The first thing to do would be sure to wear a sun protection factor 50+ every day and then invest in a good skin care range, such as Dermalogica - the Age Smart range is the richness. Ensure that you use a barrrier as one of the products. It would be worth getting a professional skin mapping done to identify the correct products for you.

Dry skin requires nourishing, exfoliating & polishing, drink plenty of fluids, daily cleanse & moisterise your skin, use products recommended for dry skin, your local salon will be able to regulate your skin you can maintan at home.

The skin first needs to be thoroughly examined to determine why the skin is dry? Sebum dry, moisture dry, hormones, environmental, etc. The skin then needs to be exfoliated to rid the surface layer of the cellular debris. (I prefer manual exfoliation via dermaplaning.) Chemical exfoliation can be administered, in addition to, or mechanical exfoliation/microdermabrasion.
Next, I would hydrate the skin with steam and apply a very moisturing and soothing masque.
I would definately follow up with the manual stimulation of facial massaging. This would also help with stimulating the sebaceous glands and facial muscles. I would end with additional massage of a hydrating serum, followed by a very rich moisturizing cream.

There are a number of treatments available for dry skin, some more 'high tec' than others and many very good, but it's important to start with the basics. Are you cleansing, toning and moisturising every day ? Are you using the correct products specifically for a dry skin. If it is very dry, you should supplement this with eye, neck and definately night cream. Professional regular Facials really do make a difference, as you will feel the moment you start having them. The facial massage included in a facial is so good for the skin in stimulating the Blood system (helps renew & nourish skin cells) and Lymphatic system (basically takes all the waste away and protects the body from infection). Muscles are toned which are important with a dry skin and the different elements included in a facial help to correct the skins PH balance, remove old skin cells, stimulate sebum and correct problems such as dryness.
Don't forget outside influences !. Are you in an air-conditioned office ?, do you spend time outside without protecting your skin with a protective moisturiser that contains a sunscreen ? and lastly are you drinking enough water?. Most of us don't, but it really does make a difference.
Hope this helps

Do your skin always was dry? What is your age? Lot of things can be done but firstly you need to nourish your body inside with vitamins and outside with a good ORGANIC SKIN CARE products.
We all apply a variety of products to our skin every day - make-up, cleanser, lotion, moisturiser, etc – many of these contain chemicals which are absorbed into the skin and can build up causing dryness and sensitivity. Regular massage is extremely beneficial to your skin as it improves blood supply and surface appearance. The improved blood flow gives an instant radiance, delivers nutrients to the skin, supports lymphatic drainage and can help bloating and puffy areas. You also can take natural supplement that give nourishment for skin such as: vit E, Cod Liver, Omega 3 etc.
TIP: squeeze a Vit E and apply to your face as a night moisturizer, it is great. Hope this helps:)

Clients very often feel that they have dry skin when their main issue is poor exfoliation.
gentle, daily exfoliation using a non detergent cleanser - look out for sodium laureth sulphate / SLS and avoid!
Massage a creamy cleanser , I use Image's Hydrating Vitamin C cleanser, gently into the skin for a minute or two and remove with a facecloth wrung out in warm water. Rinse and repeat.
This ensures there is no product left on the skin to irritate or dry it out.
The use of a serum containing Hyaluronic acid such as Hylagel - which I use, will help to bind in upto a 1000 times its own volume of water in the inner layers of the skin.
Then apply a moisturiser to prevent evaporation or Transepidermal Water Loss as we call it!
I use image's Hydrating Solar Defense SPF 30 as my moisturiser and broad spectrum sunscreen and Skinceuticals Face Balm at night
The use of an Enzyme based mask a couple of time a week such as image's Vitamin C Enzyme Mask will gently digest the uppermost "dead" layer of skin whilst infusing Vitamin C to strengthen the skin and hyaluronic acid to further bind water into the skin's layers.
Drink pleanty of fluids daily and take a fish oild supplement plus zinc and vitamin C - after all your skin is an organ and not just your face.

Dry skin can be problematic but not permanent! Get a skin analysis at a good clinic, to find out if you are lacking in oil or water (dry or dehydrated skin). Look at your diet and get plenty of fluids, use a nourishing moisturiser especially at night, such as SkinScription HydroPlenish which will balance and hydrate without making skin greasy.

You simply need a creamy based cleanser and moisturiser with spf for day and rich night cream for at night. A weekly exfoliation and nourishing face masque intended for dry skin will also help. Visit your local Beauty Therapist once a month for a Facial to extend the benefits.

Make sure you hydrate your body with plenty of water. Then exfoliate regularly with a product recomended by your skin professional. Then moisturise daily. Regular facials and a good professional product will help alliviate your skins distress.

There is a simple 2-step system out there called Beaute From Earth that addresses your exact problem. I suggest you look them up. They have a product called "Moist" that does wonders for your face and "Body Silk" for your body. Other products for dry skin are available as well. The owner is readily available to help you if you have questions, so don't hesitate to contact them.

Dry skin on the face can be due to many factors, your cleanser could be too harsh, skin is acid so your cleanser must be at least 5.5ph anything higher will strip the skin of it's natural oil. the weather can dry the water out of your skin, so using products like barrier repair by dermalogica, can protect the skin from water loss.
exfoliating the skin, getting rid of dead skin cells allows products to penetrate the skin and smooths the skin, microdermabrasion is an amazing treatment for this.
drinking more water and protecting your skin from the sun, also helps. The best advice I can give is see a good therapist and they will be able to advise you on your skin.
