Flaky Skin: Itchy, Red, Dry Flaky Skin?

Areas of rough, flaky skin do not respond to normal cleansing and moisturizing. These spots of dry, possibly itchy skin don't look pleasant or feel comfortable. Dry flaky skin is usually caused by an athlete's foot infection. Athlete's foot fungus lives in the outer layers of the skin. Fungal infections of the feet are called Tinea Pedis.

When flaky, itchy skin is caused by dry, dead cell build-up, exfoliating the dead surface cells can mean smoother, more comfortable skin and will help moisturizers or medications to work better.

Skin rashes come in many shapes and at every stage of life. No one gets away without at least one rash during a lifetime - from diaper rash to acne to shingles. Although some rashes are more of a nuisance, others can be symptoms of something more serious.

Causes for Dry Flaky Skin

  • Practical reasons for dry skin: Low humidity, Home heating, Rubbing alcohol, Certain chemicals and cleaning products
  • Psoriasis

Natural Treatment for Dry Flaky Skin

The best way to boost moisture in dry, flaky skin is to wash your face with a gentle cleanser, then apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp.

Use an oil-free cleanser to keep the skin's surface clean. Follow with a toner to remove any make-up that remains on the skin. Pat dry and follow with a light, hydrating moisturiser with a pump applicator (to prevent dipping your fingers into anything and transferring it to your face).
