The first ingredient in almost any cream or lotion, water makes up between 50%-80% of most of our formulas. The human body is made up of 50%-70% water, which all of our organs require in order to function, including the skin. When the skin is dehydrated, it feels tight and uncomfortable. It might also feel itchy, flakey, or irritated. Dehydration can happen to any skin type, and it won’t have an impact on the amount of oil the skin produces. When our skin is hydrated, on the other hand, it is stronger, smoother, and more supple. It acts as a better barrier against bacteria, so it is very important that acne-prone skin be well hydrated.
The skin is our body’s first line of defence, but it is also the last organ to receive the nutrients we consume. This means that our skin loses water quickly, yet it is the last to receive the water that we drink. Applying lotions and creams loaded with water is the best way to hydrate the skin.
Water on its own does not penetrate the skin easily, which is why it must be blended with other ingredients. By mixing humectants, which absorb water and allow it to penetrate, and carrier oils, which prevent the water from evaporating once it has been absorbed, into our creams and lotions, we can make sure your skin is optimally hydrated.
