Dry Skin, Xerosis

As we age, we may develop a condition called Xerosis – or dry skin of the aging. This happens when the skin makes too much cholesterol and too few cholesterol esters (a cholesterol molecule joined to a fatty acid). Ceramide production and phytosphingosine production decrease and the skin barrier begins to lose more water than younger skin. As Ceramide production decreases, collagen and elastin are broken down, leading to dreaded wrinkles! Cholesterol medications may also cause very dry and itchy skin.

All of the TrueLipids® products are excellent sources of the lipids that are deficient in aged skin. Ceramide 3 may also prevent the inflammatory process caused by sun exposure which leads to the loss of collagen and elastin. Trade your dry skin for soft, smooth, hydrated skin today!

Recommended Treatment for Xerosis Relief:

For the Face: Use a pH-balanced face wash, and then apply a layer of TrueLipids® Hydrate, Correct & Perfect Lotion (for dry skin) or TrueLipids® True Therapy Ceramide+ Cream (for very dry skin). Reapply throughout the day as needed.

For the Body: Apply TrueLipids® True Therapy Ceramide+ Cream (for dry skin) or use TrueLipids® Relieve & Protect Ointment (for very dry skin) at least 2-4 times a day or as needed. Once the Ointment has provided the desired results, switch to the Cream for maintenance.

For the Lips: Our TrueLipids® TrueLips™ Lip Balm provides you with the soothing relief you’ve always wanted for your lips. Our lip balm doesn’t contain the harmful or “addictive” ingredients found in most products on the market today. Use as needed, and don’t forget to apply before you go to bed!

For Diaper Rash: Well, we hope you don’t need it, but if you do, our TrueLipids® Double Action Boo-Boo & Bum Balm is great for the irritation caused by Depends® rash in older people or for chaffing!
