Among the most widely spread mature skin problems it is possible to single out increased dryness, flaking, wrinkles and others.
Dryness gives dull appearance to the skin and it can even cause itching and burning when the case becomes more severe. The extreme case of dry skin can develop into aesteotic eczema which is a very uncomfortable dermatitis usually appearing on the lower legs of the woman. There are several reasons of skin dryness. As a rule before or after menopause, the level of hormones in the woman's organism drops. This leads to the reduction in skin oil production. As an addition to it poor skin circulation is observed. All this makes skin drier, especially on the lower legs.

The main advice is not to use soap for cleaning the skin, but to use special cleansers. It is recommended to do so because soap deprives the skin of all its natural oils. In order to solve mature skin problems it is necessary to use an exfoliating scrub once or twice a week.
This procedure is very useful for mature skin because firstly it takes away the dead layer of old skin, and secondly it allows the skin to absorb the moisturization much more effectively. In case of mature skin problems it is necessary to use moisturizers designed especially for mature and dry skin.
The moisturizers should be applied to hands, back, lower legs and all those areas which are vulnerable to dryness. The best time to apply the body moisturizers is the time right after taking a shower or a bath. In case you take shower it is more advisable to apply not very hot but warm water because hot water may wash away your natural oils. After you go out of the shower pat yourself with a gentle towel in order to stay a little damp. After that use the moisturizer immediately. If you do it just like that the skin will better retain the hydration of the skin.
