We all have heard about the importance of keeping your skin hydrated throughout the year, especially when winter comes around. If your skin is not properly hydrated, it will translate into a premature aging, early appearance of wrinkles or sagging. Also, dehydrated skin can cause skin breakdown.
What Causes Dehydrated Skin?
There are multiple reasons why your skin might be dehydrated, one of them might be due to factors such as traveling too much, your diet or smoking. Stress in your life can have a powerful impact on your skin since when your body is under pressure, it releases a higher amount of cortisol which decreases your ability to retain water.
That being said...
What can we do to maintain hydrated skin?
1. Drink more water
We are all tired of hearing how much water you should be drinking or how little we actually drink, but the truth is that water makes your skin soft and smooth. If it is not easy for you to get at least the minimum amount of water, you can always try to implement into your diet fruits and vegetables that contain water such as watermelon, pineapple or lettuce or make smoothies using a lot of fruits and veggies. Adding some fruits to your water bottle can be a great way to add more flavor to your water.
2. Implement collagen in your diet
Did you know that collagen can plump your skin? Collagen is a protein that plays an essential role in the skin physiology. Actually, collagen can be found in numerous foods since it is found in the connective tissues of animals. That's why foods such as chicken skin, fish, pork or beef are the perfect way to get your collagen.
3. Use sunscreen all year around
Perhaps you think that you should only apply sunscreen when you are on holiday or in the summer season. However, that is a big myth. If you want to have a glowy, radiant looking skin, you should use sunscreen on a daily basis.
Most importantly due to health reasons, since it helps reduce the possibility of developing skin cancer, but also because the exposure of ultraviolet rays accelerates the appearance of wrinkles and ultimately damages your skin. The sun causes your skin to lose its hydration, elasticity and softness, so a SPF sunscreen is highly recommended.
4. Take care of your diet
They say “you are what you eat” and this is actually true. The food you consume on a daily basis plays a huge role in the way your skin looks. If you consume lots of processed foods, this is going to be reflected immediately in your skin in the form of spots, redness or breakouts. By eating high nutrients foods you are helping your skin to get the vitamins and water it needs.
5. Moisture your skin with the suitable products
We know that using a moisturizer in the mornings and at nights is essential to keep your skin looking rejuvenated. However, if your moisturizer is not catered to your skin type, then you're probably not getting the benefits.
We recommend you to go to your dermatologist or a skin care specialist so they can do an evaluation of your skin and tell you your skin type (oily, mixed, dry..). This will help you get the best moisturizer for your skin and finally you can get all of its benefits.
6. Use Hyaluronic Acid skin care products
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a substance that occurs naturally in the body throughout connective, epithelial, and neural tissues. It acts as a tissue lubricant and plays a role in cell proliferation and differentiation.
Hyaluronic Acid holds up to 1000 times its weight in water - which explains why one of its first uses as a supplement was as a component in beauty products. It has a lot of great benefits for your skin and your appearance, you can read more about the many benefits of using Hyaluronic Acid.
It totally can be paired well with other ingredients that are in some skincare products. It’s tolerated with any skin type and helps with the integration into a skincare routine.
7. Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Injectable Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers are the key for getting even bigger results.By injecting this product into your skin, it will provide the hydration it needs, as well as incredible results such as volume increase, lift sagging and ultimately creating a rejuvenated and plump-looking skin.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers have been chemically cross-linked to allow the body's natural enzymes to slow down the normal breakdown of HA. Their ability to remain in place for a long period of time makes them ideal products to add volume, hydrate, and treat fine lines and wrinkles. Moreover, these products can help to get hydrated skin faster without much effort and in a non-invasive manner.
