FIND OUT WHY YOUR SKIN IS ROUGH TO THE TOUCH
Have you touched your face recently and noticed that not only was your skin dry, but it was scaly? Your scalp, hands, and arms may even feel different — they may be dry, cracked, flaky, or hard.
On average, your body sheds approximately 30,000 to 40,000 skin cells daily. (That’s a lot, right?) You can’t feel your cells regrow, but it happens constantly!
Because of your skin’s constant regrowth, the top layer is a combination of dead cells and natural oils. The causes of your scaly skin could be age, sun damage, chemicals, bad makeup, medicine, harsh soaps, overbathing, and/or allergies. Depending on the cause of your rough skin, you may notice that your skin reacts to temperature or seasonal changes. If you have any of these signs, you may want to talk with one of our professionals:
- Rough texture
- Severe flaking
- Scaling or peeling
- Line and cracks
- Discoloration (typically redness)
- Bleeding around cracks
