SBR Repair Special Cream For Every Dry Skin 100g
SBR® repair - the first skincare cream for dry skin with both a rapid and a lasting effect because it adds the fatty substances that the skin itself normally takes days to produce. Why does your skin get dry? Your skin is normally moisturised from within so it doesn't become dry because there isn't enough moisture available but because the moisture disappears too rapidly from the skin. In the same way that your washing dries when the sun and wind cause the water in your clothes to evaporate, your skin will dry out if there is too much evaporation from the skin. The skin's tasks: Our bodies are 70% water. Two of the skin's most important tasks are to keep the water inside the body and harmfull things on the outside. These tasks are performed by a fairly thin layer on the outside of the skin that forms the skin's protective barrier against the outside world. This layer consists of dead, flat horn cells surrounded by a layer of special fatty substances. It is these special fatty substances that retain the water and ensure that evaporation is maintained at a level which enables the skin to stay moist, soft and supple. Every day we subject our skin to wear and tear: Each day, we scrape, chafe and scrub a little of the skin barrier. The fatty substances in the barrier are also water-soluble so that water alone can remove them. Soap, body shampoo and hair shampoo all dissolve the fatty substances even more effectively. This doesn't just remove the dirt and grease that we want to get rid of, it also removes the important fatty substances in the protective barrier. When these fatty substances are removed, the effectiveness of the barrier is reduced and evaporation from the skin increases. The skin protects itself by forming new fat which can re-seal the barrier and re-establish the moisture balance. In this way, the skin's protective barrier is constantly maintained and repaired. Why do some people always have problems with dry skin? 1. It can be due to congenital problems. For example, some people cannot form enough of the special fatty substances that are used in the skin barrier. Other people have problems absorbing the fatty substances from food and therefore do not have enough of the constituents needed to enable the skin to produce the barrier formed by the fatty substances. Special cream for very dry skin: For skin that is so dry that everyday skin care alone is not satisfactory. The first skin care cream for very dry skin with both a rapid and a lasting effect because it adds the fatty substances that the skin itself normally takes days to produce. Contains no perfume or preservatives.

How to use SBR® repair: Use SBR® repair when other creams alone are not enough to keep your skin soft and supple. As a general rule, applying the cream once a day should be satisfactory. The evening is an ideal time. You can apply it more often if you wish. A little SBR® repair goes a very long way so just use a small quantity each time. You can supplement SBR® repair with SBR-lipocream several times a day to increase protection against external abrasion or impacts on the skin. Once daily application should be satisfactory. Can be used as supplement to normal skin care.
This is the only product I use for my eczema/dry skin. It is the only product that brings relief for dry, itchy spots my hands. I can even use the product on my face without worrying that my skin will look oily. Thank you for a great product!
Due to sinus and all that comes along with it, blowing my nose is a 24hr routine, eczema/allergic reaction prone skin is a real thing and the only cream to help rid of any dry irritated skin is SBR. I use it on my lips as well; especially when I can't find my Blistex and it repairs the dry and chapped lips over the shortest period of time. Matte lipstick lovers?? This product is your best friend.
