Dry Skin
Dry skin is generally not a serious medical condition, but it can cause a great deal of discomfort and even pain. There are of course more serious dry skin conditions that require medical attention, but most dry skin results from environmental factors that can be controlled through self-care with a Dead Sea dry skin cream. If you have chronic dry skin problems, you may need to see a dermatologist, but there are many excellent tactics you can use at home. In fact, simply avoiding excessive bathing in very hot water and harsh deodorant soaps is the first line of defense, and will cure dry skin for many people. Skin tightness after bathing, rough skin, itchy red skin, flaking and scaling, even deep cracks that bleed are all symptoms of non disease-related dry skin, and can usually be healed through good self-care and high-quality Dead Sea dry skin care products.

The severity, type, and location of dry skin depends on where you live, your health, the kinds of activities you engage in, the amount of time you spend outdoors exposed to sun, wind and snow, and even your sex. Most people have no idea that male skin cells produce natural oils much later in life than do female skin cells. Following menopause, most women experience a notable but completely natural drying of the skin. Also, think carefully about the following to help determine what may be causing your dry skin: weather, season, the type of heat in your house. If you have forced air heating, try a good humidifier. Additionally, it is important monitor your hydration level. Many people are chronically dehydrated, without even knowing it. If you can pinch the skin on the back of your hand and it doesn't "snap back" into place, that is a sign that you need to drink more water! And for the best dry skin relief, treat with the Dead Sea dry skin cream - BODY from Awakening.
