What causes Dry Skin?
The three main skin components contributing to skin hydration are your skin barrier, Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF), and skin oil (sebum). Your top layer of skin, the epidermis, is composed of skin cells surrounded by lipids (fats) that help the skin to retain moisture. When that barrier is disrupted, your skin cells are not held together as well, and their edges curl up – hence dry skin’s rough, scaly, and dull appearance. Dry skin isnt’t just uncomfortable, it is also a sign your skin is not holding on to enough water to allow its repair enzymes to work properly and that the barrier is impaired, allowing allergens and irritants to enter the skin more easily.
