Moisturizing and hydrating is a key aspect of any skincare routine. What is the difference between hydrating and moisturizing? Hydrators bind water to the skin and every type of skin needs it! Serums with Hyaluronic acid are perfect hydrators. Moisturizers lock in moisture, reducing water loss and enhancing skin’s barrier function. Plant oils, shea butter, and phospholipids are examples of great moisturizers. Using products that contain both hydrating and moisturizing ingredients and lack emulsifiers is very beneficial for the skin!
