Pro Tip: 
  1. Moisturizing is a must, but choosing a random product may not be helpful. So, pick up one that is specially formulated for your skin type. 
  2. Apply it on your wet skin. It can never be suggested to apply your favorite products on towel dried face. This will help lock in moisture. 
  3. Always wear a serum underneath the cream to make your hydration game on point.
  4. Skipping a good SPF is another mistake. It will make your dry face drier leading to premature aging.
  5. Always carry a hydrating face mist with you wherever you are. You can make your own mixing any hydrosols, aloe vera gel and honey.
