Understanding Dry Skin and Which Epionce Products to Use

Published on January 16, 2017

To understand dry skin, let’s start with the root cause. A healthy skin barrier contains an equal ratio of ceramide, cholesterol and free-fatty acids. These elements act as the glue holding skin cells together. When this ratio is disrupted, the skin’s barrier is compromised, and can result in dry skin.

The Epionce Renewal products go beyond the hydration focus that many traditional moisturizers have. Instead, Epionce Renewals are a powerful form of treatment that contains the ideal ratio of skin barrier lipids in a cholesterol-dominant 3:1:1. This is necessary to trigger the skin’s natural ability to repair itself, which strengthens the skin barrier. This allows the skin to better hold moisture, and helps prevent and mitigate dryness in the skin.

Dry skin can also be caused by:

  • Low ceramide, the moisture-holding agent found in the skin’s lipids
  • Low sebum (oil), vital to lubricating skin layers and acts as a protectant
  • Cold, dry weather
  • Harsh ingredients in skin care products
  • Aging skin
  • Hormonal changes

The needs of the skin vary from site to site on the body. The Epionce Renewal products have been formulated specifically for different sites.
