Dry skin, also referred to as Xerosis, is a common problem for many people. Skin care for dry skin requires moisture in order to maintain the skin's smoothness and suppleness and especially during winter, this can be particularly difficult. In addition, adequate moisture in the skin is important in maintaining the pH balance of your skin.
During winter, people prone to dry skin, need to be particularly alert and aware of the factors that contribute to drying of their skin. For example, in our attempt to keep warm, we use central heating in the home, heat the car and of course the office. This all contributes to drying out of the skin and the potential to develop skin problems such as eczema or dermatitis.
To counter act dry skin, adequate fluid intake become very important as the dehydrating effect of heating needs to be over come and loss of moisture needs to be replaced.
