Dry and itchy skin can be frustrating, especially when it’s difficult to indicate why. The human body is almost 70% water so it may seem counterintuitive. After all, wet is the opposite of dry! In fact, too much exposure to water like long hot showers and baths strip away the skin’s natural oils, which leads to…you guessed it, DRY SKIN ☹
It’s extremely common and can occur in people of all ages and can pop up anywhere on the body. Dryness can be severe and is an indicator of an underlying skin issue or health condition.
Its general cause is lack of moisture, however, other factors such as weather and exposure to chemicals can play a part. Cold, dry air (air conditioning, cool climates/ winter) can suck the moisture out of your skin and intense heat (hot baths/showers, warm climates/summer) can not only damage the deeper epidermis but also cause peeling and dry patches. Exposure to chemicals like chlorine for example can affect swimmers.
In addition, as we are washing and sanitizing our hands more due to the protection against the COVID-19 pandemic, our skin becomes more irritated and stripped from its natural oils.
When we experience dry skin, our first instinct is to pile on moisturizer. Though it may seem like it’s helping, it’s just a temporary solution. Meeting with a dermatologist will help you get to the bottom of what is causing the dryness in the first place, you may be surprised by what you find!
Make sure to stay away from certain treatments for dry skin that can actually make it worse. With all the skincare trends and “TikTok” hacks projected on social media, these can actually be detrimental.
Don’t worry! Skin Laundry offers a variety of products that can aid your recovery from dry skin and give your skin the quench it needs:
