Dry Skin

Dry Skin

The first sign of dry to very dry skin is discomfort on the face and body, especially after a bath or shower. Discomfort can include tightness, stiffness, scales, “snake skin” and more. This poorly-nourished skin no longer fulfils its barrier role. While dryness is a characteristic of a certain skin type, it can easily be confused with dehydrated skin, which is usually a temporary condition you can learn more about here.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF DRY OR VERY DRY SKIN?

Dry skin is first defined by feelings. People feel that their skin is dry because they consider it is uncomfortable, tight and possibly rough and think the application of an appropriate product will provide relief. These symptoms can sometimes be accompanied by itching and burning sensations. A doctor, however, will decide that skin is dry (the term xerosis is also used) based on objective criteria: a dull appearance, specific clinical epidermal signs of desquamation, cracking, sometimes inflammation and loss of elasticity. Irregularities on the skin’s surface are even more significant with dry skin. Dry skin provides a favourable environment for eczema to develop, especially particularly in the form of pityriasis alba (dry patches). They generally appear on the cheeks and arms of children with systemic dry skin. Within the range of dry skin, there are various stages:

~ Dry skin: temporary discomfort, slight tightness and light desquamation; ~ Very dry skin: significant discomfort and tightness, intense desquamation, cracks, chapping; ~ Pre-atopic xerosis: rough, dry skin (dry patches) and light irritation.
