How To Treat Dry Skin

Posted on June 22 2019

Tightness, itching, and flakiness – these are just a few of the undesirable symptoms we gals and guys with dry skin have to contend with every day.

But what if we told you it was possible to give your dry skin the boot so that you only ever have to put up with flakes in your soft serve cone? Well, now you can!

Whether you’re guilty of overzealous scrubbing or the central heating in your office has your skin feeling drier than a glass of Sauv Blanc, combating dry skin is simple with the right products.

Read on to find out what’s making your skin so thirsty and the best ways to treat dry skin.

What causes dry skin?

Dry skin can be caused by both internal and external factors, with external factors being the most common and easiest to treat (thank goodness!).

Internal causes of dry skin may include:

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Overall health
  • Skin or medical condition.

External causes of dry skin may include:

  • Cold temperatures
  • Low humidity
  • Air conditioning
  • Over-washing with harsh soaps
  • Overuse of sanitisers and cleaning agents that contain alcohol.

If your skin feels tight and itchy after showering, your skincare products may be removing too much of your skin’s natural oils.
