At Amara, Dublin, our preference is for the ZO Skin Health range of skin products.
The ZO Skin Health Range of products was developed by Dr Zein Obagi, a world renowned dermatologist who has been at the forefront of medical grade skin care since the 1980’s.
Each of the products in the range has been specifically designed to a skin purpose. Most importantly, intelligent delivery systems have been part of the development process ingredients get to where they need to be to effectively address your skin concerns
What is healthy skin?
Healthy skin is distinguishable from unhealthy skin in a number of obvious ways.
|Soft and smooth, Even Tone, Firm, full and tight, Hydrated, Tolerant||Rough, Uneven tone, Firm, full and tight, Disease free, Deflated and loose, Dry, Sensitive|
Maintaining a healthy skin renewal cycle is key to healthy skin. If your skin cells turnover evenly and in a timely fashion, your skin is in good health and your appearance will evidence this. If this renewal cycle is compromised in any way, that’s when problems like congestion and oiliness can occur.
What is the skin renewal cycle?
The skin renewal cycle is the collection of processes that your skin goes through as it regenerates and replaces itself.
Every 6 weeks your skin will give birth to new cells which start below the skin’s surface. Over the course of 6 weeks these cells mature as they rise to the upper layer of your skin. They live exposed on the surface for a time before dying and hopefully exfoliating. At this point the next generation of cells should replace them.
This regeneration process allows your skin to perform and maintain a barrier function role. If it doesn’t run smoothly, the side-effects cause problems and symptoms of unhealthy skin develop.
