Navin Taneja, director of the National Skin Centre, suggests how to keep the skin soft:

* Limit bath time: Hot water and long showers remove oils from your skin so, limit your shower time and use lukewarm water.

* Avoid strong soaps: Use mild cleansers to avoid dryness.

* Shave carefully: To protect and lubricate your skin, apply cream, lotion or gel before shaving. Use a clean and sharp razor.

* Pat dry: After bathing, gently pat your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture is retained.

* Moisturize dry skin: Find a moisturizer that suits your skin type and makes your skin feel soft.
