Health.com: How To Get Rid of Annoying Body Problems

Dry Skin

What causes it: Hot weather, cold weather, dry air, sun, harsh soaps—all of these things and more can dry out your skin. Dry skin may also occur when your thyroid gland is working sluggishly, a condition known as hypothyroidism.

What to do: If your dry skin is caused by environmental factors, using plenty of moisturizer and showering in lukewarm water (rather than hot) will make a big difference.

See your doctor for help with dry skin that persists. He or she may be able to prescribe ointments that will solve the problem, and can determine if the dryness is due to an underlying medical condition.
