DRY, DEHYDRATED SKIN, HOW TO PREVENT FROM WINTER SKIN CONCERNS ?
The main purpose of a skin serum/ cream is to keep the skin moisturized and this function is made effective by ingredients that are HUMECTANTS. They attract moisture from the deeper layers of our skin to hydrate the surface, at the same time also deliver moisture from the ambience- and nutrients to the deeper layers. This helps skin to keep itself hydrated on a regular basis.
Natural humectants can be found in ingredients like Aloe, Algae Extract, Honey, Hyaluronic Acid or Glycerin.
The effective way to moisturize your skin is to use a product that contains EMOLLIANTS which will fill the spaces between rough or peeling skin cells, smoothing the surface of your skin. Emolliants also envelope water content and prevent it to evaporate in the air. You will be able to find natural emollients like Shea butter, Rosehip, Squalane or Olive oil in our range.
When our skin is dry, there is an indication that the skin barrier is damaged, we will need oil to strengthen it.
To restore your lipid barrier, one of the most effective and straightforward way is to include Omega 3 and 6 FATTY ACIDS to your skincare routine. These fatty acids will feed the lipids in your skin, to keep skin cells moist and strong by reducing the amount of water loss from the epidermis. A strong lipid barrier is essential for healthy, hydrated skin. You can find fatty acids in a lot of natural oils. The richer ones in fatty acids we use in our products are Sunflower Oil, Macadamia Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Rosehip oil.
