Why You Should Apply Products On Damp Skin

Kick your skincare routine up a notch

If you’re looking for a new way to maximize the effectiveness of your skincare routine without drastically changing your skincare routine, we have the perfect tip for you! And it requires zero downtime.

💦 Make It Damp

Before investing in a new moisturizer, try applying your skincare routine on damp skin.

Why you may ask? It’s because your skin is much more permeable when wet. According to Dr. Angela J. Lamb, Associate Professor of Dermatology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, “Moisturizers, in particular, work best when applied to damp skin as they trap moisture from the water on your skin.” The excess moisture acts like a sponge drawing water to your skin keeping it hydrated even longer.

It’s best to implement this tip when using humectants. Humectants are ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin that draw water from the environment into the uppermost layers of the skin. They work around the clock to fill your skin with moisture. Damp skin helps by increasing their absorption powers working wonders at locking in that hydration. One major side effect? Effortlessly dewy skin.

While we love this tip for boosting the skin’s moisture levels there are some ingredients you may want to avoid when trying this out. Jackie Spagnuolo, an aesthetic nurse practitioner, says, “Because your skin is absorbing more product while it’s wet, it can often increase irritation so I would avoid strong products like retinoids, prescribed topicals, and exfoliants like AHAs, BHAs, and PHAs." These products contain concentrated amounts of actives and don’t need the extra absorption that damp skin allows. When in doubt — stick to hydrating and moisturizing ingredients only.

🧴What products should you use?

We love applying this technique with our Tofu Gel Cream. The lightweight gel formula includes humectants like prickly pear extract, glycerin, and centella asiatica that are known for their powerful moisture retention properties. While this moisturizer is lovely on its own, applying on damp skin will help it to work even better.

We suggest pairing it with a facial oil to maintain radiant, healthy-looking skin. Our Fig Renewal Oil is formulated with fig extract to increase the skin’s moisture levels, while the jojoba and sunflower seed oil provides a protective barrier leaving skin plump and juicy.

 

LONG STORY SHORT

If you constantly suffer from dry and dehydrated skin, this damp skin technique is a must-have. It doesn’t require more products and can be implemented into your daily routine fairly easily.
