Skin Care Article: Skin Moisturizing And Its Elasticity
Issued February 15, 2006

Skin Moisturizing And Its Elasticity
Skin Care Article

In the consumers' mind, skin moisturizing and its elasticity are inseparably related, and that the application of moisturizers prevents skin from drying and irritation, it keeps the skin smooth and elastic, which is very important.
Scientific data also contradicts common belief that dry skin contains less water than normal. Nevertheless, aging skin does contain less water and it would be wrong to neglect moisturizers.

It is still not quite clear why some people suffer from dry skin more than others. Moisturizers are usually recommended to old people with the tendency to dry skin as well as to those people, irrespective of their age, who often appear to be in adverse weather conditions.

Relative air humidity of more than 40% is usually enough to keep the skin normally moisturized.

Relative air humidity of more than 40% is usually enough to keep the skin normally moisturized. Strong wind, sun, and frequent use of alkaline soaps, brushes and irritating cosmetics result in skin dryness and the necessity to use Moisturizers.

Smoothness, softness and moisture of the skin are influenced by the three main factors:
- water content in the skin,
- the sebaceous glands,
- performance and presence in different quantities of natural moisturizers in the skin.

Natural moisturizers retain water on the skin surface, connecting it, or affect cell protein configuration which results in water retention in the cells.

Skin's natural moisturizers: urea, phospholipids as well as lactic, malonic, Hyaluronic Acid and pyrrolic carboxylic acids.

relation between moistening ability and plasticizing effect
Clinical tests

The Quality Anti Aging Skin Care and cosmetics products must contain two active ingredients: active moisturizer (for example hyaluronic acid) and active plasticizer (such as elastin and collagen). In this case you can be sure to achieve the desired results.

The obtained results show that the investigated ingredients can be divided into two groups:
- the first group includes those components which possess good moisturizing effect but insignificantly improve skin elasticity;
- the second group includes products that significantly improve elasticity but do not show good moisturizing results.

Thus, we can say that moisturizers undoubtedly influence skin elasticity, but at the same time
THERE IS NO LINEAR CORRELATION BETWEEN THE CAPACITY OF ONE OR ANOTHER INGREDIENT TO MOISTURIZE SKIN AND MAKE IT MORE ELASTIC.
