Humectants – Everything you need to know

About a month ago, I uploaded a video about the difference between dry and dehydrated skin (here if you missed it).

I promised to do one more about humectants, emollients and occlusives as a follow up and here I am to live up to that promise.

Not exactly though, as I had so much to say about humectants that it filled a video all by itself. The one (ones?) about emollients and occlusives will follow at a later date.

Which will make it easier just to get the information you need, and if by last months video you already know you don´t care about humectants, you can totally skip this upload and invest your time in something more productive.

So let´s today face (pun intended) the facts: Hyperpigmentation – Everything you need to know.
