Now, may be a lot of question arises in your mind. That which one is better? Why it is important to keep skin moisturized and hydrated? What are the benefits of using them? How to moisturize and hydrate your face skin?
Don’t worry! Here you will get answers for your each question. First let’s understand Moisturizer and Hydrator.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MOISTURIZER AND HYDRATOR
Moisturizer and hydrator both make sure that your skin is getting all the oil and water it needs to fight against dryness and dehydration. However, the difference lies in way of performing these functions.
“In simple words you can say that hydrator equals to water and moisturizer equals to oil.”
Hydrator (Hydrating products) helps to bring water to the skin. It mainly refers to the water content within cells. In addition, it collect moisture from the environment and bind it to the skin cells. This helps to absorb water in the skin cells.
On the other hand, moisturizers help to build skin protective barrier. All skin have a natural lipid (oil) barrier, which prevent water loss and moisture. So, moisturizers contains oil or such ingredients that helps to lock hydration by forming protective layer and make your skin looks smooth and soft.
HOW TO KNOW WHAT YOUR SKIN NEEDS? MOISTURIZER, HYDRATOR OR BOTH?
To understand the need of your skin, you must look at first whether your skin is dehydrated or dry. However, in some cases it can be both.
If your skin is dehydrated, it means it lacks water. “Dehydration describes the state of your skin, it lacks water and this can be seen as rough, tight or peeling skin. In addition, it can also result in sensitivity and redness if dehydration is severe”, says David Lortscher certified-dermatologist. Dehydrated skin is caused by many external factors like not drinking water, your diet, caffeine consumption and the climate change.
On the other hand, dry skin describes your skin type: it produces very little oil (sebum). It’s possible to not produce much oil, yet have normal levels of hydration and moisture in the skin”, says David Lortscher certified-dermatologist.
After analyzing your skin condition, you will get to know the needs of your skin. Now you can treat your skin properly.
