Dry skin is one of the most common complaints seen in professional skin care facilities. Often this dryness is also accompanied by the concern of skin sensitivity. More recently, studies have suggested that failure of the epidermal barrier is the primary trigger for a cascade of events that ultimately lead to skin dryness and sensitivity. A condition referred to as Atopic Dermatitis. According to research, 29-58% of people have dry skin. In the vast majority of cases, it is caused by a dysfunctional lipid by-layer. While severity varies from person-to-person, it can be aggravated by allergens, clothing, cosmetics, food/drink, jewellery, soap/detergents, stress, sweat and temperature changes.
