Why moisturiser is so important: The skins outer barrier is made up of skin cells and lipids. Lipids bind the cells together. The barriers function is to protect the skin from outside irritants and preserve water in the skin.  Skin cells depend on water to maintain a healthy, soft and resilient skin. Moisturiser reinforces barrier protection, boosts hydration to soften and plump and repairs damage to the barrier.

Ingredients:

  • Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects the skin from environmental damage. It provides the skin with hydration, nourishment and repairs the protective barrier.
  • Vitamin A has the ability to influence and normalise how skin cells function. It helps to improve skin conditions, repair cells and promote skins natural moisturising ability resulting in a healthier, radiant and more balanced skin.
  • Ceramides replenish lipids, found naturally in the skin Ceramides replace what may be lost due to impaired barrier and age. They protect cells, reinforce skin barrier and improve skins overall appearance.
  • Hyaluronic acid has the ability to retain water, it holds up to 1000 times its own weight in water. It is naturally found in the body therefore easily accepted into the skin and has a low molecular weight which easily penetrates the skin. It provides intense hydration, plumps and smoothes the skin and reduces lines caused by dehydration

Why you need moisturiser:  Environmental assault, lifestyle habits and age related changes can result in a reduction in barrier lipids. This leads to a reduction in moisture as skin cannot bind and retain water. Daily use of a moisturiser will replenish barrier lipids and moisture while repairing and protecting the skin.

Who needs to moisturise: Whatever your skin type, moisturising will improve your skin health, feel and appearance.  Moisturiser is vital to treat a sensitized skin with impaired barrier, or a dry skin that lacks lipids to retain moisture. Oily skin types that produce excess oil can be lacking in moisture, a water based oil-free moisturiser will boost hydration and protection without adding oil.  

Why moisturiser is so good: A moisturiser treats the outer layer of the skin, it provides instant nourishment and a feeling of comfort on the skin.  By moisturising and keeping cells hydrated the skin will appear plumper, with less fine lines and feel more comfortable and soft. Moisturiser prevents damage to the protective barrier and repairs existing damage while providing added benefits from active ingredients it contains.
