SKINCARE

Whether it’s the colder months taking their toll or your skincare routine needing a refresh, dry skin is a common skin complaint. If your skin could do with a little TLC right now, here’s how you can spot and soothe unwanted cracked heels and dried-out complexions...

What causes dry skin?

Dry skin is more common in the winter and you can read more about that in our article, How to Keep Skin Hydrated in Cold Weather. It's not just the cold though, for instance, hot and humid environments can draw moisture away from the skin leaving it gasping. Dehydration, poor nutrition and irritants can all also cause your skin to become dry or scaly. Over time, skin loses its ability to retain water, so you may find skin appears thinner and less pump simply from getting older, too. Irritants can even include soaps and body washes that contain certain ingredients more likely to strip moisture from your skin, so it’s important to be aware of what you’re putting on your face and body to keep it at its most hydrated.

How do I treat dry skin on the face?

When you’re trying to combat dry skin, you need the best moisturisers you can find in your arsenal – or bathroom cabinet. Regularly moisturising not only helps to reduce patches of existing dry skin but also discourages new ones from forming. You can find out more information about further products such as serums for dry skin in our article, How to Hydrate Dry Skin.

What About The Rest Of The Body?

As well as the face, dry skin most frequently occurs on the hands, feet, knees and elbows – generally, the areas of your body that are most exposed to the elements. Cracked heels and dry skin on the feet are also common because of daily wear and tear – whether that’s ill-fitting shoes or standing for too long – and also because you have fewer oil glands here than around the rest of the body.
