How do I choose a daily skin care product that is appropriate for my dry skin?
Did you know?
If your skin is permanently dry, it could be because of a lack of lipids. This type of fat plays an important role in keeping skin supple and reinforcing the natural cutaneous barrier that provides protection from external aggression. Skin that has insufficient lipids becomes dry and its cutaneous barrier weakens, allowing irritants to enter. It is more vulnerable and easily damaged, and can quickly become uncomfortable.
What to do on a daily basis
Remember to hydrate yourself properly and drink at least one litre of water each day. Avoid anything that can harm your skin, such as overly intensive cleansing, and protect it with a moisturising cream that you can apply every morning and evening. Temporary dehydration can easily be regulated with proper care. However, if your skin remains dry, contact your dermatologist, who will make a more precise diagnosis.
