Dry skin, or xerosis, is a common problem that can affect everyone, particularly during the winter season. Complex factors including decreased skin moisture, impaired skin barrier function, and decreased skin lipids result in dry, flaky skin. Aging, itching, and environmental factors such as seasonal changes in cellular synthesis, lower humidity, and overuse of heaters are all contributors to skin dryness. As we age, and during winter months, dry skin issues tend to worsen. There are many botanically sourced ingredients and extracts that can be helpful when treating dry skin or preventing its development, such as Glycerol, Urea, Hydroxy Acids, Enzymes, Niacinamide, Linoleic Acid, Magnesium, Calcium, and Vitamin C.
