How is Dry Skin caused?

If we can understand what causes dry skin, then we can work out how to prevent it from returning in the future. After all, its no good getting rid of dry skin for it to return later in life.


Some of the main reasons for dry skin is our exposure to dry weather conditions, hot water, and certain chemicals can help to cause our skin to dry out.


There can also be underlying medical conditions such as Dermatitis that can cause extremely dry skin, and under these circumstances, a visit to a dermatologist would be a good start to identifying the underlying problem.

How to Treat and Prevent Dry Skin

Remember we said hot water can help to cause dry skin. Well, reducing the amount of hot baths and showers can be a great start to reducing dry skin.

Try to keep the water lukewarm baths and showers but also, try to reduce the time spend in the water.

Another tip is to avoid excessive skin scrubbing which will only make the condition of your skin worse. By doing this, you are rubbing away the natural oils that protect the skin and it will make the skin even drier.

When washing, use a fragrance-free cleanser and only apply enough cleanser to wash the skin and avoid using too much which causes a lather.
