Why is my skin dry and flaky?
If your skin is dry and flaky, possible causes include severe dehydration, improper skin care habits, a poor diet, allergies or medication. Seasonal climate also has effects on your skin, regardless of age or skin type.
A vital part of keeping skin healthy and youthful throughout these changes is skin hydration Hydrating your body from the outside is as important as hydrating your body from the inside.
Dry skin affects us all, and it can be uncomfortable and can create fine lines and wrinkles. Dry skin can be caused by several factors but the symptoms include the following:
- A feeling of skin tightness after showering, bathing or swimming
- Skin that feels and looks rough
- Itchy skin
- Flaking, scaling or peeling
- Fine lines or cracks
- Gray, ashy skin in people with dark skin
- Deep cracks that may bleed
Keep in mind there are some serious dry skin conditions — for example: Ichthyosis, Dermatitis, Xeroderma, Eczema or Dry skin associated with Diabetes. These chronic and severe dry skin problems may require evaluation by a dermatologist.
Dry skin can be caused by various factors:
- Weather. Your skin dries in winter, when temperatures and humidity levels are low. But the reverse may be true during the summer, where temperatures can soar, but humidity levels remain low.
- Sun exposure. Sun dries your skin, and its ultraviolet (UV) radiation penetrates far beyond the top layer of skin. The most significant damage occurs deeper, leading to deep wrinkles and loose, sagging skin.
- Central heating, wood-burning stoves, space heaters and fireplaces all reduce humidity and dry your skin.
- Medical conditions such as Diabetes, Thyroid Conditions, Chemotherapy treatments, etc.
- Lack of water consumption (Dehydration)
- Hot baths and showers.

Foot Health and Dry Skin On your Feet:
Your feet work hard every day, yet our feet tend to be ignored. Taking care of your feet each day will help them feel better. A warm foot bath that follows with a beneficial foot cream is a good way to care for your feet. Keeping your skin healthy is your best defense against sore, dry and achy feet.
Foot creams are not all the same, it is important to use a cream that is effective in softening hard skin and calluses on your feet. It needs to have ingredients that will help absorb moisture from the air (Urea and Lactic Acid) and shield the skin with a protective barrier to avoid water loss. Using a product that hydrates (absorbs moisture) and moisturizes (provide a barrier) is the best way to keep your skin staying soft and your feet ready for your daily activities.
It is also important to consider that fact that the skin on your feet is often severely dry and cracked especially in the summer time, this type of dry skin requires a product that is much more intensive in its ability to moisturize and to retain that moisture levels in the skin. Sweating feet or feet that may come in contact with hot surfaces will lose moisture far quicker than other parts of our body so it is important that any foot cream that you use can replace that moisture efficiently and keep the moisture where it is needed most.
Ingredients such as Urea should be present in your foot care cream as this is the skins own natural moisturizer, one of the most effective ingredients that you can put back into your skin. Not only does it attract, but it retains the moisture in your skin where it needs to be. Because it is a natural anti- inflammatory and antiseptic it will also help to heal your skin and to restore it to its supple condition. Nordic care offers a premium foot care cream that will give your feet everything they need, from the moisture they lack to soothing ingredients that will not only sooth the irritation and itchiness you may be experiencing but it will also help to heal any damage that has occurred to your skin do to neglect or simply because of harsh conditions.
