This could probably go without saying but:
You need to moisturise your skin.
Without proper hydration, your skin can become dull, itchy, and inflamed. Improper hydration can lead to early aging of the skin, with issues such as sagging and wrinkles. But it’s more than that, too: Moisture plays a vital role in barrier function, one of the organ’s most important duties—without it, your skin isn’t as protected from external aggressors.
Now we’ve gotten that out of the way, here’s the good news: It’s easy to keep your skin hydrated. Here are four effective ways to keep your skin hydrated:
1. Switch to a gentle cleanser.
One reason your skin may be feeling dry is because your cleanser is too stripping of your natural oils. It’s natural to want an effective cleanser to help you remove makeup, excess oil, or daily debris, but often we can go a bit overboard.
Medik8 Calmwise Soothing Cleanser has been specifically designed for redness-prone skin. Infused with calming, strengthening and conditioning actives, it helps to soothe sensitivity and improve skin health.
2. Use a hydrating toner or essence.
Using a toner is somewhat controversial, considered optional by some yet essential to others. While toners are not mandatory per se, the right one can enhance the effects of your skin care regimen.
Medik8 Press and Glow helps to create a perfected skin surface which is not only better at absorbing active ingredients like vitamin C and A, but also creates a better base for makeup. It helps to gently lift the appearance of hyperpigmentation and can brighten the skin surface. The complexion is left visibly glowing, soothed and toned. The overall health of the skin is visibly maximised.
3. Drink some more water
No, chugging water isn’t going to reverse the clock a decade, but doing so consistently will improve the appearance of the skin. Studies have shown that getting the recommended amount of water for your body increases the dermal layer, thereby making your skin more hydrated.
4. Eat a balanced diet
If you want moisturized, plump skin you should be mindful that you are eating water-dense, high-fat, antioxidant-rich, hydrating foods known for their complexion-changing properties. If you feeling a bit on the dryer side of late, consider using Bestow Collagen Boost powder.
Most people don’t get enough of the nutrients they need to make collagen. This powder boosts your supply of collagen building blocks in a form that is easily used by the skin.
