During the cold, dry, winter months, we tend to drink less water than what the body needs. In the summertime, it’s easy to stay hydrated because the heat makes us thirsty and perspire. There’s a misconception that we don’t perspire as such in the winter but that simply isn’t true. Thirst is often a late indication that we’re dehydrated. The body needs just as much water in the winter to function properly, stay alert, and keep the skin moisturized. Our bodies are made of 70% water so it’s necessary to nurture your body with it. When you don’t drink enough, symptoms like headaches and dry coughs occur. Where skin is concerned, this may also include chapped lips, dry, tight skin, and even acne because the skin is busy fighting for hydration, and in turn over-produces oil that causes breakouts.
One of our signature products is the Dormer 211 Cream. That’s because our formula contains an exclusive high molecular weight hyaluronic acid complex. Hyaluronic acid is a superpower when it comes to skin hydration and conditioning. It is a carbohydrate molecule that naturally occurs in our body and attracts moisture to skin cells, making skin soft and supple to the touch. Today, skin care brands all over the world have discovered the unique benefits of hyaluronic acid and have added it to many over-the-counter beauty and skin care serums and moisturizers. Here at Dormer Laboratories, we pride ourselves for being one of the early adopters of the ingredient in our products since 1979.
