Hot weather is one of the main factors that strip moisture and dehydrate the skin and body. With the arrival of December and the festive season, its important to stay healthy, safe and maintain your glow as we celebrate and travel through the holidays.

Nomzamo knows the importance of keeping skin hydrated to look her healthy best which is why she loves the upgraded Neutrogena® Hydro Boost range, especially the Serum, Eye Cream and Water Gel.

Ingredients that target hydration

Skincare products that target hydration like the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost range, contain humectants such hyaluronic acid which retains an impressive 1,000 times its weight in water — and will add a healthy dose of hydration back into the skin. Neutrogena has now included a new ingredient into their popular Hydro Boost range, called Trehalose. This natural botanical is derived from the Resurrection plant which can survive for 50 years without water in harsh desert conditions. This new combination of Hyaluronic Acid and Trehalose forms a hydrating powerhouse duo that provides superior long-lasting hydration.

What are the benefits of skin hydration?

Hydrated skin looks more plump, supple and elastic and feels softer and more comfortable. Remember, all skin types, including oily skin, can become dehydrated. If oily skin becomes dehydrated, it responds by producing even more oil, which can lead to break- outs.

Is dry skin the same as dehydrated skin?

Simply put, dehydrated skin lacks water while dry skin lacks oil. Dry skin is actually a skin type while dehydrated skin is something that anyone can experience.
