Dry skin - What are its causes and what can be done about it?
The skin is one of our most important protective barriers. It protects against the environment that surrounds us and gives us our appearance and sense of touch. When skin dries out, it can feel rough and tight, or even cracked or itchy, and your ability to perform normal functions is at risk.
Dryness is a leading cause of skin discomfort
A lack of hydration in the skin can present itself in various ways, from the typical roughness, peeling and small cracks to redness, inflammation, constant stiffness and itching. These symptoms vary depending on the severity and location of the dehydration.
Dry facial skin is based on several internal and external factors, which contribute to the same process of skin dehydration.
Hands tend to dry out as they are washed frequently.
Dry skin symptoms
At first, when the skin begins to lose moisture, it feels:
Dry facial skin
Dry skin on the face is uncomfortable and can age a person's appearance. Dehydration appears on the cheeks and around the eyes. Also the lips often dry out, especially in winter.
Relation of dry skin and sensitive skin
Dry skin is often sensitive and can become irritated when it comes into contact with aggressive detergents or soaps, or with unsuitable cosmetic products. When the skin's dermal barrier function is impaired, allergens, irritants, pollutants and microorganisms can penetrate more easily.
It is important to avoid skin care products that contain irritating ingredients, such as perfumes and dyes. Always check that the perfume has been dermatologically tested on sensitive skin.
Take care of dry skin
Facial cleansing for dry skin:
Cleaning is a fundamental step in which we remove impurities and traces of makeup. Choose one of our cleansers to leave your skin clean, fresh and healthy.
Dry skin hydration:
As a second step, we believe it is important to insist that hydration is key to achieving healthy and radiant skin. moisturize your skin every day, with a moisturizing fat not suitable for your skin type. If you are looking for a light sensation, opt for a moisturizer with a gel texture. Apply twice a day to the skin of the face and neck after cleansing, using circular movements for better absorption.
Dehydrated skin is thirsty, and needs constant hydration, throughout the day. To combat dehydration, the use of creams that quench thirst, with hyaluronic acid and other moisturizing ingredients, is recommended.
