Itchy dry skin is one of the most common conditions which affects most of us at some point in our lives. The condition is often temporary, as well as seasonal.
Signs and symptoms of dry skin vary based on a number of factors. These include age, the weather, skin tone and sun exposure to name a few. Common symptoms include: flaking skin by the nose, flaking skin on the eyelids, tight skin, itchiness, as well as fine lines and cracks.
Dry skin becomes more common as we age. With age, our skin loses the ability to trap and bind water, and the amount of oil our skin produces decreases.¹
Many people experience dryness during winter. This is because winter air is often dryer, and indoor fires and heating systems additionally contribute to skin moisture loss. On the other hand, in summer those who spend a lot of the season indoors may also experience dryness. This results from exposure to the dry air that comes from air conditioning units.
Excessive exposure to water can also cause dryness, especially hot water. This is because hot water can strip away the skin’s natural oils, leading to dry skin itching.
Similarly, chemicals can also cause skin dryness. For example, swimmers who are often exposed to chlorine, or regular hand washers and those who regularly use hand sanitiser, risk irritating the skin and stripping natural oils.
Skin dryness can also arise as a result of medical conditions such as eczema, and psoriasis.²
