External factors can also cause very dry skin to develop. This includes cold, heat, sunlight, excessive contact with water, a poor diet or a lack of moisture.
Many people suffer from very dry skin especially during the winter months, as the cold deprives the skin of moisture. On top of that, the sebaceous glands produce less sebum in winter. This drying out is then worsened by dry air from heating systems.
You should therefore give your skin plenty of attention during the winter months and pamper dry and very dry skin with a moisturising care cream. Find out more about the reasons for dry skin here.
