Dry skin

Dry skin

Rough, tense and fragile, dry skin is dehydrated by an imbalance of the hydrolipidic film that protects it. It then becomes uncomfortable and dull.

Targeted nourishing skin care products and good everyday habits are needed to restore health and beauty. Under normal circumstances, our skin is covered with a thin film of sebum and sweat called the hydrolipidic film, which protects it from losing too much water and thus maintains a good level of hydration. But sometimes the balance of the hydrolipidic film is upset, through insufficient lipids and/or water. The skin becomes dry, coarse to the touch and uncomfortable. It loses its elasticity and suppleness and feels tight, particularly after a bath or wash. It can also be itchy with rashes and flaking. Vulnerable, dry skin reacts strongly to external factors (cold, heat, wind, scratches, etc.). Certain types of skin are particularly subject to dryness: fine, dry, fair skins and aged skins which produce less sebum and do not retain moisture as well. However, all skin types can go through periods of dryness or have dry patches.

 Different factors can cause or exacerbate skin dryness:

  • Sun, cold and sudden temperature changes.
  • Warm dry air in heated premises in winter.
  • Certain medical treatments.
  • Hot baths and aggressive cleansing products (soap) which dissolve part of the hydrolipidic film.
  • Chlorinated water in swimming pools.
  • Certain dietary deficiencies (vitamin A, essential fatty acids, trace elements, etc.).

Better habits and targeted skin care are often enough to restore a supple, comfortable skin

  • Take quick showers with warm water instead of hot baths.
  • When washing, avoid soap and use a mild cleanser especially suitable for dry skin (enriched with fatty agents).
  • Moisturise your face and body every day with a product especially designed for dry skin.
  • Do not go to bed without removing make-up and use a nourishing make-up remover (oil or milk).
  • Drink at least 1 1/2 litres of water a day.
  • Do not put the heating up too high in winter and use a humidifier if necessary.
  • Adopt a balanced diet, using different oils (olive, canola, walnut, grapeseed, etc.) to make sure you get the right essential fatty acids.
  • Use protection when exposed to the sun.

If your skin remains dry despite all the above precautions, or if your skin dryness is related to eczema or psoriasis, you will need to see a dermatologist who will prescribe suitable treatment.
