Rough or dry skin is characterised by the skin cracking, scaling and itching. The skin condition can appear on any part of the body but is often found on the face, hands, arms or legs.
Dry or rough skin can occur for a variety of reasons and although uncomfortable, it is often temporary.
Dry skin can be the result of a medical skin condition such as eczema, but most of the time the dry skin is caused by environmental factors.
Some of these include:
- Weather Colder conditions with low humidity can cause dry skin.
- Heat produced by wood burners or central heating can cause dry skin because of the lower humidity levels.
- Hot showers or baths If you take regular long hot showers or baths this can dry out the skin.
- Soaps Detergents and soaps tend to strip moisture from the skin leaving it rough or dry.
As with most things prevention is always better than the cure and Chic provide specialist treatments to help iron out fine lines as well as reducing the appearance of rough or dry skin.
Rough and dry skin is a condition that can easily be managed. For maximum effect, you should pair your own skin regime with Chic’s specialist treatments.
