The secret to optimal skin hydration starts with understanding the difference between hydrators and moisturizers – and why you need both.
Hydrators have the ability to attract and retain water molecules, infusing them inside the skin for below-the-surface hydration. This makes skin appear plump, smooth, and more youthful.
Moisturizers play a vital role in sealing in the hydration provided by hydrators. They create an occlusive barrier on the skin's surface to help prevent water loss and keep the skin moisturized for longer periods.
