Ladies hate having dry and sensitive skin. I do and my case is mostly due to being exposed to environmental pollution and harsh weather conditions.
According to statistics, 1 in 3, or 35% of women have dry skin but don't realize that they do. Other factors said to contribute to this condition include stress, air conditioning, smoking, bathing in hot water and using soap which can contribute to destroying the natural moisture balance of the skin, making it rougher and more sensitive.
In some women, dry skin can look obviously dehydrated or shrunken and, at the same time, feel tight and itchy. Don't ignore this! Experts say that dry, sensitive skin requires special care and attention. Most often, they recommend patients to use Physiogel moisturizers from Stiefel, a Glaxo SmithKline (GSK) company.
Phyisiogel is formulated using the revolutionary Derma Membrane Structure (DMS) Technology, which resembles the natural building blocks of the skin to effectively help repair its barrier and prevent moisture loss.
I learned from a dermatologist, during Physiogel's Beauty Experts Circle event yesterday in Holiday Inn & Suites Makati, that conventional moisturizers may only mask skin dryness to give skin transitory moisture that can be easily washed off with water. Physiogel, however, moisturizes by mimicking the natural lipid composition of the skin and keeps it hydrated for up to three days, even with washing or bathing.
Personally, I use Physiogel Cleanser to remove dirt and makeup from my face at night to avoid wetting my tired eyes, which happens when I use facial wash and water. I just dab the liquid on my face then wipe off with cotton. In the morning, my skin would always feel soft and look refreshed.
At the event, makeup artist to celebrities, RB Chanco, gave a demonstration using Physiogel products for cleansing and moisturizing. She made a pretty member of the audience even more beautiful with her expertise while giving other guests a lot of makeup tips and tricks.
If you have sensitive skin but love makeup, make sure to stay away from cosmetics that can cause irritation, inflammation, and other allergic reactions. Be sure to check labels that specifically has the words hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and fragrance-free. Physiogel is so gentle, you can even use it on babies' skin!
Expert-recommended Physiogel is clinically proven to repair and rehydrate dry, sensitive skin: Phyisogel Cleanser has a gentleness that is next to water. With one of the least irritation potentials, it is suitable for use with or without water. Likewise, you may also want to use Physiogel Cream and Physiogel Lotion as your first line of defense again skin dryness.
The Philippine Medical Data Index (PMDI MAT 2012) recognized Physiogel as the number one dermatologist-prescribed moisturizer in the country. It is available in leading drugstores and supermarkets nationwide, and also come in handy 10ml sachets.
