Treatment for Dry Skin
Before giving you some recommendations for your dry skin, I suggest you learn a little about your skin first.
Some Basic facts
Our skin is a living organ!!!
In one square inch of skin there are: 9 500 000 cells, 20 000 sensory cells, 1300 nerve endings, 650 sweat glands, 100 sebaceous glands, and 65 hairs.
Skin renews at a rate of 1 million cells per minute or five billion cells per day.
The skin has 7 prime functions
Protection: The skin acts as a barrier for the inner body and protects us from bacteria
Regulation: The skin controls our surface body temparature and maintains our internal body heat. It achieves this through perspiration.
Sensation: The skin contains so many nerve endings which allows our brain to detect stimuli like pain, heat, pressure and touch.
Absorption: While the skin has the ability to absorb oil based products, deeper penetration is achieved by natural essential oils
Excretion: The skin removes waste and toxins through perspiration and sweat.
Secretion: Sebum plays a major part in maintaining the surface of the skin in tact.
Respiration: The skin breathes by giving off carbon dioxide and taking in oxygen.
Okay now back to your dry skin condition
Dehydration of the skin surface is one of the most common skin problems. The major causes of dry skin are evaporation of moisture and the removal of natural oils from your skin. The use of harsh soaps and alkali based products are major contributors to dry skin conditions. Winter, funny enough is a season to watch out for, loss of moisture from your skin through use of air-conditioners in homes and offices.
The Jericho Dead Sea and Fresh Look products I have found to be the best suited for dry skin are the
Dead Sea Mud, Dead Sea purifying mud mask, Fresh Look Beauty Mask, Dead Sea body butters,Fresh Look Intensive Moisturiser, Dead Sea moisturiser,Fresh Look Rich night cream, Dead Sea nourishing cream, Dead Sea Cleansers and toners and a new product called Fresh Look Phytol.
One thing to remember for you and your skin….. The skin is the largest organ for elimination and must be kept free from waste. The use of a good quality cleanser is an absolute must.!!
