There are several visible signs that may indicate that you have dry skin and form a definitive beauty diagnosis. Let's start at the beginning: dry skin does not secrete enough sebum to ensure the barrier function of the hydrolipidic film, which is effective in combating external aggressions. Whose fault is this? Mainly to insufficient or lazy sebaceous glands...

From then on, pollution, air conditioning, heat and UV rays, wind, oxidative stress are all aggressions that weaken your skin and cause the famous tightness that you are a daily victim of. They also frequently cause desquamation in dry skin: dead cells clog the stratum corneum, making the skin rough and dulling the complexion. The bad news? This type of skin is not a passing skin condition, but a constant condition over the years that changes with the seasons.

What does dry skin need? 

Dry skin’s needs seem obvious: you have to give it nutrients to compensate for its lack of sebum.

The assets to be searched are lipids of course, but also ceramides, moisturizing actives such as hyaluronic acid, emollient agents and also assets that boost cellular activity of the skin and The protect against skin ageing As the Vitamin E or even the Vitamin C.

These ingredients can be found in day creams, face oils, serums, but also in the gentleness of a make-up remover and facial cleanser if you practice it right, double-cleaning.

Dry or dehydrated skin?

Obviously, it happens to combine these two problems: dehydration is a periodic skin condition that is grafted onto a permanent skin type. It is therefore not uncommon to see dry skin that is also dehydrated. Having lost its Lipid ShieldThe epidermis also suffers from a lack of water when it is over-stressed, as it is no longer able to retain water optimally. The skin is then visibly less bouncy.

All skin types (normal, dry, oily or combination), can be dehydrated at some point: a few days, a few weeks, depending on the season, ... 

A little tip if you are still in doubt: dry skin is often accompanied bya lack of sebum all over the body Dry hair, dry skin on legs, arms, knees etc... It is a general condition that makes us addicted to balms, oils, ointments and butters of all kinds. Feel free to do The test in this article to make sure you’ve got it clear!
