Hydrated skin = Healthy skin

Hydrated skin = Healthy skin

At Skinsmiths when we think of having totally hydrated skin we think: Water and lipid based hydration.

Moisture is an essential element of a healthy skin barrier function.
When your skin barrier is compromised, trans-epidermal water loss results in skin that looks dull and dehydrated.

A compromised skin barrier also makes skin vulnerable to environmental damage and irritation. It’s important to keep your skin hydrated no matter your skin type – even the oiliest skin can be dehydrated. 

Water-based hydration:
Water-based hydration helps draw water into the skin to hydrate within. Hyaluronic acid, Sodium Hyaluronate and Betaine are ingredients to look out for when wanting to boost your water hydration. Our Ultimate Renewal Serum and Complete Recovery Moisturiser feature these key hydrating ingredients.

You will want to layer your water-based hydration products before your lipid-based hydration products. For optimum functionality, these products would be formulated in a water-based product just like our water-based serums.

Because everyone needs hydration, all our Skinsmiths serums contain sodium hyaluronate! No need to go searching for a hyaluronic acid serum to boost hydration – we have your hydration needs covered while helping to correct your skin concerns. 

Lipid-based hydration:
Lipid-based hydration helps to seal in moisture and prevent trans-epidermal water loss. Ceramides, Squalane, Shea Butter and plant-based (Avocado & Hemp) oils are ingredients to look out for to restore your skin’s natural lipid content. Skinsmiths Gentle Cream Cleanser covers the Avocado and Hemp bases and our Rebalancing Moisturiser ticks the Squalane box too!
