Top tips for taking care of dry skin across life stages:

  • Moisturise frequently to replace the reduced amount of natural oils in aging skin & limit overuse of soaps or hot baths that could further dry the skin
  • Moisturise more frequently if you take medication which can dry out the skin
  • Use products which are non-greasy, fast absorbing and that do no leave white marks on darker skin tones
  • Use a soap substitute for hand washing and apply hand cream straight after.
  • Use broad spectrum sun protection with SPF 30 to help prevent skin drying out in older age and the signs of aging.
