Why does skin get drier with age?

0

The skin has its own natural moisturizing system. As you age, this system performs with diminished capacity, depleting the ability of the skin to retain moisture. With the march of time, the skin barrier gets thinner and thinner and the slow-down of the skin’s cellular activity impacts on its ability to attract water molecules and to produce ceramides, which play a crucial role in the self-hydration mechanism of the skin.
