In brief: Moisturize/Hydrate

The treatment of dry skin includes the elimination of hot showers and soap.
Shower with luke warm water and keep them brief. Use a soap free cleanser (cetaphil, dove for sensitive skin, olay for sensitive skin), and after towel drying, apply an oil free, fragrance free moisturizer (cerave, eucerin, moisturel).
