How to Avoid Dry Skin
- Drink at least eight glasses of water a day to keep your skin hydrated.
- During the winter, take short showers instead of long baths, which can zap your skin of its natural moisture.
- Try this simple trick for dry hands: before you go to bed, cover your hands with a rich, creamy lotion and then put on a pair of cotton gloves. Leave them on overnight - you'll wake up with super smooth hands!
