DRY SKIN

People may experience dry skin on their face, hands, arms, and legs due to many factors, including aging, temperature changes or humidity, lifestyle changes, using soaps, harsh chemicals, and skin conditions, such as eczema.

What is Dry Skin? 

Dry skin is skin that doesn’t have enough moisture to keep it feeling soft and supple. People facing dry skin may have rough-feeling patches that flake off or look scaly, and it may or may not be itchy. Severe dry skin may crack and bleed.

What leads to dry skin?

Certain people have a higher risk of developing dehydrated skin than others. Let's talk about different factors causing dryness of your skin:

  • Age factor: With age, the skin produces less sebum, which is an oil that keeps skin soft and youthful; by the age of 40, the production percentage of sebum decreases dramatically, and after 40, this percentage of skin's sebum keeps dropping continuously.
  • Using water continuously: An activity or job that requires you to frequently expose your hands or your body to water throughout the day can strip your skin of its protective layer.
  • Harsh detergents or soaps: Soaps, shampoos, and detergents are made to get rid of oil on your skin and body, which is means they can also dry it out by stripping out all the moisture.
  • The chlorine in pools: Chlorine, a chemical that keeps some pools clean but can dry out your skin as well.
  • Water, Vitamin, or Mineral deficiency: Skin requires nutrients to keep it healthy. If you’re not drinking enough water and getting vitamin D, vitamin A, niacin, zinc, or iron, you expose your skin and body to dehydration.
  • Sun exposure: has a big impact on skin dryness, do not forget to use a highest sunscreen SPF to keep your skin safe and hydrated.
  • Climate: Research and studies show a significant relationship between the low outdoor temperature and excessive skin dryness because when outdoor temperatures fall, the air holds less moisture. Also, people who live in dry, desert-like environments are more prone to dry skin because there is less moisture, or humidity, in the air.
  • Smoking: Cigarettes contain harmful chemicals that speed up the symptoms of premature aging on the skin and lead to its dryness (Nicotine reduces blood flow, which dries out skin).
  • Skin conditions and some other diseases: Some skin conditions that affect the skin, including atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, perioral dermatitis, psoriasis, and seborrheic dermatitis, and diseases like, Diabetes, thyroid disease, or kidney disease, can cause dehydrated skin.
