Ultimate Hydration Facial

About This Project

Sanity's Facial Product Partner

Very excited to announce the new luxury facial at Sanity, a tailored Ultimate Hydration Facial using advanced products from Eve Taylor and supplemented with Beauty Boost super charged hydration eye masks – this facial is a amazing 12 step facial that smoothes lines, plumps the skin and aids recovery from sun damage.

Hydration is one of the key elements required by the epidermis for it to function properly and allow the optimum health of the skin.  Skin dehydration occurs when the water content is lost from the cells of the outermost layer of the skin (stratum corneum).

The stratum corneum cells (of a healthy skin) hold water content, when the percentage drops below 10% it is then classed as dehydrated.

The skins outermost layer acts as a barrier to our body, when functioning correctly it stops essential water content escaping and also stops environmental aggressors penetrating.  When the skin becomes dehydrated it causes tiny cracks and fissures within the barrier allowing the evaporation of water through these cracks, this is known as Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL)

Aggressors are able to penetrate through these cracks which can lead to irritation and infection.

Skin dehydration can affect all skin types and people of any age. Often people associate dehydration just with dry skin but this is wrong – even the oiliest of skin can become chronically dehydrated.  There are many external factors that can cause the skin to lose its water content these include:

Soap or other alkaline products, Alcohol (both topically applied and drinking),the use of very hot water, excessive exfoliation or too vigorous exfoliation, central heating and air conditioning, extreme weather fluctuations.

The effects of dehydrated skin can include:

  •  Fine lines
  •  Wrinkles
  •  Premature ageing
  •  Redness
  •  Soreness
  •  Irritation
  •  Infections
  •  Itchy skin
  •  Flaky skin
  •  Skin tightness / shrunken sensation

Characteristics of dehydrated skin include a tight shine to the skin; the appearance of very fine lines running across your skin which ‘kris-kross’ when you move with facial expressions or when analysed with your finger. Fine age lines may appear more pronounced.
