Understand the skin structure to know why it is necessary to lock in moisture
You’ve heard a lot about the divine use of moisture locks. But still do not understand why the skin needs to lock in moisture? Join NNO to learn about and the mechanism of action of moisture lock through the structure of the skin, for smart beauty together!
1/ Skin Structure
Skin is made up of 3 main components:
Epidermis: consists of many layers of living cells, the outermost layer is a waterproof layer of keratinocytes that forms a barrier to protect the body from the penetration of harmful chemicals and microorganisms. This part will be related to moisture, smoothness, dryness on the surface of the skin, formation of scales, determining the color, dullness, and pigmentation of the skin.
Dermis: This is the second layer, located under the epidermis and is the thickest area of the skin that contains a lot of collagen and eslatin, making the skin more elastic and supple. This structural layer will be related to the appearance of the skin such as skin firmness, tightness or wrinkles.
The dermis: also known as subcutaneous fat, contains connective tissue, many blood vessels, nerves… This is considered a cushion to help protect and insulate tissues beneath the skin from mechanical and thermal injuries. This structural layer is related to the expression of smooth, regular flatness or cusps.
About the mechanism of water drainage through the skin
The drainage mechanism will involve the epidermis or the epidermis of the skin, specifically the stratum corneum on the skin. The main task of the stratum corneum is to prevent water loss through the skin; the horny cells prevent water from evaporating in two ways: Blocking the interstitial water drainage thanks to the fat layer between the cells and blocking the trans epidermal water loss. Cell membranes with natural humectants. In particular, the water in the keratinocytes acts as a “plasticizer” for the cells, if the skin is dehydrated, it will dry and peel, causing the skin to dry and lose its protective role, easily leading to aging.
Therefore, to effectively moisturize, it is necessary to prevent trans epidermal water loss by reinforcing the lipid barrier in the stratum corneum to protect the surface of the skin.
3/ Uses NNO to lock moisture based on skin structure
Moisturizing with water-based moisturizing ingredients makes the skin instantly soft, but water is very volatile, causing moisture on the skin to evaporate quickly. Meanwhile, lock in moisture with oil-based moisturizing ingredients that create a lipid film to protect keratinocytes at the surface of the skin to prevent water loss through the skin to help moisturize optimally, the skin will be soft and fresh and restore signs of aging and damage.
NNO moisture lock tablets are highly appreciated by experts with a combination of jojoba oil and vitamin E in one step to lock in moisture. Natural Vitamin E – one of the most powerful and representative antioxidants in the lipophilic Vitamin E group. Not only preventing the loss of water through the cell membrane, Vitamin E with antioxidants, has the effect of neutralizing the effects of free radicals (the result of ultraviolet rays from the sun), thereby Soothes sunburned skin and restores it, contributing to limiting the environmental impact of aging skin.
