How to Care for Dry Skin

 

Skincare product layering is an effective way to keep dry skin at bay even during the cold winter season."

 

Skin is our first defense against harmful external elements including pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses. Our skin tends to be drier with age. Dry skin causes tightness, itchiness and flakiness that weaken the skin's ability to protect our body. It significantly affects our health and wellbeing. What causes dry skin? How to prevent and take care of dry skin?

The Common Causes of Dry Skin

1. Ageing

The sebum production in our skin is controlled by testosterone hormone. Men produce ten times or even higher testosterone than women. This is the reason why men tend to have oilier skin than women. The production of testosterone in men's and women's body declines with age. As a result, the older we get, the drier our skin will be.

Due to hormonal changes, perimenopausal, menopausal and postmenopausal women often suffer from skin dehydration, dryness and pigmentation. The production of collagen, elastin and other skin components in the women's body is decreased during and after menopause. As a result, it weakens skin's barrier function. The skin of perimenopausalmenopausal and postmenopausal women is more prone to damage and ageing.

2. Diet

Poor eating habits and not drinking enough water can cause dehydration and dry out our skin. It is very important to make sure that we have a balanced diet and drink enough water throughout the day. Women need 2 litres of water a day while men need 2.5 litres of water a day.

3. External Factors

Cold temperature and low humidity can dry out our skin. More people suffer from dry skin in winter. Regular shaving and harsh chemicals in skincare and household products can dry out our skin too. Benzoyl Peroxide (found in some acne medications) is known to strip away the natural moisture and damage the barrier function of our skin. 

4. Others

Children and adults who are affected by eczema and psoriasis often suffer from dry skin. Also when we catch cold or flu, our skin tends to be drier than usual.

How to Care for Dry Skin

1. Eat Healthy Fats

Not all fats are bad for our health. Healthy fats are good for our body and skin. Some fatty foods help promote healthy skin and prevent dryness such as:

  • Fatty fish which is known as the best source of omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids help nourish our skin and strengthen its barrier function. 
  • Avocado which is rich in healthy fats that help prevent dry skin.
  • Nuts. Like avocado, nuts contain healthy fats and vitamin E that help protect our skin from dryness and environmental damage.

2. Drink Water Frequently Throughout The Day

In general, adults need about 2 to 2.5 litres of water a day. The sources of water for our body can also be from foods such as fruits and vegetables. To have healthy skin, eat a great variety of fresh fruits and vegetables every day. They contains antioxidants and vitamins that nourish our body and slow down the skin's ageing process.
