To properly treat dry skin requires deep moisturizing. In other words...... must be able to moisturize both the epidermis and dermis of the skin. The epidermis is the top layer of skin. It is made up of dead cell. And it's main purpose is to protect underlying skin cells and tissue. The dermis is the lower layer of skin. And it comprises of: 1. living skin cells 2. blood vessels 3. nerves 4. and hair follicle This layer keeps the skin alive and functioning. Now to properly treat dry skin you will need: A. a normal Moisturizer B. and also a Deep Penetrating Serum An normal-everyday moisturizer will treat the epidermis. And most of us familiar with these products. We use them everyday. However...... ...... if facial moistuirizers are used alone.....then your face will still feel dry and tight. This is due to a lack of moisture at the dermis level. But this is where a deep penetrating serum comes in. Serums are designed to penetrate and moisturize deep into the skin. They are ideal for treating the dermis. So add a moisturing serum to your skin care routine if your skin is dry. It'll help improve your condition.
