Dry Skin

Dry skin is one of the most common problems we encounter and affects virtually everyone at some point during their lifetime. Some individuals however have genetic predispositions or are taking medications which make them more susceptible to getting dry skin which can decrease skin barrier function and lead to other conditions such as eczema and viral and bacterial infections. Daily moisturizer is essential to any dry skin regimen and sometimes prescription moisturizers such as urea can be given as well as other recommendations.
