Why do I need to moisturize my skin?
Water plays a fundamental role not only for beauty, but also for skin health. Our epidermis has the ability to retain the right level of water and, when this process occurs regularly, the skin appears radiant, supple and compact. On the contrary, a skin lacking in water is more exposed to external aggressions and appears dehydrated, chapped and in some cases more reactive.
What are the signs of dehydrated skin?
When the skin is thirsty, it begins to send out warning signs: itching, uneven texture, dryness and even flaking. This happens because the epidermis is no longer able to retain water, and the hydrolipidic film thins, causing an increase in trans epidermal water loss (TWLM).
What are the causes of dehydration?
The passage of time can reduce the skin's ability to retain water, also facilitating the appearance of fine wrinkles and fine lines: the first step towards a young and healthy skin is to have hydrated skin.
Other causes that can reduce the skin's ability to maintain the right rate of hydration are external factors:
- climatic changes
- high temperatures
- air conditioning
- sun exposure
Which skin types need hydration?
Dehydration is not only linked to dry skin, but also affects combination, oily and sensitive ones. Hydration is a need not to be underestimated.
DRY AND DEHYDRATED SKIN
Dry and dehydrated skins are often characterized by an altered skin barrier with a lack of sebum and water, especially on the surface. The ideal is a cleanser that respects the natural protective film, giving it an emollient and protective effect.
he excessive presence of sebum in combination and oily skin often leads to the use of aggressive and astringent cleansing products which, in addition to acting on these excesses, interfere with the amount of water present in the epidermis. For this you need specific hydration that does not clog the pores and restore the skin barrier in balance.
Sensitive skin is red, fragile and more exposed to external aggressions. It therefore requires intense but delicate hydration, able to soothe redness and itching by strengthening and protecting the skin barrier.
