Is your skin not giving glow, plump, hydrated fabulousness? It might be because you’re struggling with a parched complexion. If so, it might not be the amount of product you apply but rather the type you’re using.
Yes, turns out dehydrated skin and dry skin aren’t the same thing, although at first glance they may appear to be. Here’s what you need to know about hydration.
What’s The Diff?
Listen/read carefully: dehydrated skin needs water and lacks hydration and hydrating products. Whereas dry skin lacks oil and needs to be moisturised with moisturising products. How to tell if your skin needs moisture or hydration? Dry skin can be flaky, rough and dull. Dehydrated skin cells sort of shrink up, causing the skin to look deflated and lifeless.
To Moisturise or Hydrate
So let’s clear this up. Moisturising ingredients lubricate the skin to prevent water from escaping. Ingredients such as: shea butter, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil and ceramides.
While hydrating ingredients in skin care products attract water to the outermost layer of the skin. Hydrating ingredients include: hyaluronic acid, glycerin, fatty acids, amino acids and peptides.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, here’s the brilliant news: It’s quite easy to keep your skin supple and glowly.
