Skin is the protective shield of the human body, which prevents microorganisms and chemicals from the atmosphere to enter the body. It maintains the body temperature, helps in screening out harmful radiations, and synthesizes Vitamin D in the presence of sunlight and UV radiation. Skin is mainly made up of two layers, Dermis (inner layer) and epidermis (outer layer).
Healthy skin has an even color, smooth texture, hydration, and normal sensations. Consistent color is a sign of youthful and healthy skin. Loss of hydration due to changes in the cells in the epidermis causes drying and flaking of the skin, followed by itching and scaling.
Factors responsible for unhealthy skin can be:
- Hormonal imbalance
- Unhygienic lifestyle
Moisture on the skin can attract unwanted fungi and yeast, making the skin prone to various skin conditions such as:
- Athlete’s foot
- Jock itch
More than one billion people worldwide are affected by fungal infections. The rate of invasive fungal infection has dramatically increased in recent years.
Natural antifungal remedies such as oregano oil, spilanthes, aloe vera, coconut oil, garlic, cranberry juice, turmeric, tea tree oil, plain yoghurt, and apple cider vinegar are widely used by people to treat the infection. Every skin type is different and requires the correct percentage of ingredients and a formulation that can suit the skin type of an individual without leading to further infections and side effects or allergies.
Keto skin cream is designed to treat the fungal and yeast infections of the skin. Ketoconazole 2%, a broad-spectrum synthetic antifungal agent in the cream disrupts the fungal cell membranes by impairing the synthesis of ergosterol which is essential for the fungus to survive. Pores in the fungal membrane are created, which results in leaking out the essential components of the fungus, thereby killing and clearing the skin.
The skin is exposed to external influences every day and night, which are not good for the skin as it can cause skin irritation and rashes due to infectious microorganisms such as fungus. Another product that belongs to the antifungal family is the Keto lotion hindi. The lotion can be used to treat ringworm, athlete’s foot, and other skin conditions caused by fungal growth. Many of the fungi live on the topmost layer of the skin and do not penetrate deeper.
