Dry skin originates from a change in the skin’s barrier function, manifesting itself by the lack of lipids on its surface, which leaves it without the ability to retain water. Dry skin becomes more permeable to external agents and pathogens, presenting a sensation of tightness and itching. Return hydration to your skin with a daily skincare routine with a rich texture to comfort dry skin with Caudalie Vinosource SOS or Bioderma Hidrabio Cream Rich for example.
DRY SKIN VS DEHYDRATED SKIN
Dehydrated skin can often feel dry, but there is a significant difference between the two:
- Dehydrated skin is a skin condition with a lack of water in the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin);
- Dry skin occurs due to the lack of lipid production by the sebaceous glands.
