What causes Dry Skin ?

Most cases of dry skin are often caused by environmental exposures. Weather is one example, in general your skin is driest when temperatures and humidity level is low or if you live in desert regions, where temperatures can be high but the humidity levels remain low.

Air Conditioners and Heaters at Home also reduce humidity and dry out your skin. Hot baths and showers or frequent swimming in chlorinated pools also contribute towards dry skin. Many popular soaps and detergents also strip lipids and moisture from your skin.

Sun exposure dries your skin and the UV rays penetrates deep into your skin and damages the collagen and elastin fibers which break down much more quickly than they should. This leads to sun damaged skin which also looks like dry skin.
