Moisture is the most important prerequisite for beautiful, smooth and healthy skin. Skin can only perform its task as a protective barrier for the body properly if it has sufficient moisture content.
The skin’s outer layer, the epidermis, is covered with a fine film of water and lipids. This keeps the skin smooth and prevents fungi and bacteria from penetrating.
The skin is also unable to naturally regenerate without moisture, as the messenger substances for building new skin cells cannot reach the areas where they are needed without water.
Moisture is particularly important for maintaining the elasticity of our skin. Without water, every small movement would tear the skin.
