Whether in the face or other parts of the body: Dry skin is usually very sensitive and easily irritated. It therefore needs a lot of moisture and intensive care. A⁴ COSMETICS active ingredient cosmetics not only provide dry skin with a lot of moisture, but also with important vitamins and nutrients to improve the skin's moisture retention and strengthen its natural protective functions. And not only that: If you want to strengthen your skin from the inside, you can make an important contribution with a healthy diet. So what exactly does the right care for dry skin look like?


Anyone who has dry skin knows the problem too well. Particularly in the face, it is characteristic for

  • Feelings of tension,
  • Itching,
  • Redness,
  • skin areas that feel rough.

  • In addition, in many cases an increased sensitivity to cosmetics and substances that come into contact with the skin develops. Dry skin reacts quickly to irritation - it is not uncommon for skin problems to intensify as a result.
But why does such dryness develop? On the one hand a genetic predisposition can favour dry skin in the face, on the hands and on the rest of the body, on the other hand external influences are often responsible for it: A sufficient fluid intake, care adapted to the skin type and protection against harmful or irritating substances have a decisive effect on the condition of the skin. Nutrition also plays a decisive role in dry skin.


Through food we consume important nutrients and vitamins every day, which are also important for our skin.



A⁴ COSMETICS primarily uses eco-certified argan oil, avocado oil, aloe vera and shea butter to provide dry skin with sufficient moisture and valuable care substances. In addition to external support, proper nutrition from the inside can also help soothe dry skin and stimulate its natural protective functions:

  • Fruits and vegetables such as avocado, kale or carrots maintain moisture and prevent dry skin. They contain important vitamins and antioxidants that stimulate the skin's cell metabolism and thus promote the formation of skin lipids. Especially tomatoes are a good care for dry and sensitive skin, because they protect the skin from UV damages and promote the formation of skin lipids. A tip: Cooked tomato dishes such as sauces and soups contain more valuable lycopene (antioxidant) than raw tomatoes.
  • Berries are also an important source of vitamins. B vitamins in particular have positive effects on dry skin - acai berries, strawberries, black currants and above all goji berries have a high proportion.
  • Oils such as argan oil, olive oil, rapeseed oil, linseed oil or wheat germ oil stimulate the cell metabolism of the skin, as cold pressed oils in particular are rich in vitamin E and A. They also supply the skin with essential omega-3 and omega-6 acids, which support the skin's natural protective functions.
  • Fish, such as wild salmon, mackerel or sardines, also provide omega-3 fatty acids and protect the skin from irritation. It should therefore be an important part of the diet for dry skin.
  • Meat, especially lean poultry meat as well as veal and beef, and eggs provide high-quality protein. They also provide important B vitamins, especially B5 and B12.
  • Dairy products, especially low-fat yoghurt, whey and low-fat quark, are also good sources of protein and provide important amino acids for the production of collagen. In addition to vitamins, dairy products also contain calcium - important for bones, hair and skin.
  • Grains such as oats, millet and barley contain valuable silicic acid, which stabilizes the connective tissue of the skin.
