Genetics - Dry skin can be inherited. Depending on your genetics, your sebum production and moisture regulation maybe disrupted causing dry skin.
Weather - Cold, heat, wind and dry heated air removes moisture and attacks natural protective barriers of the skin. Apply a moisturiser daily to help protect your skin.
Hot Water - Changes in temperature can strip moisture from the skin. So make sure your showers are not too hot!
Stress - Stress and mental strain effects our hormones, which can upset our body’s moisture balance and oil production.
Skin Care - There are lots of products can be harsh on our skin’s moisture balance and cause dry skin (e.g. soap-based shower gels). Use these products sparingly, or try to use rehydrating cleansing products instead.
