Our skin has small oil glands dotted all over it. They secrete a natural oil to keep our skin soft and help to prevent drying of skin. The cells of skin also contain protective layer made of fats and proteins. This layer locks the moisture and protects our skin from harsh outside environment.
Causes of Dry Skin:
The skin loses its capacity to retain moisture, as we grow old. The extreme climatic conditions to which we get exposed, as we grow old worsen the condition and skin becomes more dry.
Dry skin looks dull and life less due to lack of moisture. Well hydrated skin glows and exhibits a healthy look. Wrinkles develop at an early age due to prolonged dryness of skin. Dry, rough and wrinkled skin gives an aged appearance.
