The obvious symptoms of dry skin

Skin dryness does not only manifest itself on the face. This can concern all parts of the body which will very quickly be subjected to unpleasant sensations of tightness, tingling and itching. Without a rich treatment, the skin can quickly become rough and scaly to the touch.

The visible signs don't lie either! When the hydrolipidic barrier is altered and no longer fulfills its protective function, you may see scales and cracks appear. Then, the complexion becomes dull. It should also be noted that when the skin barrier is damaged, it exposes the skin to irritation and inflammation .

What promotes dry skin?

Certain lifestyle habits can dry out the skin quickly . Avoid as much as possible:

  • Hot water and prolonged baths which tend to dissolve the fat on the epidermis.
  • Perfumed products, containing alcohol or other additives.
  • Irritating scrubs that certainly cleanse, but will dry out the skin at the same time.
  • Physical attacks by rubbing the skin after showering or bathing.

There are also other factors that tend to attack and dry out the skin, such as the sun, pollution, climate change, etc.
