Dry skin is a very common skin problem. The condition worsens during winters. In many cases we also find people with normal skin even suffer from dry skin in winter.
What is Dry Skin?
In case of dry skin the normally fine lines in skin become more visible. Further the skin feels rough, looks dull and flaky. In winters one might even suffer from dry skin rash, skin crack, or even itchy dry skin too. It can occur anywhere in the body starting from the face to the toes. Skin cracks usually take place at toes and hands.
Dry skin basically occurs when the skin loses its water content as well as the layer of protective dead skin cell along with the natural oils.
How to treat and prevent dry skin?
Many think that applying water to the skin prevents dry skin. However this is a wrong concept. In fact it can further worsen the condition by removing the present oils too.
In case of dry itchy skin or dry skin rash one should consult a dermatologist. In normal cases dry skin treatment only requires the day to day used products and no medications.
