You hear it all the time. We say it all the time. Keep your skin hydrated! It’s so important to keep your skin hydrated all the time, especially during the extreme months of summer and winter. In this blog, we’re going to talk about the difference between hydrating and moisturizing, how to keep your skin hydrated and ways to ‘eat your water’.
Hydrating vs Moisturizing
According to Beautiful with Brains the difference between hydration and moisturizing is, “Hydrating is all about infusing skin with moisture. Moisturizing is about locking that moisture behind bars and making it stay there”. Meaning your moisturizer is just as important as your hydrator.
If you’re searching for hydrating skin care products, look for humectants. Humectants describe ingredients that can attract moisture from the environment into the skin. Talk about your skin care working for you!
