summary of the article

What is the difference between nourishing your skin and hydrating your skin?

Hydrating your skin means providing it with water. When it lacks hydration, the skin is prone to redness and suffers from external aggressions.

 

Nourishing your skin means providing it with lipids. The latter participate in the structure of cells and cell renewal. They are essential for the formation of the skin's protective barrier and the production of sebum. But that's not all: they also help retain hydration, and make the skin more supple and elastic.

 

Nourishing your skin helps prevent skin dryness. Indeed, when your skin is hungry, it feels tight, it tingles, and the discomfort is daily: it lacks lipids. The skin then becomes more porous: it is weakened.

The importance of hydrating and then nourishing your skin

Often, cosmetic treatments hydrate your skin, and the nutrition phase is left in the background. However, to take care of yourself, in addition to providing moisturizing care for your skin, you will need to ensure that you provide it with nourishing care!

 

To achieve this, you can turn to:

  • nourishing creams rich in lipids;
  • So-called emollient agents, such as oils. In fact, the intake of fatty substances helps seal the water molecules that the skin has just absorbed over time.

What oils to nourish your skin?

The best facial oils for combination and oily skin

  • Hazelnut vegetable oil: it is a balancing, softening and restorative oil. It is non-comedogenic and offers a penetrating, non-greasy feel, which repairs oily and acne-prone skin ;
  • jojoba vegetable oil: it is nourishing, calming and regulates sebum secretions. It penetrates without leaving a greasy film on the surface.

The best facial oils for dry skin

  • Sweet almond vegetable oil: it is a soothing, softening and nourishing oil, ideal for fragile and dry skin . It is very pleasant to apply and leaves a velvety and soft appearance on the skin;
  • Argan oil: it is ultra-nourishing, and ideal for mature or dry skin . It is an oil rich in antioxidants, which helps maintain skin hydration and fights against the effects of time.

The best facial oils for sensitive skin

  • avocado vegetable oil: it is obtained from avocado pulp, and is very nourishing, protective, and restructuring;
  • Borage oil: it is ideal for delicate or atopic- prone skin. It relieves tightness and soothes dry skin, making it supple and comfortable.

Ingredients to look for in your nourishing cosmetic treatments

Niacinamide

Niacinamide is a vitamin widely used in cosmetics . This is vitamin B3 . It has the effect of increasing the level of collagen, fatty acids and ceramide in the epidermis. As a result, it effectively protects your skin from free radicals.

Allantoin

Allantoin is a mixture of urea and glyoxylic acid. Urea is ideal for dry skin in cosmetics because it has moisturizing and emollient power , which leaves a nourishing film on the skin.

 

Allantoin is one of the active ingredients in Comfrey. In cosmetics, it is sometimes obtained from snail slime. It is also found in sugar beets, aloe vera and even chamomile.

Vegetable glycerin

Glycerin is emollient. It is known for its soft touch and its moisturizing properties. This is the reason why it is found in many cosmetic recipes. It provides immediate comfort to the skin, which is soothed and no longer feels tight.

Shea butter

Shea butter is a vegetable fat rich in essential vitamins which has remarkable nourishing effects. It soothes the skin, limits moisture loss and gives it elasticity and softness.

 

Thevitamin E present in shea butter protects your skin, and vitamin A helps it regenerate. The essential fatty acids of vitamin F, meanwhile, help you fight acne and promote skin renewal.
