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 underactive sebum glands: Because they produce less sebum, the protective acid mantle of your skin cannot stabilize. As a result, the moisture from your skin evaporates faster. The result is dry skin also known as xerosis.
Dry skin is uncomfortable because of itmore sensitive and sensitive is than normal skin. It also has a greater tendency to wrinkle, because the surface of the skin is less elastic.
WHAT CARE FOR DRY SKIN?
Taking care of dry skin is primarily about thatnatural moisturizing factors (NMS) to regulate the skin. 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 hyaluron are important ingredients here, as they can plump up the skin and strengthen the connective tissue and the 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 have to give it some. OneMoisturizer with urea and hyaluron are effective means of binding moisture in the skin and freshening up 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 from the skin does not evaporate too quickly.
Tip 2:pH neutral
Cleaning products with alkalis and tensides are absolutely not suitable for cleaning dry skin: They damage the skin's own protective barrier and thus only dry out the skin further. Grab oneFacial cleanser to, which cleanses your skin gently and pH-neutral, without drying out the skin 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 cannot come from your moisturizers alone: you also have 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 occasional juice spritzers are also ok.
