Dry Skin Solutions
Dry skin also known as xerosis or xeroderma is not a disease, but rather a symptom of underlying condition. If persistence it may cause feeling of skin tightening, flacking and scaling. When scratched wound may open up and lead to bleeding and ulcer formation. Skin dryness leads to fine lines and wrinkles
Frequently dry skin maybe caused by environmental factors, like cold and low humidity weather, indoor heating that decreases air moisture, hot shower that strips skin of natural oils, harsh soaps and detergents or aggressive scrubbing that remove skin’s moisture barrier.
All factors that damage skin protective hydro lipid barrier increase trans-epidermal water loss and exacerbates dry skin condition.
If skin is extremely scaly and red it could atopic dermatitis or psoriasis. It can also be a symptom of diseases such as diabetes or an underactive thyroid gland. Chronic or severe dry skin problems may require evaluation by a doctor who specializes in skin (dermatologist).
But first you can do a lot yourself to improve your skin, including using moisturizers and avoiding harsh, drying soaps.
Our Solution is Atopalm and Medik8
Atopalm patented MLE – Multi-Lamellar Emulsion found in Atopalm, Zeroid and Psoriapalm products. MLE recreates skin lamellar lipid structure with essential skin lipids like NeoPharm’s patented pseudo-ceramide, natural vegetable oils - source of cholesterol and free fatty acids, to mimic perfectly our own skin lipid structure. Zeroid also contains natural moisturising factors and ingredient defensamide that promotes generation of antimicrobial peptides inside the skin to protect it from harmful bacteria.
By recreating sustaining skin protective layer, we may not only decrease trans-epidermal water loss by locking the moisture inside, but also protect the skin against hazardous environment.
Zeroid is free from preservatives, perfumery, alcohol or pigment. All ingredients are hypo allergic so it can be safely applied to very sensitive and troubled skin. Zeroid keeps skin pH mildly acid to help maintain healthy skin.
To effectively target skin dehydration, it is necessary to re-establish the skin self-hydration mechanism through strengthening the water-retention barrier of the skin and supplementation with NMF components, such as hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic Acid, like other Natural Moisturise Factor’s components, works by attracting water from the air and combining it with the skin’s own water content ensuring that the superficial layers of the skin are kept hydrated despite being exposed to harsh environmental elements.
