Use a salt scrub on your dry skin before you turn on the shower. Look for a formula that contains oil. When you rinse the scrub, leave on some of the oil. After your shower, apply lotion while your skin is still damp to trap the moisture.

Skip fabric softener and dryer sheets; they contain chemicals and fragrances that can make your skin feel dry and itchy. Switch to a fragrance-free laundry detergent and—unless you've been cleaning a pigsty—use only half the recommended amount. Your clothes don't get that dirty.
