Why is my skin dry?
Dry skin can be caused by many different health and environmental factors.
There are many elements in our environment that can cause dry skin. Variations in the weather can cause temperatures and humidity levels to drop, which can dry out the skin. Being around sources of heat, such as central heating, fireplaces and heaters, as well as spending extended periods of time in hot baths or showers can dry out the skin. Swimming in chlorinated pools and using harsh soaps can strip our skin of its natural oils, which can make it feel dry and irritated.
