Hydration and Moisturization

Hydration and Moisturization

Posted By Edge
During the colder months of the year, our skin may suffer from a lack of moisture, leading to dryness and dullness. It is common for our skin to become dry during the cold season when we are exposed to low temperatures and wind. The most important reason for this is the fact that in these months there is less humidity in the air and our skin has a harder time absorbing the moisture it needs.

To combat this issue and keep your skin looking its best, it’s important to share definitions for moisturization and hydration, understand why these two methods are different and take time to implement adequate products into your daily skincare routine.

Moisturizers work on the outside of your body while hydrating products tend to work internally.

Moisturizer and hydration are often used interchangeably to describe a product, but they don’t mean the same thing. Hydration is the process of improving water content in your skin cells – when hydrated skin is plumper and more radiant looking. Moisturizers can help with hydration by providing humectants, like hyaluronic acid and glycerin, which are substances that attract water. Alternatively, emollients like shea butter can increase the amount of oil produced on the surface of your skin so that it doesn’t get dry.

Here are the following Ingredients used to hydrate and moisturize the skin:

Hydrators: Hyaluronic acid, Glycerin, Aloe, Honey, Snail mucin, Lactic acid, Citric acid, Ceramides.
Moisturizers: Nut or Seed oil, such as Coconut, Almond, Hemp, or Shea butter, Plant oils, such as Squalene, Jojoba, Rosehip, Tea tree, Mineral oil, Lanolin, and Ceramides.

When your skin is dry, it loses its ability to hold water and therefore becomes dry, tight, and uncomfortable. If the skin becomes too dry, it can develop cracks in the outer layer. To help maintain healthy hydrated skin, hydrate before you moisturize! The hydrator helps to absorb water from the atmosphere and infuse the water into the skin while the moisturizer locks in the moisture into the skin cells. This duo is the missing link for keeping your skin soft and smooth all day long.

Here are amazing products that can hydrate and moisturize to achieve that soft and glowy skin!
