Dry skin

It is a type of skin that produces less sebum than normal skin.

  • Due to the lack of sebum, dry skin lacks the lipids it needs to retain moisture and form a protective

barrier against external influences.

  • Dry skin is often characterized by roughness and stiffness to the touch, a feeling of tightness and

irritability, a dull appearance and low elasticity.

An interesting fact is that significantly more women suffer from dry skin than men, and with age, any

skin becomes drier.

Moisturising the skin occurs as a result of water retention in the deep layers and evaporation.

The skin constantly loses water due to:

  • sweating- the active release of water from the glands caused by heat, stress and physical activity.
  • transepidermal water loss (TEWL) has a natural passive way of losing water, when the skin loses about half a liter of water per day from deeper layers.

  • Natural moisturizing factors, especially urea, amino acids and lactic acid, which bind and retain water.
  • Lipids of the epidermis, such as ceramides, fatty acids and cholesterol, which are necessary for healthy skin barrier function. As a result of these factors, the barrier function of the skin may be at risk.

Nuts and avocados or supplements that contain omega-3 or omega-6 fatty acids, such as fish oil and flaxseed oil, should be included in the diet. Do not forget to drink enough clean water.
