How skin moisture loss leads to sticky skin
But it also has to do with hydration. In an old episode of the Clean Beauty School podcast, I spoke with board-certified holistic plastic surgeon Anthony Yoon, MD, who described dry skin as a raisin compared to well-hydrated grapes.
There is also an apt analogy here. When your skin lacks moisture, the sticky look becomes more pronounced with wrinkles. Whereas when the epidermis is full of moisture, it will look supple and smooth.
So, if you find that the backs of your hands, neck, or other parts of your body are starting to get sticky, take it as a sign that you need to step up your moisturizer.
The new mindbodygreen body cream is made with a blend of high-quality ingredients of natural origin, such as organic aloe, shea butter, squalane derived from olives, vitamin E and mango seed oil. Mango seed oil, in particular, is high in vitamin C. Not only does vitamin C have powerful antioxidant properties (so it fights free radical damage and protects skin from environmental stressors), but it can help support your natural collagen production.
