Did you know that there is a difference between hydrating and nourishing your skin?

In this article, we'll discuss the importance of both hydration and nutrition for proper skin care along with some popular methods of achieving them. Whether you consider yourself a skin care expert or are just getting started on your journey toward healthier skin, this guide has something new to offer everyone!
WHAT IS SKIN HYDRATION?
The skin’s different barrier functions include its water barrier function, which is responsible for keeping the skin hydrated. To keep water inside it, the skin has a number of systems starting on the surface of the epidermis and as deep down as the dermis: the hydrolipidic film, NMF (natural moisturizing factors), tight junctions, as well as proteoglycans and hyaluronic acid.
HOW TO RECOGNIZE DEHYDRATED SKIN?
Dehydrated skin results in a dull complexion, slight feelings of tightness, or the appearance of fine dehydration lines.
HOW DO YOU HYDRATE YOUR SKIN?
If you have dehydrated skin, applying hydrating skincare will help to provide the active ingredients that can hold water in the skin’s layers. The FILORGA solution: the HYDRA skincare collection combines several types of hyaluronic acid to hydrate deep down, restore a glowing complexion and plump the skin.
WHAT IS SKIN NUTRITION?
The skin is nourished by lipids that form an intercellular cement between the skin cells. This lipid cement helps to maintain cohesion between cells and build an impermeable barrier for the skin.
HOW TO RECOGNIZE SKIN THAT IS LACKING NUTRITION?
Skin that needs nourishing is dry, it feels uncomfortable during the day, it has flaking, rough areas, and it also lacks suppleness.
HOW DO YOU NOURISH YOUR SKIN?
Nourishing skin care provides the skin with lipids and strengthens the skin barrier to prevent dehydration and dryness. The FILORGA solution: GLOBAL-REPAIR, the collection of anti-aging and nutritious skincare with ultra-nourishing textures and no greasy residue thanks to a combination of plant oils: evening primrose, jojoba, borage, and camellia.
