Diabetic Body Care Cream

An Intensively Hydrating Skin Cream that is Clinically Proven to Correct the Dry, Sensitive Skin, and Premature Skin Ageing associated with Diabetes

Diabetes Skin Cream

Diabetic Body Care Cream is one of a range of unique Medical Skin Care products developed by NAQI aimed at improving the dry skin of diabetic patients. The cream provides intensive hydration of dry and sensitive skin. It slows the ageing process and reduces the yellow discolouration of the skin.

Diabetic Body Care cream is a high quality and very effective skin cream that is non-greasy and easily absorbed by the skin. It is suitable for the face and entire body, and should be applied once or twice daily to dry and sensitive skin and gently massaged in.

Skin and its function

Your skin forms a barrier that reduces water being lost from your body and prevents anything getting in from outside. The skin is a complex structure composed of three layers; the epidermis, the dermis and the hypodermis. The basal or lower layer of the epidermis is the active layer containing cells that are continually dividing and multiplying, which then rise gradually to the surface of the skin. Here they change from living keratinocytes to dead corneocytes that are lost naturally or more aggressively through the use of soaps/detergents or exfoliants.

The continuous process of division and shedding of skin cells takes 28 days, but slows with ageing. The dead cells at the surface are surrounded by a lamellar lipid structure made up of lipids and water, which forms the outer layer of skin and is called the stratum corneum. This outer layer has a structure like a wall that forms an effective barrier to prevent excessive water loss, as well as the penetration of substances that cause irritation. Water is always lost naturally and to prevent a fall in water levels and skin dehydration, water is constantly sourced from the deeper dermal layers of the skin.

Diabetes and Dry Skin

Skin problems occur very frequently among diabetics and skin care is particularly important for people with the condition. Diabetic patients are prone to skin problems because high blood glucose increases water loss causing dry skin. Diabetics lose more water through urination and usually do not drink enough to replace it. Dry skin is common all over the body, but in most cases it is worse on the extremities; the legs, feet, elbows, and hands. The loss of fluid damages the unique barrier structure of skin causing more moisture to be lost and a viscous circle emerges.

Dry skin is less supple and can crack, and these areas can then become easily infected.  The reduced sensitivity of nerves due to diabetic neuropathy and circulation can often mean that Diabetics are unaware of the skin problems that are developing. As a result skin problems are often not identified until they reach an advanced stage, when they can cause serious problems.

Diabetic Skin Ageing

Diabetics also suffer from accelerated skin ageing. An excess of sugar in the system reacts with the collagen and elastin matrix in the dermis of the skin to form AGES (Advanced Glycation End products). The dermis matrix gives the skin its suppleness and elasticity and damage to the dermal proteins because of higher blood sugar levels and AGEs causes the skin to age prematurely. The skin loses its elasticity, looks dull and both the skin and nails may turn yellow.

NAQI Diabetic Skin Care Products

A skin care routine with the specialist products from NAQI designed for Diabetic skin problems, can slow down the process. NAQI Body Care has been designed to correct dry skin among diabetics and reduce the premature ageing process. The efficacy of NAQI Diabetic creams has been clinically proven in studies undertaken by the University of Liege in Belgium.

The cream improves the barrier function of the epidermis by increasing levels of lamellar lipid and binds water within the skin with humectants. It also stimulates the lower dermal layer to protect itself from dehydration, inhibits glycation end products that age the skin and provides antioxidants and anti-inflammatories to protect the skins cells and reduce irritation.

It is recommended to use NAQI Body Care as part of your daily skin care routine in conjunction with their other specialist Diabetic skin products; Foot Care cream, Body Lotion and Body Soap.
