Twenty-four hour skin hydration and moisturisation

Just like your body needs hydration to function best, so does your skin. You might think hydration is only for dry or dehydrated skin, but no matter your skin type or age, hydration is key when it comes to healthy skin.

Hydration vs Moisturisation

However, what is hydration, and is it the same as moisturisation? Is splashing water on your skin doing enough? You may be surprised to learn that water alone will not keep your skin moisturised. In fact, it’s likely to have been evaporated, along with your skin’s natural oils, by the time you leave the bathroom. And this overtime is likely dry out your skin.

What your skin needs is hydrators and moisturisers. Hydrators are ingredients such as water, glycerin or hyaluronic acid, that absorb water from the atmosphere or your skin and hold it in place on your skin surface. On the other hand, moisturisers are oil-based ingredients such as emollients like plant oils, shea butter and cocoa butter. They work by creating a seal on the surface of skin which prevents water from escaping, and therefore leaves the skin feel smoother and less dry.

For optimal skin health, you need to use both hydrators and moisturisers as part of your skin care routine. Start with a hydrator, and while the skin is damp, apply the moisturiser to lock in the extra hydration.
