THE THREE STEPS TO SPRING CLEANING YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE WITH ALEXANDRA
MOISTURISE & PROTECT
With freshly clean skin that has been ‘fed’ with all the wonderful nutrients from the oil and serum in PART 2 , it’s important to keep all that goodness locked-in, and to ensure the skin is protected against loosing moisture.
Why is keeping skin moisturised at all times so important?
When in a dry environment, the air around the skin is lacking in moisture, so it will suck the moisture out of the skin. To protect the body from losing water in this way, the outermost skin cells bind together to form a dry film that prevents more water from evaporating from the body. The more this happens in the natural expression’s folds, the more some skin cells stay permanently bonded together, forming a deeply set wrinkle. Simply, the more dehydrated the skin is, the quicker it will age.
Best moisturiser: Formula 1
Acne loves dry skin
Having an outer film of dry skin cells seals bacteria in the skin pores. Bad bacteria feeds on oxidised sebum and dead skin cells, whilst the good bacteria that fight the bad guys feeds on oxygen. Therefore, allowing skin to breathe is the best possible thing we can do for it.
Best moisturiser: Rescue Cream (not available online, please contact the clinic)
Dry skin causes sensitive skin
Dry skin is irritated more easily and is already on the defense, because dry skin cells are easily torn, causing inflammation. When the skin is well moisturised it becomes more malleable, protected and resistant to irritants.
Best moisturiser: Moody Skin
Although men’s skin is slightly more resilient, the same advice applies in all of these instances.
