Skin Dryness on the Face


Dry skin on your face or on your body can be caused by aging, hormones, sun exposure, a compromised skin barrier function and environmental factors. Dry skin can itch, crack, flake and bleed, causing discomfort. Whether you have flaky skin or itchy skin, dermatologists recommend staying hydrated and topically applying moisture to your skin to help with skin dryness in favor of hydrated skin.

To combat dry flaky skin and replenish hydration, choose skin care products that soothe, strengthen, and moisturize the skin. Use a gentle cleanser, wear sunscreen, and apply moisturizer after washing your face. We also recommend exfoliating the skin to help remove dead skin cells and limit patches of dead skin. Promoting skin hydration and keeping your hydrated are not only beneficial for limiting dry facial skin, but can also benefit your body and lifestyle as a whole.

Talk to your doctor if you have concerns about severe dry skin, dehydrated skin, or a specific skin condition such as eczema. Your doctor can help answer questions about potential treatment options for your skin type, which could include hydrators, skin barrier function repair ingredients, and moisturizers to add to your skincare routine.
