Dry skin causes

According to a small 2022 study, a consistent skincare regimen can lead to measurable changes in dry skin. Dry skin can be uncomfortable and is usually marked by scaling, itching, and cracking. While dry skin commonly affects the hands, arms, and legs, it can affect any part of the body. There are several causes of dry skin. These include:

  • environment
  • hard water
  • genetics
  • excessive washing
  • exposure to irritants
  • medical conditions, like hypothyroidism or diabetes

These factors can be mostly classified into two categories: internal and external, and the easiest to address are the external factors, and these include:

  • humidity
  • bathing habits
  • use of harsh soaps

Dry skin, flakiness, and cracked lips may be due to a vitamin B deficiency. A deficiency in B vitamins will also make you more sensitive to certain skincare products and sunlight.

Best skincare routine for dry skin on the face

As skin dries, it shrinks and causes cracks, which can get deep, painful, and even start to bleed. Cracks allow germs and bacteria to enter the body, which can potentially lead to a skin infection. When it comes to a skincare routine for dry skin, keep the five steps listed below in mind:

  1. Cleanse with a hydrating cleanser that doesn’t disrupt the outer skin layer.
  2. Tone with an alcohol-free toner to restore skin pH.
  3. Target specific skin concerns with a serum.
  4. Moisturize with a nourishing, non-comedogenic moisturizer to lock in hydration.
  5. Protect from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays to prevent sun damage.


Your first step is to choose a hydrating cleanser. You want a cleanser to remove dirt and oil without causing a disruption to the outer skin layer.

A good ingredient to look for is hyaluronic acid.


Many toners use alcohol as the main ingredient, which dries out the skin. Look for an alcohol-free toner with active ingredients that restore the pH levels of your skin.


This step helps to target specific skin concerns. Focus on hydration with a pure hyaluronic acid serum, or opt for something meant to target skin concerns like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, or acne.


A good moisturizer will lock in the benefits of a serum. Use a moisturizer daily that’s specifically designed for the face. Facial moisturizers need to be really nourishing and hydrating but avoid products that might clog your pores.


Daily sunscreen use prevents harmful UV rays from damaging the skin.

Best skincare routine for dry skin with acne

Believe it or not, acne can happen even when you have dry skin. A few tips can help you clear up blemishes and hydrate at the same time:

  • avoid heavy products like oil-based lotions, moisturizers, and sunscreens
  • only cleanse the face once per day
  • avoid exfoliating, which can dry out the skin
  • go easy on drying ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid

Remember that alcohol, dyes, and fragrances may be irritating to sensitive skin. It’s best to look for non-comedogenic products.
