Dry, damaged skin can seem tight, irritated, dull, flaky or even chafed. Internal causes of dry skin may include a reduced ability to produce sufficient natural oils or a reduced ability to retain natural skin moisture. External factors may include overexposure to sun, harsh environmental conditions or overuse of dehydrating topical skin treatments. Unfortunately, these external factors can significantly damage the skin, leading to further dryness and signs of visible aging. What’s more, fine lines and wrinkles tend to look more prominent when skin is dry, dehydrated and damaged.
One way to remedy signs of skin dryness is to hydrate it with Hyaluronic Acid. Our bodies naturally produce Hyaluronic Acid, which helps keep collagen healthy and surface skin soft and smooth. Also known as “the moisture magnet”, topically applied Hyaluronic Acid is used in high quality moisturizing products due to its amazing ability to attract and bind water molecules to skin. This action helps replenish needed moisture while visibly plumping skin to reduce the look of fine lines and surface wrinkles.
Topically applied antioxidants are also beneficial in helping to defend the skin from damaging environmental elements. Astaxanthin and Pycnogenol® are two of the strongest antioxidants discovered, as both have been scientifically proven to help deflect environmental damage, soothe irritation, and visibly reduce signs of premature aging.
