Low moisture skin
The pore pattern of low-moisture skin is very fine. We can therefore hardly see the pores. The skin may look dull and sometimes various areas of the skin appear rough and scaly. In addition, the skin looks very thin and wrinkles are visible very early. Pimples, on the other hand, are a foreign word to this skin type. Due to the lack of moisture in the skin, redness and a burning sensation may appear on the skin (fine hairline cracks). Skin care creams with a moisturizing effect restore the balance of the skin barrier.
An exact diagnosis can only be made by a physician. Therefore, if you are unsure or have any problems, contact your dermatologist or house doctor.
- Consume 30-50ml of water per kilogram of body weight (e.g. water or tea).
- Enjoy the sun only in moderation, don’t forget sunscreen
- in winter use cold protection cream (vitamin A cream)
Our skin not only protects us from external influences, but is also our largest organ at the same time. It provides for a regulated heat exchange and for the transpiration process.
Our skin is built up in three layers. The top layer, the so-called epidermis consists of 90% horny layer and renews itself regularly. The dermis forms the second layer, which provides elastic skin through its connective tissue fibers. It is particularly affected by the natural aging process of the skin. The subcutis serves as cold protection and energy storage and consists of loose connective and fatty tissue.
