What are the best ways to keep skin hydrated? Often, we think we’re on the ball doing everything we need to do, and then sometimes, we’ll catch a glimpse of ourselves and we’ll see how badly our skin needs a drink. So here’s some tips from the ever-knowledgable Natural Health Magazine…
HYDRATE FROM THE INSIDE OUT
H2O is the simplest and most accessible beauty saviour for dehydrated skin. Drink plenty of water to aid digestion and leave skin with a beautiful glow. Skin looks plumper when it’s more hydrated. Drink plenty of water so that the body can eliminate toxins effectively. When our body struggles to eliminate toxins through our digestive system, they can come out through our skin. So up your daily dose of H2O and you’ll soon notice a difference in your complexion.
GIVE SKIN AN AVOCUDDLE
Avocados are packed with healthy fats, vitamins and antioxidants which all work together to aid skin hydration whether you mash it, slice it or drink it in a smoothie. But have you ever added ‘smother it all over your face’ to that list? Avocado makes an amazing natural hydrating face mask. Simply mash some avocado flesh in a bowl, add a teaspoon of avocado oil and apply to your face for five minutes before washing off with lukewarm water. It’s a refreshing and nourishing face mask that is easy to make and very effective.
INVEST IN A HUMIDIFIER
Boost the moisture content in your home with a humidifer to help fight the battle against dry skin. Putting a humidifier in your bedroom will help to stop your skin from drying out. Humidifiers are good for your respiratory system and also help you sleep better. If you’re not catching the right amount of Zs each night, you can wake to dark circles and under eye bags – nightmare!
APPLY SOME HONEY
Raw honey which hasn’t been heat-treated or pasteurised is packed with antioxidants and healing compounds which are good for a range of beauty ailments – including a dry complexion. Honey is a natural humectant which means it is great at retaining and preserving moisture. Simply apply honey to dry skin, leave on for five minutes before rinsing off with warm water, and watch your problem patches soften as they become more hydrated.
