The importance of hydrating your skin is vital for keeping it soft, supple & youthful. Regular moisturizing protects your skin and supports the skin functioning for younger, blemish-free & healthier looking skin.
Read further to better understand the skin moisturizing importance and why it’s important to hydrate your skin while dermarolling.
What happens with dehydrated skin?
Lack of water in or around skin cells disrupts normal metabolism and tissue repair. This means that your dehydrated skin renewal & repair slows down, making your skin look older & less attractive.
Dry skin itself is not the major cause of wrinkles & other signs of skin aging, but dry skin is more vulnerable to sun damage and environmental damage.
Moisturizing helps to slow down any external skin damage, and allow skin care products to work better.
Dry skin is also more prone to skin infections & irritants, because lack of hydration causes tiny cracks on the skin. When cracks occur, the usual bacteria that live on our skin can get inside and cause an infection.
By protecting our skin from drying out, we protect ourselves from infections.
How skin moisturizing benefits your skin?
Moisturizing Helps Skin to Renew Itself
Our skin goes through a continuous process of shedding dead skin cells. This allows the younger skin cells to rise to the surface. Keeping the skin renewal active is vital for youthful skin & skin damage repairing (what we normally wish to achieve while dermarolling).
This kind of skin renewal process gets disturbed when the water level in skin becomes too low and the synthesis of new skin cells slows down because of the dehydration.
Applying the moisturizer improves the circulation in skin
By applying the moisturizer we slightly massage the skin. This increases the blood circulation & gently helps to exfoliate the dead skin cells.
Regular moisturizing prevents aging
Increased circulation stimulates the production of collagen & elastin in skin. These skin proteins are critical for maintaining youthful appearance of your skin. As we age the amount of collagen & elastin in our skin decreases and wrinkles & loss of elasticity starts to develop.
Skin sagging & fine lines start to appear where is lack of collagen & elastin in skin – by moisturizing our skin daily we prevent these signs of aging from occurring.
Moisturizing rejuvenates skin in conjunction with dermarolling
By dermarolling the skin we trigger the natural process of skin renewal to accelerate the production of collagen & elastin in our skin. As already explained above, then the synthesis of collagen & elastin needs proper hydration of the skin.
What moisturizer is the best for your skin?
There are actually two types of moisturizers
Moisturizers that soften & smooth your skin surface & protect it from water loss by creating a thin layer on the skin. These moisturizers prevent water that is already present on the skin from evaporating (like vaseline).
Moisturizers that absorb deeper to skin and bind moisture to increase the water level in skin.
One of the moisturizers that absorb to the dermal layer of your skin is Hyaluronic Acid (HA). In case you didn’t know, the skin’s dermis layer is made up of about 70% water and claims nearly 50% of your body’s total HA allotment.
Hyaluronic Acid helps to support and hydrate the skin, resulting in a healthy and attractive appearance.
Our hyaluronic acid serum is made of medium molecular sodium hyaluronate (a form of HA). It has a smaller molecular size as HA (making it especially penetrative), and is able to hold more water than any other natural substance—up to 1,000 times its weight in water!
Sodium Hyaluronate increases your skin hydration from within & supports the skin regeneration for youthful, healthy & smooth appearance. It also reduces any sort of trans-epidermal water loss.
