■ Never have very hot showers or baths, as they strip the skin of essential natural oils and moisture. ■ Don’t overheat in bed. Sleep with enough covers and pull up another layer only if necessary. Why? If you’re too hot, your body tries to cool down by perspiring and the end result is a restless night’s sleep and possible skin irritation. ■ Stop using soaps and cleansers that leave your skin feeling tight. Switch to a gentler option.
