Hydration 101: Ingredient Focus

Find the perfect moisturizer or hydration products to keep your skin hydrated. Here are some of the top products that every moisture-starved skin type deserves during these winter months!

Why Hydration is Important

When skin ishas good hydration levels, it is more plump and resilient. This is due, at least in part, to an ingredient in the skin called hyaluronic acid. The job of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to hold water. Aka: to uphold hydration levels.

When there is adequate water from inside and out, the skin looks healthier and more vibrant and is less prone to wrinkles when hydration is at it’s best. It is important to drink lots of fluids throughout the day for the best results. You’ve probably heard that drinking six to eight glasses of water a day is a good idea, but you may need more or less depending on your activity level. Coffee and sodas do not count as water because they contain caffeine which is a diuretic, meaning that they draw water out of your system and your skin.

In regards to skincare, hydration-based products such as moisturizers, serums, ampoules, or mists packed with hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, aloe, or other botanical or chemical supplements are a must to maintain that dewy, glowing complexion.
