2° – ACTIVATOR Hydro
Does your skin have sufficient moisture? Water is important to the mechanics of the human body as it makes up more than two thirds of the human body weight.
Water is an essential component for our body as it depends on water to thrive and survive. Besides that, blood is composed of about 90% water, which carries nutrients and oxygen throughout our body. Every cell, tissue and organ in our body needs water to function optimally. Our body uses water to maintain its temperature, remove waste, and lubricate joints. Water is, therefore, needed for good health.
Water makes up more than half of our body weight. It is expelled each day when we go to the bathroom, sweat and even when we breathe. Our body loses even more water when the weather is really hot. Consequently, we will become dehydrated if we do not replace the water we have lost.
‘Global warming’ is the term used to describe the gradual increase of the average temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere and this has resulted in the Earth’s climate changing permanently. In a report by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2014 (IPCC), scientists have highlighted that more than 95% of global warming is caused by increased concentrations of greenhouse gases and other anthropogenic activities.
The rising temperature on Earth does not bode well for humans, as it will adversely affect us by changing our skin conditions. “Today, the sun is brighter than it has been in the last four centuries,” explains Drew Shindell, Ph.D., a scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies. In 2009, 114 countries signed the ‘Copenhagen Accord,’ a non-binding agreement that recognizes the scientific view that the increase of global temperature should be below two degrees Celsius.
Dry, dehydrated skin can be a temporary condition or a lifelong concern. Dry skin is either hereditary or a product of an increasingly stressful lifestyle coupled with continual exposure to the sun, wind and chemicals in the environment. Either way, it is an unpleasant condition for anyone to deal with.
Cold winds and low temperatures can dry skin out, particularly for people who are always in air-conditioned areas. This will result in depriving the skin of a balanced level of oils and subsequently, lead to premature aging. Quite similarly, a prolonged exposure to the sun causes our skin to lose moisture. To paint a clearer picture: warm and dry air acts like a sponge, soaking up moisture from every surface it touches.
Many people have the mistaken notion that oily skin is impervious to dehydration. This is simply untrue as even oily skin is can be dehydrated. What we need to know is that dehydration is due to lack of water, not oil. This means that the sebaceous glands can still secrete oil or even be overactive in dehydrated skin.
Water is absolutely necessary for our skin. Products that emphasize the importance of ‘deep moisturizing’ or ‘deep hydration’ will no doubt pique our interest. However, a product that promises to moisturize does not necessarily mean it hydrates.
Our skin does not absorb water molecules easily; they only remain on the epidermis of our skin. A majority of skincare products only provide moisture via oil and are unable to deliver hydration to the dermal layer of our skin. Hence, this still causes dryness to the skin.
