Some more tips:
1. Cleansing is the most important step in maintaining a healthy skin type. Washing off all the dirt and impurities helps get rid of dead cells and keeps your skin supple and soft.
2. Moisturising your skin often will give it the required nourishment and keep it well moisturised. Be sure to use a mild lotion rather than something harsh and packed with chemicals.
3. Keep in touch with your dermatology doctor, as any change in soap, lotion or cleanser could lead to a skin reaction, which is something you would not want. Always take professional advice while changing your skin care products to keep acne, allergies and other breakouts at bay.
