Your skin becomes dehydrated when exposed to environmental aggressors such as the sun, weather and pollutants. The long-term use of harsh cleansers and natural ageing can also lead to dry and dehydrated skin. To avoid the effects of ageing such as wrinkles we need to apply moisturisers daily.
We sell a wide range of mostly humectants, which are hydrophilic (water-loving), water-binding agents. Their molecular structure enables them to keep the skin soft and pliant by retaining water and binding it in the skin.
We also stock Saccharide Isomerate Plus
, which is a natural deeply intensive moisturiser that provides both instant and long term results for the user. See its product listing below for more information.
Another type of moisturiser, known as an occlusive, is a fat, wax or vegetable oil with a large molecular structure that forms a thin layer on top of the skin, preventing moisture loss. Jojoba oil
is an excellent occlusive because of its high wax content.
Regular moisturising has several key benefits for your skin, including the prevention of dryness and irritability, fighting against ageing, soothing sensitive skin and protection from the sun’s UV light.
You should use a moisturiser twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed, but only after cleaning your face with warm water and skin-friendly soap. Give the moisturiser 30 minutes to soak into the skin before you head out the house or lie down in bed.
Creating your own moisturiser can be fun, highly rewarding for your skin and it will save you some money in the process. DIY moisturisers can be made using specific ingredients that are useful for your unique skin type or condition.
