Many medicines have a side effect of drying out and aging of the skin. These include drugs for:
If you experience dry skin and you believe your medicine may be the cause, talk to your doctor about alternatives. It may be that changing the dose is all you need.
Dry and aging skin is usually caused by external factors; however, it can be a sign of either a natural physiologic change or an illness.
Aging is a natural change that leads to dry skin. Most people develop dry skin as they get older, especially women. Changes in hormones can lead to dry skin and for many it is genetic. Some people are just prone to it.
Medical conditions can also lead to dry skin. A few common causes are:
Did you know you could improve your complexion by consuming certain foods that contain inflammation-reducing niacin, like avocados? Apricots, carrots, and cantaloupes are packed full of vitamin A and healthy antioxidants that fight skin-aging free radicals.
Essential fatty acids like the omega-3s found in salmon, walnuts, emu oil, flaxseed and eggs help produce your skin's natural oil layer that is essential in maintaining skin hydration.
Eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts. If ever you have a craving for nuts, it may be due to an iron deficiency. Even if you do eat a well-balanced diet take a multivitamin daily.
Use skin treatment products containing 100% pure emu oil to help keep skin moisturized and penetrate deeply into the tissues of the skin, muscles, and joints. Avoid diuretics such as alcohol and caffeine because they can cause the body and skin cells to lose important minerals and fluids.
Emu Therapy's Peach Facial Moisturizer comes in a convenient size that is perfect for packing away in an overnight bag and to be used as a part of your nightly bedtime routine. It can also be used along with Firming Lift Cream to create a more dramatic result for prematurely aging skin.
