Step 2: Your current skin condition
What helps against dry skin? We tailor our care recommendations for you to this skin type. Dry skin can show itself in different skin conditions. In order to optimally adapt your care, please choose from the following descriptions and assign your current skin type to the following criteria:
Sensitivity & Redness
Sensitive skin reacts particularly quickly to stimuli such as cold, heat or touch.
- Partial or flat reddening is the order of the day.
- This is often accompanied by a feeling of tension, stinging or itching.
Dry skin can also show impurities.
- Impurities do not occur over the entire surface, but are rather limited to smaller areas.
- The cause of impurities in dry skin is not a general excess of sebum, but a disturbed skin-lipid barrier.
- Incorrect care with irritating ingredients, or hormonal fluctuations can weaken the skin barrier.
Tired, pale looking skin
Dry skin is literally predestined to have a rather pale appearance.
- Dead corneal flakes on the surface of the skin reduce the coveted "glow" and feel rough to the touch when the fingertips are slightly moved over the facial skin.
- Compared to other skin types, dry skin has a lower water content in the upper skin layers.
- Light is not completely reflected by the skin and the skin appears pale.
wrinkles, sagging contours
Visible signs of premature skin aging and dry skin usually have the same causes.
- A too low moisture content on the surface makes the skin appear flaccid and wrinkled.
- In the deeper skin layers, sagging collagen fibres also contribute to the face gradually losing its sharpness of contour.
As with any skin type, dry skin can also show pigmentation spots or hyperpigmentation.
- There are many possible triggers for this irregular skin coloration
- The most frequent trigger is UV radiation.
- Pigment spots usually occur in exposed places, i.e. in places exposed to the sun.
