Health Tip: Take Care of Dry Skin

Health Tip: Take Care of Dry Skin

01/13/12

(HealthDay News) -- Dry skin can be itchy, uncomfortable and even painful if the skin begins to crack.

The Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions for caring for dry skin:

  • Make sure your shower or bath water is lukewarm; never too hot.
  • Take baths or showers of no longer than 10 minutes.
  • Apply a moisturizer as soon as you get out of the bath or shower.
  • Wash with a moisturizing cleanser.
  • During winter months, moisturize with a heavy cream or ointment. Use a lighter lotion during summer.
