Why moisturizing is a game-changer ? 

For a bright, firm skin, moisturizing is essential when combined with the right skincare routine featuring  top-notch active ingredients.

 

Did you know that your skin is prone to dehydration in both winter and  summer?

To ensure suppleness, comfort, a robust defense against external aggression, and proper cell renewal, the epidermis definitely needs water to function well. However, what we drink throughout the day isn’t always enough to maintain the right quantity of water in our cells, especially in winter when we feel less thirsty, and cold weather accelerates insensible water loss and dehydration.

 

What contributes to dehydration?

A range of factors can cause or exacerbate skin dehydration:

  • environmental factors, such as cold air, winter weather, wind, pollution, and UV rays
  • external factors, including  tobacco or alcohol consumption
  • emotional factors like stress or fatigue
  • certain medications or anti-acne treatments
  • cosmetics that are too aggressive, detergent, stripping, and drying products


How to recognize the signs of dehydrated skin?

Fine lines, tightness, dull complexion , redness, and flakiness are all signs of dehydrated skin. Contrary  to common belief, this can affect all skin types, including combination or oily skin. With age, the production of natural hyaluronic acid decreases , causing the skin to become thinner and more fragile, contributing further to the dehydration process. 

What's a good habit? Regularly drink water or herbal teas, of course, but also apply a good moisturizing cream daily. Its role is essential: for the skin to be properly hydrated, it needs to be supplied with water, which is retained by agents such as glycerine or plant oils rich in essential fatty acids and ceramides. These lipids act as a watertight barrier, strengthening the hydrolipidic film to minimize insensible water loss.

 

What's the difference with dry skin? Dry skin lacks essential fatty acids and ceramides. Yet these are the lipids that cement cells together,  preventing the epidermis from becoming porous and allowing water to evaporate . The result: a lack of comfort and a rougher, more irregular surface. The key is to nourish the skin with rich, creamy skincare products filled with plant oils.

And if you're still wondering: yes, you can have both dry and dehydrated skin at the same time. In fact, it happens quite often.

 

How to choose the right moisturizers?

Composition is key. Your moisturizing routine must contain hyaluronic acid, a natural molecule that can retain up to a thousand times its weight in water, along with lipids to nourish the epidermis. This is why marocMaroc has opted for a precious ingredient infused in an unprecedented dosage: Prickly Pear oil, filled with omegas 3 and 9, providing significant antioxidant action while nourishing the skin.

You’ll find these active ingredients in the Cactéa cream range: Crème Veloutée, with its moisturizing and plumping action, and Crème Riche, offering redensifying action. To complete your ritual, Crème Somptueuse Yeux focuses on the sensitive eye contour area, with the additional benefit of stimulating niacinamide and peptides.

Second-skin alternative: like a comforting cocoon, Richesse d'Arganier is a moisturizing face cream that contains hyaluronic acid and softening, protective Argan oil.

To optimize your moisturizing routine, ensure gentle yet thorough cleansing. The application of moisturizing skincare is always more effective on clean skin, free of impurities and dead cells. The choice of cleanser is crucial: Caresse de Néroli – Gentle Makeup Remover is an ideal choice, with its creamy texture composed of nourishing Argan oil and moisturizing glycerine.

Renewed morning and night, this routine will ensure your skin is radiant and healthy.
