Many women suffer from dry skin but before you can treat dry skin properly, you need to know eactly what it is and what is causing it. We spoke to the experts at La Roche Posay at their recent launch of new Nutritic Intense to find out.
According to them, dry skin has a low lipid-content and a reduced barrier function. In other words the act of protecting the body from external agressors is low. As a result, the skin is poorly protected and vulnerable to external agressors such as physical trauma, UV rages, irrirants along with many others.
This deficiency of lipids leads to a disappearance of the intercellular cement breakdown which causes cells to become detached which leads to flaking. Dry skin in sensitive, easily irritated and shows imperfections such as redness and dry patches. It is characterised by tightness or itching sensations.
La Roche Posay has a broad range of products to treat dry skin including their brand new Nutritic Intense
. This new formula is the first skincare to reconstitute dry skin layer by layer to relieve painful sensations and offer comfort, suppleness and soothing to skin. We recently got to try it out first and found the healing properties were amazing with an improvement in dry skin taking place in a matter of days.
La Roche Posay Nutritic Intense is on sale in all good pharmacies nationwide.
