What helps with dry skin?
Our skin can be the best friend in the world as long as it is soft and supple. But it can also sometimes give us a hard time, especially when it tends to dry out. Some are affected only in winter, others, depending on their skin type, are extremely sensitive to certain external influences, and some even suffer from atopic dermatitis. If our skin barrier is disrupted, the proverb “not feeling good about yourself” takes on a whole new meaning. Dry skin on the face, in particular, can have a huge impact on an individual’s well-being.
Skin types, causes of dry skin and proper care tips
What type of skin needs special attention, what are the possible causes of dry skin and how can it be intensively cared for? One thing is certain: in this field, study takes precedence over trial; indeed, changing skincare products too often can further irritate the skin. To make it easier for you, we have gathered our know-how, the main care tips and indications for dry skin here.
Which product range suits your skin?
There is not necessarily redness, scales or even swelling. Indeed, the type of “dry and sensitive skin” often results in invisible symptoms, but all the more noticeable. It burns, it tingles, it itches… it’s annoying! Such and other “subclinical” signs may signal that the skin’s protective barrier is disrupted. In short, it lacks fat and hydration – which can be compensated with targeted care.

This type of skin often causes great suffering for those affected. Either because the skin reacts extremely sensitively to external influences such as hot air and the like, or because it suffers from atopic dermatitis, i.e. a chronic inflammatory disease. Symptoms such as redness, peeling skin and excruciating itching can significantly disrupt the daily life of these people. Also in this case, it is possible to obtain relief through appropriate medical skin care.
Too frequent washing
Dry skin can be caused by washing too often, as water strips moisture from the skin. It is above all the fact of washing your hands often without moisturizing them afterwards that is often the cause of dry skin on your hands.
What generally helps with dry skin?
Regular care, adapted to the type of skin and containing moisturizing substances, can help fight against skin dryness. Products based on vegetable oils are particularly suitable for this purpose: their lipid substances resemble or resemble the structures of the skin barrier and therefore integrate quite naturally.
Vegetable oil for dry skin
Fatty vegetable oils have an excellent caring effect on the skin. In order to be used in creams and other body care products, they must also be particularly well tolerated. Almond oil, argan oil , evening primrose oil , but also sunflower oil, for example, are well suited for skin care. That’s why we use them in our special lotions and creams for dry skin.
Which oil is suitable for which skin type?
Fatty oils are distinguished by their content of unsaturated fatty acids: Oils with a high content of unsaturated fatty acids penetrate quickly and are therefore also called dry oils. They are particularly suitable for quick care between two uses.
If the oil contains less unsaturated fatty acids, it stays on the skin longer (useful for massages) and provides intensive care. This is why we use certain combinations of vegetable oils in a targeted manner in our care products for dry or very dry, even atopic skin.
