Dry - Sensitive skin is a common skin condition characterized by a lack of the right amount of water in the most superficial layer of the skin, the epidermis. While dry skin and sensitive skin tend to affect men and women equally, older individuals are usually much more prone to dry skin.
While bathing and showering adds water to the skin, skin that feels overly tight after bathing can indicate excessive removal of water and natural skin oils.
One of the most common factors causing dry skin is frequent application of hard soaps. The type of soap can have a big impact on dry skin. Soap is an emulsifier that removes oils on the skin. The more often the skin is scrubbed with soap, the more oil is removed, which ultimately results in drier skin. Excessive use of soaps can aggravate dry skin.
The best treatment for Dry - Sensitive skin is daily lubrication because most dry skin is due to external causes, treatments such as creams and lotions can be applied and can effectively manage the skin problem. Often dry skin can be improved by applying body moisturizing cream and day and night face creams.
Before sensitive skin can absorb active substances, the basic problem of dry skin, the impaired barrier function, must be treated. The essential components of the barrier layer are free fatty acids, ceramides and cholesterol, which in their interaction ensure that a liquid crystalline gel network is formed. This can effectively store the moisture. If the barrier layer is brittle due to internal or external influences, the moisture storage decreases, the skin is no longer protected and is dry and sensitive.
Phytosterols are components of vegetable oils, which can be incorporated into the skin as the main component of the lipid layer, but which also occur in the skin itself. Their main function is to strengthen the barrier layer, protect the skin and bind moisture in the skin. They reduce inflammation and relieve the typical symptoms of sensitive, dry skin, such as itching, burning, scaling and roughness.
