HOW CAN YOU SOOTHE, REPLENISH AND PROTECT YOUR FRAGILE SKIN?
Dehydration can affect any skin type at any age. It is due to the evaporation of skin moisture and the inability of the skin to retain moisture. A number of factors such as age, wind, sun exposure, medications, and certain aesthetic procedures can all attribute to skin dehydration.
Proper moisturization is a key component of youthful and healthy skin, providing:
- An undamaged hydrolipidic barrier that protects the skin from external aggression;
- A normal production of moisturizing factors (NMFs) that capture and retain water in cells present in the corneal layer;
- An undamaged skin barrier that strengthens the protection against loss of water in skin;
- A dermal matrix rich in hyaluronic acid to retain water. Hyaluronic acid is the skin’s main water reservoir.
