Maintaining dry skin is always a tough task. No matter what the problem is, it is always safe to keep it moisturized. Moisturizing helps in making sure you look radiant and glowing with confidence by keeping your skin nourished and healthy.
Everyone wishes to have a beautiful and a smooth skin and the best way to have it are using the best skin care services;
There are three different layers of the skin:
• The outer layer (epidermis)
• Middle layer (dermis)
• Lower layer (hypodermis or fatty layer).
Moisture is delivered to the skin via blood vessels. But they only supply moisture to the middle layer of the skin. After that, water travels upward and outward through the epidermis, before it gets evaporated into the atmosphere.
Thus, the evaporation process causes skin to crack and flake. The dryer the air, the more moisture it will pull from your skin.
Moisturizers work in one of two main ways. In the first possibility, they either trap moisture in your skin to keep it from escaping, or they can also restore moisture in the outer layer of skin.
With the glut of lotions and creams available in the market, you can easily spoil your skin by getting lost in the sea of different brand names. However, there are three types of moisturizers at core that treat your skin royally with moisture.
These moisturizers are called the “old school” or “first generation” moisturizers. For instance the petroleum jelly or its brand name, Vaseline. These are the waxes, oils, and silicones which work in a very simple way by creating a barrier over the skin and trapping the water in the skin’s layers and hence stopping the evaporation process to take place.
Molecules in these moisturizers contain long chains of carbon atoms that repel water and the occlusive are super effective at minimizing dryness. They cut TEWL by a whopping 98% and can be messy, sticky, and not very cosmetically appealing. Regular Body Wrap treatment and Body scrubbing can maintain your body moisture as well as healthy skin.
