How to Hydrate Your Skin

Dry and itchy skin has the worst texture in the world. We spend a lot of time outside in cold weather or hot weather and our skin takes the barrage of all those elements. It also reacts badly if you’re not feeding at the right products, so if your skin hasn’t been hydrated in awhile, you are going to notice. 

 

When your skin is dry, tight or itchy, you’re going to be clamoring to hydrate it again so that you get that fresh and plump and healthy glow. There are some common symptoms of dry, itchy skin, but what you need to know is how to hydrate your skin so you can avoid them. The good news is that below we have six tips to help you to keep your skin as hydrated as possible.

  • Invest in a humidifier. You need to have one or two of these to sit around the house, perhaps one in the bedroom and one in the office that you spend time in during the day. Humidifier is a great way to add moisture into the air, and that’s what your skin will need. Please take a humidifier on your desk, or even next your bed to help stop your skin from drying out. It’s going to ensure that your skin feels plump and healthy. If you don’t have a humidifier in the office at work and you’re not allowed to bring one in for health and safety purposes, keep a hydrating facial mist on hand and spray it whenever your skin starts to feel a little dry or so sore.
  • Invest in a good water bottle. We are not going to tell you to drink water because you need water to survive and you already know that. But it is your best bet to keep your skin as hydrated as possible so buying a fancy water bottle is going to encourage you to do that. Eating water rich food such as watermelon, cucumber or apples can keep your skin looking hydrated and fresh and if you’re in the office you can keep a basket of apples on your desk. If you’re not a fan of plain water, add some mint or sliced up there to the temperature taste buds and give it a nice kick.
  • Make sure that your skincare is water-based. If you have skin that is prone to drying out, then you need to ensure that your moisturizer is a water-based one because not any old moisturizer will do. You also don’t want to slather on your moisturizer too thickly, because you still need your skin to breathe. The ingredients really do matter when it comes to keeping your skin moisturized, so choose one with hydration boosting properties. Hyaluronic acid can attract and hold up to 1000 times its own weight and water, which is why it’s being so widespread right now in so many skincare products. You can keep your skin feeling supple when you use this product with this ingredient.
  • Make sure that you’re using the right sequence of treatments. Speaking to a dermatologist, you can figure out which treatments and which products your skin needs to be able to re-hydrate and get it back to its best self. Doubling down on your hydration by treating your skin to hydro infusion skin treatment or a hydrotherapy facial is really going to help. It’s designed to rehydrate your skin, and the infusion skin treatment will target dull and dehydrated skin really easily. It’s actually the perfect treatment for all skin types. So you want to ensure that your skin is going to be glowing, and you can find plenty of these treatments in your local spa.
  • Don’t wash your face in the shower. This is going to feel like it goes against everything you’ve ever been told, but washing your face in the hot water of the shower is actually going to dry your skin out rather than hydrate it. Hot water will strip your skin of its natural oils, and hot showers, baths and saunas– while they are very tempting and comfortable – can dry out your skin and leave it feeling tight. What’s your body in hot water and then gradually move it to lukewarm water if that’s what you like but always avoid your face going into water that is too hot.

 

These tips should help you to better hydrate your skin so that it looks fantastic no matter what!
