WHAT IS DRY SKIN ACTUALLY?
Many people suffer from dry skin and if you are one of them then your skin needs your help. Dry skin is also known as a dry condition or sebostasis. The terms problem skin, sensitive or sensitive skin are often used as synonyms. Since the skin is usually very thin, dry skin often occurs together with hypersensitivity to external influences and a high level of sensitivity. Dry skin is caused by a greatly reduced sebum production and this in turn causes your protective hydrolipid film to become unstable because the water-binding properties of sebum are missing. As a side symptom, dry skin is often fine-pored, thin or even scaly and rough. A severely reduced sebum production makes the protective hydrolipid film of your skin unstable because the water-binding properties of sebum are missing.
