We Found A Super-Nourishing Product That’s Great For Dry Skin
Feel uncomfortable in your own skin? You’re not alone – many women struggle with skin irritation and dryness, issues that no amount of moisturising ever seems to solve. But maybe the answer isn’t just more moisturiser – maybe it’s all about the type of moisturiser you’re using…
First, What’s Actually Causing Your Dry Skin?
Dry skin is an uncomfortable skin condition marked by scaling, itching and cracking. It can also lead to more severe conditions like eczema and psoriasis. But how does it happen? Dry skin occurs when our bodies can’t produce the natural oils (lipids) that form a protective barrier – called the hydro-lipid barrier system. External culprits include dry weather, heat, harsh soaps and detergents, air-con, even that hot shower you take after a sweaty gym sesh.
So, What Can You Do About It?
Obviously you need to moisturise – but make sure it’s with a product that assists with solving the underlying problem rather than just masking the symptoms temporarily. SBR Lipocream and SBR Repair are medically-designed to help restore the skin barrier function in dry skin conditions in three stages: reducing water evaporation from the skin; replacing lost lipids in the skin’s outer visible layer; penetrating right into the skin’s epidermis to replace lost lipids – for up to 24 hours.
Ideal for your handbag to reapply when you need it (they come in both 100 and 30g sizes – and we all love a mini emergency product!), or toss them in your gym bag – because they’re basically a water bottle for your skin.
SBR Skin-Savers: The Low-Down
SBR Lipocream assists in treating dry skin by fortifying and repairing the skin’s barrier function by replacing two physiological skin lipids. The special formulation of SBR Repair restores the skin’s barrier, accelerating recovery by carrying skin-identical barrier lipids to the epidermis, where they last longer.
