What do you do when you feel dry skin? Looking for care for dry skin? Have you ever thought about the fact that the skin may not be dry, but dehydrated? There is a big difference between the two, even though the sensations are similar. This is tightness, some itching, heightened sensitivity, peeling and dull complexion are observed. In this article, we'll look at how dry skin differs from dehydration and how to choose the right moisturizing care for your skin needs.
Skin type is given to a person at birth and does not change throughout life. If you were born with dry skin, chances are you will have this type of skin not only on your face, but also on other parts of your body. Skin of this type requires constant care, and no matter how much moisturizing creams and lotions are applied, they are absorbed quite quickly. If you have a dry skin type, it means that it does not produce enough sebum (sebum), and as a result, the hydrolipid layer of the skin is thin or completely absent.
If we talk about the condition of the skin, then it depends on external factors and can change, that is, the phenomenon is temporary. So, for example, unhealthy diet, harmful effects of the environment, weather changes - all this can lead to dehydration of the skin, from which no skin type is immune. Dehydrated skin does not have enough water, therefore, trying to make up for its lack, a local over-active production of sebum begins. This, in turn, can provoke not only pimples, inflammation, irritation, but also the appearance of areas with dry skin.
Owners of dehydrated skin often refer to their skin as oily or combination type. To correctly determine whether the skin is really dry or just dehydrated, rely on the following signs when diagnosing.

Depending on the needs and condition of the skin, products with different active ingredients are recommended for skin care.
Dry skin needs lipids. The lipid barrier acts as a solid wall, increasing the skin's ability to retain moisture and resist external irritants. Lipid-rich ingredients - ceramides, squalane, oils (especially shea) and phyto ingredients - help rebuild the skin's barrier to protect against dryness.
Dehydration causes increased sebum production - thus the skin tries to nourish itself with moisture. Such a reaction of our skin leads to disastrous results: an enduring feeling of tightness, together with excessive oiliness and subcutaneous inflammation. Hyaluronic acid, amino acids and algae extracts are help ingredients to moisturize and balance dehydrated skin.
Ceramides and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid are the main components of the Hyaluronic Ultra Moisture series, therefore it can undoubtedly be called a salvation for dehydrated skin, since Hyaluronic Ultra Moisture products nourish the skin with life-giving moisture and prevent its further loss. It should be noted that hyaluronic acid, as an essential component for maintaining healthy and youthful skin, is included in all LIMONI skin care products, but in the Hyaluronic Ultra Moisture series its concentration reaches its maximum values.
A set of products from the Hyaluronic series will be a profitable purchase.
