Skin Hydration And Products That Claim To Do The Same
A very common skin problem is over-drying and dehydration of the skin. Dry, dehydrated skin is one of the worst problems faced by me. The chilly winters and these March days, when the sun shines hot and wind blows cold, when its summer in the light and winter in the shades, this time of the year make the problem even worse.
We all know important is proper hydration for your overall health. Drinking adequate water can help you a lot in hydrating your body. With that we have hydrating creams, serums and treatments (for as long as I can remember) to curb the problem of skin dehydration.
Hydration is one of the key elements to bouncy, fresh looking skin. Therefore it is important to help diffuse water into each layer of the skin. So let us see which products claim to do the sameâ€¦
This feels like a splash of cool water when applied. The Vit E beads melt into the skin on contact, and this actually does make the skin smoother after prolonged usage. But if you expect this to have a brightening effect then this is not the case. It makes the skin smoother, softer and look really healthy and hydrated but not fairer or anything. Any glow is the by-product of the hydration working on your skin.
Zara says, â€œThis moisturizer feels more like a gel and has a cucumber-like fresh fragrance. The minute I apply it on my face, my skin feels cool as if Iâ€™ve splashed water on it. It gets absorbed within a minute and leaves no oily residue behind like some moisturizers do. It doesnâ€™t make my skin sweat either. Whatâ€™s more, this actually does mattify the skin somewhat. I didnâ€™t believe it at first because to me the words â€˜mattifyâ€™ and â€˜moisturizeâ€™ donâ€™t quite seem in tandem. But this baby proved me wrong. It keeps my skin hydrated AND non-oily at the same time. This makes my skin look well moisturized and healthy. Mostly, I like it because it does exactly what it claimsâ€¦no OTT claims of fairness or skin tightening..blah blah! Just plain hydration and oil-controlâ€¦and it delivers..All in all, this is one heck of a refreshing treat for the skin.â€
It infuses nourishing moisture into dry, rebellious, over stressed hair with a special complex of silk amino acids, wheatgerm oil and botanical extracts of lemongrass, algae and sage. It improves elasticity, minimized porosity. Ansu says, â€œReally ladies, this is the best thing I have ever got for my hair. It is like a dream come true for dry hair. This masque is the easiest deep conditioning, you can do at home.â€
Maitri says, â€œI have been using it since last 2 months and it hasnâ€™t failed to impress me. I use it in the morning and it removes all hints of oil from my face without any feeling of dryness. When I started using it, the weather was really dry but the face wash kept my skin supple. My skin feels fresh and clean after using this cleanser. It lathers well and gets rinsed off easily.â€ The face wash is for instant freshness and so it has an aptly refreshing fragrance with a hint of citrus.

What I adore about this toner is the fact that it DOES what it says â€“ it says that it shrinks your pores, and believe me, it does. It shrinks my open pores. I get my blackhead removing kit ready, go for my open pores, dig out the dirt, and then I spritz on some of this, and within 10 minutes I can see the results. Which is pretty much impressive, and the other thing that I like is â€“ unlike other toners which you have to take out, use a cotton swab with and stuff, this one can be directly sprayed on your skin. No more dirty cotton application (YAY!!)
