When the skin is deprived of its natural fat sheath, which protects it against harmful external influences, it starts to suffer from withering, which leads to exfoliation, erythema, itching, and other forms of discomfort. Frequently this problem might be as a result of the intake of certain medicines, the environment, the eating habits, or it is simply a result of aging.
If you feel your skin tight, itchy, rough, and red, it is imperative that you start taking care of it. The areas, in which a person feels dryness of the skin in most cases, are the feet, the hands, the back, and the waist. Frequently, the dry skin is also sensitive, which is seen in easier reaction to strong detergents or inappropriate cosmetics. When the lipid layer of the skin is impaired, it is more susceptible to allergic or other reactions, which is a sign of a problem.
