Does Dry Weather Mean Dry Skin?
The moisture level in skin has a lot to do with the moisture level in the atmosphere. This seems like common sense because skin doesn’t just produce its own water content — it comes from the water that’s around you, whether by humidity level or what you drink. When external moisture is low or unavailable, skin quickly uses up what’s left of the available hydration deep in the layers. Since this last-ditch effort is unsustainable, skin quickly becomes dehydrated depending on the humidity level. Adding a pre-existing skin condition to the mix doesn’t make matters any better, especially since psoriasis is an autoimmune skin disorder that causes healthy skin cells to be attacked. Essentially, autoimmune disorders send inflammatory signals to the inflicted parts of the body. In the case of psoriasis, this can result redness and scaly patches of skin that are exacerbated by dryness and roughness in dry climates. [Read more: Want Healthy Skin? Start With Hydration]
