Dry/Dehydrated Skin

WHAT IS DRY AGING SKIN?

Dry Skin is caused by the lack of oil that is not being produced by your sebaceous (oil) glands.  While Dehydrated skin may feel dry and flaky yet produce oil, this is due to lack of moisture (water) in the upper epidermal cells.

TWO TYPES OF AGING SKIN - INTRINSIC & EXTRINSIC

INTRINSIC AGING

Intrinsic (internal) aging is the normal process of the skin aging over time.  Primarily controlled by genetic factors.  However, the change in ones body chemistry and in the skins life cycle will also have a direct affect to this process.

Cells divide more slowly and the inner layer of the skin starts to thin.  Fat cells begin to atrophy and the skins ability to heal and repair itself slows down, leaving the thinning skin to become more sensitive and vulnerable.

The underlying network of elastin and collagen fibers break down.

The loss of lipids (oil) in the skin, deprives the skin of its protective water-lipid emulsions.  Its ability to retain moisture then diminishes causing the breakdown of collagen production and creates aging skin.

EXTRINSIC AGING

Extrinsic aging, also known as Photo-Aging, is premature and controllable aging resulting from environmental factors.  This is caused by sun exposure, both natural and UV, as well as environmental aggressions (pollutions, chemicals, extreme climates).

Greater loss of collagen and elasticity causing deeper wrinkles.

Broken capillaries or spider veins develop caused by weakened capillary walls.

Keratin build up (dead skin cells) occurs causing an uneven thick texture to the surface of the skin.  Melanocytes (pigment cells) are stimulated resulting in irregular pigmentation and age spots.
