What’s all this talk about moisture anyway? Walking down the beauty aisle, reading product labels, one would be bombarded with promises of products that add extra moisture to your skin. But what is moisture and why do we need moisture?
The primary function of a moisturiser is to hydrate the skin by increasing the water content thereby making the skin look youthful, smooth, supple and improving the tone and texture. Drinking lots of water helps to flush out the toxins from the body and moisturise the body form within. Moisture plumps up the cells keeping them youthful, juicy and succulent…without moisture, your skin will be dry, cracked, wrinkled and dull.
Humectants – attract water to the skin from the environment e.g. glycerin
Occlusives – these increase the water content of the skin and prevent evaporation e.g. Shea Butter
Emollients – lubricants that remain on the outer skin to trap moisture in the skin making it smooth and soft e.g. Jojoba Oil
Beauty Tip of the Day:
For an extra dose of moisture, add 3 tablespoons of coconut oil to your warm bathing water and apply moisturiser to damp skin.
For smooth and supple skin instantly, try the Luminous Exfoliating Bar aka Garri Scrub…your life will never be the same.
