In brief: Dry skin
As you get older your skin gets drier. To combat this do the following take short showers that are not so hot.
Only use soap in armpits and groin use a cream not a lotion moisturizer every night if you have no plans during a weekend skip taking a shower-your skin will thank you for that.
