What is the Difference between Skin Hydrating and Moisturizing?

Not sure about you, I only know about moisturizing rather than hydrating. I always thought Hydrating and Moisturizing is the similar thing. 

Hydrating products are said to be moisturizing but its not the same thing. WTH! So confusing! I read somewhere and they said hydrating means the actual replenishment of moisture or water to skin cells. While moisturizing products keep the skin soft and prevent water content in skin from evaporating. With this both hydrating and moisturizer works well together. 

Question which one goes first? Hydrating or Moisturizer? should replenish moisture to your skin before apply moisturizing skincare. Hydrating product comes first and follow with moisturizer.

Does this means you need to apply 2 different products? 

Well...nowadays many moisturizer comes with water-binding ingredients. So you need to check the ingredients before purchase your next moisturizer.

 At age 40s its important for me to hydrate my skin well to ensure my skin is well maintain and slow down the aging process.

6 Benefits of Skin Hydration :

1. Less aggravated acne

2. Less dull and healthier

3. More plump and supple

4. Less oily

5. Less itchy and irritated

6. Foundation look better on your skin
