Dry skin is a very common skin complaint with many causes. Too much washing or using harsh products can wash away the natural oils that keep our skin healthy, while indoor heating strips moisture from the air in our homes. No matter what the cause, dry itchy skin is not something you should have to live with long-term. There is a lot you can do to improve your own skin, such as using a good hydrating moisturiser that contains no unnecessary chemicals, and avoiding harsh drying soaps. Dry skin is often temporary but for some, it may be a lifelong condition. It is most common on the face, hands, lower legs, arms, sides of the abdomen, and thighs. Dry skin is more common during the winter months, when humidity is low. Elderly people tend to have more trouble with dry skin due to the natural changes in skin that occur with age.

It’s never too soon for tweeners to start a sensible skincare routine
The first six months of life are particularly important for delicate young skin. When a child is born its skin is anatomically mature, but functional maturity continues during the first year of life and is often not complete until around the age of two.
From the age of two until puberty, children’s skin is naturally soft, smooth and full of water, but it is also a lot thinner and more vulnerable than adult skin and is therefore more liable to be affected by environmental pollutants and irritants.

The name derives from the Arabic word ‘alloeh’ - meaning shining bitter substance – and the Latin word ‘vera’ – meaning true. References to the use of aloe vera can be found in Chinese and Sumerian writings dating back to 3000BC
