Morning Routine:

Dr Oz Ichthyosis Fish Scaling

Dr Oz spoke about Ichthyosis (Fish Scaling) & other causes of dry skin.

-hot shower may irritate skin
-the longer you stay in the shower, the more you dry your skin
-skin products may hurt the skin. Retinol is great for reducing wrinkles but it may cause skin issues, especially in sensitive skin. Basic soap is great for removing dirt, but it may contain fragrance and dyes that irritate the skin.

Dr Oz: Genetic Causes for Dry Skin

-Ichthyosis: also known as fish scaling
-Psoriasis-autoimmune condition, which causes rapid cell shedding. Looks like thick flakes on the body
-Eczema- Very common. Most often on the inner arms and behind the knee

Weather:
-wind and cold in the winter and AC in the summer. This sucks moisture from skin on the outside.
-on normal, moisturized skin, the outer layer of the skin bends but doesn’t crack. When your skin is dry, it cracks when pulled. When you scratch, you flake and run the risk of getting bacteria.

Foods:
-salmon-adds moisture
-Bran-rich in zinc, which repairs skin cells
