Why Skin Hydration is Important?

Hydrate! hydrate! that's the word the beautician keep telling me during my visit to facial treatment before MCO. At that point my thinking always..."I drink plenty of water what? What's the problem?" Well, the beautician obviously were talking about my skin hydration. As the ageing process, it is natural for our skin to lose up some of the essential nutrition just like our body too.

Dehydrated skin occurs when there's a lack of water in the skin. Not like you can feed your skin with water, right? 

How the dehydrated skin looks like?

Well, the dehydrated skin usually looks dull and show premature signs of ageing such as wrinkles and loss of elasticity. You can easily tell on the dehydrated skin if you notice some of the symptoms below :

* More sensitive fine lines and wrinkles start to appear
* You skin feel itchy
* Dull skin 
* Dark under-eye circles or your eyes always look tired and sunken.

Still unable to tell? You can do the simple dehydrated skin test at home, which I call it " Self pinching test".

Dehydrated skin test :

1. Pinch small portion of skin on your cheek, abdomen, check or even the back of your hand. Then hold for a few seconds.

2. Release it. Then if your skin snaps back or bounces back means you are likely safe. Not dehydrated.

3. If your skin takes a few seconds to bounce back means... you definitely need help. You are likely dehydrated.

You can repeat this process in other skin areas too.

By the way, don't get confused between dehydrated skin and dry skin. Dry skin most likely oily or combination skin where skin complexion lacks oils or lipids. If your skin appears flaky and dry appearance then most likely you are suffering for dry skin too.

Other dry skin symptoms:

* scaly appearance
* redness and irritation
* white flakes
* sudden eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.

As for me, my skin is more dehydrated on the face and dry in the leg and other parts of the body.

I used to apply the whole range of dehydration skin series for my face skin and hydration lotion for other parts of the body. Since the hydration gets better.  These days, I more focus on brightening skincare series and just apply hydration face mask sheet on alternate days in a week. But the cost can be expensive.

Recently, I found a mask sheet which gives me up to 72 hours of hydration power. Yes! we are talking about a serum which will last on your skin for 3 days. I highly recommend this especially for a busy woman and also for those who are looking for cost efficiency skincare. Most of all, this mask is made in Malaysia. Yeah! I am playing my part in building up the economy by supporting local products.

IMBZ Infinite Hyaluronic Acid Silk Mask claimed as the world 1st Ultimate Hydrating Mask with 8 types of Hyaluronic Acid. I only know Hyaluronic Acid is one must-have ingredient for Hydration. I don't even know they have many types of Hyaluronic Acid.

Let me write through what is the 8 types of Hyaluronic Acid means :

1. Hyaluronic Acid 

Increases fundamental moisture inside of skin by promoting the generation of Aquaporic3.

2. Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid

Improves moisturizing level inside of skin maintaining moist skin.

3. Potassium Hyaluronate

Drags water from inside of the skin to the surface part, supplying moisture constantly.

4. Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate

Non-sticky, better affinity to the skin surface and moisture retention ability.

5. Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate

A cationic hyaluronic acid which keeps water into the skin by forming moisture film.

6. Sodium Hyaluronate

Attracts water around the skin, preventing water from evaporation and forming a moisture film.

7. Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer

Keeps and store water in the skin and prevents wrinkles by forming moisturizing curtains.

8. Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate

Able to penetrate deep inside the skin due to its small-sized molecules through hydrolysis of Sodium Hyaluronate. 

IMBZ Infinite Hyaluronic Acid Silk Mask claimed 8 immediate beneficial effects with just 1 sheet :

* Hydrating
* Moisturizing
* Whitening
* Repair / Protecting
* Soothing
* Refining
* Purifying
* Re-energizing

My experience trying out IMBZ Infinite Hyaluronic Acid Silk Mask :

The silk mask sheet is really soft and soaked with essence. I applied it on well-cleansed skin for around 10 minutes. I don't want to soak more than 10 minutes and overdosed my skin. I was so pleased with the immediate effect with just one application.

Love that my dull skin turns out brighter than usual and the moisturising level is much better than usual. I could say my skin look much better and healthier even after 3 days. Good news for this lazy woman here. I can keep my skincare routine short. IMBZ gives me good skincare as if I have been applying the mask every day. Totally love the result of this mask. For a local product, I have nothing to say but praise for its good quality. This mask is suitable for all skin types too.

If you don't want to experience premature ageing, just keep your skin hydrated and don't give a lame 'I am busy!' excuse. It takes only 10 to 15 minutes of your time for every 72 hours of your time to care for your skin. You can never reverse back ageing but you can slow down the process. Hydrate! Hydrate! This routine is important for your skin. No one will love you unless you love yourself first!
