Why Dry Skin Itches, And How To Stop It Today!

Kick The Itch Today!

 

No one likes how dry skin looks or feels, but maybe the biggest problem with dry skin is that it makes you scratch. Not only is the itch associated with dry skin annoying and painful, but it brings with it even more skin problems you definitely don’t want.

In fact, the common symptoms of dry skin, like roughness and cracks on your skin, may just be the beginning. Itchiness, flaking, and scales as a result of dryness can also give way to swelling and rashes that can have you reeling for days, weeks, or even months on end. (1)

Thankfully, more information is available on why dry skin causes you to scratch, and how you can not only DITCH THE ITCH, but ALLEVIATE the symptoms of dry skin all winter long!

In this blog we talk about the relationship between dry skin and scratching, and how you can enjoy SMOOTH and HYDRATED skin today!

The first thing to know about the relationship between dry skin and its subsequent itch is that there’s a name for that feeling you get when you think you need to scratch. Its called pruritus, and can affect you all over your body, from small spots to large expanses of skin.

The interesting thing about pruritus is that it can be caused by skin that’s dry, and can especially affect older people, or those whose skin is more prone or currently affected by dryness. Unfortunately, the scratching caused by pruritus can also cause your skin to become infected, raised, and even bleed, making it essential you don’t give in to your itch. (2)

You probably already know that Itchiness can be caused by many things, including dry skin. You’ll probably know if it’s dry skin that’s causing your itchiness because, most often, dry skin affects your legs, arms, and hands, potentially leading to cracks and scales on your skin. (3) (4)

Now that we know dry skin and itching are related, let’s talk about what causes the former. As we know, skin can become dry as we grow older because of less oil, but itchiness as a result of dry skin can also affect anyone at any age. This is because dry skin can also be caused by low humidity, indoor air, and hot water. (6)

This time of year is particularly challenging for your skin because dry skin can also be caused by indoor heating turned up in the winter season. Summer can also be a problem for your skin, as indoor air conditioning can pose similar problems to you and your skin. (6)

The itchiness that can accompany dry skin can trouble you this time of year depending on how often you clean your hands. Washing your hands too much can lead to dryness, which can then lead to even more suffering, making it that much more important you MOISTURIZE. (7)

MOISTURIZE THE PAIN AWAY

 

 

Another important thing to note about dry skin is that dry skin is weaker skin. Weak skin can give you problems beyond that of just itchiness, because dry skin also causes your skin to lose its elastic nature, as well as suffer when under duress – causing it to split.

Another scary thing dry skin can be a sign of is ECZEMA – or atopic dermatitis. Really dry skin can spike your eczema problems, which can then cause you to feel the need to scratch. Unfortunately, this terrible chain of skincare madness can lead to even more problems for you and your skin, like bleeding. (8)

Now here’s the thing to remember about scratching: you’re only causing yourself more pain in the end. In fact, the release of serotonin from your body when you scratch may actually make you want to scratch more, making your skin problems – and symptoms – even worse. (9)

 

QUICK TIP: Scratching is especially dangerous when you’re scratching skin that’s already damaged and dry. Protect your skin with the 100% ALL-NATURAL SOOTHING ESSENTIAL OILS found in GARNER’S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL BODY MOISTURIZER PACKAGE today! (10)

 

Though we all know dry skin and itchiness are related, that doesn’t exactly help you to not scratch when the feeling's there. Well, thankfully there are a FEW WAYS to keep that itch off, while preserving your skin as best as possible. One simple way to keep the need to scratch away is by putting a cool compress on your skin.

Another simple way to calm this awful sensation is by simply patting your skin – not scratching it. Obviously ALL-NATURAL MOISTURIZER is also recommended, and so is keeping your nails short so you don’t cause your skin damage without realizing it. (11)

Another thing to know about dry skin and itchiness is that people with skin that’s super dry can possibly feel the need to scratch all the time, which can make even the smallest and most mundane tasks difficult to carry out. (12) (13)
