Ward off dry skin

To keep skin moist and healthy: 1. Moisturize. Moisturizer seals skin to keep water from escaping. 2. Keep bath and shower time to 10 minutes or less. Turn the dial to warm, not hot. 3. Use cleansing creams or gentle skin cleansers and bath or shower gels with added moisturizers.
