Dry skin is a fairly common skin type. It causes tightness, redness, sometimes gives a crocodile skin effect, and feelings of discomfort. How to treat dry skin on a daily basis, naturally but effectively?

HOW TO RECOGNIZE DRY SKIN?
Dry skin is easy to identify. Its pores are barely or not at all visible, and it has areas of dryness on different parts of the face. If you have very dry skin on your face, additional symptoms may be present, such as rough skin and fine lines of dehydration.
All this comes from the fact that your epidermis works in slow motion, and does not retain the elements that are essential to its flexibility. The hydrolipidic film being altered, the skin no longer has its shield against external aggressions. In addition, it becomes dehydrated because it is no longer able to retain water, and lacks lipids due to insufficient sebum. Dryness and dehydration of the skin then appear.
WHAT CAUSES DRY SKIN?
Dry skin on the face can be caused by a variety of factors:
- External aggressions such as the cold, wind, sun and pollution, which greatly weaken the epidermis. The face is the least protected part of the body and therefore the most exposed to aggression, which explains why it is one of the areas most affected by skin dryness.
- The natural ageing of the skin: as we age, collagen fibres, elastin and hyaluronic acid are produced much less and present in the body. The epidermis becomes thinner and more fragile.
- A bad skin care routine: very dry skin on the face can be caused by inappropriate skin care. For example, if you exfoliate too much, or use irritating products that will cause dry skin.
- A deficient diet: the food you eat must provide your body and skin with all the nutrients they need to function properly. If you don't get enough vitamin A, trace elements and fatty acids from your diet, you will feel the effects on your skin.
HOW TO DEEPLY NOURISH A VERY DRY SKIN?
In addition to an adequate supply of water, it is essential to help dry or very dry skin regain moisture and nutrition. As part of a suitable routine, the rule is to use gentle, non-chemical products so as not to cause irritation. To apply them, simple effleurages should be carried out. Dry skin requires special precautions so as not to weaken it further.
GENTLE SKIN CLEANSING
As always, the treatment of a face with very dry skin starts with a good cleansing. After all, cleanliness is the basis of healthy skin, which can better defend itself and absorb moisturising care optimally. Therefore, make-up removal and cleansing should not be forgotten or carried out incorrectly. Indeed, if you remain with make-up on, your skin cannot breathe properly. Make-up removal and deep cleansing is done in several steps.
First of all, an oily solution should be applied to dry facial skin to remove make-up and oily substances that have accumulated on the skin during the day. Our organic make-up remover oil is suitable for all skin types, even dry skin. It is also very pleasant, as it leaves the skin soft, supple and without any oily film.
Then, the application of a cleansing gel is the perfect care to deeply cleanse your skin after removing make-up. It removes the last residues and perfectly frees the pores. Your skin is then purified.
Finally, a floral water will complete the cleaning of your skin, removing the limescale residues present in tap water. It also has the effect of soothing irritation of the epidermis, giving it more radiance and freshness.
