Tips for Relieving Dry Skin
Although dry skin is commonly associated with dry and cold climates, it can also affect those who are living in a hot and humid climate like Singapore. Hot weather causes the body to be more susceptible to dehydration and that's going to show on your skin!

To manage dry skin in our hot and humid weather, you must identify what's contributing to the lack of moisture. Being in air-conditioned environment for long hours, swimming, taking hot baths can result in your skin feeling dry.

Fear not, below are some tips that will help you manage your dry skin.
Keep your shower time short and use lukewarm water instead of hot water
Long, hot showers can strip your skin of its natural, oily protective barriers and cause your skin to lose moisture.
Use a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser like Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is a soap-free, fragrance-free cleanser that cleanses and soothes without stripping the skin of its natural protective oils.
Slather on the moisturiser immediately after gently drying your skin with a towel
Moisturising right after your shower helps to lock in the moisture on your skin. Do this moisturising step before the water evaporates off your skin, leaving your skin feeling dry.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream is a dermatologist-recommended formula that attracts and binds water to the skin, preventing moisture loss and providing long-lasting hydration.
Wear gloves when cleaning, doing laundry or coming in contact with chemical products
Dish-washing liquid washes the natural oils right off your hands just like how it's able to easily clean off the grease from your plates. If you find that you have to wash dishes regularly, either opt for a milder dishwashing liquid or use a pair of heavy duty gloves.
Use a cream or gel sunscreen
As sunscreen is essential to protect your delicate skin from sun damage and drying out further, we recommend a non-irritating, fragrance-free and moisturising formula like the Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defence SPF 50+.
