Characteristics of dry skin
Dry skin feels rough and has flaky areas. It is less elastic, it feels tight, and is easily irritated. This is because the skin lacks moisture and lipids – i.e. fats. These are essential to keep the skin’s barriers intact. Dry skin often looks rough, is prone to stress and quickly becomes aggravated or irritated by external influences such as temperature and the environment. Its ability to regenerate is impaired and its protective barriers are weakened. In order to restore its moisture balance and activate its protective function, dry skin needs the right care products. Rich face creams with plant oils and hydrophilic substances strengthen the skin’s barriers, store the skin’s own moisture better and make dry skin look firm and beautiful again.
