Dry skin, especially on the face, can be very unpleasant, it is often rough and sensitive. Therefore, it needs a lot of care with the right active ingredients to protect it from drying out and the penetration of germs. Dry skin is often genetically determined. Sebaceous and sweat glands do not release enough oil and moisture to the epidermis to keep it supple. Microscopic cracks and gaps develop between the cells. The skin constantly loses moisture through them.
