Like you, your skin needs water. Of course, we don’t mean simply washing your face with water. Rather, we’re talking about using skincare products that contain hydrating ingredients to help balance the oil-water levels of your skin. To get the most out of these products, the key is to understand what hydration really is.
There’s a difference between dry and dehydrated skin
Simply put, dry skin lacks oil while dehydrated skin lacks water. To optimise your skin’s oil-water balance, use a hydrating product from the SOTHYS Hydra3HA range, which contains 1055 boletus extract, a potent ingredient that increases hydration levels. Three products (the creams and the mask) from the popular range have been reformulated and will be launched in June this year. The products now include coconut oil, a super moisturising ingredient.
Not all moisturisers are the same
As mentioned, there’s a difference between dry and dehydrated skin, so even oily and combination skin can get dehydrated. It’s important to choose a moisturiser that suits your skin type for best results, and that’s why SOTHYS Hydrating Cream comes in two formulae: one for dry and normal skin types (Hydrating Youth Cream, $168), and the other for oily and combination skin types (Hydrating Youth Comfort Cream, $168).
A common culprit of dehydrated skin
Find that your skin is still dehydrated despite using a lot of hydrating products? The culprit could be the dead skin cell buildup on your skin. This creates a barrier between your products and the deeper layers of your skin, so instead of allowing your skin to drink up the benefits of your product, the layer of dead skin cells causes the product to just sit on the layer. Exfoliate your skin regularly, then apply a sleeping mask like SOTHYS Hydra-smoothing Mask, $113, to ensure your skin has ample amount of hydration when you sleep.
Some ingredients are better than others
In the same way you’d use certain ingredients for acne-prone skin, some ingredients have been proven to increase hydration levels more effectively than others. Case in point? Hyaluronic acid (HA). This ingredient is actually naturally produced by our body, and works like a magnet to attract water. In fact, just 1g is said to have the moisturising benefits of 6L of water! Adding this to your skincare regime can help maintain your hydration levels. Want something even more potent? Try SOTHYS Intensive Hydrating Serum, $185, which is infused with 3HA, or triple Hyaluronic Acid, to restore hydration almost immediately for plumper-looking skin.
