Come curare la pelle secca e sensibile

How to treat dry and sensitive skin?

To counteract the annoying sensation of tightness, itching, and imperfections caused by the epidermis (which appears less toned and youthful and especially flaky), there is a remedy: soothing cream. It is a small daily treat that greatly helps the skin to appear healthier, toned, and younger and allows us to no longer feel any discomfort. We can also help the cream to perform its task by trying to carry out a few simple daily actions that help improve our psychophysical well-being.


What to do for dry skin: remedies

To counteract dry skin, it's important to first know that skin can be naturally prone to dryness or can become dry due to weather conditions and external factors. The best way to strengthen the skin is to keep it hydrated with suitable products. In addition to this, during winter it's recommended to cover exposed areas with scarves, hats, gloves, and appropriate outerwear, while in summer it's advised to use adequate sun protection. There are sunscreens suitable for every skin type and after-sun creams that help the skin after exposure to ultraviolet rays.

Other useful tips on what to do for dry skin?

One can try to avoid overly dry environments by using a dehumidifier. If this is not possible, it's good not to sleep with the air conditioning and heating on and occasionally open the windows in the rooms where you spend the most time. It's important to eliminate dust, mites, and possible allergens by regularly dusting and cleaning furniture and furnishings, as well as washing fabrics at home and in the office. Those with very dry skin should also avoid long hot baths, preferring short showers with not too hot water. Subsequently, while the skin is still damp, it's good to moisturize it with suitable products. In this case, moisturizing or soothing creams can be used to obtain the maximum benefits from such products. To remove dry and dead skin and allow renewal, it's good to rely on gentle exfoliants.

Lastly, nutrition. A healthy diet rich in vitamins, with the intake of plenty of water and some supplements, is fundamental.


How to tell if you have dry skin

It's simple to understand if you have dry skin: in these cases, it will appear thin, fragile, flaky, and lacking elasticity. Just touching it will make it feel rough and uneven. Generally, dry skin has a dull complexion and gives an unhealthy appearance. You can tell if your skin is too dry if you experience discomfort such as:

  • itching;
  • tightness;
  • tingling;
  • feeling of warmth in the skin.

To assess the condition, in more severe cases, it is necessary to consult your trusted dermatologist. They will highlight visible signs and therefore search the body for the presence of dry patches, scales, or redness. The dermatologist uses a corneometer for their assessment, which is a tool capable of estimating the water content of the epidermis. This instrument is based on the analysis of the electrical properties of the skin. Additionally, in some cases, an evaporimeter can also be used to evaluate the degree of skin hydration by measuring water loss.
