Understanding each skin condition: Dry skin
Your skin is your biggest organ and it has three main functions: protection, regulation and sensation. Your skin would fall into one of three main skin types: dry skin is one of them. If your skin is dry, it tends to feel rough, tight and may even appear flaky.
If you suffer from dry skin, you are likely to be genetically predisposed to having an underactive sebaceous gland. This means that your skin lacks the oil it needs to retain moisture and to build a protective barrier against the environment, all very necessary to keep skin looking healthy and hydrated.
What else can influence the level of dryness in your skin?
A dry skin type is attributed to your genetic makeup. In other instances, dry skin can also be due to exposure to external factors such as the environment and lifestyle, in this case, it’s considered to be a skin condition.
