Dry skin

Dry skin

Skin is our largest organ that forms a protective barrier against the external environment. Healthy skin feels smooth, soft to the touch but dehydration can occur if skin is not treated correctly.


Dry skin can be identified easily by touch: skin is tight, looks and feels rough. Itching, burning and irritation can occur as well. Skin may begin to peel, crack and, in more severe cases, it can even bleed. However,  symptoms will not improve by merely using ordinary skin care treatments, as they only offer a temporary solution. .
The natural defense barrier of skin is a hydrolipidic layer consisting of water and lipids. If skin is healthy, this layer can protect skin from external damages and supports water retention. When hydrolipidic imbalance occurs in the epidermis, skin cannot function properly and the symptoms of dry skin appear.


  1. Dry skin: skin feels uncomfortable, moderate soreness and peeling occurs.
  2. Extreme dry skin: skin feels uncomfortable and unpleasant, peeling, cracking and tightening may be experienced.
  3.  Atopic dermatitis: a condition that causes skin to be extremely dry, itchy, irritated.

When to see a doctor

Dry skin cannot fulfill its protective function and is more sensitive, vulnerable to external damages. See your dermatologist if you experience itching simultaneously with redness, irritation or open wounds. Wounds and weaker, thinner skin is prone to viral and bacterial infections.

Causes of dry skin

Dry skin or extreme dry skin is a chronic skin condition. Genetics usually play an important role in having dry skin, but other causes may contribute to dry, dehydrated skin as well. Dehydration may be temporary and can be caused by external factors such as cold air, changes in temperature, too hot or cold rooms. Soaps, face cleansers, detergents, sunbathing and tanning may also dry skin.
  • Dry skin is a skin type which can be improved but cannot be changed. Dry skin is thin, vulnerable and has low water and lipid levels.
  • Dehydrated skin, however , is a temporary, reversible state that can occur with every skin type. Dehydrated skin feels tight and sore in patches.

Taking care of dry skin

  • Avoid really hot baths and showers – try minimising time spent under hot water.
  • Avoid cosmetics containing chemicals such as alcohol, artificial fragrances and colorants, parabens.
  • Use a body lotion for dry skin after every shower or bath
  • Use a natural physical sunscreen like Schüssler Sunscreen SPF15 regularly from spring to autumn ⦁ Consume more water and less alcohol and caffeine
  • Don’t rub your skin while cleaning it: use cotton pads or reusable pads. Avoid cleansers with alcohol.
