Hydration: answers to your questions!

We all know that beautiful skin is a well moisturized skin. OK, but when? How? Why? Yves Rocher Director of Scientific Development Virginie Couturaud has the answers!

I’m a little confused between dry skin and dehydrated skin. What's the difference?

It's easy. Dry skin is a type of skin, which you will have for the rest of your life, and dehydrated skin is a condition your skin is in at a given time. Whether skin is naturally dry, combination, normal or oily, external factors like cold, wind, and sun can dry it out.

My skin is naturally oily. Do I really need to moisturize it?

Yes! Oily skin must be hydrated. When you wash your face to get rid of the oiliness, it usually weakens the hydrolipidic film and your skin loses its ability to retain water, which causes discomfort and tightness.



Why do you have to moisturize before putting on makeup?

Moisturized skin means a radiant complexion and no more redness or tightness – plus it's the best base layer for setting your makeup, from foundation to eye shadow.

Your skin will actually be more hydrated if you drink more water.

Drinking 1.5 liters (6 glasses) of water a day will hydrate your skin from the inside. Water helps the cells disperse and makes your skin supple, radiant, and firm. Our bodies are made of 60% water and cells are engorged with it, so we need it to live.



I love exfoliating and I do it regularly. But can’t it dry out my skin?

Oui, voilà pourquoi il ne faut pas en abuser et choisir un gommage doux pour le visageL'éponge Konjac, par exemple, est une bonne alternative pour nettoyer la peau sans l'agresser. Gommer élimine les cellules mortes et agresse le film hydrolipidique, avec, à la longue, une déstructuration de la barrière cutanée qui va moins bien jouer son rôle de régulateur et entraîner une perte en eau.

Yes, which is why you shouldn’t overdo it and choose a gentle scrub for your face. The Konjac Sponge is a good alternative to if you want to cleanse your skin, even sensitive skin, without irritation. Exfoliating sloughs off dead skin cells and strains the hydrolipidic film. Over time, it breaks down the cutaneous barrier to the point where it is less effective at regulating and that leads to water loss.

When is the best time to moisturize my skin. Morning or night?

Morning AND night. The peak moment when skin can easily absorb moisturizers and active ingredients are most effective is after a shower or bath when the skin's outer layer has been softened.

Does skin need more moisture the more you moisturize it?

No, your skin doesn't get used to hydration, just to the comfortable feeling of being moisturized. Once you get used to moisturizing your skin, it’s hard to do without the suppleness and softness that skincare products provide.
