As the leaves begin to fall and the weather starts to get cooler you may notice changes happening to your skin. It is common for people to develop dry skin during the colder months. Humidity levels tend to drop in the fall as outdoor temperatures cool down. Often, low humidity levels cause dry air which promotes dry skin and may aggravate existing skin problems such as sensitive skin. This is especially true if you’re prone to eczema or other dry skin conditions.
What causes dry skin?
Dry skin makes the skin look and feel rough, itchy, flaky, or scaly. It is also known as xerosis or xeroderma. Dry skin has many causes, including:
Cold weather: When outdoor temperatures fall, the air holds less moisture. Dry skin is more common during Autumn and Winter when humidity levels are relatively low.
Hot shower: A hot shower always feels great after coming in from a cold day, but hot showers are very harsh on your skin. Hot water removes many natural oils promoting dry, itchy skin and causing it to redden and become irritated. Taking shower frequently with very hot water raises the risk of dry skin.
Itchy skin condition: If you’ve had a skin condition that caused itchiness at some time in your life, you have a greater risk of developing excessively dry skin.
