Dry leg skin: what to do

Have you ever had very dry skin on your legs and felt the need to scratch?

There are several causes that can contribute to dry skin on your legs, but they are all fixable as long as you take the proper precautions. In this article we will explain how to have smooth and silky skin, without having to give up showing off your legs whenever and wherever you want!

The main causes of dry skin

The problem of dry skin is among the most common and spares no one, big or small. If it is not remedied, unfortunately, it can be really annoying and create real discomfort (both physical and emotional).

Often, in fact, if the skin is very red it starts to get irritated and itchy and especially during the summer, sunbathing on an ongoing irritation aggravates the situation even more.

Here are the main reasons that cause dryness in the skin:

  • Dry air: a climate without the right humidity causes a suffocation of the skin by closing the ports and causing flaking
  • Too hot water : our skin has natural oils that protect it every day from external agents that cause stress and damage. Water at too high a temperature eliminates these natural oils and consequently reduces the protective film on the skin.
  • Chemical and very aggressive products: if you are using commercial products containing chemicals (such as Parabens, Silicones, SLES and SLS)
    dry legs you're probably damaging your skin without you realizing it.
    To understand if this is the problem, try eliminating the products you use for a couple of weeks,
    preferring creams with natural and organic ingredients or natural body oils.
  • Age factor: over time the oils naturally present on the skin tend to decrease
    as our body slows down its production. Again, using specific products can help your skin enormously.
  • Low hydration: do you drink enough water? Our body is made up of 60% water:
    if you reduce this percentage by not getting enough water into your body, the skin will undergo this stress causing severe dehydration in the long run. These are the main reasons that cause very dry skin on the legs, as well as major health problems (which, unfortunately, always lead to secondary problems) and an unhealthy diet, lacking in vitamins and foods rich in nutrients.
