Ugh isn't knowing exactly what your skin needs, frustrating? Yep, I totally understand.
Knowing if your skin is dehydrated or dry can be confusing but I'm here to break through confusion with some helpful way to determine what your skin really needs.
Hydrating and moisturizing can be confusing and those words are often used interchangeably. However, skin hydration (dehydration) and skin moisturization (dry) are completely two different things. Your skin needs both daily to be healthy, plump, soft, and radiant! What does your skin need & how to tell?!?
Skin hydration is the amount of water in your skin cells. Skin cells are made of 70- 80% water. Thus if your skin cells are dehydrated, cells will be shriveled up like a raisin. No offense to the raisin but I would rather my cells be plump like a 🍇 grape! Dehydrated skin cells won't be plump leading to dull lackluster skin and making fine lines more visible. NO ONE WANTS THAT! Plus hydrated skin drinks in nourishment from treatments, serums, and moisturizers more easily because they are prepped to absorb.
Hydrated skin properly absorbs serums, moisturizers, and facial oils. Feel free to mist in between steps as well for added hydration or to refresh your skin throughout the day.
Skin moisturization is more about locking in that hydration/water content, protecting and nourishing the skin barrier, and reducing transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Moisturizers like oils, serums, & creams lock in hydration & keep skin glowy, smooth and soft. Don't we all want that soft glowy skin? I know I do.
