Hydratation vs Nutrition

Hydration vs. Nutrition: Understanding your skin's needs.

In our constant quest for glowing, healthy skin, two terms come up often: hydration and nutrition. Although they may seem interchangeable, they actually meet specific skin needs.

Hydration: An essential care for balanced skin
Hydration is the process of supplying water to the skin to maintain its moisture balance. Our skin is constantly exposed to factors that can dry it out, such as exposure to sun, wind, cold, as well as chemicals found in some skincare products.
When skin is dehydrated, it can appear dull, tight and even irritated. Hydration needs vary between skin types; dry skin needs more hydration than oily skin.
Moisturizers, serums and masks made with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin and ceramides help retain moisture. water in the skin, keeping it hydrated and supple.
At les huilettes, no risk of chemical ingredients! And if you need hydration, consider CREAM, our universal emulsion (with hyaluronic acid) or MIST, moisturizing mist (patented active ingredient derived from Birch sugars which boosts the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and ceramides 1 & 2 (+40% immediate hydration*)).

Nutrition: Nourishing the skin from the inside
While hydration focuses on providing water to the skin, nutrition aims to nourish the skin providing it with the essential nutrients it needs to be healthy and function optimally.
These nutrients may include vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and antioxidants.
The skin's nutrition is crucial to maintain its protective barrier, promote cell renewal and prevent damage caused by external aggressions.
Ingredients such as vegetable oils rich in omega fatty acids, extracts plants and vitamins A, C and E are often used in skincare products to provide the skin with the nutrients it needs.
At les huilettes, SENSITIVE will nourish and soothe reactive skin (also with Calendula, natural source of Retinol, Beta Carotenes or Vitamin E). The NIGHT serum will have plus smoothing, tightening and regenerating effects (Italian Helichrysum, Myrtle, Oregano and Rosat Geranium).

For glowing, healthy skin, it is essential to find the right balance between hydration and nutrition.
