Dry skin

Dry skin is also known as a dry, low-fat condition or sebostasis. It is usually classified as problem skin, sensitive skin or delicate skin. Your skin produces too little sebum. A greatly reduced production of sebum makes the protective hydrolipid film of your skin unstable, as the water-binding properties of sebum are missing. Dry skin is often fine-pored, thin, flaky and sometimes rough. Dry skin needs rich care to compensate for the lack of sebum.
