Dry Skin
Dehydrated Skin

Dehydrated Skin
Dehydrated skin
is skin that is lacking water while
   Dry Skin is skin that is lacking lipids and water.
     Water constitutes 70% of the dermis and is vital to the skin to preserve its youth. All skin types can be dehydrated even those who have oily or combination skin. Sebum is a key oil in the skin's natural protective coating and is essential to lock in moisture. An equilibrium in water and sebum is fundamental to a healthy skin!
There are many ways to tell when your skin is dehydrated: If your skin is dull or without glow, rough to touch, lacks elasticity and suppleness, feels taut or uncomfortable or is irritable and reactive you may be dehydrated. Weather plays a large role in how our skin reacts as do health problems, improper skin care routine and pollution.
     If your skin is dehydrated try the effective combination of GM Collin's Hydramucine Concentrate and Optimal Gel or Cream. If you are a Yonka fan, try any of the Dermol Serums 1, 2 or 3 (depending on your skins needs) and cream 28.
     If your skin is dry try Lipiad with the Nutriderm Cream from GM Collin or Yonka's signature Yonka Serum or Le Baume for the face and Elastin Jour

Breast Cancer Awareness Month Breast Cancer Month 
    October is traditionally dedicated to breast cancer and awareness of the critical disease that takes our mothers, grandmothers, sisters and friends.
     Over the years Skindulgence has supported many fundraising iniatives and honour the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in their journey towards curing breast cancer.
We are challenged by the reality that only 18% of government grant applications that the National Cancer Institute wants to support get funded. And that 10% fewer patients are in clinical trials because there is not enough money.
     Show off your pink pride with the many accessories at Skindulgence starting at just $2.25! From pens to playing cards, tissues to tins of mints, and hand soap to handbags - we have everything you need to show the world your support for breast cancer research!
