Keeping your skin hydrated is one of the key ways to maintain a healthy looking complexion. However, what exactly does this entail?

There are two ways to hydrate your skin, from inside and from the outside. To get the best results, you’ve got to make sure to do both – then you’ll be well on the way to hydrated, supple skin.

Inside

Hydrating your skin from the inside means drinking plenty of water. We all know we’re meant to drink eight glasses of water a day, and while this figure isn’t scientifically validated, this is a good rule of thumb.

When you’re dehydrated, the body can divert water to essential organs, and cut off the supply to peripheral organs, such as the skin. This means if you don’t drink enough water, while your heart and brain may have enough to function, your skin will be first to suffer.

It’s just as important to avoid foods which cause water loss – such as salty foods, as well as alcohol, both of which have dehydrating effects.

Outside

This is means using a good moisturiser to relieve your skin. Most moisturisers only last a couple of hours, so it might be necessary to moisturise a few times a day to get maximum hydration. However, you can buy long lasting moisturisers which can keep your skin moisturised throughout the day. It’s just a case of shopping around and finding one that works for you.

There are also skin treatments that can help to rehydrate skin. Here at Natura we offer skin rehydration that can plump up complexion, making your skin firmer by lifting it from beneath. This helps with fine lines and wrinkles as well, helping you towards younger looking skin. Our multi-layer skin rejuvenation treatments can also give you a refreshed complexion.

Skin hydration is essential if you want healthy and glowing skin. Thankfully, a few small changes or simple treatments can go a long way to giving revitalised skin.
