As you know, there are skin types and skin conditions. When we talk about normal skin, dry skin, combination skin and oily skin, we are talking about skin type, for example. When we talk about mature skin, dehydrated skin or dull and tired skin, we are talking about skin condition. The two are indeed different, but they can work together! That is to say, you can have normal, dehydrated skin or dry, mature skin. In recent years, more and more people have problems with dehydrated skin. How can you tell if your skin is dehydrated? It's simple, if it feels uncomfortable, tight and you notice diffuse redness on your face, your skin lacks moisture! In this new article, we explain how to moisturize your skin with natural products and how to avoid skin dehydration!
Why you should moisturize your skin
Moisturizing your skin is an essential beauty step, no matter what type of skin you have! Beyond giving you comfortable skin and a pretty complexion, proper skin hydration is essential to maintaining the skin barrier. The skin barrier is found on the surface of the skin, on the epidermis, and is composed of fatty acids and a hydrolipidic film. Its role is to protect the skin from external aggressions (pollution, dust, sun, stress, etc.) and to keep the skin hydrated by protecting it from drying out. Problem: every day, the skin naturally loses water (hydration) and if the reserves are not filled, the protective barrier is the first to be impacted. Skin problems follow: tightness, small pimples, dehydration wrinkles, dull complexion... The skin is suffering. To prevent this from happening, it is advisable to deeply moisturize the skin with creams and serums formulated with natural ingredients. Why natural ingredients? Because they are more compatible with the structure of the skin, penetrate better and offer real care, unlike more conventional care.
How should you moisturize your skin?
To moisturize your skin properly, you have to take your skin type into account! Indeed, different skin types do not need the same active ingredients to maintain their hydration.
Hydrating your dry skin
Dry skin is skin that lacks hydration (water) and nutrition (fatty acids). To offer them a customized care, which will not attack them, you must therefore bet on products for dry skin. To cleanse your skin, choose a gentle cleanser such as a milk or jelly, and to moisturize it, a moisturizing and nourishing cream. The moisturizing side will provide water, and strengthen the hydrolipidic film, the nourishing side will provide fatty acids, and strengthen the protective barrier. Winning combo!
Hydrating combination skin
Combination skin is oily skin on the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and normal, even dry, on the rest of the face. The difficulty with this skin type is that you need to both moisturize the skin and regulate sebum production. The idea here is to start with a purifying facial cleanser and a matifying and balancing moisturizer. The targeted active ingredients could be essential oils or special plant oils for combination skin!
Hydrating Oily Skin
Oily skin is skin that is prone to excess sebum. This type of skin needs to be purified, moisturized and rebalanced at the same time. When it comes to cleansing products, gentle purifying cleansing gels are perfect. They will cleanse the skin thoroughly and, thanks to purifying active ingredients, help it to rebalance. As for moisturizing care, mattifying fluids are perfect! Their texture is very well assimilated by oily skin, they rebalance the production of sebum and limit the faceted ball appearance at the end of the day!
What natural product to moisturize your skin
Natural products are the best on the market to ensure perfect skin hydration. More assimilable thanks to their composition, they use natural ingredients, healthier and more effective!
We can't say it enough: hydration comes as much from the products applied to the skin as from the water you drink! So every day, make sure you drink at least 1.5L of water. Moreover, water allows the body to function well. Thanks to it, we digest better, we have more energy and our skin is glowing with health!
