Question: Suggest some good moisturizer to get rid of dry skin

2 Answers
Answer: Hormonal changes rob skin of oil and elasticity in some women, which leads to that dreaded dryness. What you can do about itWash up. Cleaning your face regularly gets rid of dead skin cells that can contribute to a feeling of dryness. Try a “non-soap” cleanser like Cetaphil or Aquanil — which are less likely to irritate and dry out your skin — and avoid deodorant soaps, which contain ingredients that soak up moisture. Use it no more than once a day (at night if you’re removing makeup); otherwise rinse your face with water. Lightly pat your skin dry with a soft towel.Don’t steam. Although it may seem to make sense, don’t steam your skin — it removes your skin’s natural oils, making it dry and itchy. That also means you should limit showers or baths to ten to 15 minutes in lukewarm (not hot) water.Add bath oils to your tub. Just be careful with the slippery surface you’ve created. (Remember, you’re a klutz with a giant belly right now.)Seal it in. Apply moisturizer right after you clean your skin (including after you wash your hands) to seal in the water before it has a chance to escape, especially in cold or windy weather. Reapply frequently throughout the day and again before turning in at night (how about a bedtime moisture massage from your man?). Unscented products are best, since most dry skin is also sensitive skin – especially when you’re expecting. Try petroleum jelly or A&D ointment on problem areas (elbows, knees, heels) to heal very dry skin. Mask it. Treat skin to a hydrating facial mask once a week to give your skin an extra boost of moisture.Protect yourself. Wear a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 every day to protect your extra-sensitive skin.Eat well. When it comes to your skin, you definitely are what you eat — so be sure to include good fats in your diet (mono and polyunsaturated), which are found in foods such as olive and canola oils, nuts, and avocados.Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water (soda and coffee don’t count) throughout the day to keep skin moist.Use a humidifier. Turn it on at night to boost the moisture content in your bedroom. (Hidden bonus: The white noise might help you sleep if you’ve been tossing and turning.)
