Dry skin is characterised by a lack of moisture and natural oils in the epidermis and can cause scaling, itching and fine lines. Dryness is usually related to a skin barrier issue that allows excess moisture to escape. This issue is referred to as increased transepidermal water loss.
The main causes of dry skin are:
Winter weather: Cold temperatures and low humidity can dehydrate skin.
Aging: Hormone levels change as we age, leading to a decrease in sebum (oil) production and an increase in transepidermal water loss.
Genetics: Some individuals produce less sebum, causing them to have drier skin than others.
Hot showers: The longer you stay in the steamy shower, the more you dry out your skin. Five-minute is an ideal length of time.
Excessive exposure to water and harsh soaps: Frequent washing robs skin of moisture and many soaps strip skin of its natural oils.
The sun: Unprotected UV ray exposure disrupts the skin’s ability to balance moisture levels.
