Dry skin is a very common condition to suffer from and is generally indicative of improper skin care. However, there are a number of other factors that could also lead to the cracking of the skin such as environmental conditions as well as the existence of other medical complications. One of the most common medical skin conditions that cause the skin to become significantly dry and break easily is known as eczema. When a person suffers from eczema, the normally very fine lines in the skin become more prominent and the skin starts to feel rough and appear rather flaky. If these initial symptoms are ignored and the condition is allowed to worsen, the skin starts to develop some cracks resembling fish net cracks. While cracked skin can significantly impact an individuals overall aesthetic appearance, it is also accompanied by a number of different symptoms such as constant itching. This can be rather annoying right through the entire day as well as when trying to get some sleep at night. Moreover, continuously rubbing and scratching the skin may even tend to make the targeted portion of the skin much thicker and rough. This is also known as lichenification. As mentioned previously, there are a number of other factors that will also turn out to be the root cause of the condition. For example, a lack of proper sebum oils produced by the sebaceous glands under the skin as well as pollution in the atmosphere. This could possibly clog the pores in the skin, restricting the skin from being able to breathe properly.

Because of the fact that dry skin is such a common condition, there are a number of very effective and easy to use home remedies developed all over the world. Honey is one of the best natural dry skin treatment substances and not only nourishes the skin cells but also heals them. Moreover, it helps the dead skin cells to move from the surface of the skin, thereby stimulating renewal and regrowth of the skin tissues. Tea herb bags are also known to be very beneficial and all you need to do is apply one teaspoon of the dried herb to a cup of boiling water and allow it to steep for about 5 minutes. You can also create your own homemade natural skin moisturizer by mixing together 1 egg yolk, a teaspoon each of orange juice and olive oil and a few drops of rose water and lime juice and apply the resulting paste on to your skin. Allow it to penetrate through the upper layers of the skin for about an hour before you wash it off with some warm water.
