Dry skin is recognized by its tight, rough feel and its dull appearance. It is apparent in its upper-most layer, the epidermis. Medically it is called â??xerosisâ??.

Dry skin is often felt more than it is seen, which on some people can be very noticeable and embarrassing. If this is untreated, it can sometimes lead to dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), swelling, and infection.
