Dry skin

Wheter your skin is dry or not it is also influenced by many factors such as health, genes, the influence of hormones, damage due to UV radiation, the use of the drying or irritating cleaning products and skin care products. Of course we can with appropriate and consistent care improve the situation of dry skin.

Contrary to popular belief, it is necessary that dry skin gets a lot of  fat and not moisture. Dry skin lacks mostly of fat, which forms a protective outer layer of skin. That kind of skin cant keep the moisture inside but it is continually losing it so all in all we get a vicious circle. Researches has shown that between normal andr y skin there is not much difference in moisture conent, but lack of fat leads to lack of moisture in the skin.
