Dryness and Flaking

Dryness and Flaking. If you are, as I say, pushing the envelope of your Anti-Aging regimen, you will have encountered occasional dryness and flaking.  If your skin is genetically dry (See Skin Types-Dry) this might be a constant companion.

Skin that is manifesting a flakiness or a slouffinous needs a little assistance from you. If it’s tender and sensitive, calm it down with some 911 or Baby Me.  If the flakiness is loose, try one of the exfoliators in this category to gently help the skin to cleanse itself.

If nothing seems to work, talk to an Endocrinologist who might be able to correct what might be a side effect of hormonal or thyroid imbalance.
