Dry and Sensitive Skin Treatment

What causes dry skin? The skin feels dry and cracked when the outer layer of your skin called the stratum corneum has abnormalities in its barrier function. This lack in barrier function causing a reduction in lipids (fats) and a reduction in water-holding ability. There are many causes for this related to your environment and also your general health and wellbeing and diet. Some people are more prone to dryness including people with eczema, but also the skin will become drier with age and in postmenopausal women.
