Skin and mucous membranes dryness

Dryness of the skin and mucous membranes is very common, especially in stages such as menopause, when the amount of estrogen is considerably reduced and discomfort such as vaginal dryness or syndromes such as dry eye may appear.

Not only is menopause the cause of dry skin and mucous membranes, but some pathologies such as Hashimoto's disease , an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid, can also cause considerable dryness of the skin and mucous membranes.

Of course, the current pace of life does not help and exposure to long hours of screens, some drugs or even excessive waxing can also cause skin dryness.

Vaginal dryness

Vaginal dryness is one of the most widespread discomforts in terms of dry skin and mucous membranes. It affects many women, especially in the menopausal age. This type of condition can cause a lot of discomfort and pain, so it is important to consult a healthcare professional to address the problem.

There are different treatments to treat vaginal dryness, from the most basic ones that involve changing the soap and underwear fabric, hormone replacement therapy or the use of nutritional supplements made with very powerful ingredients to nourish, hydrate and regenerate skin and mucous membranes. These treatments are usually associated with topical vaginal moisturizing treatments, to enhance their action.

Eye dryness

Dry eye syndrome is a very common condition associated with factors such as aging, contact lenses and different environmental factors such as low humidity. According to research, more than 30% of people over the age of 50 claim to suffer from symptoms related to dry eye.

Symptoms of dry eye syndrome range from burning eyes, redness to itchiness.

The importance of omega-7 in cases of dry skin and mucous membranes

For some time now, fatty acids have taken on a very important role in the health and wellness industry. Specifically, omega-7 has been shown to be highly effective in nourishing, moisturizing and regenerating the skin and mucous membranes.

There are different ingredients that have omega-7 but the most powerful by far is Sea Buckthorn.

Sea buckthorn oil, a revolutionary ingredient

Sea buckthorn is a small shrub whose berries contain an oil very rich in omega-7. Sea buckthorn oil has an exceptional composition, very rich in omega -3, 6, 7 and 9 fatty acids and antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin C, B-Carotene and lycopene. It is also very rich in folic acid, a great key antioxidant for the formation of red blood cells and flavonoids, which protect us against ultraviolet radiation

Sea buckthorn oil can help considerably slow down the aging process of the skin by providing nutrition, hydration and regeneration from within, if ingested. It also increases elasticity and smoothness and decreases the number of deep wrinkles..

Being a very rich source of antioxidants , sea buckthorn oil can also protect the skin from photoaging and the negative effect of free radicals caused by stress, smoking or environmental pollution.

How can oral supplementation help you combat dry skin and mucous membranes?

Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet is of vital importance for the development and well-being of the body. To treat dry skin and mucous membranes, there are a number of ingredients that we should include in our diet, such as those that are very rich in fatty acids, such as oily fish or chia seeds.

In cases of extreme dryness, supplementation will provide complementary nutritional ingredients to the diet that will help us nourish, hydrate and regenerate the skin from the inside and in a 100% natural way.
