It is a moisturizer designed to help your skin reach its full potential, by fighting dryness and keeping skin as hydrated as it needs to be.
Common Causes of Dry Skin
Dry skin has a number of causes. Winter weather is one common cause of dry skin, as the humidity in the air can be extremely low. This means that the air itself can naturally dry your skin out over time in the winter, unless you protect or regularly moisturize it.
Using soaps that clean but fail to moisten can also cause dry skin. Some soaps are harsh and
naturally suck moisture straight out of your skin. Instead, when buying soap, search for soap that
is designed to moisturize as it cleanses. Another cause of dry skin is excessively long or hot
showers. These can peel away the natural moisture from your skin, leaving you chapped, itchy
and irritated. Finally, dehydration can also be a factor in dry skin.
Ill Effects of Dry Skin
Symptoms of dry skin can range from annoying to dangerous. A feeling of tightness, itchiness, or discomfort in the skin are some of the most common symptoms, but are more or less mild. Dryness that goes untreated for longer periods of time can cause redness, flaking and peeling of the skin, and even bleeding, if the dry skin loses its elasticity and ruptures.
