Skincare for Dry Skin: The Background
Dry skin is a common skin condition that causes skin to crack, scale and itch. Dry skin occurs when skin loses moisture from its surface layer that then leads to cracks and feelings of tightness or itchiness. The tiny cracks that are present in dry skin also mean that irritants can get in, causing even further problems. As our skin's first and foremost job is to protect our body from the outside world, so little cracks are not particularly ideal.
In most cases it is not particularly serious, but without the proper skincare for dry skin it can become quite uncomfortable. If your dry skin is particularly bad and persistent, despite changes to your skincare routine, we recommend contacting your GP.
Skin can be naturally quite dry, but any skin type can be susceptible to dryness. There are many causes of dry skin that include things such as: weather, shower temperature, skin conditions or improper skincare for dry skin.
