Dry Skin Care
Dry skin is one of the most common skin problems. In order to stay soft and supple your skin needs to retain its natural moisture. But when exposed to direct sunlight in summer or harsh weather (cold and wind) in winter, when the central heating dries out the skin, it quickly loses its natural moisture and oils, becomes dry and chapped.
Excessive bathing and applying conventional lotions temporarily moisturizes the skin, but, in fact, frequent washings strip away thin oily lipid layer, that protects the skin, imparts flexibility and helps keep moisture within.
Reasons why adding artificial moisture may aggravate dry skin condition
By applying artificial moisture (conventional lotions) to the skin's surface you may be sending the wrong message - that your skin is being adequately moisturized, when in fact it is actually dehydrated. This often results in oil glands reducing production of natural moisture, which is vital to remedy a dry skin condition
By relying on artificial moisturizers skin will often lose more moisture than it gains. This often becomes very apparent if you suddenly stop using conventional lotions, your skin becomes drier than it was before you began using traditional moisturizers. That is because your skin will often produce less natural moisture if it senses that artificial moisture is sitting on the surface of the skin.
Restoration of natural moisture balance results in improvement of skin's protective abilities
One of the functions of the outer layer of skin is to act as a one-way barrier, preventing irritants from coming in but still allowing it to breathe. But when skinís natural moisture and oils are lost, dry skin is no longer able to function properly, allowing absorption of the irritants into skin's deeper layers.
The solution to your dry skin problem (even painful cracked skin) is found in Gloves In A Bottle. Gloves In A Bottle is a very special dry skin lotion. It's a shielding lotion
that bonds with the outer layer of skin, turning it into what works like an invisible pair of gloves
These "invisible gloves" keep out moisture-robbing irritants, while retaining skin's own natural oils and moisture and allow the skin to breathe and perspire.
Gloves In A Bottle restores the natural moisture balance of the skin, improving it as it helps keep the skin pores from being clogged with outside irritants that are often too complex to be eliminated naturally.
