Why nourish dry skin?
Unlike dehydrated skin, which lacks water, dry skin is skin that lacks lipids, in other words fatty substances. The hydrolipidic film no longer plays its role and water evaporates more easily. It is therefore essential to nourish your skin to restore suppleness and radiance. We’re here to explain everything to you.
When your skin is hungry, you can feel it. Your skin is always tight, itchy, you don't feel good about yourself (so to speak).
But that can also be seen: the skin tends to display darters in winter, you know, these little round, slightly pink dry patches.
It also looks "wrinkled", red patches may appear during the day, the skin is thinner, it may peel, your complexion looks dull...
This is your reason why it's all about giving your skin what it needs.
I feel that my skin is getting tighter and tighter and before I get to the point of scratching I prefer to put on some cream to moisturize it.
Dry skin is weakened skin that lacks lipids. What does it mean in concrete terms?
Our epidermis could be compared to a wall.
In this wall, our cells are the bricks and lipids mixed with an intercellular cement in a way. They ensure cells cohesion. They help maintain the skin's barrier, limit water loss, help fight against external aggressions...
You have understood that if this cement is missing, the skin is more porous and less protected.
This is why you should not simply moisturize but nourish your skin when you suffer from dryness.
How to deeply nourish dry skin
Nutrition begins well before cleansing. Choose soap-free, ultra-rich products or lipid-replenishing cleansing gels that, like their name, help restore the right level of lipids to your skin while cleansing it without irritating it.
Then only, you will have the opportunity to step into the next step: nourish and protect. To do this, turn to nutritive or lipid-replenishing products. Objective: strengthens the skin's barrier and maintains a good level of hydration. A tip, apply your skincare products morning and evening. The night is the ideal moment when the skin renews and regenerates itself.
Major remedies for major problems. In the case of particularly dry skin, a nutrient treatment is necessary. Whether for your face, your hands or your legs, a cold cream treatment will act intensely.
Quick tip: these products are ideal for very dry areas often wrinkled: heels, elbows, cuticles, etc. or to protect from the winter cold.
Adopting a balanced diet also contributes to healthy skin:
