Why You May Be Getting Those Random Dry Patches On
Your Face
Dry skin can be frustrating and while Dermatologist Dr. Flora Kim states a lack of moisture can be the culprit, it isn't the only cause. In fact, your environment might be to blame, as well as certain underlying health conditions.
Cold weather and dry air are often to blame for dry patches, but some chemicals used in soaps, and overwashing your face, in general, can exacerbate the issue. It can also be caused by underlying medical conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and hypothyroidism.
If you notice recurring random dry patches of skin on your face or other areas of your body, contact a dermatologist. Once you've ruled out any underlying medical conditions you can treat your dry skin, but consult with your doctor before introducing any treatment into your skincare regimen.
