what is dry skin?
It is often more cracked thannormal skin, fine-pored, feels rough, tends to flake and looks pale to dull: dry skin lacks moisture. This is often related to an underfunction of the sebaceous glands: Because they produce less sebum, the acid mantle of your skin cannot stabilize. This allows the moisture to evaporate from your skin faster. The result is dry skin aka xerosis.
Dry skin is uncomfortable because itmore delicate and sensitive is than normal skin. It also tends to wrinkle more because the surface of the skin is less elastic.
WHAT CARE FOR DRY SKIN?
Taking care of dry skin is primarily about:natural moisturizing factors (NMS) of the skin to regulate. For this you need a care program that hydrates your skin and also restores the skin's own protective acid mantle. Valuable amino acids as well as urea and hyaluronic acid are important ingredients here, as they can plump up the skin and strengthen the connective tissue and tension. The supply of trace elements and panthenol is also essential for dry skin, as it protects against inflammation caused by external influences.
TIPS FOR DRY SKIN
Your skin lacks moisture, so you need to give it some. Onemoisturizer with urea and hyaluron are effective means to bind moisture in the skin and refresh the skin. Make sure that your facial care can create an occlusive cell protection. This means that it supports the skin's own protective acid mantle and ensures that the moisture does not evaporate too quickly from the skin.
Tip 2:pH neutral
Cleansing products with alkalis and surfactants are absolutely not suitable for cleaning dry skin: They damage the skin's own protective barrier and only dry out the skin further. Grab onefacial cleanser that gently and pH-neutrally cleanses your skin without drying it out any further.
Dry skin is often the result of an unhealthy lifestyle: cigarettes and alcohol excessively dry out the body and skin, causing wrinkles and inflammation. But direct sunlight is also dangerous, especially for people who tend to have dry skin. You should avoid UV light accordingly and use suitable sun protection.
Tip 4:Lots of water
The moisture in your skin can't come from your moisturizer alone: you also need to drink plenty of fluids! The rule of thumb is at least 30 ml of water per kilogram of body weight. Clear water is perfect for this, but unsweetened teas or the occasional juice spritzer are also ok.
