Water vs. Oil: There is a big difference!
Sixty percent of the human body is made out of water, and our skin only receives the benefits of it if it is consumed (i.e. drinking lots of it!) or in the form of water-based moisturisers. That’s why applying these products is crucial for our skin’s hydration levels and overall health.
P.S. Hydrated skin also makes the perfect canvas for flawless makeup application.
Hydrating v. Moisturising?
Did you know that there is a big difference between hydrating and moisturising? Hydration is the first crucial step in skincare whereas the latter is second. Compared to pure oils, water-based formulas absorb faster into the skin and water is a vessel to better distribute other active ingredients. Our skin only produces oil not water – so make sure you get that H20 in and on your body.
Where Bella Aura fits in:
With Bella Aura, you get the benefits from advanced bio-active ingredients and a bonus punch of moisture. The emulsions are water-based, never clog pores and deeply hydrate the skin at the targeted cellular level. You can think of oil as a “gatekeeper” of hydration. In other words, face oils’ purpose is for lipid barrier protection or physical coating of the skin. If face oils and Bella Aura emulsions or other water-based products are part of your skincare regimen, it would be best to apply the hydrating product first and the moisturizing product last.
