Keeping yourself hydrated every day? Then why not your skin?
We all know that staying hydrated and drinking lots of water is vital for health (congrats if you make it to 8 glasses of water a day). However, simply drinking water won’t flush away all your skin problems. It’s equally important to hydrate your skin from the outside and then seal that plump and healthy glow with a moisturiser. Sounds a bit confusing? Let’s dive into this further.
Why is hydrated skin important?
Skin that’s not hydrated enough tends to become dry and flaky over a period of time. If that wasn’t enough, dehydrated skin is also more prone to fine lines and wrinkles, and as a result of dryness, the skin starts looking dull and rough.
Moisturisation ≠ Hydration
First things first. It’s important to understand that moisturisation is not equal to hydration.
Post the age of 25, the water level of your skin drops to about 50% making it look dry and tired (fun fact: baby skin has 75% water content). Hydrating helps in increasing the water level in your skin by getting into the deep layers of the skin (for baby soft skin).
Whereas moisturisation helps to lock in moisture and battles your skin’s top layer of dryness.
What does hydration exactly do?
Let’s understand what “it’s important to hydrate your skin” is all about:
1. Healthy and radiant skin: It comes as no surprise that a hydrated skin is also a radiant looking skin. Combat your dry, flaky and dull skin by hydrating it, and reveal more plump, supple and healthy skin.
2. Slows the skin’s aging process: The early visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles can be slowed down by keeping your skin well hydrated.
3. Keeps skin oil-free: Dehydrated skin tends to produce more oil to combat dryness (defense mechanism I tell you). So, there is no science here, that keeping your skin hydrated also fights oily skin and prevents acne. It’s a win-win!
Say hello to hydrated and glowing skin.
It’s important to nurture and care for your skin, every day. Simple ingredients (which are also Mother Nature’s gift to us), can help you fight dehydrated skin.
Let’s take a minute to appreciate what a blessing Aloe Vera is!
Aloe Vera is known for its natural moisturisation properties. Since aloe gel is mostly water, it seeps into the skin effortlessly and hydrates it without leaving any post-greasy feeling.
The cooling properties of the gel also helps to soothe dry and irritated skin. This also makes it the perfect summer skincare ingredient.
For hydrated skin from AM to PM, try the Radiance Day Crème which is enriched with pure aloe vera gel and 24-hour hydro lock (bye-bye dry skin).
With SPF 15 for sun protection, this is your go-to cream for skin that’s healthy and radiant.
Developed by dermatologists, this paraben and chemical-free cream is suitable for all skin types.
If you’re looking at trying some real aloe gel to replenish your dry skin, then the Light Aloe Vera Gel is for you. It is packed 99% pure aloe vera gel for 100% refreshed and hydrated skin. Don’t forget to apply it generously around your neck area as well.
And if you’re traveling and venturing out in the sun often, then these Gentle Cleansing Face Wipes are a must-have in your bag. Developed by dermatologists, each face wipe is enriched with pure aloe, mint oil and green tea extract which gently cleanses dirt and oil from your skin, leaving it instantly fresh and hydrated. It’s that simple!
