Dry Skin and Its Suitable Products
Dry skin suffers from a symptom of limited ability to produce enough grease and oils for the skin to do its natural functions and to look beautiful. Due to the low rate of essential grease the skin appears pale, dry, rough and too thin which leads to skin hardening and peeling off and the appearance of skin flakes especially in the winter season.
Dry skin is more likely to develop early wrinkles and inflammation than other types of skin. And the secret to keeping it healthy and preventing early wrinkles is to moisturize it regularly.

But that should be done only on one condition, and that is to apply moisturizing cream designed for dry skin immediately after the scrub session.
