Aging & Dry Skin

With age, skin undergoes many changes. It becomes thin, develops wrinkles, sags and takes time to heal. The skin also loses its ability to produce enough sebum and sweat. The moisture retention in the skin cells also reduces with aging. The absence of required amount of sebum and sweat and the lowered capacity of skin to hold water, result in dry skin as you age. If you have developed a routine to use moisturizers, you must increase the frequency as you age. Always use a moisturizer within three minutes of taking a bath. Don't use hot water and avoid long baths. Use warm water. Dry skin causes more itching and aging problems. Avoid them with proper skin care as you age.
