Is moisturizing and moisturizing the same?
Moisturizing and moisturizing are two concepts. Moisturizing only replenishes the moisture of the stratum corneum. It is temporary. The main component of hydrating products is only water. Moisturizing ingredients include glycerin, hyaluronic acid, various amino acids, etc., which lock the moisture on the face. Moisturizing is more important than hydrating.
Why does the skin need to be hydrated?
When the skin's surface layer, namely the stratum corneum, has a moisture content of 20-25% and sufficient water content, the skin will not only be soft and smooth without fine lines but also full of elasticity in the hand.
However, with age and poor lifestyles, the stratum corneum gradually loses moisture. When the content is less than 10%, the skin will appear dry, with fine lines, tightness, roughness, and scaling.
Although the surface layer of the skin cannot obtain water directly from the inside of the body, there is a constant flow of water in the bottom dermis of the skin. Therefore, skin hydration is to replenish moisture in the dermis from the source.
Dermal hydration is the first element of skin beautification. Whitening, oil control, anti-wrinkle, anti-aging, etc. must be carried out on this basis?
What is the secret of keeping moisture in?
Use toner and lotion together. Toner with a moisturizing effect will quickly evaporate when applied to the face. Only by using lotion on top of the toner can the moisture be sealed in the skin.
