Why do I have dry skin?
Many of us suffer with dry skin every day, and although it’s usually harmless, it can be uncomfortable and irritating. When you suffer with dry skin, you may also notice that your skin can feel tight, rough, or itchy. Some of the most common causes of dry skin include:
- Weather, e.g. cold, dry, or windy weather conditions
- Dry skin conditions, e.g. eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis
- Irritants, e.g. soaps, detergents, cleaning products
- Dry environments, e.g. air conditioned or heated rooms
How will Calendula cream help to moisturise my dry skin?
Calendula Cream is made from the Calendula plant, an herbal remedy which is also known as the Marigold. This ingredient is traditionally used to nourish and protect your skin, moisturising and soothing dry, chapped skin.
