Dry Climate Lotion
The Best Solution For Dry Skin is a Rich Night Cream
Here in the dry climate of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, keeping a suitable level of facial skin moisture can be difficult for my female patients. Studies have shown repeatedly and consistently that inadequate levels of moisture on the outer skin layers, the epidermis and the stratum corneum, contribute significantly to an accelerated aging of the skin, resulting in excessive wrinkles, dryness, and a tendency toward fine lines.
As facial skin becomes drier, there is a breakdown of proper skin mechanisms, and the skin cells become stiff and inflexible. The loss of barrier lipids further increases exposure of the skin cells, especially in dry climates. Because the skin is more vulnerable in these conditions, its ability to withstand environmental dryness becomes even more impaired, resulting in a continuing degeneration of the skin’s vitality. Healthy cellular skin protection occurs when your skin is able to lock in moisture consistently over time. A well-balanced moisturizer can promote healing and repair the damage in dry skin.
One of the best solutions for dry skin is a rich night cream, one in which its moisturizing effectiveness persists through the night. Forever Living Products’s Recovery night creme is an excellent example of such a night cream, with special skin humectants that lock in moisture and keep the skin in a proper oil/water balance. Also, collagen and hydrolyzed elastin in the product help to reduce fine lines. These ingredients, along with aloe vera, combine to produce a facial lotion that is capable of delivering intensive moisturizing and protection to the face all night long.
