DRY AND DEHYDRATED SKIN

Did you know that moisturizing is one of the most important steps in the daily care of your skin?

Healthy skin is essential for our health and well-being.  The skin is the largest organ of the human body and our body's first line of defense against external agents (bacteria, fungi, trauma). The skin also has several functions such as sensory (touch, pressure, cold, heat, pain), excretory (elimination of substances), regulation of body temperature and maintenance of water and electrolyte balance.

The skin consists of three layers: the epidermis, the dermis, and the subcutaneous layer. The outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis, is covered by a film rich in lipids and water that is called the hydrolipidic film.  This film acts as a protective skin barrier, and its integrity ensures skin well-being.

The balance of water in the skin is essential to maintain the proper functioning of all cells, in all its layers. Hydrated skin, where there is a balance between water intake and evaporative losses, is less vulnerable to external aggression than dry, dehydrated skin, where the skin's natural barrier and protective function are affected. On the other hand, this type of skin looks rough and dull, and is more susceptible to flaking, itching and the proliferation of microorganisms that can lead to the appearance of various skin conditions.
