Dry skin is very uncomfortable condition associated with itching,scaling,cracking. It is caused due to various reasons. Few people have dry skin always and few develop dry skin in particular seasons usually winter. Dryness is usually more over forearm leg and face. Causes for dryness include winter weather, harsh soaps (which will remove the natural moisturizer barrier of your skin), irritants( which could be creams u apply or clothes or ornaments) , health issues (like allergic dermatitis or psoriasis ) Treatment to dry skin includes hydrate yourself well drink plenty of fluids, avoid using harsh soaps, ‌use cleansing lotions for face n mild soap for body , use moisturizer after showers. It's better to consult dermatologist once if dryness is more. Usually females dont get facial hairs or the hair will be vry thin. Getting coarse hair over face is called hirsutism. It may be hereditary or due to hormonal imbalance conditions where there is excess of androgens or insulin resistance like obesity or pcos . if u hav irregular cycles wit facial hair den better to consult gynaecologist. Treatment of unwanted facial hair include threading, laser removal and once u hav removed, to avoid regrowth hair thinning creams are available which reduce hair growth n thin the coarse hairs. Its better to Consult dermatologist once..
