From exfoliating to cleansing, it is good to exfoliate your skin so as to get rid of dead skin cells and renew skin cell growth. Nourish your skin with body lotions that contain natural ingredients such as coconut oil, shea butter, etc that add deep moisture to your skin. Also moisturize your face regularly and apply lip balm to prevent chapped lips.
