Practicing Anti-Aging is the specialty at BioKorium® Skin Care. In this episode, the Skin Water® absorption challenge gave her tighter, smoother skin and thinner facial features. We call it “De-Puffing” the Face. You can visually see in both instances the disappearance of the product, hence, Skin Water’s® ability to Hydro-Force® moisture into the skin.
Proper hydration is crucial in order to maintain a proper functioning body, as well as healthy skin. What is enough water? Approximately eight glasses of water per day which is 64 fluid ounces. What would happen to your body if you were allowed to only drink 1 fluid ounce of water daily? You would absolutely know it would directly impact all bodily functions in a bad way. Hence, we can look at Skin Care in the same manner. The Skin Care Industry has long sold the concept that there 1.7 ounce jar of cream will do it all, from skin hydration to skin tightening. Skin contain 64% water. If that 1.7 ounce cream was to last you the month, do you actually think it will do things it was marketed to do? At BioKorium we believe that you would need if not 8 ounces but 16 ounces in order to maintain proper skin hydration for a month. Our Skin Water Hydration Cream was designed with this concept in mind. Therefore proper hydration internally as well as externally contributes to reaching Anti-Aging goals. If one had to only utilize 1.7 ounces of cream per month, your skin would be dying of thirst! You’re body does not need a sip of water to maintain proper skin care, you need a gulp!
Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) refers to the evaporation of water through the epidermis, or outer layer, of your skin. As we get older the loss of water through evaporation via your skin becomes higher. What does it means when your skin is unable to properly maintain its suppleness through normal hydration? This means that excess Transepidermal Water Loss is occurring due to damage or age impairment to the skin’s protective barrier faster than the body can replace it, therefore allowing excess moisture content to evaporate from the skin into the atmosphere, resulting in dry, irritated, dehydrated and/or itchy skin. A high TEWL may also make your skin more prone to infection through easier entry of bacteria through dry cracked skin. Dry skin also tends to appear more aged, as fine lines and wrinkles are accentuated.
The future of Skin Care is in forcing water into the skin. Proper use of topical moisturizing and hydration products such as BioKorium® Skin Water® Hydration Cream with Hydro-Force® Technology can work to repair age related skin damage and a weakened skin barrier in order to reverse Transepidermal Water Loss and combat the signs of aging.
