Looking after your skin in the winter and holiday season

The much awaited skincare by MoraDerm is now in India at select locations.

Environmental factors, high levels of stress, lack of consumption of water, highly processed diets, lack of exercise are some agents contributing to dry and pre mature ageing skin.

Photo ageing which plays havoc on the skin because of extensive exposure to the sun causes pigmentation and premature ageing of the skin.

Skin is composed of three layers: the epidermis, or outermost layer; the dermis, or middle layer; and the subcutaneous , or basement layer. The dermis contains collagen, elastin, and other fibers that support the skin's structure. It is these elements that give skin its smooth and youthful appearance – and that are damaged by UV radiation (UVR).

When UVR hits the skin, cells in the dermis scramble to produce melanin to the epidermis. This is the process that gives you a tan or discoloration of the skin,which is really just your skin attempting to block the radiation from penetrating your skin.

The wave length of the rays of the sun that penetrate through the skin are called UVA and UVB.

The UVA rays with their longer wavelength, are responsible for much of the damage we associate with photoageing. UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis, where they damage the collagen fibers. This damage causes increased production of abnormal elastin. The unusual amounts of elastin result in the production of enzymes. These enzymes, which rebuild damaged collagen, often malfunction and degrade the collagen, resulting in skin that is not built correctly. As this process is repeated with daily UVA exposure, the incorrectly rebuilt skin forms wrinkles, and the depleted collagen results in leathery skin.

Repeated sun exposure can also cause what are commonly called age spots, or liver spots. They don't have anything to do with your liver, but have everything to do with sun. An ‘age spot' is actually a solar lentigo - a small bit of pigmentation caused by sun exposure. Age spots are usually found on the hands, arms, and face, and on the back in men.

You cannot avoid sun exposure, therefore, MoraDerm Skincare has developed products that inhibit production of melanin, an enzyme that gives skin color, preventing dark spots, combating dark circles around the eyes and combating photo ageing.

Moraderm products contain a "stem cell promotor" which aids in the multiplication of stem cells which are already in the dermis of your own skin. In addition, several bioactive peptides are utilized to enhance firmness, skin tone, moisturization and reducing the depth and appearance of wrinkles. Any ingredient in the Moraderm products have medical data to support the efficacy. Learn more on how these products aid in combating photo ageing at
