Dharma shastras restrict Bramhacharis from applying perfumes and oils. Is it possible that Moisturiser is also restricted, and if yes, then is there any shastra advice for sweaty and dry skin bramhacharis what should they do if they have to avoid the sin of applying cosmetics.

    "what is remedy for sweaty and dry skin...what should they do" -- sounds like personal advice question. – sv. Jan 6 '17 at 18:32

    @sv. Well I am not the only bramhachari, this is directed to the whole category of people living in bramhacharya ashrama phase. In anycase I have changed question language. – Yogi Jan 6 '17 at 19:38
  • @Yogi - You are correct this rule is given in puranas, but i think that is only for the brahmacharis who are living and studying in Guru-Kulas.Not 100% sure though. – SwiftPushkar Jan 7 '17 at 5:19

    You have basically 2 questions 1-Is using moisturizer prohibited for brahmacharis? and 2-then is there any shastra advice for sweaty and dry skin bramhacharis what should they do if they have to avoid the sin of applying cosmetics.? Although ur intent may be genuine both questions are seemingly not quite related to Hinduism(off-topic+ bit of personal advice) ..I voted for closure..How will a Dharma Shastra differentiate between a cosmetic(oil,perfumes) and a moisturizer?! – Rickross Jan 7 '17 at 5:30
