Dry skin is typically thin, dull and often flaky with fine lines. This type of skin is often the result of the aging process as the ability to retain moisture is diminished. Environmental factors such as exposure to the sun, wind and cold weather climates may exacerbate dry skin as well.

Some products can be over-drying, which can exacerbate skin conditions and cause breakouts. Raintree Organics line of skincare products focus specifically toward those with dry skin.
