Dry skin is very common among Malaysians, especially in this hot tropical weather and the prolonged exposure to cold air from the air conditioners. Typically, dry skin is a condition that causes small fine flakes, cracking on the surface of the skin, dry patches and even redness. Dry skin can also cause oily skin and wrinkles as well. It is hard to resist scratching because dry skin also causes itchiness. Dry skin happens due to lack of water in the epidermis layer of the skin and is common for men and women of all ages, especially elderly individuals due to the reduced amounts of natural skin oils, lubricants and components that hold water in their skin layer as they grow older. Individuals who has the history of eczema are also more prone to dry skin. Other skin dryness cases may be caused by infections or wounds and recovering rashes.
Environment, weather and climates, including humidity and temperature can also affect the moisture retention and dehydrate the skin. But don’t forget, our own actions and skincare routines can be one of the factors of skin dryness. Just like excessive bathing, washing and showering with soaps. Although it seems like we are adding water to the skin when we bath, the water easily evaporated after each session and the scrubbing of soaps removes skin’s natural oil, causing dry skin. If you feel your skin is overly tighten after showering, chances are your skin may be losing excess water and natural skin oils. Other factors include the usage of skincare products that may not be suitable for your skin and some medications may cause the side effect or allergies of dry skin as well. Even the materials of your clothing can cause dry skin, like wool and fleece. Because dry skin is so common, many would try to find the solutions, from home remedies to over-the-counter ointments but how effective and long lasting are these solutions?
