What causes dry skin?
Dry skin is caused when the natural oils on the skin have been stripped away, exposing it to environmental elements more, causing it to lose moisture. Skin ageing is also a natural cause of ageing. When the temperature drops, this causes the air to become drier, which in turn dries out the skin, but also when it is hotter outside, essential skin moisture is more likely to evaporate. Hot steamy showers can also dry out the natural oils on the skin, so a quick and cool cleanse is recommended.
