Your Thirsty Skin
Nothing ages skin faster than dry, thirsty skin. The good news is that it’s one of the easiest things to fix! When your skin looks and feels thirsty, chances are it just needs more moisture. Although it can be confusing to know whether or not your skin is in need of oil or water, an easy solution is to use moisturizing oils on your tired, thirsty skin, that also provide hydration. While there are products on the market that hydrate skin without using oils if you aren’t quite sure which one you need, a good bet is to use a hydrating oil on your skin.
One of the best hydrating oils used in our skin care is jojoba oil. This magical oil of the desert nourishes the skin by delivering essential fatty acids that absorb easily into your thirsty skin leaving it feeling moisturized and hydrated. Jojoba oil is unique because it has an adaptogenic effect on the skin. This means it helps the skin produce the correct amount of oil for its needs. When cellular membranes are properly lubricated, cellular water loss is minimal and your skin stays moisturized and hydrated. Amazing!
Another beneficial skin care product for thirsty skin is botanical hyaluronic acid. Unlike the other oil described above, hyaluronic acid is not a plant-based oil. This product provides an unbelievable amount of hydration by holding up to 1000x it’s weight in water when it absorbs into the skin. This makes it incredibly effective at preventing and replenishing cellular water loss. It also has the capabilities of pulling water into the skin, adjusting to however much hydration the skin needs. Hyaluronic acid is a favorite among private label cosmetics for this very reason; it’s extremely hydrating and leaves the skin looking soft, dewy and beautiful.
