Nourishing and protecting your skin

By: Sue Dewes

Did you know that the epidermis, or outer layer of your skin, is only 0.2 – 0.3mm thick?

Whilst incredibly thin, it provides our skin with a waterproof barrier, protection from UV light, temperature regulation, production of bacteria-resistant dead skin cells, protection from dehydration and synthesis of Vitamin D.

So looking after it with a clinic exclusive skin care range is essential for it to function properly.

Secondly, apart from our face, one area of the body that is constantly exposed all year round are our hands.

Often neglected, rarely protected and suffering a constant barrage of sun, wind, detergents, dirt, bacteria, cuts and abrasions, water and a million other contaminants, our hands could do with some tender loving care.

Regularly applying a nourishing hand cream can make a huge difference to the look and feel of your hands.

Often these hand creams provide an occlusive protective barrier that can limit dehydration and provide a degree of protection from the elements.

The trick is to apply it regularly, so place your hand cream beside your bed or next to the couch where it will be seen every time you visit that place.
