Why is Skin Aftercare Necessary?

During the washing process of skin, individual components of the hydrolipic layer are dissolved. This process is accelerated by the use of warm water and cleansing agents, regardless of whether acid, alkaline, or neutral soaps are used. Because of the dissolved hydrolipic layer, the skin loses a considerable part of its protective function. The regeneration of the hydrolipic layer must be accomplished by the skin itself rather than by external means, in order to be biologically effective. Skin care lotions are therefore designed and intended to encourage and support the regeneration process of the skin.
