There is one beauty theory out there that suggests moisturising can actually accelerate the ageing process, crazy right?
Well, it seems to apply a little more to healthy, young and already hydrated skin.
Here on our blog we have discussed the mistake of over washing and over exfoliating the face so it doesn’t seem to far fetched that over moisturising can be an issue, or does it?
Well, here’s what it’s all about.
When it comes to young and healthy skin, it has been said that applying moisturiser over the cells in the dermis that are already collecting water from food is apparently sending the skin cells in the epidermis a “slow down” message and therefore allowing them to get lazy and reliant on topical moisturises, which eventually causes the cells in the dermis to move from lazy to dormant, and therefore impacting on the skin and making it drier and thinner.
So what should girls wanting to try out moisturising and makeup for the first time be doing then?
Well purchasing products that penetrate the skin and don’t sit on the surface and therefore target the issues at a cellular level is a good way to go.
And this applies from the first time and for always, no matter what age.
By doing this you can keep the skin cells functioning, and by applying a topical solution you can help the cells function rather than replace their function.
So, what’s our consensus on the theory…
Well, we all need to moisturise but it should be done in a certain way and with particular products that have been clinically proven to penetrate the skin as ours have!
So what do you think?
