Wounds, injuries, sores and ulcers are events nased on the loss of skin intactness. The skin loses hydration and elasticity and is more susceptible to injury, it ends up having a characteristic red colour and “breaks”. Diseases such as diabetes (diabetic foot), traumatic events, or just the temperature of the environment can cause injury (stinging, icing, fissures). Prolonged immobility and the presence of protectors or gels aggravate the health of an already delicate and fragile skin, especially in the elderly.
If you wish to help improve the skin’s texture you should try to promote the production of collagen and elastin, keep your skin hydrated, fight free radicals and prevent cellular aging through the help of products that respect nature and the delicacy of thin skin.
