London: Actress Courteney Cox who suffers from dry skin has advised people to deal with the problem in a new lifestyle blog.

"I have the dryest skin!!! I know I need to drink more water, but until then another thing that really helps is to take a loofah or a thistle brush," quoted her as saying.

"Use it on dry skin before you get in the shower. I brush upwards and it hurts. Then I shower. While I`m still wet I put on almond oil - Aura Cacia Sweet Almond. Don`t rub it off with your towel, just pat your skin or let it dry naturally," she said.

Cox also recommends a body oil by Pure Fiji but warns it can ruin silk shirts if people aren`t careful.

"If you`re crazy dry, then put on another cream or oil. I happen to be a coconut nut, so I use Pure Fiji coconut milk and honey. Yes, you will be pretty oily for a bit, but if you have the time to let it soak in, you`ll feel great. Just watch out when you`re wearing silk shirts!"
