Dull and tired skin Dull and tired skin


Over the years, the skin loses energy and requires more care. If you suffer from lipid dry skin, you must redress these natural deficits in order to prevent premature skin aging.

Skin that lacks oil can manifest itself in a variety of ways. In most cases, the skin appears tired and dull. If you do not provide your skin with enough lipid-rich care, it can lead to an unpleasant feeling of tightness due to a higher than normal water loss. And this is because oil is occlusive: it forms a film over the skin to prevent it from drying out. In the worst case, the skin’s surface becomes rough, scaly and cracked. People with lipid-dry skin are often very sensitive to cold weather, especially around the cheeks. If your skin lacks oil, you will know the feeling: No matter how much lotion you pile on, your skin stays dry and rough in the long run.

The natural aging process of our skin already starts in our 20s and 30s and is the main reason behind lipid dry skin. Normally our skin regenerates every 4 weeks. Skin cells are reproducing constantly and moving up through several layers of skin, until they reach the top layer, where dead skin cells are shed. As we get older, our cell metabolism slows down, cell energy decreases and skin cells take longer to regenerate. Cell production declines and the epidermis becomes thinner, which makes it harder for the skin to produce oil and thus to retain moisture due the loss of the protective film of lipids and fatty acids. Ultimately, the skin becomes dry and loses its natural suppleness and elasticity, which leads to the appearance of wrinkles at an early age.

However, it’s not just age, but also environmental factors such as extended exposure to the sun, smoking and alcohol, that have a negative impact on the skin’s energy levels and accelerate skin aging. Experts call this process “oxidative stress”, a term referring to how free radicals damage our organism. Free radicals are high-energy particles that cause damage to proteins and lipids, especially in our skin. In order to “disarm” those particles, you need antioxidants such as the coenzyme Q10. They can neutralize free radicals and render them harmless. Additionally, they promote cell repair and skin regeneration.
