Dry skin is a common condition that occurs when the skin lacks moisture, leading to tightness, flakiness, and sometimes itching. Because of the desert climate of San Angelo, this is extremely common. In addition, some people also lacks the ability to produce enough sebum (a sticky, oily substance produced deep in the skin to help moisturize and protect the skin). To treat dry skin effectively, it is important to follow a skincare routine that focuses on hydration and protection.

Here are some tips to help alleviate dry skin:

1. Use a gentle cleanser
Avoid harsh soaps and opt for a mild, fragrance-free cleanser that won't strip the skin of its natural oils.

2. Moisturize regularly
Apply a rich, hydrating moisturizer to your skin at least twice a day, especially after showering or washing your face.

3. Use a humidifier
Adding moisture to the air in your home or workplace can help prevent your skin from drying out.

4. Avoid hot showers
Hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils, so opt for lukewarm water when showering or bathing.

5. Stay hydrated
Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.

6. Protect your skin
Use sunscreen daily to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, which can further dry out the skin.
