What Causes Dry Skin

Image depicting dry skin on the faceWe can all suffer from dry skin from time to time, its just one of those things we have to put up with, or is it? If we know what causes dry skin maybe we can try to avoid it. Our skin is our largest organ – about 2 square meters covers your body so you can imagine all the work it has to do. The skin has an important job of protecting what is inside your body, which is why sometimes it has a tough time on the outside. [social_share/]

What Causes Dry Skin?

Our skin is made up of many different layers and it’s the epidermis which is the thin outer layer that gives us our pigments and creates new skin cells.  When this thin layer of skin is under attack by elements and other things that does not make it feel good, that’s when we can get dry skin or other skin problems.

The Weather

The weather can have a huge impact on our skin, when its cold people suffer from dry cracked skin because of the changes in humidity and the harsh wind or temperature.  When it’s hot our skin sweats and sometimes that can cause skin to break out in rashes.

Hot Baths

Although we all like a long hot soak in the tub as it relaxes us, our skin does not like it, it drys out your skin robbing it of its natural oils that protect it.


Of course we know that our age can affect our skin, such as we discussed previously times that hormones are changing can make our skin dry and itchy.  Aging sadly will also be a factor of dry skin, theirs is no getting around the fact that we will all (hopefully) eventually have wrinkles.

Soaps and cleansers

Most soaps or cleansers can be very harmful to the skin causing dry skin and or causing flare-ups to other skin conditions such as eczema. This is because not only do that include harsh chemicals and fragrances but also because they lack glycerine, glycerine is a moisture rich ingredient that is actually removed from soaps because it can ruin machinery. Syrinx ZA ‘s natural skin care products can assist you in all of these areas

And our best seller which is the Deep Cleaner Therapy Bar – is a natural substitute for chemical based soaps which deeply cleanses and mositurises the skin, instead of drying it out like other soaps.  The Therapy is amazing for dry skin and you should notice a difference straight away.
