- How do I recognise dehydrated skin?
Dehydrated skin is not a skin type but a temporary skin condition that can concern all skin types and all ages.
Its distinguishing signs are a lack of suppleness, feelings of tightness, fine lines and striations.
- What are the main causes of dehydration?
Dehydration is caused by excessive water evaporation, which may be linked to environmental factors (wind, humidity level, air conditioning, etc.), harsh beauty products, or endogenous factors (poor functioning of the epidermis, impairment of the hydrolipid film, etc.).
- What is the difference between dehydrated and dry skin?
Dry skin, like oily skin, is a skin type. Dry skin is skin that lacks lipids because its sebaceous secretions – essential for its comfort – are insufficient. It is also affected by excessive TEWL (transepidermal water loss): this is why skin dryness is undeniably accompanied by dehydration.
Skin is diagnosed as "dry" when it is lacking comfort and suppleness and feels tight.
Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, is a temporary state that all skin types (dry, normal, combination, oily) may experience. Dehydrated skin is skin lacking in water.
- How will a moisturizing cream work on the skin?
An effective moisturizing cream will supply skin with water but also provide it with elements capable of retaining water in the upper layers. It will then encourage water to be transported from the deep layers to the surface of the epidermis. Finally, it will limit the evaporation of the water contained in the epidermis by helping to restore the hydrolipid film.
- Why should I use a serum before my cream?
A serum is a concentrate of active ingredients that will take targeted action on specific skin concerns. The serum's light texture allows it to quickly penetrate deep down. The serum can also boost the moisturizing cream's activity for faster visible results.
- Can I apply my moisturizing cream under my eyes?
The skin of the eye contour area is very fine and fragile compared to the rest of the face. Its hydrolipid film is also finer. It is therefore much more sensitive to external aggressors. It is preferable not to apply creams containing fragrances, volatile silicones or sunscreens to this area. In addition, the eye contour area has specific needs that are not met by a moisturizing cream (dark circles, puffiness).
- I have an oily skin. Does it need to be moisturized?
Yes, every skin type needs hydration. You simply need to choose a cream suited to your skin type. Vinosource Moisturizing Mattifying Fluid or Vinopure Skin Perfecting Mattifying Fluid will allow you to keep your oily skin supple while preventing excess sebum.
- My skin is sensitive and red and I have rosacea. Which cream should I use?
Rosacea is due to abnormal dilation of the blood vessels. Products containing polyphenols will be better suited to strengthening the vessel walls and thus restricting their dilation. Moisturizing Sorbet can be used because it soothes diffuse redness (it is mentioned on the pack: reduces redness 77%) linked to skin irritation or abnormal sensitivity (external aggressors, allergens, stress, etc.). The more nourishing Intense Moisture Rescue Cream can also be used (on the pack, it is mentioned: Soothed skin 90%).
- I have sensitive skin. Can I apply a cream containing fragrance?
It is possible to use a cream containing fragrance if your skin is sensitive but not allergic. It is important to note that each person's skin has its own sensitivity and therefore reacts differently to external factors.
Moisturizing Sorbet and Intense Moisture Rescue Cream have been tested on sensitive skin.
