Dry skin can occur at any part of the body, causing discomfort, itchiness and sometimes even redness. But why does dry skin happen? Your daily routines might be the cause of your dry skin concerns! Refining your lifestyle and incorporating moisturising products can help soothe irritated skin and repair dry skin. After all, hydration is key! Now, let’s look at some reasons why your skin might be feeling dry:
Reason 1: Hand Sanitisers
We’ve finally shifted to an endemic stage of COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean you should slack in your hygiene game. Keep it up with hand sanitisers everywhere you go and antibacterial products to protect yourself and your loved ones. But what is protecting your skin from dryness? Hand sanitisers and antibacterial products are harsh on your skin because they strip away the natural oils and moisture from your skin. Apply a moisturising hand cream after hand sanitisers and opt for a body wash that thoroughly cleanses without the dryness much like Rosken’s Dry Skin Wash.
Reason 2: Coffee
Did you know coffee can be the cause of dry skin? Gasp! Coffee contains caffeine, a mild diuretic that dehydrates your body, making your skin look dull, tired and aged. You can still depend on your cup of coffee for that much needed boost, but let’s cap it just 1-2 cups a day and increase your water intake to rehydrate your body. That way, you can achieve moisturised skin from within and still get that drive from all the caffeine.
Reason 3: Skin Conditions
Has your skin always been on the drier spectrum? Does the dryness come with scales, redness, tightness or itchiness? These dry skin symptoms may indicate skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. Take action before your skin dries out any further, or else it could crack and increase the risk of infection. Seek professional diagnosis from a professional and manage your dry skin with a moisturiser free from fragrances and harsh detergents to prevent further irritation.
Reason 4: Age
As you grow older, less natural oils are produced by the skin. As a result, your skin will tend to become drier, making space for wrinkles and fine lines to settle in. Sun damage may add to the effect, leaving your skin looking dull and aged. Let’s not let future ‘you’ look like this! Prevent premature ageing from UV rays with daily application of sunscreen and nourish your skin with supple moisture to prevent dry skin. You know how the saying goes, prevention is better than cure! Incorporate Vitamin E in your skincare ritual and benefit from its anti-aging properties with Rosken Skin Repair Dry Skin Lotion.
Reason 5: Air-Conditioning
In hot and humid tropical weather, air-conditioning is an escape from the heat. The cooling air feels nice, but it pulls away moisture from your skin making it feel dry, tight and itchy. How can something so cool not be cool? To combat the uncomfortable skin tightness in an air-conditioned area, drink plenty of water and apply a moisturising hand cream such as Rosken’s Dry Skin Cream, which can be used on the face, hand and body. This way, you can put your dry skin concerns to rest.
Dry skin can be stressful and uncomfortable, especially when it comes with tightness and itchiness. If left unmanaged, it may even lead to eczema, which is more brutal and troublesome to treat. Hydration is crucial to a skin’s barrier in order for it to effectively repair itself, so care for it right with proper moisturisation. Luckily, Rosken Skin Repair Specialist has a variety of products specially formulated to soothe irritated skin and repair dry skin in 30 minutes!
