It's time to treat skincare
More like healthcare
Normal skin demonstrates the ideal balance of moisture and cell turnover in the topmost protective layers of skin. In normal, healthy skin, pores are barely visible; skin is moist, clear and glowing.
Our skin acts as a two-way barrier protecting the internal body from damaging external elements and preventing the loss of moisture, which is needed to keep skin healthy looking. Crucial to this barrier function is a hydrolipid film composed of moisture and natural oils (including fatty acids and lipids) that protects and covers the skin’s surface.
This hydrolipid film is fragile and must maintain a pH between 4.5 and 5.5 to function optimally. So even normal, healthy looking skin needs the proper daily skincare to maintain the right balance of moisture and lipids. Environmental factors can cause imbalances in the skin’s pH, increasing the risk of breakouts and dry skin. Prolonged exposure to UV rays is one of the most damaging environmental factors, and can lead to wrinkles.
CARE & TREATMENT
To maintaining healthy looking skin it is important to use the right cleanser that removes dirt without stripping protective oils and always use warm water, not hot. Hot water and abrasive soaps can remove protective oils and can damage your skin over time.
Moisturizing lotions, creams and gels help bind water to the skin and prevent moisture loss. For normal skin, it’s important to find gentle products that support the skin’s protective properties The skin can become irritated and imbalanced with products that contain harsh ingredients or fragrances. Sunscreen is also recommended to protect skin from damage caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
Good, daily skin care practices help keep skin soft, smooth and healthy-looking. Consult your doctor or dermatologist for guidance on any specific skincare concerns you may have.
