Dry or mature


The dry skin comes in two varieties, but it can also arise due to the natural aging process. Dry skin can be from skin that is naturally dry, no matter where you live, and then there is dry skin that comes from living in a dry environment. Women who live in desert regions, for example, will naturally struggle with dry skin more often than females that live in humid climates. Some women will have dry skin even if they live in the most humid regions of the world. This just means that their skin is not capable of holding onto the moisture that it naturally creates, and needs moisture applied topically.

Dry skin is characterized by an over-tight, uncomfortable feeling, often accompanied by flaking, cracked, or red skin. When skin becomes dry, it becomes very textured, revealing every fold and crevice of the skin. Even if the skin is not wrinkled, it can look wrinkled, just because it does not have adequate moisture. Dry skin can become painful and can even exacerbate certain skin conditions of the skin is not properly moisturized. Dry skin occurs when the cells in the skin cannot hold onto the sebum to skin naturally creates or when the skin does not produce enough sebum. Sebum is the oil that contributes to acne, but it is also the oil that keeps our skin looking fresh and young. Cells in normal skin collect and hold this moisture, while cells in dry skin cannot perform the same function, or rather, there is not enough moisture in the skin for the cells to collect and utilize.

Dry skin is most common on the face, hands, elbows, and knees, though it can occur anywhere on the body. It is common for most women to have some dry skin from time to time, due to exposure to the elements, or after a shower or bath, but women with an actual dry skin type will have dry skin all the time, sometimes even after they have moisturized the skin.

Dry skin is most common after adolescence and after early adulthood, as the skin begins to mature. In our youth, we often produce far too much sebum, blocking pores and creating an oily sheen. After this period of too much moisture, your complexion might provide too little. Also, as the skin ages, it is less able to produce the sebum it needs, which may result in dry, dull skin.
The first thing to do is stop using soap that zaps moisture from the skin. This is a common theme in commercials, but it is a scientific fact that many brands of soaps leech moisture away from the skin, without replacing it. Pick a cleanser that is fruit based or contains hyaluronic acid, which provides hydration while cleaning the skin. Find a moisturizer that contains the world's best moisturizing ingredients, derived from fruit, to help restore the ability to hold moisture better.
