Figuring out the symptoms of dry skin and how to relieve them is the first step you need to take if you suffer from this problem. I recently learned that dry skin becomes more of a problem as we age. How your skin changes as you age will depend quite a bit on your lifestyle, but overall it’s a problem that you’ll experience more frequently as you get older.

5 Symptoms of Dry Skin and How to Relieve Them
As you age, your skin becomes thinner, rougher, and more fragile. In addition to aging, things like smoking, sun exposure, and lifestyle can have an impact on your skin. The cold winter temperatures can also make dry skin more of a problem for most people. No matter the cause of your dry skin, you can relieve the symptoms.
These are the symptoms of dry skin:
- Peeling or Flaking
Depending on the severity of your dry skin, you may experience a few or all of these symptoms of dry skin. Relieving these symptoms can begin by using a nourishing body lotion or cream. The new AVEENO Skin Relief Gentle Scent™ Collection is a line of delightfully scented body washes and lotions specifically designed for sensitive skin. Now you can enjoy the beautiful scents of Nourishing Coconut and Soothing Oat and Chamomile in formulas that are clinically shown to be as gentle on skin as fragrance-free alternatives.
It is soap-free, dye-free and allergy-tested. Formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat, these unique dermatologist and allergy-tested products are proven to soothe itchy, extra-dry skin.
Other ways to relieve the symptoms of dry skin include:
- Protect your hands from cold temperatures by wearing gloves or mittens.
- Drink plenty of extra water to stay hydrated.
- Take warm showers not hot.
- Protect your hands from dish water and other chemicals when cleaning.
