Enjoy Swimming But Don't Want Dry Skin? Here's the Secret
Exercise is an activity that has many benefits for the body, both on land and in the water. Both can improve overall health by eliminating toxins harmful to the body. Therefore, many people exercise to stay healthy and avoid fatigue.
However, not all populations around the world can engage in this sport, as seen from the 2019 Lloyd’s Register Foundation World Risk Poll data. More men are capable of swimming compared to women. In essence, it's not about the number of people who can swim, but in nearly every part of the world, anyone can swim.
Swimming is enjoyable and has a positive impact on health, such as helping with weight loss, improving heart and lung health, and managing stress.
However, despite its significant benefits for the body, it turns out that swimming for too long or too often can have negative effects, one of which is dry skin. The chlorinated pool water is a major cause of this, especially for those with sensitive skin.
Dry skin can affect your appearance, especially if it causes flakiness, peeling, and cracking. In medical terms, dry skin is called xerosis, and this condition can occur on any part of the body.
To prevent this, a suitable solution for skincare is needed. One of them is to use HYDRAFENCE™. This ingredient is a natural active moisturizer and skin barrier enhancer based on a new hydrocolloid matrix of rice amylopectin, containing a calcium-rich fraction extracted from the Lithothamnion calcareum algae. It aligns with key aspects of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, especially SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) and SDG 12 (Ensuring Sustainable Production and Consumption Patterns).
HYDRAFENCE™ provides hydration: immediate action (30 minutes), long-lasting hydration (120 hours), and cumulative results. It promotes overall wellness by defending against TEWL (Transepidermal Water Loss), reinforcing the skin's barrier function, and providing freshness and comfort. It has a dual action by working from the inside and protecting from the outside, and it's suitable for all genders, as confirmed by in vivo tests for unisex clean beauty.
The effects of HYDRAFENCE™ have been proven in studies conducted on humans. HYDRAFENCE™ 3% was topically applied for 6 days to explants obtained from a 54-year-old woman. At the end of the treatment, some explants were delipidated to produce an alteration in the skin's barrier.
It appears that the layer of HYDRAFENCE™ creates a thicker barrier, making the skin more moisturized and less dry.
This demonstrates that HYDRAFENCE™ can have a significant impact on dry skin. Here is the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) list for HYDRAFENCE™: Aqua (water), Glycerin, Amylopectin, Lithothamnion Calcareum Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Pentylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, and Xanthan Gum.
