Skin moisture content
In a normal healthy skin, the water content of the outermost layer of the skin (the skin moisture barrier, also known as the lipid barrier) should be around 25 - 35% 💦
Once the moisture content is below 10%, the skin will gradually become dry and tightened, resulting in the appearance of fine lines. Dead skin cells cannot be metabolized normally, and this is when the skin darkens and starts to look dull.
What our skin experts say
Therefore, the first priority to maintain your skin moisture is to not damage your skin's natural barrier, looking after your skin health and let the skin lipids perform their physiological functions. If the keratin, skin lipids, and sebum membranes are not well taken care of, dead skin cells (the cells that make up dry skin) can build up and cause skin to be unresponsive to your skin treatments or products.
How to hydrate your skin
A healthy and strong skin barrier can help retain water more effectively. However, it is also important to note that age and lifestyle habits can affect your skin health and it is therefore incredibly important to not only moisturize your skin from the inside out but outside in as well! We provide some quick tips on how to get the inside out fix to a well hydrated skin.
