The Importance of Bathing the Skin
Water is the hidden grace in this routine. Water offers life, flourishing, vitality. In a parched desert, an oasis of water is a game changer. The same applies to a dehydrated skin barrier.
When repairing the skin barrier, it vital that the skin receives topical hydration. Moisture activates enzyme action in the skin, which in turn help to rebuild the skin barrier. No water – no enzymes – no healing.
Drinking water is important for general hydration. But it’s not enough for the skin. When you bathe the skin, it absorbs precious moisture in the upper layers of the dermis. Applying the facial oil immediately after seals in the hydration and stops it from escaping.
The skin will hold onto topical hydration for 12 hours and then it is thirsty for more. This is why we bathe the skin in the morning and the evening.
Do not be tempted to skip this step! The bathing step is vital. It brings out the best in the soothing products and in your skin.
