How is dry skin characterized?

Pathological dry skin is different from physiological dry skin. The latter is related to the skin's constitution and genetic constraints. It can be influenced by climatic variations and dietary factors.

Dry and dehydrated skin results from a lack of lipids and water in the epidermal layers. It can be recognized by the different sensations of discomfort felt by the person. Dry skin is characterized by tightness even after showering, fine and regular skin texture as well as the presence of red and rough areas. Expression lines may also appear and the complexion lacks radiance.

The nourishing cream for dry skin

To regain its suppleness and radiance, dry skin must be nourished. To do this, you can use a nourishing cream based on hyaluronic acid and shea butter. Hyaluronic acid is known for its plumping and regenerating effect on damaged skin cells. It also revitalizes the epidermal layers to smooth the skin. Shea butter, on the other hand, repairs desquamation. It is rich in vitamins A, D, E and F which nourish the skin, calm tightness and moisturize the skin in depth. This care also contains squalane which prevents the evaporation of water and plum oil which is appreciated for its antioxydant virtues.

Moisturizing cream for dry skin

The moisturizing face cream with 9 ingredients is also formulated to treat dry skin. Its active ingredients moisturize, nourish, purify, calm irritations and prevent bacterial proliferation. Some of the ingredients in this cream are also antioxidants. They delay the effects of aging and the appearance of marks such as wrinkles and fine lines by restoring the skin's suppleness and tone.

Creams for dry skin: application and contraindications

The nourishing cream and the moisturizing cream can be part of your daily beauty routine. They can be used in the morning as well as in the evening, after your usual serum.

The use of these creams is contraindicated in case of allergy to any of the ingredients. If you suffer from a latex allergy, avoid using the shea butter cream. The same applies if your skin is intolerant to coconut and its derivatives. If your skin has rashes such as acne, quite rare for dry skin, it is not recommended to use the cream containing coconut oil.
