4 REASONS TO KEEP YOUR HYDRATION LEVELS TOPPED UP
Hydration is essential to our physical and mental health — so how can you look your best? Drinking water will help keep this key organ in the right shape. Here are four reasons why hydrated skin looks better than dry, dehydrated ones:
1. FLUSH OUT TOXINS
You can’t see it, but our bodies are constantly under attack from huge amounts of toxins on a daily basis. The skin's purpose as part of an organ system includes sloughing off cellular waste material and sweating out excess minerals or toxic agents, but it relies on proper hydration for continued detoxification efficiency.
2. KEEPS YOUR SEBACEOUS GLANDS REGULATED AND FIGHT ACNE
If you have oily skin, you might be tempted to skip moisturizer altogether, believing that your skin already has more than enough moisture. Unfortunately, the opposite is probably true.
Your skin has the ability to detect hydration levels, and when it senses a lack of moisture, it often goes into overdrive trying to compensate. It signals the sebaceous glands to produce sebum — a mix of oils that lubricate and protect the skin.
3. IMPROVE SKIN ELASTICITY
Aging skin becomes wrinkled, saggy, or leathery due to the lack of collagen. The key is drinking enough water and having a quality moisturizing skincare routine so that your body can continue building new collagen even as you age.
Skin elasticity helps it fight gravity by maintaining plumpness when young; this weakens with aging leading to wrinkles and sagging skin which in turn leads us back to fighting against gravity using things like proper hydration practices!.
4. BOOST YOUR DEFENSES
We live in a world where the air is filled with harmful substances and our skin plays an important role to protect us against them.
When we don't hydrate enough, it can become dry or tight while also allowing small gaps between cells which allow those bad things into your body.
So you need to make sure that your skin has adequate water at all times!.
The skin's job in protecting us starts with being hydrated-- a crucial step to maintaining its resilience as well as ours.
HOW TO KEEP SKIN BEAUTIFULLY HYDRATED IN JUST THREE STEPS
DON’T FORGET TO MOISTURIZE:
Whether your skin leans toward dry or super oily, a quality moisturizer is always essential to a healthy complexion.
Be sure to choose a formula that’s suited to your skin type. Drier skin will drink up a thicker moisturizer, body butter, or natural oil that will both nourish your complexion and help to prevent water from escaping the surface.
Oily skin types should look for lighter water-based, non-comedogenic hydration that won’t clog pores.
Hydration and moisturizing go hand in hand, so while it’s important to apply a topical moisturizer, don’t forget to hit the water bottle to keep your skin hydrated from within too.
Experts recommend drinking about eight glasses (or two liters) a day to keep your body — and your complexion — happy.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT CLEANSER
It might sound surprising, but proper cleaning is essential to maintaining beautifully hydrated skin.
Many cleansers strip the skin of their natural oils, leaving behind an uncomfortably tight complexion and often prompting sebaceous glands to overproduce oil too.
If your skin feels tight and dry after you wash, swap your harsh cleanser for a gentle, hydrating cleanser instead.
The Hydrating & Brightening Moringa Facial Cleanser Face Wash has a soothing alcohol-free and vegan formula that's packed with natural, nourishing ingredients, including Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, aloe vera, and honey.
Specifically developed to sweep away makeup, dirt, and excess oil without over-drying or irritating the skin, it leaves behind a clean, soft, and perfectly hydrated complexion.
