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.
