Most often, dry skin of the face occurs in women over40 years. This is due to the fact that over time, sebaceous glands that provide natural hydration and nourishment of the skin, significantly slow down the pace of work and the skin is deprived of natural protection. In connection with this, the production of collagen is reduced, which is responsible for the elasticity and smoothness of the skin. Also on the hydration of the skin are influenced by such factors as diet, stress, disruption of the digestive system, lack or absence of vitamins and minerals, disruption of the endocrine glands. Yes, the external factors - wind, sun, sea water, work at hot furnaces and the like, do not have the best effect on the skin. In young women, even the dry skin looks elastic, matte, there are no wrinkles, pores are imperceptible. But if you touch this skin, you can feel some dryness. The dryest parts of the face, as a rule, are whiskey and cheeks, while the forehead, chin, nose and nasolabial folds often shine. Usually this kind of skin is called beautiful, but this beauty is temporary. Dry skin hates washing with water, even if it is washed with a very greasy soap. Even the most common face cleaning for such skin becomes a serious test. Gradually, the attractiveness of the skin is lost. Dry skin is rough, not too elastic, its pattern is much sharper than in normal or oily skin. Often, dry skin is still very sensitive to wind and sun, temperature changes, various cosmetic products, does not tolerate even a small amount of water. From washing with water, the skin begins to "burn" and become covered with red spots. Therefore, care for dry skin requires special attention. If you take care of your skin correctly, you can prolong its attractiveness and youth for many years. Often, women with dry skin tend to improve the skin by more frequent washing, which for a short time releases the skin from peeling and returns an attractive look. But frequent washing, on the contrary, leads to the fact that the skin can not transfer water at all. Dry face skin should not often be washed with water. And especially you can not do this before you go out. Also, do not often use cosmetics with alcohol, as well as a variety of powders, whitening creams and whites. Cleaning the face should also be done without the use of various pilling and scrubs. If washing is required, then it is better to use only soft water at room temperature, because both hot and cold water contribute to the fact that the skin becomes flabby, wrinkles appear. For dry skin, air procedures are useful, especially in a humid mild climate. Sunbathing is also useful, but only in small quantities and only early in the morning. If you are going to bathe in a bath, bath, pool, river or under a shower, you should first apply face cream, vegetable oil or any other fat: unsalted butter, sour cream or lard.
