"Moisturize with your favorite OTC moisturizer: Aveeno, Lubriderm, Curel, Kiehl's WHILE YOU'RE WET IN THE SHOWER, then towel off. The moisturizer will trap water on the surface of your skin and drive it in. This should be put on any time EXCEPT after the shower as it can sting a little if used right after a shower.
