Jacobs' Book: The ABC's of Dry and Sensitive Skin
Is There A “Perfect” Skin Care Product?
Realistically speaking, there is no such thing as a truly zero irritation skin care product. Even pure water can make certain people itch!!! You should keep in mind that even the best products may contain certain potentially sensitizing or irritating ingredients which must be used for health, safety, or processing purposes. Practically speaking, you should read the list of ingredients on the bottle. If you look at the labels of most popular “hypoallergenic” personal products, moisturizers, cleansers, and diaper wipes, you’ll see many allergenic or irritating ingredients such as quaternium-15, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, topical vitamin E, aloe, tea oil, fragrance, and dyes. Look closely. Many products marketed for sensitive skin contain these harsh ingredients. There are major brands marketed for sensitive skin, containing these and other harsh ingredients. Beware, dry and sensitive person. Use only products that are truly safe. How do you know if a product is safe? Ask your dermatologist. Stuff all of your personal products into a big bag and take them to your dermatologist. Ask your doctor to review and explain all the ingredients one by one.
What is The ABC Clinical Lipid Therapy® Skin Care System?
The True Moisture® ABC Clinical Lipid Therapy® Skin Care System is a very special therapeutic principle with three practical rules to follow when caring for dry and sensitive skin. Think of the ABC method as a “topical nutritional program,” like “healthy food” for your hungry dry and sensitive skin barrier. The ABC skin care concept will enable you to nourish, repair, and maintain your skin. Just like your body needs nutrition, your skin also skin also nutrition. Some people eat a bag of potato chips and a soda and say "I just had a good meal." But have they really? Certain foods contain empty calories but little nutrition. Some people use intense skin lotion and say, "Now I am moisturized!" But are they really? Certain moisturizers are also empty of true skin nutrition. While your body needs nutritional units called proteins, carbohydrates, essential fats, and vitamins, your skin barrier needs nutritional units called "lipids."
Most people are unaware that there is a skin barrier organ; so, let’s learn about it. If a patient has a hearing problem, the doctor treats the internal ear. If a man has a heart attack, the doctor treats a coronary artery. If the body has a medical problem, a doctor will treat a specific organ. If a patient has dry and sensitive skin, the specific bodily organ that needs to be treated is the skin barrier. Thus, if you have dry and sensitive skin, a dermatologist will treat your skin barrier. The ABC Clinical Lipid Therapy® System is a skin barrier focused skin care method that emphasizes the care and nourishing of your three skin barrier lipids.
