To keep your skin healthy, consider the following basic skin care tips:
Use a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen daily, and seek shade.
Wash your skin each morning and night with a cleanser appropriate for your skin type.
Hydrate your skin each morning and night with a moisturizer appropriate for your skin type.
Special tips should be followed for the care of dry skin:
Take shorter showers and baths, no more than once daily.
Use mild, gentle soaps or cleansers. Avoid deodorant/fragrance soaps.
Apply a rich moisturizer right after bathing and throughout the day as needed.
Ointments and creams may work better than lotions or gels for dry skin types.
Use a humidifier and don't let indoor temperatures get too hot.
Buy natural cleaning products.
Wear gloves when using cleaning agents, solvents, or household detergents.
