4 Hydrating Ingredients to Look For In Your Moisturizer

 

One of the easiest ways to keep dry skin at bay is to moisturize with a lotion, cream, butter, balm, etc.  However, not all moisturizers are created equally.  The trick to really moisturize your skin is to look at the back of the product where the ingredients are.

Don't know which ingredients to look for? Here are the best moisturizing ingredients you should always look for in your skin care products to fight dry skin:

 

 

Hyaluronic Acid

You've probably heard this ingredient thrown around in the beauty world and is known to hold 1000x its weight in water.  Amazing right?  It's a potent humectant that acts like a sponge to pull water in and plump up your complexion.

Although hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our bodies, as we age, production starts to slow down so it's important to use products with this ingredient to combat signs of aging skin.

Ceramides

For an immediate glow or to relieve dry skin, use products with ceramide.  These are fats naturally found in the skin and maintains and reinforces your skin's natural barrier.  Using products with ceramides helps seal in water so your skin cells don't dry out.

Glycerin

This moisturizing ingredient attracts moisture from the atmosphere and locks moisture on your skin's surface.  Glycerin is commonly used in a lot of products, so you'll be able to find it easily.

Essential Oils

Essential oils are naturally found in nature and some of our faves include coconut, argan, macadamia, kukui nut, jojoba, rosehip oil, etc.  These essential fatty acids absorb quickly and provide moisture and soothing effects on your skin.  You can either use these oils on its own or mixed in with your fave moisturizer
