Common Causes of Dry Skin

Dry skin is usually attributed to the malfunction of oil glands in the pores. There are several ways that our oil glands can malfunction and stop producing enough oil to keep our skin soft, including:

  1. Our Diet – what we eat can affect the way our skin looks quite dramatically. This is because our skins are there to help detoxify any excess waste that the liver and kidneys can’t manage. The more load we put on our skins, the more chance of either too dry or too oily skin. Eating a balanced diet will start to remedy acne, as well as how our skin functions.
  2. Infections – a skin infection can dry the skin out. This is why one should limit the number of times one touches their face in the day and wash their hands before they do to avoid any infections.
  3. Allergies – allergic reactions can produce dry skin and skin irritations. Make sure there isn’t anything in your vicinity that you are allergic to.
  4. Dehydration – If you are severely dehydrated, you might suffer from having dry skin. Drink as much water each day as possible if you don’t already drink your 6-8 glasses per day.
  5. Chemicals – chemicals can dry out the skin and cause rashes or burning. Read the section below to discern if you have any chemicals in your present moisturizer giving you a reaction.
