To keep your skin moisturized, use a moisturizer. Your skin gets dry as a result of harsh soaps, long-term exposure to sunlight, poor weather, medical issues, direct contact with chemicals, and inadequate moisturization. Keep your skin moisturized by drinking enough water if you want to get rid of dry skin. Wash your skin with light soap and warm water. Exfoliate your skin on a regular basis with a nice scrub like this Honey Body scrub. Protect your skin from the sun by using sunscreen.
