The skin barrier Skin is the first great line of defense of the human body to defend and protect itself . However, there are external agents such as the sun , pollution , dust , stress or cold that continually test it. Its repeated and continuous action on healthy skin weakens it, causing dryness and tightness.
Discover what care routine you need to keep it healthy and protect it from this annoying sensation.
WHY DOES MY SKIN TIGHTEN?
The feeling of tightness is very common in both dry and dehydrated skin, two related skin conditions:
- Dehydrated skin has a lack of water .
- Dry skin lacks more sebum production.
In both cases, the consequence is an imbalance in the hydrolipid film - formed by water and lipids as its name indicates - negatively affecting the dermal protection capacity.
|To compensate for the daily water loss from our skin, make sure you drink water in the recommended amounts.
Now, there is a big difference between them. Being a condition, dry skin always pulls and can even get worse if you are also dehydrated.
Dehydrated skin , on the other hand, is a circumstantial or specific condition.
For all these reasons, in both cases, it is crucial to provide adequate care.
