Dry skin needs to be cared for and washed often, but gently. When washing your face, make sure you never use hot water. The deposits in the water are too drying. Adding moisturizer after cleansing your face will help make your dry skin look better. When you wash your face, you should use a soap to care for your skin that is specifically formulated for dry skin.
