What is a humectant?

A humectant is a term used in both beauty and food products that refer to an ingredient that retains moisture. If you have extremely dry skin, this is a must for your skin care products.

Natural humectants include Aloe, Honey and Hyaluronic acid.

I would suggest steaming your face before applying your products for maximum moisture retention.
