Beauty Series: Other than water, what things help us keep our skin hydrated?

August 2

This week, I ask beauty experts on how to keep our skin hydrated other than the obvious… drinking water.

As you may know an hydrated skin delays aging. Therefore, hydrating one’s skin is fundamental. Use a cleanser that hydrates and then apply your hydrating cream using upward movements to optimize the penetration and to lift the skin. In addition, you need to make sure that what you drink and eat provide enough water to your body and skin.

You can increase your hydration levels by using a moisturizer high in humectants such as Hyaluronic acid. Humectants and lipids are essential alongside your daily litre of water as they help your skin retain hydration, Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water and omega oils increase the level of water retaining lipids in the skin.

Hydrated cells are healthier cells; they look and function better. Look for a product containing hyaluronic acid or sodium hyaluronate. So many of my clients forget this essential step! Hydration means getting water into the skin cells, while moisturizing means locking it in there. To hydrate internally, drink plenty of water, eat foods rich in fatty acids and supplement your diet with fish oil or flaxseed oil. Also, try to avoid diuretics, simple sugars and caffeine.
