When washing your face avoid hot water, hot water removes all the natural oils in your skin that help to keep it hydrated. Exfoliate once a week with a gentle exfoliator, avoid salt and sugar scrubs instead use something with oatmeal as it's main ingredient. Moisturise with rich moisturizers like thick creams, a quick fix is virgin coconut oil. While bathing keep the temperature cool and limit your baths to once a day for max 5 to 10 minutes. For your diet eat more omega-3 fats and drinks lots of water.
