2 Truths 1 Myth: How Hydrated Is Your Skin, Really?

Up to 60% of the human adult body is water and yet as we get deeper and deeper into winter many of us (especially those living in overheated urban apartment buildings) find our skin feeling more Mojave Desert than Bay of Bengal.

Truth # 1: Dehydration can affect the texture and radiance of your skin.

True! A lot of people don’t realize this, but skin's water content is the key to smooth skin. It’s important to properly rehydrate and replenish your skin’s water content for a smooth and supple appearance. Dehydrated skin looks unhealthy and dull– while also weakening your skin functioning and barrier! Our Water-Lock Moisturizer is specifically designed to focus on hydrating the last, most dehydrated layer of your skin to get your skin super smooth and glowy.

Truth #2: Even oily skin types need a moisturizer.

Sometimes clients with oily skin feel they don’t need a moisturizer, but the fact is that oil on the skin does not equal hydration. Every skin type needs hydration to hold water in the skin and keep it looking and feeling healthy. I recommend our Hyaluronic Gel Moisturizer for oily skin types. It drenches the skin in intense but ultra-lightweight hydration that doesn’t feel greasy or heavy.

Myth: If you are using a serum, you don’t need to use a moisturizer after.

False! Even if your serum feels super hydrating, serums and moisturizers have different functions. Moisturizers focus on hydration while serums are one of your most important anti-aging steps. Moisturizers address the immediate hydration  needs of your skin, while serums really show in cumulative results, so you can switch up your moisturizer from day to day, but make sure you are staying consistent with your serum.
