What Is Dry Skin?
Dry skin occurs when the skin lacks oil because it does not produce enough sebum. Sebum is a greasy film created by the sebaceous glands which protects the skin from external aggressions and retains water in the epidermis.
When the upper layer of the epidermis lacks lipids and water, it can no longer protect the skin as its protective film is absent. This can become uncomfortable to varying degrees. With age, the sebaceous glands are less active, so the skin tends to dry out more. Drought can very easily be mistaken for dehydration.
Some symptoms of dry skin are:
- Lack of flexibility
- Taut and rough skin
- An occasional itching and a burning sensation.
Dry skin can make wrinkles more noticeable. Since it’s nice to have soft, supple skin, you have to take care of it.
Some Causes of Dry Skin
- Slowly active sebaceous glands
- Thin skin
- Excessive exposure to cold and sun
- Taking certain medications
- Alcohol and smoking
- Excessive cleaning
- Unsuitable cosmetic products
Example of Dry Skin
Thanks to the 3D photos taken of your face, we will be able to analyze the different layers of your skin and thus determine the origin of the dryness. Following this assessment, we will be able to build an effective treatment plan that is tailored to your needs. Several solutions are possible. They can be used alone or in combination with others. For example, it is possible to combine medicated creams at home with or without treatments in the clinic.
