The Ultimate Guide To Hydration Face Wash: Benefits And Best Practises

The Ultimate Guide To Hydration Face Wash: Benefits And Best Practises

  • By Srishty Singh

If you grapple with flaky, brittle skin on the reg, perhaps it's time to add a hydrating face wash to your skincare. For those who aren’t aware – a hydrating face wash carries a humectant in its formulation that binds ample water molecules to the skin. It ensures your skin’s supple, soft appearance.. But that’s not all! Using a hydration face wash has a slew of other skin benefits. Scroll ahead to learn more.

 How is a regular face wash different from a hydration face wash?

Our skin is exposed to UV rays, environmental aggregators and menacing pollutants every day. This inadvertently leads to an accumulation of pollutants, gunk, and sebum on your skin’s outermost layers. A gentle hydrating face wash dissolves this unwarranted buildup without meddling with your skin’s pH. Moreover, it gives a big boost of long-lasting hydration to your skin. On the other hand, using a regular face wash can make your skin uncomfortably dry and taut.

 Is hydration important for all skin types? 

Yes! Hydration is indispensable for the health and healing of your skin (regardless of the type). Case in point –

1. For Dry Skin: Dry skin is characterized by the lack of moisturization and hydration – visible in the form of excessively flaky, scaly texture or a dull complexion. A hydrating face wash replenishes your skin’s moisture bank, boosting its latent radiance.

2. Oily Skin: The lack of hydration can trigger the sebaceous glands into overdrive mode. That’s right! Your skin starts producing more sebum to compensate for the lack of moisture molecules. So, to maintain a balanced microbiome, a hydrating face wash is non-negotiable.

3. Sensitive Skin: Long-lasting hydration is of utmost importance for the maintenance of your skin barrier. A damaged barrier or a weakened barrier can lead to inflammation, skin infectious, flare-ups (or skin sensitivity).

 What are the benefits of using a hydrating face wash? 

This section of the blog elaborates on the many benefits of using a hydrating face wash.

1. Improves Skin Texture: Whether your skin type is dry or exceptionally oily, a hydrating face wash will help improve its texture. A potent formulation gently rinses dust, pollutants, and grime from your face while reducing flakiness (or the perpetual oil slick on your face). Results? An even skin texture that ensures better absorption of the rest of your skincare formulas (like serum and moisturizer).

2. Makes Your Skin Plump: Using a hydrating face wash on the reg, makes your skin plump while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Upholds Skin Barrier: We have learnt that long-lasting hydration is essential for a sturdy barrier. This healthy skin barrier wards off pollutants, pathogens, and other external aggressors with ease.

4. Alleviates Skin Redness And Irritation: Regular hydration adds to your skin’s healing power. That’s right – hydrated skin recovers from nicks, cuts, blemishes, and episodes of inflammation or irritation a lot quicker.
