Care For Dry Skin
Does your skin feel dry ?
Here are some simple tips that will be useful :
Dr Teja Kulkarni Use a mild soap to clean your skin.  If your skin feels ‘tight’ or ‘stretched’ after using a soap or face wash or shower gel, don’t use it.  You might want to try a cleansing lotion instead.  Nowadays, there are cleansing bars available (syndets, not soap bars) that may suit your skin.  They are pH balanced.
Dr Teja Kulkarni Pat dry your skin rather than rubbing or wiping it dry
Dr Teja Kulkarni Use your moisturizer immediately on patting dry your skin. That way, its effect will last longer.  When you need to reapply your moisturizer, wet your skin, pat it dry, then reapply.
Dr Teja Kulkarni Protect your skin from harmful solar radiation.
