Drink plenty of water and soak in water, too. Avoid long, hot showers (use warm water) or strong-scented and drying soaps. Use bar soaps that are considered beauty bars that contain Lanolin, cocoa butter or coconut oil. When soaking in the tub, add a cup or two of Aveeno (or grind your own oatmeal to use) or add some powdered milk. Afterward, apply baby oil to your skin to lock in moisture. And speaking of water, run a humidifier to add moisture to the air and your skin, too.
Look for wipes that contain Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. They can be a quick way to clean your face before you head out or when you first get back home. Use the wipes to remove makeup, too.
Add essential oil for scent if desired. Apply to skin. A little goes a long way, so don’t apply a lot. Other oils that work well are Jojoba, avocado, coconut, primrose, vitamin E, almond and emu.
Scrub your skin to slough off dead skin. Apply a facial mask to cleanse, tone and soften your skin. Soak your feet in a footbath with Epsom salts or a cup of apple cider vinegar, and use a pedicure paddle and then moisturize. Exfoliate hands with a salt scrub or use a home paraffin spa to soften them. Then add moisturizer.
