Every skin needs hydration! The process involves bringing water and water-retaining ingredients through the epidermis to the dermis and “sealing in” the moisture with emollients designed to strengthen the epidermis. The emollients, in most cases, are fatty acids, and this is the reason for the appearance of this myth. Choose products that aim to achieve balance, providing deep hydration while balancing sebum production. Use cosmetics that are suitable for the needs of your skin type and remember that there is no universal solution for every problem!
