According to the Mayo Clinic, “Dry skin is people of all ages. Dry skin makes the skin look wrinkled, feel rough, itchy, flaky or scaly. a common condition that affects Dry skin, also known as xerosis or xeroderma, has many causes, including cold or dry weather, sun damage, harsh soaps, and over-bathing.” According to the Mayo Clinic, “You can do a lot on your own to improve dry skin, including moisturizing (Impress Moisturizer) and practicing sun protection (Impress PrimeShade) year-round.”
As people age, the skin thins and produces less of the oils (skin surface lipids) needed for the skin to retain water. Specifically, the skin contains three necessary fatty lipids that serve to retain moisture. Good News! These three fatty lipids can be restored to their optimal balance by applying Impress Moisturizer.
Impress Moisturizer contains L22, a patented noncomedogenic lipid complex, carefully engineered from botanically-sourced lipids (Jojoba, Macadamia and Olive) that restores a healthy youthful lipid profile back to a typical 22 year old. Research shows that the relative ratio of each lipid type varies as a function of age. As we age our lipid profile changes, resulting in dryer skin. L22 was designed to reflect the skin lipid ratios (profile) found in young skin. L22 is the botanical equivalent of a healthy young adult’s natural skin oil (skin surface lipids) that restores the skin’s fatty lipid panel back to one’s early 20’s.
Result: skin that is able to hydrate and maintain a healthy moisture barrier.
