Mediterranean oils, moisturizers and emollients

How to defend ourselves from the skin's dehydratation and loss of tone? Using Mediterranean vegetable Oils, olive, sweet almonds and sunflower oils rich in omega 3 and 6.

In order to maintain the freshness of adolescent skin, it is vital to ensure that the skin receives constant moisturing, deep nourishment and proper hygiene. Most of all to help it with a diet well-balanced in vitamins and trace elements which are not synthesized by our body but instead taken in from nutrition.

But not only from nutrition -- vitamins often reach the skin more quickly from a cream than from food! That's why nowadays the cosmetic plays a fundamental role in the case of vitamins, trace elements, flavonoids, and especially omega 3 and 6.

Among the most recent and powerful ingredients used in dermocosmetics today are Mediterranean oils such as sunflower and olive oil, rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega 3 and omega 6), amino acids and flavonoids which, thanks to their specific action on microcirculation, help the oxygenation of tissues and cell turnover.

How they work: omega 3 and 6 restore the balance of skin lipids

Technically Omegas are polyunsaturated fatty acids which, from a chemical point of view, share the characteristic of having a double link in position 3 (omega 3) or position 6 (omega 6) in the chain that forms them. They are technically defined as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These acids have parent compounds, which are substances transformed after having been intoduced into our body. Specifically, linoleic acid is the parent compound of fatty acid omega 6, while oleic acid is the parent compound of omega 3. Omega 3 and 6 are essential fatty acids: this means that our body is not able to synthesize them, and so introducing them through our diet is vital.
