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.
