Skin Anti-Aging Tips: Do You Starve Your Skin from Hydration or Moisturization?


Hello Friends,

You may be trying your best to achieve a more radiant and youthful looking skin by using anti-aging moisturizers, sun spot and age spot fade away, age-defying hydrating serums, and toners… However, are you sure you do your best about your skin hydration and moisturization?

Did you know that two of the most misunderstood words in skincare are: Skin Hydration versus Moisturization.

Hydrating means that your skin is provided with water or hygroscopic skincare ingredients (ingredients that are “friends” of water) so that skin looks plump, nice and smooth. However, if skin is left dehydrated, then it looks dry, dull and can lead to premature skin aging. Couple of the fastest hydrating skincare ingredients that you often find in hydrating serums are Hyaluronic Acid and special sea algae extracts, which retain large amounts of water and make skin look plump, soft and nice. In addition to using hydrating age-defying skincare products, you should daily drink plenty of water and also eat fruit and veggies that hold plenty of water so that you can support your body’s and skin’s internal functions.

Question: Is Skin Hydration Everything? The answer is No. It does not help much our skin if we keep hydrating it efficiently with various serums and toners but we do not go the extra step to also moisturize it with suitable skincare products. You may ask why? Because what skin hydration cannot achieve, it is readily achieved by Skin Moisturization!  In few words, moisturizing is about trapping and sealing in moisture into your skin to build the skin’s protective barrier, prevent water loss and keep the skin soft, smooth and nice. Use a high quality, anti-aging moisturizing cream that contains potent, safer and cleaner ingredients and apply it after you apply your hydrating serum. In this way, hydration provided by the hydrating serum is effectively trapped and sealed in your skin by your effective moisturizer.  

In few words, to avoid starving your skin from both hydration and moisturization, you need to apply both a suitable, high quality hydrating serum and afterwards finish by applying a high quality moisturizing cream.  In this way, you can achieve the best results for having a radiant, plump, smooth and more youthful skin!
