Mar 13, 2008
Skin is the natural treasure for all of us. All of us at the same time like to have a skin that is healthy and problem free. However, the wish of having trouble free skin is often hindered due to the process of external and internal misbalance of environment as a whole. The outcome is that we often face ourselves with plenty of troubles centering round our skin. None of the skin texture is free from trouble on the whole, may the degree vary, but every one is the victim of any kind of trouble that is unavoidable. Like for example, both oily skin and dry skins are trouble some and involve different kinds of care. On the other hand, a person with normal skin is somehow blesses as troubles hitting the normal skin are invariably less in number.

Dry skin is a state of lack of sebum or oil in the skin. This type of skin is highly sensitive and often lacks the minimum quantity of moisture. It easily gets dull and become lifeless with the over exposure in the sun. The situation becomes even graver with every wash as it loses the remaining moisture to make the things worse only. The dry skin only heightens up with the rough and cold wind, extreme temperature, whether hot or cold and also staying in the air conditioning system for long can affect the same. The skin pores become tight and it feels cracked and chapped to touch. The causes of dry skin are many in reality. The immediate cause of the dryness of skin is the lack of lubricant supply to the skin by the oil glands. Consequently it becomes dehydrated and lacks the minimum quantity of moisture. Dry skin can also be hereditary.

Lack of proper nutrients in the regular diet, intake of excessive rough foods can be the reasons of dry skin. Apart from these general causes, there are some other reasons too. Like, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis can lead to the dry skin troubles. No only, an outcome of these conditions, but also it can generate several other diseases too. It can initiate underactive thyroid. The excessive dry skin can be dangerous for those having diabetes.

Taking due care of the dry skin is very important. If avoided for long, it can generate serious complexities. Washing face with cold water is essential and avoid washing with hot water. Dry skin needs a gentle skin cleansing. Try to moisten your skin with any reputed brand of moisturizer and keep away from the detergents as much as possible. Neutral pH products are the best for the dry skin solutions. In addition with this, massage your body gently with any baby oil and any home-made nourishing cream. Alkaline soaps can be dangerous and harmful for the dry skin, so avoid using it thoroughly. Finally, the milk products help a lot in the care of dry skin on the whole. A healthy and well balanced life is the most important precondition to fight the dry skin trouble.
