The Science Behind Hydrated Skin: How Moisture Impacts Your Complexion

The Science Behind Hydrated Skin: How Moisture Impacts Your Complexion

Did you know your skin's outer layer has protected you since day one? It shields you from environmental changes like low humidity and harsh weather conditions.

It all boils down to science, which means that the key to achieving a radiant complexion is in your skin's ability to retain moisture.

Seasonal change is an inevitable cycle of life. Whenever hot weather or winters arrive, it leaves your skin dehydrated. Many factors can hinder your body's ability to maintain proper hydration. Dehydrated skin occurs when the body loses more water than it takes in. Not drinking enough water or sweating too much are common causes of dehydration.

It is essential to use hydrating skincare products regularly to prevent dehydration. The lymphatic system is responsible for fluid balance and prioritises cells' hydration at the expense of less critical ones. It compromises overall body efficiency, highlighting the importance of following a skincare regime for sustained well-being. Skin hydration upholds the skin's protective function, preventing tearing and reducing the risk of infection.

Diving into the difference between Surface and Deep Skin Hydration

Were you aware that skin hydration comes in two forms? Don't worry! It's never too late to delve into the proper skincare routine for your skin. It is essential to know the significance of surface and deep hydration for achieving a well-rounded approach to skincare.

Surface Skin Hydration

Surface skin hydration focuses on the outermost layer of the skin, known as the epidermis. Moisturisers and hydrating products primarily impact this layer and address skin concerns like dryness, flakiness and roughness. While the effects may be immediate and temporary, surface skin hydration is essential to enhance the texture and appearance of the skin's top layer.

Deep Skin Hydration

Deep skin hydration reaches the deeper layers of the skin, targeting the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. It goes beyond the surface to provide long-lasting support. In this process, hydrating agents with smaller molecular structures penetrate deeply into the skin, effectively locking in moisture.

Deep hydration is crucial for offering sustained support to collagen and elastin. It improves skin elasticity, firmness and overall skin health. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid and niacinamide play a vital role in plumping the skin and aiding in skin renewal for enduring benefits.

Understanding Moisture and Skin Complexion

Moisture enhances skin complexion by improving skin texture and promoting a healthy appearance. It softens the dry areas to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. Our skincare products effectively moisturise the skin and improve its complexion. Here are some of its hydrating products:

They create a protective layer that helps to prevent water loss from the skin, maintaining its natural hydration.

It is referred to as skin brightening night cream as it renews and revitalizes skin by shedding dead skin cells and generating new ones.
