream. Dry skin also can be a sign of a skin condition that needs treatment. A dermatologist can examine your skin and explain what can help reduce your discomfort.

is not only the body cream that we apply to the body helps us to take care of the skin but there are so many ways.
one solution is regular drinking of water and also the kind of food we eat is also a very important you have to make sure that, the food you eat everyday contain the necessary food nutrient such as protein,vitamins and many more. again you have to eat fruit regularly fruit contain much of the nutrient our body require to grow well and also there should be limitation of too much intake of oil foods which result to nothing but sickness.

Three things you must consider in taking care of your dry skin- your diet, your environment and your daily routine practice. Eat more of fruits and juicy foods, take enough water, get vitamins A and E nutritious supplements and Omega 3 fatty-acids from almonds, olive oil, salmon, sardines, carrot etc. Stay away from very high temperatures, protect your skin from sun as you may run the risk of skin cancer to prolonged continous exposure and also protect your skin from extreme cold too. Avoid hard water composition for bathing. Bath with warm or normal water (avoid very hot water) once a day if necessary using mild soap, wash lightly not hard and dry your body gently. Apply moisturizing cream very well, don't bath with very hot water, cover your body properly from cold and harsh weather. maitain a healthy humidity in your room and don't forget to consult the doctor when necessary. check out this link Good luck and have a healthy skin.

กินแต่ของที่มีวิตามินc มากๆ เพราะผิวเราต้องได้รับความชุ่มชื้นตั้งแต่ข้างในก่อน แล้วใช่ครีมที่มีความชุ่มชื้นและความนุ่มนวล เช่น Nivea วาสลีน ที่สำคัญ ห้ามถูกแสงแดดมากเกินไป ให้ใส่เสื้อผ้าแขน ขา ยาว ก่อนสักพัก พอผิวเริ่มดีแล้ว ก็ใส่ตามปกติ ใด้เลยจร้า จุ็บๆ ถ้าถูกใจให้รางวัลผมด้วยน่ะะ
