Japanese Scientists Say We Only Need This Ingredient To Achieve Beautiful Skin

We might be all doing our skincare routine wrong according to Japanese scientists as we only need water in order to dehydrate our skin.
A Skin Research and Technology study released today, November 7 has found out that we only need water in order to achieve beautiful skin.
The study conducted at Aichi Medical University in Japan examined 17 faces of healthy adult women aged between 30 and 46. Each woman's face was sprayed with a fine mist of water, under conditions similar to winter, when our skin is at its driest form.
Scientists then found that the women's moisture levels and elasticity dramatically improved after spraying a water mist.
"In addition, water retention function remained constant at 360 minutes after spraying," the study added.
The method of "watering" your face is very important to consider but know that while you get your face wet by dunking your head in a bowl of water or under the shower, you will not get the penetration necessary to truly achieve hydration.
By using a misting bottle, water is separated into small particles with a tiny diameter allowing the water molecules to "pass through the gaps" between skin layers and cells. This heightened your skin water content, repairing dry areas and softening it.
The study also added that it is better to use "non-charged water particles" or those water which did not go through steaming or vaporing or with gas that has been charged with electricity.
They recommended distilled water as it has been stripped of contaminants and minerals so it is better for the skin.
