Cause Of Dry & Sensitive Skin Problem
- Dry Air When humidity levels drop, so does the amount of moisture in the skin.
- Hot Showers Hot water breaks down the lipid barriers in the skin
- Harsh Skin Care Heavily fragranced, antibacterial, and standard soaps with high pH levels all remove oil from your skin’s surface and dry it out.
- Dehydration Water keeps our cells plump and healthy and if you’re not drinking enough, your skin becomes dehydrated, causing a shriveled, dried-out complexion.
- Aging As women grow older, their epidermis thins and becomes more fragile, making it difficult for the skin to retain moisture.
- Hormones Estrogen levels begin to drop, particularly during menopause. Estrogen is an essential hormone for the maintenance of healthy skin and low levels of this hormone impair the production of the skin’s oils.
- Medical Conditions A number of medical conditions can result in dry skin and require consultation from a doctor, including:
- Psoriasis An autoimmune disease that causes the rapid buildup of rough, dry, dead skin that form thick scales. Atopic Dermatitis
- Eczema A chronic inflammation of the skin marked by dryness and rashes.
- Hypothyroidism Low levels of thyroid hormones can reduce the amount of oils the skin produces. This sometimes affects pregnant women.
