Does your skin feel tight, have some fine lines and look rather tired and exhausted? This may be the result many reasons including stress related irritations, climatic influences, unsuitable care, age related factors and of course one of the largest contributing factors, lack of hydration.

There are many good reasons why we should drink water. It’s refreshing, it helps your brain function, maintains energy levels, regulates body temperature, aids digestion and ultimately, keeps your body healthy. In essence, you can´t survive more than a few days without it! Not surprisingly, we humans aren’t like plants. Our skin doesn’t perk up when we consume water. In fact, when you ingest it, water doesn’t go straight to the skin. It travels through the intestines, gets absorbed into your bloodstream, is filtered by your kidneys and then hydrates your cells. When it comes to moisturizing your skin, drinking water falls short of being the main solo player. Your skin type, whether it’s dry, oily or, a combination of both, can be a result of your genes and also how you treat it. The natural moisture level fluctuates depending on what your skin’s protective lipid barrier is exposed to. This lipid layer helps keep moisture in and aids in keeping germs and irritants out; a further reason why dry skin can become red and itchy. Minimizing your exposure to depleting elements such as low humidity, harsh winds, dry heat, high altitude, sun, alcohol, long baths and stripping soaps, can help prevent the loss of natural oil found in our skin.

La Capsule Hydratante

Is a combination of highly effective moisture and calming lipid care which offers intensive cell protection. It directly influences various factors of “thirsty” skin, visibly and noticeably moisturizes it. Micro-encapsulated hyaluronic acid instantly and visibly smoothes skin, and noticeably adding more moisture, leaving it feeling plump and velvety soft.

– A natural complex of rice, sugar beet and rosemary extract protects cell DNA. Skin, which is prone to redness, is gently cared for and inflammatory reactions are right away reduced.
– Cactus-like Salicornia Herbacea extract is a plant which grows in the flooded tidal flats of ocean coasts. It is an intelligent regulator of epidermal water balance and is proven to intensify the skin’s moisture binding capacity.
– Rock samphire extract protects skin cells against external stimuli and UV-induced cell stress (DNA protection of the cells). It increases the production of ceramides, which are valuable skin components. These are responsible for the cohesion of the skin’s hydro lipid film. Thus every single skin cell is activated, working more intensely together. It not only stimulates cell renewal in the skin, it also protects against inflammatory processes; therefore, ideal for sensitive skin which is prone to redness.
Diet can play a role in strengthening your skin’s ability to maintain moisture, too. Foods rich in essential fatty acids may be found in walnuts, flax seed, salmon and olive oil. These foods can help skin cells bind moisture, preventing evaporation. A German study conducted by the Institute of Experimental Dermatology, revealed women and men who applied and took borage-oil supplements for 12 weeks, experienced a significant increase in skin moisture and a reduction in roughness. A healthy diet comprised of three to five servings of fatty acids per week will suffice the average person. Foods rich in fatty acids are valuable sources of alpha or gammalinolenic fatty acid; an acid which has an intensive effect against skin dysfunctions.
