# 6 Easy Tips To Control Dry Skin
1 Always wash your face with mild soap-free face wash as soap would further strip your skin of natural oil.
2 Always use moisturiser during the day. Use upward,circular motion to massage the moisture lightly into your face.
3 You should always consider a night cream before going to bed at night. It is advisable to use a cream that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA). AHA’s are derived from milk,fruit and sugar cane. They greatly benefit complexions that look dull, dry or flaky and they give your skin a beautiful glow.

5 Hot water can dehydrate the skin.Wash with lukewarm water instead of hot water.
6.Treat seasonally dry sensitive skin with extra moisturization.
