Innovative Dry Skin Moisturizer
Dry skin is not only caused by hereditary factors but also by a reduction of age-related intracellular lipid and natural moisturizing factors. In addition, the disturbance of the skin barrier by extrinsic stimuli such as a sudden change in the weather and contact with chemical agents also induces dry skin. Individuals experience itching because the sensory nerves in the lower layer of the skin are directly subjected to external stimuli by the collapsing skin barrier function. If one is prone to develop atopic dermatitis, excessive dryness can lead to activation of the disease, causing redness, cracking, and inflammation. Dry skin may crack, allowing bacteria to enter, causing infections.
