Dry or dehydrated skin

Dry skin is a permanent condition caused by a lack of sebum. Sebum is an oily film created by the sebaceous glands to protect facial skin from external aggression and retain water naturally present in the epidermis. If you have dry to very dry skin, it's because the sebaceous glands are not very active: your skin becomes very sensitive to external aggression, losing moisture very quickly as it no longer has a protective film. For some people, this condition is part of their genetic make-up, while for others it's a consequence of age. In fact, normal aging of the body leads to a slowdown in the activity of the sebum-producing sebaceous glands. Lacking water and lipids, the skin dries out.

Unlike dry skin, dehydrated skin is a transitory state during which the cutaneous barrier is damaged by external factors. Dehydration is linked to temperature changes and everyday aggressions such as wind, cold, heating, air conditioning, pollution and the sun. Dehydration can affect all skin types.

Signs of dry skin:

  • Constant tightness and discomfort
  • Rough to the touch
  • Crocodile-skin" effect with peeling skin
  • Unobtrusive pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Difficulty penetrating skin care products

Signs of dehydrated skin:

  • Rough skin, tightness and discomfort on targeted areas of the cheeks and eye contour, especially after a shower or after rinsing your face.
  • Localized fine lines at the corners of the eyes
  • Visible pores on the T-zone (nose, forehead, chin)
  • Immediate improvement in symptoms with the application of a moisturizing cream
