Water is an essential element for the body. It constitutes 65% of the human body. Skin contains 70% water. Stored in the dermis thanks to Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid, its quantity decreases when the upper layer of the epidermis is reached. When water reserves decrease, skin lacks radiance, loses its elasticity and occasionally peels. To maintain good hydration, you need to bring moisture to your skin by taking care of it (through the application of a moisturizing cream and a moisturizing mask, for example) and by paying attention to what you eat and drink.
Do you need hydration tips to replump and smooth your skin? Find out how to properly moisturize your skin on a daily basis, with a perfectly tailored beauty routine.
How to moisturize your skin when it's hot
When temperature rises, the body expels heat through the skin. Water in the skin evaporates, the body's hydration dwindles, making your skin dehydrated. In the summer, this is particularly true during heat waves and can be accentuated during sports or after intense effort. The goal here is to understand how to naturally moisturize a very dehydrated skin with targeted and powerful skin cares. To meet the needs of thirsty skin, your special summer beauty routine should include the following products as a priority :
- A moisturizing cream in combination with a moisturizing serum for the face: these two products should be applied at the beginning of the day, and also in the evening to boost cell renewal.
- A moisturizing face mask: this moisturizing concentrate should be used once or twice a week, especially after a day at the beach or a day at the pool in the summer when skin has been put to the test.
The best foods to have well-hydrated skin
A moisturizing cream and a hydrating mask will provide a valuable resource to quench your moisture-starved skin. To boost the effectiveness of your skin care products, complement your beauty routine with a water-rich diet. Don't wait until you're thirsty to moisturize. Choose fresh fruits and vegetables, full of vitamins and nutrients. Citrus fruits, with more than 85% water, are rich in vitamin C. Excellent for health, this vitamin is also known for its healthy glow and anti-wrinkle effect. Sunflower, olive and wheat germ oils contain vitamin E, your best ally in slowing down cellular aging and preserving skin hydration. Vitamin A contained in egg yolk will help your body to hydrate from the inside. For skin, it will promote collagen synthesis. Final hydration tips? Drink water at room temperature, still or sparkling, plain or with a slice of lemon. The recommended amount: 1.5 liters of water during the day and up to 2.5 liters in summer. This is especially important in hot weather or if you practice a sport that requires sustained effort. Now that we've explained how to properly hydrate from the inside out, let us reveal how to properly hydrate your skin with a perfectly targeted beauty routine.
