Say goodbye to dry skin with Dr. Jart+Innovative skincare from Korea
Winter is bad news for the skin. If the chilly temperatures themselves weren’t detrimental enough outside, assaulting the skin barrier and zapping skin of moisture, head inside and you will find the central heating is just as drying.
Your skin can’t win, ending up dry, tight, and flaky. But to replenish what the winter takes out; it isn’t a case of simply plying skin with moisture (although that certainly helps). You need to reinforce the all-important skin barrier too.
Although a very fragile structure, the skin barrier is probably one of our most important organs. Your skin is made up of layers, each of which performs important functions in protecting your body.
The outermost layer, called the stratum corneum, consists of tough skin cells called corneocytes that are bound together by mortar-like lipids. This is your skin barrier.
Inside the skin cells, you will find keratin and natural moisturisers. The lipid layer contains:
Without the skin barrier, various harmful environmental toxins and pathogens could penetrate your skin and cause adverse effects inside your body.
Additionally, without your skin barrier, the water inside your body would escape and evaporate, leaving you completely dehydrated.
Your skin barrier is essential for your overall health and needs to be protected to help your body function properly. And that’s where CeramidinTM Ectoin®-Infused Cream comes in offering the ultimate solution for dry, dry skin.
In the natural world, Ectoin is a compound that helps to guard plants and microorganisms found in extreme habitats and hostile environments, such as salt lakes, the deep sea, and arctic ice. The microbiological benefits are impressive, and for the skin, just as remarkable, making a reputation in the beauty industry as a potent protector.
Ectoin® binds to water in the skin to form an invisible, weightless shield – almost like a second skin, protecting the skin barrier, deeply moisturising relieving dry, tight, flaky skin, and preventing precious moisture from leaking out.
Happy skin starts with a strong skin barrier, soWomen Talking was keen to try the following products in the Ceramidin™range as the colder months seem far from ending.
