Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Did you know that your skin is an organ? Like any other part of your body, it is made up of cells. But have you realized that all of the cells in your body are 70 percent water? It’s no surprise that we’re advised to drink at least eight glasses of water each day—it’s important that we keep our bodies healthy and happy!
Do you see where this is leading?
Drinking water just doesn’t cut it. Your skin needs hydration just like every other cell in your body. That’s why it is imperative that you hydrate both internally and externally to ensure that all cells in your body are functioning not only properly, but also at their best.
How do I know if I’m getting enough hydration for my skin?
Fortunately, your skin will tell you if it’s not getting the right amount of water. If it’s not, you’ll see dry, tight, and flaky skin. Skin with less resilience is most likely being deprived of hydration. It’s important to quench your skin’s thirst when you notice dryness and other irritations.
I’m drinking a lot of water every day—how do I know when it’s enough?
The hard truth about drinking water and hydrating your skin is that the water you ingest travels to your organs and then is dispersed to your bloodstream; it never actually reaches your skin. Therefore, it’s not only important to drink water internally, but to apply it to your skin and keep it there as well.
That being said, simply dousing your skin with water or taking an extra shower won’t even do the trick. You need to make sure the water that comes into contact with your skin actually stays there.
How do I add water to my skin?
This is the easy part. There are quite a few solutions for keeping your skin hydrated, healthy and radiant:
- Start with a product containing a hyaluronic acid immediately upon leaving the shower or bath. It will act to attract water to your skin and hold it there.
- Apply a post-shower moisturizer while your skin is still porous and open to absorbing hydrating nutrients–within two minutes of showering or bathing. It’s best to apply a hydrating moisturizer.
- Drink it up! Consume the recommended eight glasses of water each day. It’s not that hard, and it helps your body rid of toxins. It is a step in a healthy direction and can only stand to aid in your overall well being, both internally and externally.
