Dry skin of the face is a very common problem. In order to remain fresh and lubricated, our skin produces an oil called “sebum”. Too much sebum can lead to an outbreak of acne. However, if not enough sebum is produced, then your skin will instead become dry and dehydrated. This can lead to flakiness and itchiness. In severe cases, if not correctly treated, the skin can also scale, peel and bleed.
If you’re experiencing dry skin of the face, there are a number of reasons why this might be. Cold weather and dry air, such as from air conditioning, can drain the skin of oils. Harsh chemicals in products can also react badly to your skin, especially if it’s sensitive. Other common factors include smoking, unbalanced skin pH, and sun and environmental exposure. It can also be linked to other existing skin conditions, such as psoriasis, as well as diabetes.
