What are the signs of dry skin?

1. What is dry skin?

Dry skin is skin that lacks both moisture and lipids. Its intercellular lipidic cement is lacking in lipids and its hydrolipidic film is less substantial than in 'normal' skin types. This means your skin is more vulnerable to environmental damage. The result? Skin that feels tight, rough and uncomfortable, with fine lines appearing on the surface.

2. Pamper the skin on your face

Dry skin needs tender loving care. You need to comfort and nourish your skin to boost its hydrolipidic film, especially on the face, which is more exposed to environmental damage. Morning and evening, moisturise deep down with the Hydra-Essentiel Rich Cream. Its creamy formula contains kalanchoe extract to provide dry skin with all the softness and nourishment it needs. In no time at all, your skin’s capacity to retain moisture is restored. The skin on your face is replenished, becoming smooth and glowing, with all discomfort banished. Once or twice a week, you can also treat yourself to the SOS Comfort Mask with nourishing mango butter. In just 10 minutes, the mask intensely nourishes your dry skin to restore suppleness, softness and comfort.

3. Don't forget the skin on your body

The skin on your body can be just as dry. As with your face, treat your body to daily nourishment with a rich, creamy product that will give it all the comfort it needs. Take things a step further and embrace the Perfect Hydration Programme, which brings together the Moisture-Rich Body Lotion, the Hand and Nail Treatment Cream and the Foot Beauty Treatment Cream!
