Therefore, it is very important to cleanse dry skin, while it should be borne in mind that it is easily delayed.
Cosmetologists recommend washing with cold water with dry skin or using toilet milk. It is allowed, instead of milk, to use fat soap – for example, lanolin, and even better – soap cream. Also, instead of soap, shaving soap creams are suitable.
For washing it will be useful to add a little apple cider vinegar or boric acid to the water (half a spoon on a glass of water).
The decoctions of calendula, trenches, aloe, alte, chamomile, peppermint, linen seeds are very good for washing dry skin. They are prepared like this: a tablespoon of grass is poured with a glass of boiling water and insisted for 15 minutes.

After the condition of the skin improves, it can be washed with a mixture of milk with water in a ratio of 2: 1.
