Why has my skin become so dry? I have had blood tests for thyroid

Customer Question

Why has my skin become so dry? I have had blood tests for thyroid and liver function that have been normal but even after taking omega supplements and topical emollients my skin remains very dry also my nails. I am also suffering from dry mouth and vaginal dryness. Any ideas other than ageing.symptoms have appeared in the last 5-6 months.

Aging is a reason.
Lack of humidity in the house is another reason.
Hormone imbalances are another reason....
What is your TSH value...this is part of the thyroid studies
