The Quality of Dry Skin

Dry skin is characterized by a lack of lipids (Oil), but that’s not all. To properly determine your skin type and wring your neck with preconceived ideas, discover the advice of Doctissimo.


It is important to distinguish between pathological dry skin and physiological dry skin. The latter is inherent and genetic, and can also be related to climate or a certain diet. Dry skin can affect all skin tones and you can recognize it by all continents. In winter, between 30 and 40% of women suffer from dry skin.
 Dry skin is mainly a painful skin type that results in an uncomfortable feeling. Its appearance is usually dull, sad and it’s rough to the touch. Dryness usually brings about whitish lines on the surface and even areas of redness, which reflect the inflammation and irritation characteristics of this type of skin. And contrary to what one might think, young women under the age of 20 (who usually are the victims of acne and excess of sebum) can be confronted with this type of skin. 

Dry Skin, Mature Skin, and Received Ideas

As it easy to define dry skin due to its many symptoms, also the case for mature skin which can be defined by two broad categories of criteria:
  1. The appearance of wrinkles that begins at the level of the eye contour and then extends to the musculature and bone architecture.
  2. The loss of firmness, which leads to the heterogeneity of the skin tone or the appearance of pigment spots.

The Mature Skin

And for Véronique Delvigne, scientific director Lancôme Internationale, it is difficult to decide at what age we can start talking about mature skin, because "we can quite have a very good skin quality at the age of 50". According to her, mature skin is not necessarily drier than the young skin; Rather than giving an age to mature skin, it would be more appropriate to differentiate between the types of skin aging.

There are two categories:

  1.  Intrinsic aging refers to natural aging affecting all organs. mature skin characterized by cellular degeneration and mutations that can lead to cell death.
  2. Extrinsic aging includes, as its name indicates, all the external factors involved in skin aging such as overexposure to UV, tobacco and/or alcohol abuse, nutritional and/or hormonal deficiencies.

Young Skin and Mature Skin

For the scientist, there is no difference between young skin and mature skin in the clinical expression of dry skin. It’s only the symptoms of skin aging such as lack of firmness, heterogeneity of complexion and wrinkles will be added to the mature dry skin. 

How to Choose Your Dry Skin Care Product?

You well known that dry fine skin shows the first signs of aging more quickly than oily and thick skin. To delay the effects of aging with the passage of time as much as possible, you should moisturize the skin daily and associate its moisturizing care serums with active anti-stains, targeted anti-aging: DHEA, AHA, vitamin A derivatives (retinol), hyaluronic acid, Resveratrol, Pro-Xylene ... It is also possible to opt for two-in-one treatments that will act on dryness as well as on skin aging, just like face care 

There is No Age to Delay The Signs of ... Age!

There is no age to delay the signs of ... age! If until today, we knew the role of lipids in the prevention of cutaneous dryness, research Lancôme highlighted the role of proteins by demonstrating that 10 genes (2 lipids-ceramide-deficient and 8 proteins) were also involved in skin dryness.
By restructuring the protein cell and acting on the lipid matrix that is lacking in dry skin, this new transgenerational care normalizes young dry skin and it even has more surprising effects on the mature skin by putting their genes back to work. There is no age to delay the signs of ... age!
