Dry Skin Prevention Tips

Moisturize your skin, use thick moisturizers on your body and use oil free moisturizers on your face if you tend to breakout (acne) inspite of the dry skin. Moisturizers seal your skin to keep water from escaping.

Use natural oils such as olive oil, sesame oil, grapeseed oil or any other oils to help moisturize your skin. Apply this right after you shower, while your skin is still moist. Oil has more staying power than cream moisturizers. You can add a few drops of essential oils like lavender, ylang ylang or rose to the natural oil you use before applying on your body.

Avoid hot showers and baths, use warm water instead and limit how long you expose your skin to water. Hot water removes oils from your skin. If you swim a lot, shower as soon as you can after your swim and apply moisturizer all over the body.

Use cleansing creams or shower gels with added moisturizers. If you use soap make sure you choose mild soaps that have added oils and fats, e.g. olive oil soaps. Your skin should feel soft and smooth after cleansing, never tight or dry.

Apply Sunscreen all over your exposed body, every day before you go out in the sun.

Mix one egg yolk, a half cup cooked oatmeal, half a mashed banana and a tablespoon honey. Allow to cool this mixture. Apply on your face, wait for 15 minutes and rinse off with fresh cool water.
