All skins need daily care to contribute to their comfort, to alleviate the imperfections or to fight against the signs of the time.

To have a radiant skin, it is necessary to take the greatest care and to combine two rituals indispensable to its beauty: HYDRATER and NOURRIR.

There is often confusion between these two concepts.

What are the differences between feeding your skin and moisturizing it, and how to do it in both cases? We will bring you natural answers and useful beauty tips!

HYDRATER or NOURRIR what differences?

- Moisturizing the skin means providing it with water

The moisturizer in addition to the daily intake from the diet (beverages, fruits, vegetables among others) will provide your skin with the water it needs. Proper hydration will prevent the epidermis from being uncomfortable, tugging, or even being prone to redness which is also caused by lack of hydration.

In order to know if your skin is dehydrated, try pinching it gently at the forehead, around the eyes or cheeks for example, if small fine lines appear, it means that your skin is dehydrated.

If the oily skin is too nourished, conversely the dry skin is not enough and lack of lipids. Again, the feeding and application of suitable creams will allow to nourish the skin deeply. The sebum, this light but essential, protective film of the epidermis against external aggressions (wind, pollution, cold, etc.), needs lipids to ensure its role.
