DRY SKIN: Dry skin is often a result of excessive dryness in the house. Get a humidifier & make sure the relative humidity is at least 40%. Soaps & laundry detergents can aggravate dry skin. Use a body cleanser like cetaphil & all-free & clear for your laundry. And no fabric softeners! an underactive thyroid and certain oral medications can also trigger dry skin. If no better, see your general doctor.

Dry skin care: Treatment is important to avoid cracks, fissures, and dermatitis on the long term which can lead to accelerated wrinkle formation. Lifestyle changes such as increasing water intake, wearing cotton clothes, and using a humidifier. Moisturizers are essential after bath when skin is still moist. Recommend using the apple-phloretin hydrator and cosmo-e body cream from cosmo grade professional skincare.
