Tips from Water and Skin Researcher About How “Pre-Moisturizing” Improves Benefits of Skin Lotion
Date:11/13/2013

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 13, 2013

There are numerous commercial “moisturizing” lotions, crèmes, gels, medications, ointments, masques and facial preparations available for dry, chapped, irritated or dehydrated skin, and they can be very effective. A recent report by water and skin researcher Sharon Kleyne cautioned that to obtain full benefit from a skin treatment, the skin should first be “pre-moisturized.” This is especially true during winter months when skin tends to be drier and more prone to chapping.

Sharon Kleyne is Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, a fresh water and health research, education and product development center. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the company’s global signature product, provides a soothing mist of 100% fresh water vapor to instantly soothe dry and chapped skin. Kleyne also hosts the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes.

According to Kleyne, there are two facts everyone should know about skin and skin “moisturizing.” First, unlike the body’s interior, the skin’s surface is slightly acidic with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5. This acidic surface is called the “acid mantle protection barrier.”

Second, says Kleyne, the primary purpose of a moisturizing lotion is to help seal in existing skin water to prevent further drying. The purpose is not to increase the skin’s water content. Normal, healthy skin contains 70 to 80 percent water but when the humidity, or water vapor content, of the surrounding atmosphere becomes too low, some of the skin’s water is lost to evaporation. The result is dry, dehydrated and vulnerable skin.        

Kleyne emphasizes that skin has difficulty absorbing any substance, including water, which does not have a slightly acidic pH balance compatible with that of skin. Furthermore, any number of factors can nudge the skin’s natural pH balance towards the alkaline, making water absorption more difficult and enhancing the environment for bacterial growth. Bacteria prefer an alkaline environment.

Tap water, says Kleyne, tends to be alkaline, with a pH greater than 7.0. A pH above 7.0 is incompatible with the skin slightly acidic pH. In addition, skin lotions usually contain little or no accessible water. Alkaline water or water vapor may soak into the skin, but it won’t be chemically bound-up and retained. Instead, the alkaline water will quickly evaporate back out, often taking some of the skin’s deep semi-bound moisture with it.

To make skin treatments more effective, according to Kleyne, many doctors now recommend, immediately prior to applying these substances, that you you pre-moisturize the skin with a pH-compatible, all-natural humidifying mist. The mist will supplement the water in the skin’s deep moisture reservoir and will restore the acid mantle to a correct, healthy pH balance.

For pre-moisturizing, Kleyne suggests a personal hand-held skin or eye humidifying device that emits a 100% fresh water mist. Kleyne’s Bio Logic Aqua Research products, Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® and Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, are ideal for providing supplemental, pH balanced water to dry, chapped, irritated and dehydrated skin.

Kleyne also urges, for optimal skin and general health, drinking at least eight full glasses of fresh water each day, in addition to all other fluid intake.
