Dry skin is a skin type where the skin produces less sebum than normal skin types and may struggle to keep moisture locked into the cells. Dry skin on the face is easily compromised and more susceptible to free radical damage, premature ageing, dehydration, and flare ups of inflammation. It can be really uncomfortable but good news, there are plenty of ways to keep dry skin at bay.
