MOISTURIZERS, PROTECTIVE EMOLLIENTS & SKIN REJUVENATORS:
"Why use a skin moisturizing lotion?"
Moisturizers protect your skin, lock in moisture and keep skin hydrated. Learn more about the types of skin moisturizers and their beneficial skin-healthy ingredients below. To shop online for moisturizers follow the Moisturizer Image Links below
There are many beneficial substances and variations of these substances that help moisturize, heal and protect skin. These moisturizers are important in many dermatologic and cosmetic skin therapies. The three kinds are Humectants, Occlusives & Emollients. Humectants - promote water retention; Emollients - soothe and soften; and Occlusives - assist in absorbing and retaining.
Below is a list of some of the most common used in today's moisture lotions and skin care products. The scientific names of some of these beneficial ingredients and plant extracts are sometimes not recognized, for example ALOE may be listed as 'Aloe Barbadensis', Chamomile as 'Chamomilla Racutta Matricana', Cucumber as 'Cucumus Sativus', Kiwi as 'Actinidia Chenesis', Vitamin E as 'Tocopheryl Acetate', Shea Butter 'Butyrospermum Parkii', Grape Seed as 'Vitis Vinifera', Tea Tree Oil as 'Melaleuca Alternifolia' or Beeswax as 'Cera Alba'.
Moisturizers are used to restore the protective barrier function of the skin (epidermis), to cover and seal tiny openings or cracks in the skin, thereby providing a soothing protective film which helps increase the water-content of the epidermis. By slowing evaporation of the skin's moisture, skin maintains hydration and improves the appearance and texture of dry, damaged or aging skin. Newer moisturizing products which contain much greater amounts of antioxidant vitamins, herbal plant extracts, alpha-hydroxies, collagen, lipids, keratin and elastin help to provide anti-aging, skin-firming, and sun-protectant effects.
The "Science" behind skin moisturizers: Epidermal water content is crucial for skin elasticity and for the prevention of dry skin. Proper skin moisturization inhibits trans-epidermal water loss by preventing the passage of water out of the upper layers of the epidermis. Since water originates in the deeper epidermal layers and moves upward to hydrate cells in the 'stratum corneum' (the upper dermis), water may be eventually lost to evaporation. Moisturizers in the form of lotions, creams and serums help impede water loss due to evaporation in the upper dermis.
Moisturizers increase skin hydration significantly and when moisturizers are used to hydrate and improve skin elasticity, dermatologists usually suggest using lipid-rich formulas. Moisturizing skin lotions and treatments repair the skin barrier, retain and increase water content, restore the lipid barriers' ability to attract, hold and redistribute water maintaining the skin's integrity and appearance. Moisturizers perform these functions by acting as humectants [promote water retention], emollients [soothe & soften], and occlusives [assist in absorbing and retaining moisture].
Notably, many products may also contain parabens, sorbates and glycols to assist in preserving the beneficial properties of the products. Some individuals are sensitive to these and a skin care professional should always be consulted before using a new product or starting a new skin care regime.
