When a man counts his penis among his greatest assets, he wants to be sure it is always presented in its best light. Paying careful attention to penis health (http://www.menshealthfirst.com/) is one way to achieve this, and doing so can help a man to spot dry penis skin as it develops and take steps to treat it, hopefully before it becomes a problem. But effective treatment for dry penis skin requires knowing the cause of the dryness; otherwise, a man is likely to continue treating it over and over.

There can be many causes of a dry penis, but one that may not be at the top of everyone’s list is malnutrition. That’s correct: not eating well can be one reason why dry penis skin can strike a guy.

Malnutrition

When most people think of malnutrition, they probably think of the classic picture: a person with an emaciated look but a bloated stomach. And it’s true that people who are starving may develop that tragic appearance. But the truth is that a person can be malnourished and still be eating regularly.

As the UK’s National health Services website explains, malnutrition “is a serious condition that occurs when a person’s diet doesn't contain the right amount of nutrients.” A person who doesn’t get enough nutrients is said to have undernutrition. This can come about when a person simply doesn’t eat enough, but it can also occur when a person eats the right amount of food but not food that contains all the nutrients that they need. It also can occur if a person eats all the right foods in what should be the right amounts but has a problem with absorbing the nutrients.

Malnutrition usually (but not always) results in weight loss. Other symptoms include fatigue, weak and/or sore muscles, feeling “down” and a tendency to get sick.

Also associated with malnutrition: dry skin.

Dry skin

The skin becomes dry when a person is lacking vitamins, antioxidants, or both. When nutrition is balanced and sufficient, the body naturally takes in the proper amount of these ingredients. When it is lacking in either or both, then the body isn’t able to function in the way necessary to produce the oils and moisturizing agents that protect the skin from dryness. This can occur anywhere on the body, resulting in dry penis skin for many men.

A person does not have to be severely malnourished to get dry skin, on the penis or elsewhere. Sometimes it can come from being severely deficient in only one or two nutrients, as opposed to being deficient in all or most of them.

Among the vitamins that are most important for maintaining healthy skin is vitamin E. Skin deficient in vitamin E cannot contain moisture properly, nor can it fully engage in the healing process. This leads to the continuous development of dead skin cells and dry, scaly skin.

Lack of antioxidants damages the skin because this nutrient is the first line of defense against free radicals and the damage they do to the skin through oxidative stress. They also help create collagen and elastin, proteins that give skin it suppleness and elasticity.

Amending one’s diet to increase vitamin E and antioxidant intake is crucial for fighting dry skin, including dry penis skin, caused by malnutrition. A nutritionist can help devise a proper diet for this purpose.

Often, dry penis skin due to malnutrition can be healed more quickly if a man utilizes a superior penis health crème (http://www.man1health.com/Order.php health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) on a consistent basis. Naturally, the best crème will have vitamin E, but it will be even more effective if it also contains a high end emollient to provide a double moisturizing whammy. Shea butter, distilled from the fruit of the Shea tree, is an excellent emollient. Since free radicals can be an issue with dry penis skin, the crème ideally will contain an antioxidant as well. Alpha lipoic acid is a potent antioxidant which should be part of every penile health plan.
