One of the easiest ways to get glowing, healthy-looking skin is to make sure your skin is effectively moisturized. But doing so—and finding the right product to do this—is a little more complicated than it seems.
First, know that there is a difference between moisturizing and hydrating ingredients.
Hydrating ingredients literally add hydration—water—into the skin. Moisturizing ingredients, on the other hand, help keep that hydration in the skin by preventing trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), the process by which water evaporates from your skin.
Some products, like most moisturizers, usually contain a combination of moisturizing and hydrating skin-care ingredients, but that’s not always a given.
Hydrating serums, for instance, often just contain hydrating ingredients and require other products to seal the water they provide into your skin.
The right combination of hydrating and moisturizing ingredients for your skin will depend on your skin type and the concerns you’re trying to address.
Skin that tends to be dry will likely need both hydrating and moisturizing ingredients, whereas with oily skin, more occlusive moisturizing ingredients may cause breakouts.
