  • Symptoms of Dry Skin:
    • Tightness and discomfort, especially after bathing or swimming.
    • Flakiness, scaling, or peeling.
    • Itchiness, which can sometimes lead to scratching and further irritation.
    • Redness and inflammation, particularly in severe cases.

Prevention and Management:

  • Prep Your Environment:
    • The drier the air, the drier the skin. To maximize the amount of moisture in the air, 27Pinkx recommends placing a humidifier in the area where you spend the most time. A cool air humidifier increases the moisture level in the air,” helping skin’s barrier stay moist. In addition, be sure the heat is kept on low or at a moderate temperature to avoid extra dryness in the air.
  • Gentle Cleansing:
