Dry Skin Treatments
Dry skin is a common condition, often running in families or developing with age. Other causes of skin dryness include cold weather, air conditioning, central heating, sitting close to the fire/ heater, too much bathing/ showering/ swimming, soap from detergents, friction. When dry skin is not treated, the cracked surface can develop an itchy condition called pruritus, and possibly also a rash (eczema). Dry skin should be hydrated with an oil-based moisturiser. A non-soap cleanser may also be helpful.
