Are you irritated by dry skin? Discover the causes – and how to tackle it successfully.
Dry skin is a very common condition caused by a lack of water in the most superficial layer of the skin, the epidermis. This can leave your skin feeling tight, or itchy. Dry skin can affect both men and women, and the problem can increase with age. Dry skin is more common during the winter – as the temperature drops the humidity (the amount of water in the air) drops too. Central heating makes things worse, as it takes even more moisture out of the air. To tackle the problem you could install a humidifier in your home to keep the air moist, or simply use a moisturerich facial oil, such as L’Oréal’s Extraordinary Facial Oil, to keep your skin hydrated. Dehydrated skin loses its natural radiance and can appear lackluster. L’Oréal Paris Laboratories have specially formulated a refined blend of 8 essential oils: lavender, marjoram, romarin, geranium, rose, camomile, orange and lavandin. Replenish your skin with moisture and provide it with an instant feel of nourishment. If you prefer the comfort of a cream, then L’Oréal Paris’s new Extraordinary OilCream has that allimportant high oil content with the gentle creamy texture.
When sun, wind and cold leave your skin dry and itchy, don’t despair. Dry skin can be annoying, but it’s easily solved.
