Health Tip: Help Avoid Dry Skin

-- Skin changes are common as you age, including skin that's dry and itchy.

The Cleveland Clinic says you can avoid dry skin by taking note of these risk factors:

  • Not drinking enough fluids.
  • Spending too much time in the sun.
  • Exposure to dry air.
  • Being a smoker.
  • Being under stress.
  • Having less active oil and sweat glands, a common condition as people age.
