We are proud of you for consuming those 3.5 Litres of water, you go girl! But here’s the thing, if you’re looking at attaining that glowing skin, only water isn’t going to cut it. We all want that wonderful natural glow that comes from within. Here’s the secret, there’s a lot more that goes into the radiant glow, even externally. Yep, you got that right. If you want to know how to hydrate your skin and make it glow to the gods, you’re in the right place.
How Important Is It To Hydrate Your Face?
We understand how this could be a little confusing but let us make this easy- peasy for you. You know how our body needs H20 to function properly, right? Similarly our skin (also our largest organ btw) needs hydration to function.
If your face feels dry, flaky, and has an uneven texture, you probably have dehydrated skin. As opposed to a hydrated face that appears more plump, healthy and youthful looking. If you think your skin is dehydrated, look for these signs:
- Skin looks dull because of the layer of dead skin that is left on your skin
- Looks oily but feels dry because of the inadequate moisture retention
- Your skin is more sensitive to... everything!
- Dry and flaky skin all the way? That’s it.
- Noticeable lines and wrinkles
If you’ve ticked those boxes, read on to find out some easy ways to hydrate your skin:
Use A Gentle Cleanser Before Moisturizing
The first step in your morning and evening skincare routine is to cleanse your skin. Use a gentle hydrating cleanser, maybe something without alcohol? Avoid washing your skin with hot water or cleansing it too many times a day because that will make your skin all the more prone to dehydration.
Choose The Right Moisturizer For Your Face
Whether you have dry skin, oily skin, combination skin or sensitive skin- pick a moisturizer that has hydrating ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid, Retinol or even Vitamin C that makes your face look fresh, plump and reduces the fine lines and wrinkles.
Go For A Serum
Think beyond a moisturizer, choose a hydrating serum. Serums are the heroes when it comes to skin hydration. Generally, serums are applied after cleansing but before moisturizing and can be used day and night. The Chemist At Play Hydrating Face Serum is one of the best hydrating serums for all skin types. It is known for its mega strength to replenish dull and dehydrated skin. The perfect combination of Hyaluronic acid and Niacinamide acts effectively, seeps into the deeper layers for hydration and makes your skin look plump and gives a hydrating glow.
Pamper Yo-Self With A Facemask
This one’s a treat right? Easy skincare, hydrated skin and a myriad of other benefits. Choose the right formula when it comes to face masks, and you’re all set.
Use An Eye Cream
Did you know that the skin around your eyes is the most fragile part of your body? Give it some extra loving with all that TLC and invest in the right eye cream.
Careful Food Consumption
Great work with those 8 glasses of water, keep at it. Also add Vitamin C and Vitamin E rich foods into your diet for a naturally glowing and hydrated skin.
