The Importance of Water: Moisturising Your Skin"

Were you aware that more than half - around 60% of the human body consists of water? Water is a crucial element of the skin, which, as the largest organ in the body, holds about 64% of water.

Dry skin that is lacking in moisture can appear dry, tight, itchy, and flaky. It may also feel rough, lack visible radiance, and lose its soft, flexible, and toned texture, potentially leading to cracks that increase the risk of infections. Dehydrated skin may also show early signs of visible wrinkles.

Studies indicate that 40-72% of consumers experience dry skin, which can result from inadequate water consumption or excessive water loss. While drinking water is crucial for skin health, it alone may not be adequate to address skin dehydration. Experts in aesthetic medicine advise applying moisturizer regularly to combat skin dehydration.

The Importance Of Moisturising Your Skin

What is the best way to choose the most suitable moisturizer for your skin?

Are you familiar with the process of choosing skin care products that contain the appropriate ingredients tailored to your skin type in order to achieve a healthy and youthful appearance?

With a wide variety of facial moisturizers available, including ointments, creams, sprays, and lotions, how do you choose the right one for your skin? Factors such as skin tone, texture, type, sensitivity, and whether you have lighter or darker skin all play a role in determining the best product for you. Consider these factors carefully to make the best selection for your needs.

It's essential to note that selecting a quality moisturizer is crucial regardless of your skin type. For dry skin, consider using an ointment to retain moisture. Creams, on the other hand, are thinner but offer good hydration and are suitable for normal skin. In the case of oily or acne-prone skin, opt for lighter lotions with water as the primary ingredient.

Professor Dr. Pretidev Ramdawon, MD, PhD, PhD, DMSc, who serves as our esteemed medical consultant at VIP Laser Clinic Med Spa and is a Diplomate of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine, recommends the utilization of a 100% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer. This facial moisturizer is non-comedogenic, promoting pore breathability and aiding in the prevention of oily skin.

Utilizing a quality moisturizer offers numerous advantages, as consistent hydration not only enhances skin radiance but also promotes rapid self-repair through the turnover of fresh cells. A recent publication in the British Journal of Dermatology revealed that individuals who maintain a regular moisturizing routine exhibit fewer wrinkles compared to those with dry skin. It is equally imperative for men to incorporate moisturization into their skincare regimen, as a separate study indicated that males are predisposed to displaying premature signs of aging in comparison to females.
