Treatments for Dry Skin

Dry skin causes a rough texture to your skin, caused by the lack of moisture. It is a common skin condition, also known as xeroderma. Dry skin requires a good skin care routine at home, but can also be treated by a specialist, who can suggest a proper skin treatment for your skin type and condition.

What is dry skin?

As we already said, dry skin is caused by the lack of moisture in it. The medical term for this condition is xeroderma. Usually it feels like rough patches of the skin, flaking or looking scaly. Dry skin can often feel itchy, and is also possible to crack or bleed.

Other symptoms of dry skin are rough or tight skin, as well as lighter or darker than your normal skin tone. A rash can also develop on your skin, also known as dermatitis.

Dry skin can appear all over your body, including:

  • Hands
  • Face
  • Elbows
  • Around the mouth
  • Genitals
  • Legs

Different types of dry skin

There are several different types of dry skin, including:

Contact dermatitis

This type of dry skin occurs when something comes into contact with the skin, causing a reaction.


This is a group of skin conditions, cousin red, dry, bumpy and itchy patches of skin. This is a common skin condition that can get worse with different allergens or stress.

Seborrheic dermatitis

It can cause dry, flaky skin patches on the face, chest, arms and legs, and occurs when the body reacts to a normal yeast, growing on the skin.

What causes dry skin?

As we already said, dry skin is caused by the lack of moisture within the layers. However, there are different factors that can cause this skin condition:


As we age, the skin’s moisture-producing oil glands dry up, causing the fat and collagen of the skin to also dry up, leading to thinning skin, and this is a natural process.


The temperature in the environment can also affect the skin hydration and can cause dry skin. The lack of humidity can be a reason for this unpleasant skin condition.


Genetics can also be a reason for dry skin. Furthermore, health conditions leading to dry skin can also include allergies, eczema, diabetes and kidney disease.

How to treat dry skin?

Before you start treating your dry skin, it is important to make a diagnosis. This is not hard, as you can diagnose dry skin by its appearance. Of course, we advise you have a consultation with a specialist who may order some tests to check for health conditions, causing dry skin, for example:

  • Allergy test
  • Blood test
  • Skin biopsy or tissue

When you know for sure what causes your dry skin, you can start searching for the best treatment for your skin type and condition.

Home skin care

A proper skin care routine is a must, if you want to keep your skin hydrated and good-looking. Choose the right moisturizer that will smooth and soften your dry skin, and will work for recreating the natural barrier of your skin.


For extremely dry skin, specialists may prescribe some medications, acting to decrease the inflammation in your skin.
