Skin Concerns: Dryness, dehydration
Less sebum, an oily substance produced by the body to retain moisture to the skin, leads to dry skin. Dry skin lacks the necessary lipids (fats) needed to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences. Leading to a compromised barrier function.
Melanin rich skin tones tends to be more susceptible to dry skin as it lacks ceramides, fatty molecules that make up the outer barrier of your skin, preventing water loss.
SOOTHE is recommended to moisten skin with gentle, soothing ingredients that hydrate and provide relief to dry skin.
