Dry Skin Care

Dry skin has a dry parched appearance and has a tendency to flake easily. It is prone to wrinkles and lines. Dry skin is delicate and dry with a tendency to scaling on the cheeks. Dry skin needs plenty of thorough but gentle cleansing, regular stimulation with massage and generous quantities of moisture. It also needs extra careful protection.

Dry skin lacks suppleness and therefore it feels taut after washing. The pores are not visible as there is an insufficient amount of secretion from the sebaceous glands. Constant protection is very important. It needs a moisturiser during the day and a good cream at night.


  • Environmental conditions- exposure to sun, dry weather, use of harsh and strong soaps.
  • Nutritional deficiencies- poor diet deficient in vitamin A and B. less intake of fluids also result in dry skin
  • Genetic factors
  • Low sebum level
  • Various skin problems like eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis


A daily routine facial includes three basic steps of cleansing, massage and a face pack. Dry skin needs lot of care. To avoid further dryness the skin should be washed with mineral water as tap water has many mineral deposits that cause dryness.
