Hydration means replenishing lost fluids, especially water, in something, like the human body. It’s all about topping up what you’ve lost, often through drinking. When someone talks about being well-hydrated, it simply means there’s a good amount of water in their system. Now, you can’t talk about hydration without mentioning its opposite: dehydration. That’s when water gets zapped out or when there’s just not enough to go around. So, in a nutshell, hydration is like giving your body a refreshing sip to keep it running smoothly, while dehydration is like leaving it parched in the desert.


Water is not the only way to hyrate yourself, keep in mind that fruits, or vegetable are also great ways to keep you body hydrated.

Those two words are to often mixed up.You find them in your cream description but do you really know the differences. It’s actually very simple: The dictionary defines hydrating as water absorption and moisturizing as adding moisture. For skin care, for example, this means hydrating products should sink into your skin below the surface, while moisturizers should act more like a sealant.

To resume, hydration is getting water into your body while moisture is keeping water in (e.g. with oil).

You have something called the purgor test. It’s when you pinch your skin, and test is elasticity. If you skin get right back in place, your have a good level of hydration, if it doesn’t you need to go get a bottle quick. But this technique is far from accurate.

The best way to test it is by looking at it. If your skin is feeling lackluster, tight, and maybe showing some signs of aging like fine lines or under-eye circles, chances are it’s dehydrated. On the other hand, if it’s looking a bit like a flaky croissant and feeling itchy, then it’s probably just naturally dry.

For the thirsty skin, you’ll want to grab products packed with humectants to draw in that moisture. But if your skin’s naturally dry or maybe dealing with a weakened barrier, you’ll need some occlusive ingredients to lock in all that goodness. And if you’ve both going on, look for products that offer a mix of hydration and moisture
