Courteney Cox suffers with dry skin.

The 'Scream 4' actress admits she is partly to blame for the Common problem as she doesn't drink enough water but Courteney - who recently joined website xoJane.com as the new beauty columnist - has come up with some ways to deal with it.

In her blog, she said: "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.

"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."

Courteney also recommends a body oil by Pure Fiji but warns it can ruin silk shirts if people aren't careful.

She said: "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!"
