All moisturizers are not created equal: Humectants vs. Emollients

All moisturizers are not created equal. Humectants, such as Hydrating Serum by Revision, are able to pull moisture into the skin to ad to your skins current moisture content while emollients, like Bionic Face Cream by NeoStrata, are great at providing a protective barrier to hold your skins moisture in (the most common of which is petrolatum). Find out which moisturizer is best for your skin by consulting with one of my qualified skincare professionals
