The mantra for skin care that we hear so frequently is “Cleanse, Tone, Moisturise”. However there are a number of reasons why moisturisers are at best unhelpful and can be actively harmful.
Moisturisers are the largest-selling group of skincare items, but as “cosmetics”, not medications, they are not subject to the strict regulation over safety and efficacy that medications are required to undergo.
A moisturiser may temporarily help the skin feel softer and smoother, but this only affects the very surface layers of the epidermis, has no effect in the deeper layers of skin, and provides no real improvement or long term benefit.
Far better is to treat the skin properly so that it is active and healthy, and will then be naturally moisturised from within.
Addicted to Moisturiser?
The term “addiction” is a strong and emotive one but the description is accurate.
The good news is that skin problems can be addressed from within by using effective agents that restore function to the skin and re-establish an effective skin barrier.
Introducing ZO Skin Health by Zein Obagi, MD
The principle of Zein Obagi’s skincare is to treat the skin properly so that it is active and healthy, and will then be naturally moisturised from within.
Inevitably there will be some initial reaction when the process is started (as we know there is always a reaction when stopping any form of addiction), but skin strength and resilience can be restored, usually within 3 skin cycles, so around 18 weeks.
As we learn more about the ZO range and the more we see its positive benefits the more convinced we become of the importance of building an effective programme of skincare into anyone’s treatment regime.
