Dry skin may occur on any part of your body. It is frequently a sign of eczema. The most common symptoms include flaking, itching, and cracks in the skin.
Dry skin can be improved by changes in diet, nutritional supplements, and also the use of specially formulated soaps and moisturizers. A dermatologist should provide you with a complete skin care program and instruct you in the proper care of your dry skin.
Winter weather can leave your face red and irritated, even in Southern California. Your warm weather skin care products can actually make your skin look and feel worse in winter.
If your face is uncomfortably dry, avoid using harsh treatments, drying masks, and alcohol-based toners or astringents, all of which can strip vital oil from your skin. Use products that hydrate and help skin retain moisture.
You should also consider a chemical or other peel to get rid of old, dead skin, leaving new, regenerated skin that can absorb your moisturizers and leave you with a rosy glow.
