With dry skin, you have low sebum production in the skin and the skin lacks moisture and fat. The pores are small, often almost invisible, and the skin quickly feels tight and stiff. The lack of moisture and fat means that the skin barrier is more exposed and weakens more easily so that the skin becomes unbalanced. The skin also reacts more easily to ingredients in products, pollution and cold than other skin types.
Dry skin is easily irritated and red and the skin is more susceptible to becoming sensitized or developing eczema. Age changes often appear earlier in people with dry skin.
Dry skin needs moisture, nourishment and fatty acids to compensate for the low sebum production. Rich and nourishing creams that strengthen and protect the skin barrier help retain moisture in the skin.
How dry the skin is depends on the amount of fatty acids in the epidermis. This is influenced both by what the skin is exposed to, but also by, among other things, gender, age, genetics and hormone levels. The fatty acids in the epidermis are an important part of the barrier against the environment and retain moisture in the skin.
The skin's resilience is affected by several factors and the skin's needs change as a result of changing seasons, temperature and humidity. In general, dry skin worsens in winter and when it is exposed to UV rays. In winter, you can advantageously choose richer products and add a moisturizing serum to your skincare routine.
Some people can treat themselves to dry skin by using strong products and cleansers on the skin that wear on the skin's barrier. A defective skin barrier is unable to retain moisture, and the skin therefore becomes dehydrated, sore, red and irritated.
Our recommendation for dry skin is also suitable for sensitive skin, as sensitive skin is often present at the same time. The products should add moisture and plenty of fatty acids to the skin, as well as protect the skin against harmful influences.
