The Secret to Moisturizing Your Skin Nobody Tells You About
Written by Keren Dinkin
That a hydrating serum is an absolute necessity to keep your skin glowing and moisturized is not news. In fact, it has been a staple in every beauty enthusiast’s skincare arsenal for a while now.
But what no one tells you is that a serum alone is not enough to work wonders for your skin.
You need a good oil along with a serum to keep your skin hydrated all day long.
Today we will discuss different skin types and how you can use ORGAID’s organic skincare products to get the skin of your dreams sans the fuss.
Caring for Different Skin Types
Our skin needs oil and water in the right balance to stay healthy. Water hydrates our skin and keeps it supple and youthful. Meanwhile, oil moisturizes our skin, protects, and strengthens its natural lipid barrier.
But different skin types need different amounts of oil and water to remain at its hydrated best.
That’s because like our personalities, the needs of our skin vary greatly too.
People with dry skin have a dull, rough complexion, less elastic skin, almost invisible pores with well discernible lines. Such skin may suffer from cracks, peeling, irritation, redness, and inflammation.
Dry skin not only has poor hydration but also cannot produce enough sebum to keep itself moisturized.
So, it needs intensely hydrating skincare products to lock in moisture.
People with an oily skin type have enlarged pores, acne, and a dull or shiny complexion. Their skin produces excess sebum that clogs pores and leads to acne and blemishes.
So, they need to use beauty products that focus on oil control to balance their skin, unclog pores, and reduce acne.
This skin type is probably the rarest. It essentially means healthy and balanced skin with optimal hydration and sebum production.
Doubling Up Your Hydrating Serum As A Moisturizer
Using a hydrating serum is an easy way to feed our skin water. But how do we feed our skin the right amount of oil every single day? Enter moisturizers. They nourish, protect, and moisturize our skin and keep it healthy and balanced.
However, moisturizers are usually not as powerful and effective as serums as they often lack active ingredients. Also, it can be difficult to customize the oil content in a moisturizer to your specific skin type.
So, how should you moisturize and protect your skin without overloading it with oil or under nourishing it?
Check out ORGAID’s moisturizing duo: ORGAID Youth Serum and ORGAID Organic Face Oil. The Youth Serum has powerful, natural ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin C that deliver maximum hydration to your skin.
The Organic Face Oil has organic ingredients like squalene, rosehip seed extract, amaranth, jojoba oil, and rosemary extract. It softens and moisturizes your skin and keeps it smooth and supple.
And you can use a different combination of each to suit your skin type.
Check in with your skin first thing every morning and decide what it needs for the day. For example, if your oily skin is feeling dry for some reason, you should follow a skincare routine for dry skin.
Meanwhile, even people with dry skin can suddenly find their skin has become oily in the summer or for other reasons. They should follow an oily skincare routine for those days.
Depending on what your skin needs for the day, mix the Youth Serum and Organic Face Oil in different ratios and make your own moisturizer. (See below.) Apply them once in the morning and then again at night for best results.
This simple routine can help you take care of your skin the right way and keep it healthy and nourished.
Follow it diligently to get smooth, supple, and perfectly moisturized skin, all day, every day.
