Dry skin can affect anyone but there are four main factors that can cause it, these are: age, medical history, season and/or bathing habits. The older adults are more likely to develop dry skin, this is because your skin starts to produce less oil (sebum) which raises the risk of dry skin if you do not moisturise. Medical history can make you more prone to eczema or just dry skin if you have a history of these conditions or if family members have it. Dry skin is common during the autumn and winter seasons as the air temperature starts to drop therefore your skin will start to dry out. If you have a shower, bath or wash your face with hot water your skin will become dry as it is taking all the hydration out of your skin.
Things you can try to help stop dry skin are:
avoid using very hot water in showers or baths
keep your shower time under 10 minutes
Use moisturising soap/body wash
apply moisturiser every day, especially straight after a shower, bath or washing your face
