Did you know that hydration and moisture are not the same thing 👀Let’s unpack that. Hydration is defined as causing something to absorb water. As such, dehydration occurs when something loses more water than it retains.
Moisture as defined by the Cambridge dictionary is ‘a liquid such as water in a substance or on a surface’. Some moisturizers are occlusives, emollients and protein rejuvenators and some humectants are also moisturizing. Water evaporates from the skin rather quickly therefore, moisturizers are oil based and this causes water to be sealed into the skin and prevents the skin from drying out.
