Do You Know the Difference? Hydrators verses Moisturizers

Both hydrators and moisturizers address the importance of optimizing the skin’s moisture level to combat dehydrated and dry skin, however, these are 2 different types of products formulated to serve a different purpose.

Dehydrated skin lacks water and needs to be hydrated.
Hydrating agents include:
 Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera,
Honey, Alpha hydroxyl acid, Glycerin, Seaweed.

Dry skin lacks oil and needs be moisturized.
Mosturizing agents include:
 vegetable oils, butters, ceramides, silicones,
fatty alcohols, petroleum jelly, mineral oils, beeswax, olive oil,
silicones, lanolin, and zinc oxide. 

In a nutshell, hydrators bind water into the skin while moisturizers
prevent that water from leaving the skin, that’s why it’s important to
apply your hydrating products first. 

Incorporate a hydrator into your daily routine!  Not only will it enhance the appearance of your skin but it will also increase the power of your moisturizer.  This winning combo creates a healthy balance for dehydrated and dehydrated-dry skin.
