Korean Secret Solution: Introducing Hydrating Hero

Soul Story’s devotion to delivering healthy and natural skincare is continued with the creation of a water-based gel cream

The secret is out! Moisturizer lovers, meet Hydrating Hero, a Korean red ginseng gel cream.  Soul Story’s devotion to delivering healthy and natural skincare is continued with the creation of a water-based gel cream. It provides skin hydration, anti-aging, and skin brightening.  In recent years, gel cream has become one of the best kept secrets of the Korean beauty market.  It makes sense, as water-based gel creams are super hydrating so your skin doesn’t compromise comfort for moisture.  

Solution for Skin Dehydration

The water-based gel cream provides skin hydration to restore your skin’s dryness and transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Everyone’s skin loses water content due to evaporation and other factors such as sitting in circulated air.  Therefore, to combat transepidermal water loss, it requires both internal and external sources of hydration. This is where our Korean gel cream, Hydrating Hero, comes to your skin’s external rescue by topical application. 

Even Oily Skin Needs Gel Cream

It is also important to understand that that there is no correlation between skin types and skin’s level of hydration.  In fact, 80% of people have dehydrated skin, regardless of skin type.  Common signs of dehydrated skin includes dullness, fine lines and surface wrinkles.  As a result, not all fine lines and surface wrinkles are caused by aging…

Difference between Traditional Moisturizers and Korean Gel Cream

In general, traditional moisturizers are oil-based while gel creams are water-based.  Oil-based products take longer to absorb into the skin while gel creams provide instant hydration.  Most importantly, for those of you who are impatient and/or busy, the best time saver is to use water-based gel creams as they absorb easily and quickly into your skin.  The other advantage of using gel cream is that it will stay on your skin longer throughout the day. Hydrating Hero is an ideal moisturizer for the day, under make-up and sunscreen, and night.  Both types of products will provide moisture and hydration, however, how much will depend entirely on the quality of the ingredients.
