When it comes to dealing with dry skin, it’s important to keep in mind that not all moisturizers are the same. Maintaining the skin barrier intact is crucial to preventing the inflammation that can lead to dryness, flaking and redness. I recommend Sente Dermal Repair Cream, an innovative cream that contains a compound called heparan sulfate, a sugar derived substance found in healthy skin. Not only does Sente Dermal Repair Cream improve skin hydration by improving barrier functon, studies have also shown that it improves skin elasticity, improves skin firmness, reduces brown spots and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These benefits are possible because heparan sulfate is a true multitasking molecule. I find it very helpful in treating sensitive skin or skin has been made sensitive by antiaging products, such as retinol.
