Dry skin appears dull and flaky. Sebum production of oil producing glands on dry skin is poor. Sebum provides a moisture protecting film over the skin helping to retain moisture.
Dry skin therefore lacks this protection and appears dry skin and dehydrated. Dry skin can sometimes feel tight & taut on washing and is prone to wrinkles & flaking making it prone to premature aging.
Dry skin needs frequent moisturising, particularly in winter conditions when air is drier and strips the skin of its natural moisture.
Any skin type can be sensitive skin. Sensitive skin reacts abnormally to certain environmental changes and certain products like detergents, chemicals, perfumes etc.
This type of skin develops redness, blotches and itch. This type of skin is generally thin and dry.
Sensitive skin requires careful management and awareness of the trigger factors precipitating sensitivity.
Keep the skin well moisturised to maintain the moisture protection and avoid harsh perfumed skin products. Go instead for hypoallergenic animal tested products.
