Dry skin, also known as xerosis or xeroderma, is a common condition that affects people of all ages. It is characterized by a lack of moisture in the skin and has many causes, including cold or dry weather, sun damage, harsh soaps, and overbathing.
Dry skin can look and feel rough, itchy, flaky, or scaly. It can affect large areas on the body or smaller patches of skin, varying from person to person.
Ways in which dry skin can be improved include regular moisturizing, restoring the skin’s protective barrier, and practicing sun protection year-round.
