Dryness can be related to exposure to the external environment. It can also be due to ageing, dehydration or a lack of good fats in the diet.

How to Effectively Moisturize Your Skin and Eradicate Signs of Dryness.

  •  Use products with Natural Moisturizing Factors:

    tick-greenNatural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) refers to different substances that draw water into the skin from the environment.

    tick-greenNMF is naturally found in the skin – in fact it makes up 20% to 30% of the dry weight of the stratum corneum (outermost layer of the epidermis).

    tick-greenNMF is made up primarily of amino acids (40%). It also contains 12% of both sodium PCA and lactate.  Urea, ions, sugars and some minor components make up the remaining 34%

    tick-greenThe components of NMF therefore help maintain a healthy and moist outer skin layer. They also prevent or decrease cracking, scaling, flaking and tightness of the skin.

    tick-greenWhen the amino acids (proteins) interact with other skin components, NMF also improves the skins elasticity and skin barrier.

  • Ensure you are drinking adequate amounts of fluid each day:

  • Protect your skin from the harsh sun or wind and use a good moisturizer after exposure. Damage to the skin barrier will increase Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL):

  • Effectively treat all conditions such as eczema that damage the skin barrier:

  • Take Omega- 3 fatty acids orally. A liquid or tablet will not only decrease inflammation in the body but will help protect the epidermis. This outer layer of the skin contains cells that become thin and less sticky as we age, increasing the risk of damage to the skins barrier function:

  • Use products that contain both water and fatty acids. Some companies use only oils or butters in their products claiming that this provides better moisturization. Such products can create an occlusive barrier that can help prevent water loss. However, the body and the skin itself needs water to moisturize. So when the skin is dry, a product that provides water to the epidermis and helps lock that water content in, is the best type of moisturizer.
