The Importance of Moisturising - Moisturising vs Hydration

Moisturising is one of the most important steps in your skincare routine, arguably only behind cleansing itself! Daily moisturising leads to healthy, glowing skin that maintains a youthful appearance. 


What’s the difference between moisturising and hydrating my skin? 

Products that focus on moisturisation will often target differently than those focused on hydration. On the one hand, hydration targets beneath the skin barrier, infusing water into our cells. On the other hand, moisturisation works to seal the water inside by targeting the skin barrier itself. Although they work differently to seal in nourishment, they can work in tandem with each other.

What does moisturising do for my skin? 

Your moisturiser acts as a seal on your skin’s surface to prevent water from escaping. Water can quickly evaporate from your skin, along with your natural oils. This easy loss is why it’s important to use a moisturiser after cleansing the skin. Skipping this step leaves your skin much more vulnerable to both dehydration and oiliness, and the problems that come with it. 

Our face sheds skin cells much faster than other areas of our body. By moisturising daily, you provide your skin with a nourishing repair, and encourage a new generation of young healthy cells to rise. Your skin is left feeling smooth and looking radiant. 

Don’t forget to spread this step of your skincare to your neck and décolletage area. Our Day Moisturiser is designed for use on both face and neck. Infused with high content ingredients, not only does Day provide your skin with intense nourishment, but this moisturiser also works to reduce the appearance fine lines and dark spots.
