Moisturizing and hydrating– they both sound like the same thing don’t they? Even skincare experts sometimes fail to distinguish between these terms. After all, both of them come under the umbrella of products that keep our skin from feeling dehydrated or dry. However, this doesn’t mean that they are not important on their own. It might come as a surprise to you but for your skin to remain healthy, you need to moisturize it as well as hydrate it.
While it is true that both of these products have similar functions, they are not the same! The purpose of a moisturizer is to lock in the moisture already present in your skin to keep it hydrated. On the other hand, a hydrator absorbs more moisture from the atmosphere and infuses them into your skin cells to make them appear more refreshed and plump. Since both of these products serve different purposes, making sure that you select the right ones can make or break your skincare regimen.
Two more new skincare products to worry about, right? Well, it doesn’t have to be so. What if we told you there was a magical serum that both hydrates and moisturizes your skin at the same time? It is true– with Unsweetened Beauty’s Royal Flush Face Boost, you don’t need to add any more steps to your daily skincare routine. Since the Royal Flush Face Boost serum moisturizes and hydrates in just one application, you get the best of both worlds. Before going any further on choosing the right product, let’s completely understand what moisturization and hydration mean.
Moisturizer Vs Hydrator
There are many hydrators and moisturizers available in the market today. However, people often tend to choose only moisturizers as they believe both these products serve the same function. But we now know that this is not true.
Hydrators not only increase the water content in your skin but also absorb moisture from the atmosphere, infusing it into your skin cells. Glycerin, aloe vera, honey, and hyaluronic acid are some examples of hydrators. On the contrary, a moisturizer forms a waxy, soothing, and often water-proof layer over the skin to keep the moisture already present in the cells intact.
Dehydrated skin appears dry and dull, with fine lines and wrinkles. It feels tight and stretched, patchy, and itchy. Potent serums and targeted ampoules containing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid are an excellent addition to your routine for addressing dehydration at the root cause. In short, you need a hydrator.
If your skin feels dry and dehydrated, you might need a hydrator. If your skin feels normal but lacks freshness and plumpness, then you need a moisturizer. While all skin types may not need a hydrator, a moisturizer is necessary to keep your skin’s water content stable. The best option is to always use them both so that your skin remains hydrated inside and out. Whatever your needs might be, when choosing your ideal products, you need to ensure that they are color-free, hypoallergenic, non-sensitizing, and dermatologically tested.
