4 Ways To Keep Your Skin Hydrated

  1. Drinking plenty of water is the most obvious answer, but diet and supplements are a key factor in your skin’s hydration levels as well. Eat plenty of fruits and veggies with high water content like watermelon, cucumber, and cantaloupe, and be sure to reach for supplements like Vitamin E, Evening Primrose Oil, and Fish Oil, all of which can help relieve dry and itchy skin by keeping skin cells well protected with antioxidants. Taking probiotics, which act as an anti-inflammatory in the gut, can also help with dry skin conditions, many of which are caused by inflammation.
  2. Avoid skin care products containing alcohol. Alcohol is used in skin care products to make them lighter and thinner. Consequences of using alcohol based products include dryness and erosion of the surface of the skin over time.
  3. Avoid prolonged sun exposure - sun damage not only causes aging, wrinkles and pigmentation problems, but it is also a major source of dehydrated skin.
  4. Load up on moisturizers & serums with hydrating ingredients proven to work. We love SkinMedica’s HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator and Zerafite’s Soothing and Calming Moisturizer.
