Feeling comfortable in your skin comes down to one simple resolution: understanding your skin type.

Take dry skin, for instance. It makes no sense to use a mattifying body cream on dry skin – your body will feel taut and may even flake.
Dry skin is identified by itchiness, tautness and an ashy appearance. But did you know that despite having dry skin, you can still achieve a radiant glow? Try these dry skin tips and feel the difference! 

Dry Skin Tip 1: Moisturise While Still Damp

Damp skin absorbs moisture more efficiently. Applying a cream to damp skin seals in the moisture for a longer time, leaving you with a natural glow that lasts all day.  

Dry Skin Tip 2: Use a Specific Body Cream

Body creams and lotions for dry skin generally have a thicker consistency compared to regular lotions. When shopping for a lotion, look for keywords such as “hydrating”, “moisturising” and “dry skin rescue” on the bottle which are best suited for dry skin. Try out the Vaseline Extremely Dry Skin Rescue Body Cream , which delivers deep moisturisation to help heal dry skin in just five days.

Dry Skin Tip 3: Moisturise Hands After Washing 

You wouldn’t wash your face without applying a moisturiser afterwards, right? The same applies to your hands. Washing your hands with soap can leave them drier than usual. That is why you should always keep a hand cream in your bag. Vaseline Clinical Care Extremely Dry Skin Rescue Hand Cream provides immediate relief for dry hands while strengthening the skin’s barrier.

Dry Skin Tip 4: Use Petroleum Jelly

Vaseline Blue Seal is clinically proven to help heal dry skin. It also protects minor cuts from further aggravation, can be used on any part of the body and is ideal for sensitive skin types too. 

Follow these tips to say goodbye to rough, flaky skin and say hello to smooth, nourished skin.
