What is Water-based Skincare?

We all know about the importance of hydrating our bodies, and we know that water is important in every aspect of our lives, so, why shouldn’t it be an important element of our skincare routine too?

Water-based skincare is, simply put, skincare products that use water as a key ingredient.

Water-based products help other ingredients within the product to do their job to their best ability. It has so many benefits, which is exactly why Antidote No1 uses a water-based formula.

Water-based skincare can help to instantly rejuvenate the skin by penetrating the deeper layers of skin. Not only does it quench your skin’s thirst, but it also helps plump your complexion. This tends to have an anti-ageing effect that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with a youthful, hydrated glow.

Some of the main benefits of water-based skincare include:

  • Skin hydration
  • Firming, plumping effect
  • Easily absorbed into the skin
  • Non-greasy
  • Suitable for all skin types

One of the greatest things about water-based skincare is that it will not stick to the surface of the skin, like oil-based products. Which means that water-based products are less likely to cause breakouts and are usually suitable for sensitive skin.

During the winter, our skin can become dry, cracked and dull-looking. To avoid this, you should begin to incorporate more water-based products into your skincare routine.
