Desquamation of the skin is a troublesome process that causes not only an aesthetic discomfort, but also an imbalance at the cellular level, making the skin more sensitive and delicate. Although it is a situation that is resolved in most cases in a positive way, it is good to follow the process of desquamation and treat it in the best way, so as to speed up healing. Aloe vera is one of the most effective natural remedies to be implemented against this disease.
What is desquamation?
It is good to understand that when we talk about scales we are dealing with visible scales of skin that come off easily from the skin surface.
There are different types of scales classified according to conformation, size and color:
- Pityriasic, small and light
- Lamellar or foliacee
- Psoriatic, with silvery scaly heaps
- Ittiotic, scaled fish, polygonal and adherent to the center
- Seborroic, yellowish and oily due to sebum
The process by which the skin is detached from the stratum corneum from the skin is called desquamation. Usually it is accompanied by a series of symptoms such as itching, redness and soreness of the affected area which make desquamation particularly unbearable.
