Dry skin is a common problem. The reason is a shortage of lipids as a protective barrier, natural moisturising factor (NMF) components and impaired ability of the skin to regulate the level of hydration and water concentration in its upper layers.
Remember that the skin protects the body against infections. If the epidermis is dry and cracked, the risk of dangerous microorganisms penetrating it increases. This makes it easier for infections and inflammatory conditions to occur, e.g. in the case of acne skin, thus hindering the course of therapy. Excessive dry skin is also associated with such diseases as AD, SD or acne rosacea and may have an autoimmune basis. Restoring the hydrolipidic balance is crucial in relation to the above mentioned problems, it is also of considerable importance in the prevention of wrinkle appearance.
