Cracked skin is a symptom of dry skin, but can also occur in response to a skin infection, scratches or other trauma. When the skin gets dry, it can become rough and flaky. Small tears begin to form and can lead to deeper cracks called fissures, which can extend into the dermis (inner layer of skin).
Cracked skin is usually accompanied by other dry skin symptoms, with one symptom typically leading to another. For example, dryness can lead to scaling, scaling can cause itchiness, itching can lead to scratching, scratching can cause inflammation and small tears that can develop into fissures (cracks), and these can lead to further irritation. Treating dry, injured or cracked skin promptly and diligently can help break this cycle.
How Gloves In A Bottle can help prevent cracked skin
Instead of attempting to replace natural oils, Gloves In A Bottle bonds with dead skin cells on the outer layer of hand, face or body skin and works like an invisible pair of gloves. This invisible pair of gloves helps to reduce the loss of natural oil and moisture, which in turn restores hydration to the skin. This in turn alleviates the dry skin problem, which subsequently resolves the problem with cracked skin.
