Prefer oils and fats of vegetable origin rich in beneficial substances such as argan oil, the vianccioli oilor shea butter or bio-mimetic lipids such as ceramides, natural substances lipidic already present in the body which increase resistance to chemical-physical insults
Particular attention should be paid to facial cleansing which must be carried out with oily cleansers with cleansing creams, mthe use of aggressive or foam-based surfactants is strongly discouraged.
