Hydration vs. moisturization – is there a difference? First off, hydration is the key to helping the body function correctly. Our skin is our greatest asset and since it is the body’s largest organ we need to keep it constantly hydrated. Drinking water is good for our skin, but it must go through other organs before it reaches its last stop which is the skin. Unfortunately, it is not enough to fully hydrate our skin.

This is where topical products come into play. Moisturizers are great as a skin barrier and they protect us from losing more moisture, but most of them are not very hydrating for our skin. Think of a water balloon that has a pin hole in it and starts to seep water. Putting a piece of tape over the hole only slows the water loss, but does not replenish the water. Moisturizer is like the piece of tape and a good hydrator helps to replenish the balloon’s water.

King of Hydration – Hyaluronic Acid

One of the best hydrators is Hyaluronic Acid which is an acid that our bodies naturally produces and is found in almost every cell within us. This acid is important because it is a water loving molecule that can hold moisture 1000 times its weight. It hydrates the skin efficiently and effectively while also providing lubrication to joints and muscles.

SkinMedica has created a product that is not only hydrating, but rejuvenating and proven to make a visible change to the skin. HA5 has a mixture of 5 different types of Hyaluronic Acid that provide immediate smoothing of the skin making the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles become less pronounced. It also locks in moisture for up to 8 hours.

  • Sodium Hyaluronate (a form of Hyaluronic Acid) to provide immediate hydration
  • Uncross-linked HA to provide smoothness and hydration
  • Nano Hyaluronic Acid to soothe skin
