Dry and Very Dry Skin is characterized by a tight feeling, stinging and sometimes by squames (scales) and redness. These skin types are delicate, irritation-prone and always dehydrated to some extent. They tend to show wrinkles sooner than other skin types.

Dry Skin results from a deterioration in the skin barrier. It may be genetic in origin, and accompany certain types of Atopic Dermatoses. It may also be due to various climatic or chemical factors. The stratum Corneum – a layer formed of so-called “cornified” cells, bound together by specific lipids such as Ceramides or essential fatty acids – no longer performs its function, of preserving optimum hydration by regulating the circulation of moisture in the skin. As a result, the cells of the stratum Corneum are no longer cohesive and the skin barrier becomes permeable to water. It cracks and splits, enabling external irritants to penetrate and trigger excessive skin reactions and the skin becomes severely dry, inflamed and itchy.
