Human skin is subject to constant changes. Its condition depends mainly on your overall health. The proper functioning of the skin depends on three basic factors: hydration, regeneration and protection. Proper care adjusted to your skin type should make it easier to maintain healthy and young skin. It is possible when the ingredients of a given formula respond to the needs of the skin. 

We are learning from our skin, so special ingredients are those that occur in it naturally. The substances that should be chosen to take care of dry, dehydrated, mature and sensitive skin include high-quality lipophilic substances. They create a natural barrier which prevents the skin from losing too much water. Valuable substances include lipids, stable vegetable oils with linoleic and linolenic acid, ceramides and glycerides of fatty acids. Do not overlook substances with a direct moisturising effect, for example water-soluble D-panthenol, allantoin and urea. These ingredients are very effective, not only as part of cosmetic skin care, but also in many skin conditions, such as atopic dermatitis, dryness and itching. Clinical symptoms of deficiency of such substances in the skin include roughness and tension of the epidermis, hyperkeratosis, dryness, dehydration, microtrauma and wrinkles. The skin can also be prone to irritation and let in more irritating substances. Using good quality lipid, moisturising and protective creams prevents the above-mentioned skin problems.

It is also worth mentioning skin care that depends of the season. When winter is over, the skin is less moisturised and loses too much fat. Its protective potential is lowered, it becomes grey and is devoid of its natural shine. In order to balance the skin after winter, the best approach is to focus on lipids, which strengthen the stratum corneum, regenerate the skin and support the natural barrier of the epidermis. After winter, your night skin care routine should also include a nourishing face mask, which can even be applied every day after cleansing and before you put on your night cream. In summer, remember to apply sunscreen creams and intensely moisturise the body using light or nourishing lotions. When sunbathing, remember to protect your heels and calves with a product with SPF 30 or 50+.

Many skin problems are caused by dehydration. Water is the most important factor responsible for skin elasticity, softness and smoothness. Proper skin hydration can be achieved using various methods. First of all, you can use hydrophilic compounds that absorb water on the surface of the skin. Secondly, you can use products which create a protective layer on the surface. From a cosmetic point of view, what is often used is the phenomenon of ‘good’ non-continuous occlusion, which is possible thanks to special combinations of emollients (medical oils, liquid shea butter, derivatives of rapeseed oil or coconut oil). Their common characteristic is the ability to soften and smooth out the skin. Emollients are important ingredients of many products and they are often referred to as special substances. Such compounds are characterised by their epidermal properties. They serve as a dressing which protects deeper layers of the skin from excessive water loss. They protect the skin from harmful effects of external factors. They also lower the TEWL (transepidermal water loss) ratio. It is an important indicator which determines the extent of damage to the epidermal barrier. Apart from creating a surface layer, they protect the epidermis against excessive defatting when washing.

When you need to take care of skin with imperfections, acne (which can occur on the skin of both young people and adults), skin with capillaries and skin with discolouration, you should choose products which address specific skin problems. Contemporary dermocosmetics provide a wide selection of products, active ingredients and mechanism of action. Tested, known and safe substances of a high pharmaceutical quality, based on formulas with short ingredient lists, define contemporary dermatological skin care. 

Essential and irreplaceable substances included in modern formulas give you new skin care possibilities that can meet different needs. These substances include: lactobionic acid, fruit acids, lactic acid, lactates, flavonoids, polyphenols and vitamins. If you have problematic or sensitive skin, it is worth focusing on using products from the same product line. Thanks to this approach, you opt for higher effectiveness and it is more certain that your skin will tolerate substances included in the formula, which limits the risk of unwanted reactions, such as allergies.
