limit how long you stay in the shower and lower the water temperature. Exposure to hot water can irritate the top dermal layer and cause terrible drying
Denver, CO. (PRWEB) December 10, 2008
Winter is usually the toughest time of the year for scores of people across the country suffering from dry skin problems. According to estimates by The National Center for Health Statistics, approximately 9 million Americans report dry skin. Complaints range from how itchy the skin feels-to how old the skin looks. And the effects of eczema, cracked skin, and psoriasis are only exacerbated in the cold dry air. Although millions of dollars is spent annually to remedy the problem, many complain that finding relief is rare.
So why does it seem that overcoming dry skin is so elusive? According to skin care expert Neeche Aguiar, the founder of a new line of natural dry-skin remedies called NeecheNaturale, "There are multiple factors that contribute to dry, flakey skin during winter. First and foremost is the weather itself. Extreme temperature changes, such as going from the frigid outdoors into a heated house can wreak havoc on the dermal layer. Humidity drops during these months and so does the amount of moisture that enters your skin. Of course, the world's rapidly changing ecology and household pollutants are no friends to health either".
Aguiar says there are several steps you can take to aid in skin protection and hydration: "limit how long you stay in the shower and lower the water temperature. Exposure to hot water can irritate the top dermal layer and cause terrible drying". Aguiar is also a proponent of installing a humidifier in the home or office to add moisture to your environment. "And a very easy step you can take is making sure to bundle up with a hat, scarf and gloves when going outside into extremely cold weather. This will help buffer against dramatic temperature changes to the skin". A complete list of her tips to combat dry skin is available at http://www.neechenaturale.com.
Aguiar believes that the vast majorities of products that are advertised to fight dry skin do the exact opposite; "most contain water which dilutes any beneficial ingredients. It's a cheap filler...as is alcohol and a long list of detrimental chemicals that can soak into the skin and ravage the cells. And, since over 80% of what our dermal structure comes in contact with is absorbed, it is critical that only the freshest and most impurity-free substances be used to moisturize". The ironic part, according to Aguiar, is that many of these supposed dermal miracles are charging top dollar for products that are anything but effective. "Consumers are tired of being ripped-off and are greatly concerned about what they are putting on their skin"
NeecheNaturale was founded by Aguiar as a healthy way to protect the skin from extreme weather and pollutants. Healing occurs by infusing the skin layers with high concentrations of natural elements such as mango, macadamia nut, coffee, cacao, olive, avocado, grape, aloe and sweet almond--each containing essential vitamins and anti-oxidants. She reports that the results of using her product line, which is now available at http://www.neechenaturale.com, have been amazing. "Every day we get feedback that dry skin problems, including those of eczema, cracked skin, and psoriasis have completely disappeared. And besides the dry skin relief, many are finding that their skin looks more youthful too".
Aguiar's expertise in skin health is based upon four generations of family research with botanical substances. Her great grandfather first started experimenting with natural compounds in a quest to produce a healing salve for burns. What he discovered was that not only did the fruits and vegetables he was using have healing qualities, but that his wife raved about how her skin looked and how the salve moisturized. "My family has always had a passion for unlocking the mysteries of nature", says Aguiar, who has dedicated the past fifteen years to produce a line of exfoliates, extreme skin-hydration butters and mineral make-up made with heavy concentrations of superior ingredients.
