It’s understood that perfectly healthy and balanced skin needs no moisturizer. But until we reach that ultimate and most high state of skin perfection – bring it on! Many factors both extrinsic (environmental) and intrinsic (internal) affect the moisturization level of the skin. Ethnicity, hydration of the body, sun exposure, gender, and age are a few things that will determine if out skin appears dewy and fresh or dry and flaky. But no matter what the cause, a carefully chosen plant oil can help plump parched skin imparting a healthy glow.
How Do Oils Help Hydrate the Skin?
There are three major categories of ingredients that help keep skin moist: humectants, emollients and occlusives. Humectants, such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid, draw water into the skin from creams and the environment. Emollients help to soften skin while occlusives form a protective barrier on tissue to trap in moisture. Plant oils are emollients and occlusive and will help lock in hydration that is already in your skin or is introduced by your cream or lotion. Therefore, when layering products, it is important to apply humectants first and then apply oils on top to keep moisture from escaping.
