It's a fact, that dry skin feels itchy and flaky any time the temperature changes. Dry skin sufferers who live in areas that experience extreme hot and cold season changes are constantly trying to find ways to moisturize and soothe their parched skin. Dry skin occurs when the oil glands can't supply enough lubrication to the skin. As a result as wrinkles and fine lines start to appear in then thinner areas that dry out first - for example around the eyes, forehead, mouth and lips. Use daily moisturizers to help your skin look its best.
Dehydrated skin looks years older than it actually is. To combat skin dryness a rich moisturizer containing a variety of nutrients and pure essential oils needs to be applied several times throughout the day. Individuals with dry skin should apply moisturizer when they wake up, before they go to bed and at regular intervals throughout the day.
