Dry Skin
Jan 4, 2009
Dehydration is the loss of water in our body, sometimes severe enough to cause shock since human body is composed of seventy five percent water. To discuss this problem we first need to know its main cause. There are several factors like the environment, weather, health situation or lifestyle is making the skin dry. There are some of skin dry easily remedied and others will take more time and effort.

Today, millions of people around the world have dry skin. There are numerous products being invented to address this situation concerning the skin. Generally speaking, there is no such thing as dry skin. We may either have dehydrated skin or an oil skin type which is also hydrated or dehydrated.

What does a dehydrated skin feel like?
• dry
• itchy
• flaky patches and rough spots
• blotchy patches
• skin tone is dull and pale
• when apply a bit of pressure on the skin, it does not revert back to its original state

When you leave your skin dehydrated for a long period of time, keratinization occurs. Let’s take for an example the feet. The skin on the bottom of our feet is subjected too much heat, friction and dirt. The dead skin cells that build up on the surface of our skin forms a coat covering it, making it nearly impossible for moisturizer to reach our skin. The skin will further get dehydrated. Then keratinization occurs with breakouts since our skin is badly in need of water.

Fortunately, dehydration is easily treated and is very temporary. The skin just needs to rehydrate and vitamins given to be able to have healthy skin.
