‘To hydrate or not to hydrate?’ is a question no one ever asks. We all know that our skin needs moisture to stay plump, firm and healthy. But what will make a difference in how your skin absorbs the hydration is the texture of the product? What can gels or hydrators do that creams, lotions or even a direct glass of water cannot?

To answer this, we’re diving deep (pun intended) into why you need to try this ultra-nourishing texture, and why the new Nykaa Naturals Hydrating Gels can become a non-negotiable item on your beauty  shelves.

Reason 1: Hydrating Gels Are Great For All Skin Types

While it’s natural for those with oily skin types to prefer textures that are lightweight, gel textures also work really well for dry skin types–they instantly quench your skin’s thirst, and can leave your skin feeling supple. Another myth is that people with greasy skin don’t need to hydrate, while in fact, a lack of hydration is what causes the skin to excrete excess oil to maintain balance. Nykaa Naturals’ Hydrating Gels are lightweight and easy to absorb, making them perfect for sensitive skin types too, especially with soothing ingredients like tea tree and neem.

Reason 2: Hydration Improves Skin Elasticity

As we age, our body’s ability to hydrate our outer layer of the skin reduces, making it less elastic and the skin cells shrink. Hence, dousing it with hydrating ingredients like aloe vera promotes collagen production and keeps the skin cells plump and nourished.

Reason 3: Well-Hydrated Skin Helps Maintain The Skin’s Barrier Function

When your epidermis (the outer layer of the skin) is nourished and supple, it is more resilient in its fight against aggressors. It allows for the proper function of your skin’s microbiome, and also allows easy penetration of helpful skin ingredients. Ingredients like lavender, neem and tea tree, present in Nykaa Naturals’ Hydrating Gels have antibacterial and antioxidant properties that help protect and heal your skin while maintaining the right balance of moisture.

Reason 4: They Help Reduce Chances Of Acne And Soothe Skin

Nykaa Naturals Hydrating Gels contain skin-soothing ingredients like aloe vera, cucumber and rose water as the base. Choose from two variants, one with tea tree and neem, and the other featuring calming ingredients like lavender and chamomile to keep breakouts and skin inflammation at bay.

Reason 5: Hydrating Ingredients Act As Skin Coolers

Everything from dark circles and under-eye puffiness to pigmentation and early signs of ageing, hydration can solve them all. Hydrating gels can be used as coolants for your skin that instantly calm your tired skin and give it the nourishment needed to rejuvenate. Think of ingredients like rose water and cucumber for the same.
