Oils And Skin Hydration
Contrary to popular belief, light plant oils are easily absorbed into skin. They do not leave greasy finish, while improving skin barrier functions. This helps the epidermis stay moist and your skin looks fresh and hydrated. Water loss is prevented while skin is nourished.
I fact, skin hydration products’ main function is to improve skin barrier and thus help it preserve water from evaporating. Products that are water based hydrate skin only temporarily and do not provide long term preservation of water balance. Products that are oil or wax based form a protective filter, which shields the epidermis durably. It also blocks external harms such as wind, sun and cold, which are also skin drying factors.
