Dry skin

Dry skin is a particular skin condition where the skin is wrinkled and less elastic, looking thin and frail. It is extremely delicate and can not stand the hard water and traditional soap. Their use cause a nagging feeling of "pulling leather" often associated with itching. If left untreated, irreversible damage occurs to the skin barrier function with inevitable acceleration of the damages age-related.

Dry skin is particularly sensitive to environmental aggressions such as cold, wind and sun. It is dehydrated and dull due to lack of water and is no-lipidic for the simultaneous lack of natural lipids.

This gradual loss of water and fat accelerates the aging process and encourages - even at a young age - the early appearance of lines and wrinkles. For this reason an anti-aging activity must be combined with the hydrating and nourishing activity. it is very important.


Should be cleaned gently with mild soap molecules which does not take away the already few natural lipids, studied specifically for the delicate and sensitive skin, easy to rinse to prevent damaging the delicate protective film with dirt and above all avoiding the sensation of pulling skin. To avoid products with alcohol and aggressive parabens.

After cleansing must be constantly nourished and hydrated in the morning and in the evening with treatments designed to fulfill three complementary and mutually reinforcing actions: moisturizing, anti-aging and emollient.

Dehydrated skin is withered to the magnifying glass, opaque, thin, easy to cracking and peeling, and if pressed, form small ripples, characteristic of the fabric of poor water.

The NO-LIPIDIC skin due to a lack of natural fats is presented to the magnifying glass breeze, fine, almost transparent. A deficiency in lipid hydrophilic, due to reduced or altered sebaceous gland secretion, leads to a deficiency of the protective lipid film surface followed by the depletion of the ""barrier function"" of the most superficial epidermal layer, the corneum.

In practice, these two skin conditions are not differentiable. In the vast majority of cases they co-exist and add up, even if dehydration is the first sign to appear.

The reduction of water and natural lipids is accelerated by a poor diet, by a deficient intake of vitamins and essential fatty acids, stress, hormonal imbalances and aggressive drugs and cosmetics. These incorrect habits lead over time to irreversible damage that make dry skin helpless and therefore more sensitive and responsive to environmental aggressors such as wind, cold, and sun, easy to redness and flaking.
