Well Hydrated Skin is Beautiful
We all know how dry skin feels. It pulls and looks wrinkly and it’s not particularly beautiful. When the skin is dry, it means that soap or other alkaline cosmetic products have compromised this acidic mantle. The skin then becomes rough, irritated, and dehydrated.
Our skin comprises 3 main layers and a surface skin cell layer called stratum corneum. This is the part of the skin that we see and can touch. The stratum corneum is also covered by a slightly acidic mantle, protecting us from the environmental factors and from harmful bacteria and fungi. It is these two outermost layers that help our body to be hydrated inside out.
What can we do to have a well hydrated skin daily?
Hydration is not only about applying suitable moisturisers, it is also about staying hydrated. Skin gets most of the water which hydrates it from within our body. The water in the epidermis originates from the layers below. The water molecules move upwards and keep the surface cells hydrated.
Simple things to do to stay hydrated all year round
- Drink plenty of water. Both our skin and body need a constant source of water to function.
- Use a good quality moisturiser on your face and body to help your skin keep the water it needs.
- Avoid drinking too many drinks that contain caffeine or alcohol.
