Dry Skin


How can dry skin be improved?

Step 1: Restore the moisture barrier by repairing skin cell turnover.

Dry skin often suffers from increased cell turnover time, meaning it takes longer than 28 days for skin cells to move from the deeper layers to being part of the dead stratum corneum at the surface. The result is skin that looks rough, dry and unhealthy. Exfoliation removes the dead skin layer to reveal newer more vibrant skin.

Step 2: Enhance moisture levels

Moisturizing dry skin is not just about applying creams when you feel dry, but about using the correct ingredients to attract moisture into the epidermis and keep it there.

Humectants attract water from the deep layers of the epidermis up to the stratum corneum; examples are hyaluronic acid, honey and glycerin. Emollients work by filling spaces between skin flakes with oil droplets; Examples are vitamin E and jojoba oil. Occlusivesblock TEWL in the stratum corneum by forming a barrier on the skin; examples are silicones and lanolin.

The goal is to use a combination of these ingredients to increase water content in skin, decrease TEWL (water loss) and restore the lipid barrier.
