Dry or dehydrated … as there is a difference between them; dry skin refers more to skin that is lacking in oil whereas dehydrated skin is characterized by a lack of moisture. Both damage the skin leaving it more sensitive and prone to irritation as well as flaky and a feeling of tautness.
- Use a hydrating serum under moisturizer to provide extra protection
- Take nutricosmetic supplements as they help to build up the skin's barrier function from within
- Give your skin a weekly treatment mask
- Exfoliate but be gentle as too harsh will damage the barrier function
