Keep Hydrated

Keep Hydrated

 

Water: 

Water is the first and most obvious ways to hydrate ourselves, while it hasn't been proven that increasing our water intake can improve the quality of our skin it's certainly feels like it does. We like to add frozen berries, or slices of cucumber and mint to our water to mix it up. We also recommend getting a water filter to limit your intake of chemicals. 

Moisturiser: 

Apply moisturisers when ever you can, they can help limit the signs of ageing, dry skin and improve the texture of your skin like no other. Regular moisturising will also pro-long the life of your tan and keep the skin from drying out and potentially discolouring from that dryness. We recommend applying moisturiser all over your body straight after a shower, and to your face morning and night (if not more). 

Sprays: 

Sprays or hydrating mists are perfect for an easy hydration boosts during the day. They won't ruin your make-up, can enhance and bring a glow to your face and really relieve your skin if you are exposed to air-conditioning or extreme weather. 

Weather: 

The elements can have a huge effect on drying out our skin and it's important to be prepared for them. Wear an SPF sunscreen everyday without fail, cover as much of your skin as possible when it's cold and change the products your using to accommodate for your climate. You may need a heavier moisturiser in winter and a lighter in summer. 

Showers: 

Although steaming hot showers feel like the best thing in winter it's also an easy way to de-hydrate your skin. Try to keep them cooler and always moisturise your entire body straight after. It's also a good idea to use a mild, fragrance free soap or body wash so you're not stripping your skin of it's natural moisture. 

Food: 

What you put in your body has a huge affect on everything, especially your skin. Try to eat more foods with Omega 3 oils like salmon, walnuts and dark green vegetables to assist your skin from the inside. You can also try taking a fish oil supplement. 

Masks:

While regularly applying moisturiser is great, your skin might need a heavy dose of hydration. Masks are a great way to hydrate skin fast and can be as easy as seeing what's in the fridge. Natural yoghurt, honey and even milk are great alternatives to expensive face masks. But if you need a heavy dose of hydration then we recommend the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask
