IS THE SKIN ON YOUR FACE VERY DRY? YOU HAVE TO READ THIS

The priority to combat dryness and have healthy skin is to restore and maintain its lipid balance.

In this post, we will reveal to you what factors can cause it and how to combat it effectively.

Dry skin is a common problem that affects many people around the world. It is mainly due to a lack of lipids , that is, natural oils that help retain moisture in the skin and keep it soft and supple. This lipid deficiency damages the skin barrier , producing moisture loss, dry, rough and sensitive skin .

WHAT IS DRY SKIN?

Dry skin is a type of skin that lacks the proper amount of lipids and moisture . This may be due to a variety of factors, including genetic , environmental , and lifestyle factors .

Dry skin tends to feel tight and rough to the touch, and can show peeling , redness , and even cracking in more severe cases.

It's important to distinguish between dry and dehydrated skin: while dry skin is a type of skin, dehydration is a temporary condition that can affect any skin type when it doesn't receive enough hydration.

CAUSES OF DRY SKIN

There are several factors that can contribute to the development of dry skin. These include:

  1. External and environmental factors : Dry weather, wind, cold and excessive sun exposure can remove moisture from the skin and cause dryness.
  2. Genetics : Some people have a genetic predisposition to having dry skin.
  3. Harsh Chemicals – Using cleansing and skin care products that contain harsh or irritating ingredients can strip the skin of its natural oils and cause dryness.
  4. Hot baths and showers : Hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness. Ideally, use warm water, a term that can be subjective. Ideally, it should be hot enough to effectively cleanse the skin and remove dirt and excess oil, but not so hot that it causes dryness or irritation.
  5. Aging : Over time, skin tends to produce fewer natural oils, which can leave it drier and prone to moisture loss.

CERAMIDES AND PEPTIDES. ESSENTIAL ALLIES AGAINST THE DRYNESS OF YOUR FACE

Peptides and ceramides are key ingredients in skin care , especially if you suffer from dry skin.

Below, we explain what they are, what they do and why they are necessary to treat dry skin:

CERAMIDES

WHAT ARE CERAMIDES?

Ceramides are natural lipids found in the outermost layer of the skin, known as the skin barrier . They are essential components of this skin's protective barrier and play a fundamental role in maintaining skin hydration , protecting it and maintaining its health .

WHAT DO CERAMIDES DO?

· Maintain the skin barrier : Ceramides help form a protective barrier on the skin's surface, which helps prevent moisture loss and protects against external aggressors such as irritants and allergens.

· Retain moisture : By strengthening the skin barrier, ceramides help retain moisture in the skin, necessary to keep skin hydrated , soft and supple .

· Improve elasticity : ceramides also help to improve the elasticity of the skin, making it more resistant to dryness , wrinkles and other signs of aging.

WHY ARE CERAMIDES NECESSARY FOR DRY SKIN?

For people with dry skin, the skin barrier is less effective at retaining moisture and protecting the skin from external aggressors.

The use of products containing ceramides helps to strengthen and repair this barrier, combating dry skin.

PEPTIDES

WHAT ARE PEPTIDES?

Peptides are chains of amino acids, that is, the building blocks of proteins in the skin . Its functions in skin care are diverse, from stimulating collagen and elastin production to improving elasticity and firmness .

WHAT DO PEPTIDES DO?

· They stimulate collagen production : improving firmness and elasticity , and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines .

· Moisturize and nourish : helping to keep the skin soft , flexible and well hydrated .

· Protect against oxidative damage : protecting the skin against damage caused by free radicals and other environmental aggressors.

WHY ARE PEPTIDES NECESSARY FOR DRY SKIN?

Peptides provide hydration , stimulate collagen production to improve firmness and elasticity , and protect skin against oxidative damage .

In short, ceramides and peptides are key ingredients in skin care, especially dry skin.

They help strengthen the skin barrier , retain moisture , improve elasticity and firmness , and protect the skin against environmental damage , resulting in more hydrated, softer and healthier skin.
