People with a dry skin type do not produce as much skin oil or sebum as people with an oilier skin type. People with dry skin have difficulty retaining moisture at the skin’s surface, often resulting in itch, inflammation, and sometimes hardened and cracked skin, especially during the winter months when the air is dry and cold.
Dry skin can be a challenge, but with the right skincare regimen and appropriate lifestyle choices, dry skin can be managed. Acne can still occur in people with dry skin, but often is less severe than in people with an oily skin type.
Moisturizers are a critical part of your skincare regimen, and should be applied at least twice a day. You may need to be careful in choosing your cleansers, as some harsher products may irritate your dry skin. Sun protection is important for everyone, but it is especially important for dry skin, as sun exposure also has a drying effect on the skin.
