Signs of dry skin
How do you know if you have dry or very dry skin? Assess if your sensation on your own skin matches the following:
● The skin is dull, lifeless, prone to peeling.
● After washing with water or a cleanser, the skin feels dry and tight.
● Exposure to adverse factors (eg exposure to active sun, long walks in the wind or cold) is often accompanied by peeling and a general unhealthy appearance of the skin.
If at least 2 signs out of 3 matched, most likely, out of all skin types, you got exactly dry.
Causes of dry skin
Dry skin may be due to the fact that it is naturally prone to lack or insufficient replenishment of lipids — fats that maintain the protective functions of the skin and prevent the loss of moisture from its cells. That is why it often looks thin, too fragile or dehydrated (although, in fact, any skin type can suffer from dehydration).
In addition, due to a too thin lipid layer, dry skin is prone to earlier aging, can become wrinkled faster, lose firmness and elasticity. Therefore, the action of products for dry facial skin is usually aimed not only at moisturizing it, but also at actively maintaining the hydrolipid barrier of the skin and preserving moisture in the upper layers of the epidermis.
What to do with dry skin at home?
First of all, it is necessary to choose the right cosmetics for dry skin. Pay attention to Mineral 89 products from the VICHY brand. All products in this range contain VICHY volcanic thermal water and hyaluronic acid with proven effectiveness.
Hyaluronic acid not only intensively moisturizes the skin, but also retains moisture in the upper layers of the epidermis, maintaining a pleasant feeling of skin smoothness for a long time. And VICHY volcanic thermal water, enriched with 15 minerals, helps to normalize the pH of the skin, strengthens and protects the skin. This increases its barrier properties and helps retain moisture.
Express-mask based on tissue-based microalgae with 2 types of hyaluronic acid for intense hydration and strengthening of the skin barrier.
The mask is designed for daily care of skin that is exposed to aggressive environmental influences. Suitable for all skin types.
If facial skin requires systemic and regular care, competent selection of products and constant maintenance of moisture and protective functions of the skin, we recommend that you pay attention to the Mineral89 line of care products created in Vichy Laboratories.
