When should you think about dry skin care?
- For the treatment of excessive skin dryness, deep hydration from the inside, smoothing and giving the skin a silky, tense appearance.
- It is worth thinking about the therapeutic line of dry skin care in order to reduce small scars and nourish places with a thin skin coat, among others sensitive skin around the eyes, lips, neck, neckline, hands.
- Treatments can also be seen as seasonal revitalization: in the spring as a preventive skin protection against drying or as a moisturizing treatment after the summer.
What could be the reason?
The reduction of skin hydration level in the first place corresponds to the decreasing level of hyaluronic acid in the skin with age. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide in our skin, which main task is to bind and store water in tissues. Over the years, the level of hyaluronic acid decreases, making the skin less moisturized and elastic.
Drying of the skin is also influenced by atmospheric factors – above all exposure to the sun’s rays, temperature and wind. The process of premature aging of the skin as a result of environmental impact is photo-aging. Under its influence, overproduction of free radicals occurs, and the collagen contained in the skin is gradually destroyed.
The goals of intensive moisturizing
The aim of moisturizing therapy is the introduction of water-binding preparations under the skin, resulting in a very deep moisturizing process – incomparable to surface treatments. The humidification process is often accompanied by a side goal of skin nutrition from the inside by the use of cocktails containing, in addition to hyaluronic acid, also amino acids, vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants, growth factors.
