Dry Skin Care
Dry skin has a dry parched appearance and has a tendency to flake easily. It is prone to wrinkles and lines. Dry skin is delicate and dry with a tendency to scaling on the cheeks. Dry skin needs plenty of thorough but gentle cleansing, regular stimulation with massage and generous quantities of moisture. It also needs extra careful protection.
Dry skin lacks suppleness and therefore it feels taut after washing. The pores are not visible as there is an insufficient amount of secretion from the sebaceous glands. Constant protection is very important. It needs a moisturiser during the day and a good cream at night.
