Prevent Dry Skin:

  • Use lukewarm-warm water when washing your face and showering. Hot water will dry your skin out quicker.
  • Exfoliate weekly with a body scrub. Exfoliated skin will absorb moisturizer better than skin covered in dead skin cells.
  • Moisturize after every shower or bath.
  • Carry hand cream in your handbag and use after every hand wash.

Nourish Dry Skin:

1) Avocado mask: This is as simple as it gets. Avocado oil is non-clogging and Tie your hair back away from your face and remove all makeup form the skin and the eyes. In a small bowl, smash up an avocado

2) Make your own “Moisturizing Deep Treatment” by slathering on a thick or heavier moisturizer on your hands and feet. Wrap in saran wrap and put on a pair of gloves/socks. Allow to sit for 20-30 minutes for maximum effects.
