MYTHS ABOUT SKIN CARE AND SKIN CARE PRODUCTS
It is important to remember that the skin is a protective organ. Water is the most essential requirement for all living cells, including your skin cells. Without water, cells can simply not live.
An excessively oily skin could be a sign of severe dehydration of the skin. All skins need protection to prevent moisture loss. The environment we are exposed to causes water to evaporate from the skin. Air conditioners, pollution and the sun encourage moisture loss. Also, oily skin clients tend to strip their skins with harsh soapy cleansers too. The skin in turn wants to protect this loss of water by secreting more oil. This is often the cause of that excess shine you wish you could control.
Moisturizers also contain important protective ingredients called antioxidants. These antioxidants help to fight the negative impact that the environment and lifestyle choices have on our skins.
If the skin’s protective qualities are damaged, how should it protect itself from water loss? How is it supposed to protect us from microbes, infections and irritations? If excessive oil secretion persists, it can break the skin’s immune system and clog your pores – the perfect environment for blackheads, breakouts and blemishes to develop.
All you need to do is to find the right moisturizer for your skin type and the correct protection for your environment.
