Dry skin is common in the general population. In this chapter, epidermal homeostasis will be reviewed as well as the fundamental basics to understand the mechanisms by which the skin becomes dry or xerotic. Dry skin can be a simple status of the skin and does not necessarily reflect any cutaneous disease. Very dry skin, common at certain ages or environmental conditions, can, however, induce skin disease. Certain cutaneous diseases show scaly and dry skin as a primary clinical manifestation. These diseases are mentioned too. Finally, I will review how to prevent and how to manage dry skin, a common objective if I want to achieve a healthy skin.
