It is very important to keep the skin moisturised – this helps to strengthen the skin’s lipid balance which in turn prevents moisture loss and dry skin. Dry skin (sometimes also called “xerosis” or “xeroderma”) can be caused by many factors, normally external such as sun exposure, inclement weather, topical products such as soaps or handwashes or even bathing too often.
Dry skin presents as itchiness, scaling and skin flaking. It can vary in severity and become very painful for some sufferers. To try to restore the moisture balance and prevent any further dry skin episodes, lifestyle changes may be needed as well as treatment with topical treatments such as peptide creams.
