Look at the olives above and tell us one thing: do you prefer the silky, supple olive on the left or the aged, wrinkled olive on the right?
Unless you’re a reptile, and like skin that’s rough and dry, you’re going to favour the smooth olive on the left. Correct?
The difference between the plump and shrivelled olives is one thing – hydration. And similarly, if your skin’s lost its radiance and wrinkles are taking over like the olives on the right, you’ll find that this is because your skin lacks hydration too. You’re suffering from dry skin.
Aside from blowing out the candles on another birthday cake and staying out of the sun to prevent pigmentation and age spots, dry skin is the most common cause of premature ageing. But that’s not all dry skin can cause. Dehydration and dry skin can lead to eczema, psoriasis, irritations and chapped skin.
