What is the secret to glowing, smooth skin? The answer: skin hydration and looking after your body from the inside out.
Skin hydration is essential for achieving a glowing, plumped up complexion. Whilst many of us are diligent about religiously applying skincare potions to our faces, often we can forget to pay attention to the rest of our body. The right products and drinking enough water are essential for keeping your skin nourished enough so that it stays hydrated throughout the day. Skin hydration will not only improve skin elasticity, but will also improve your skin’s overall health and appearance. Discover our guide for how to hydrate skin and enjoy deeply nourished and smooth skin all year round.
Step 1: Exfoliate
Hydrated skin isn’t achieved just by applying moisturiser every day, there are other steps to consider if you want to achieve maximum skin hydration. It is important that prior to applying your daily moisturiser, you properly prep your skin so that you can get the most out of your skincare products. You should aim to exfoliate your body twice a week, three times at max, to unclog your pores and remove dead skin cells. Dead skin becomes like a barrier to your products so they are not able to sink in as easily, therefore scrubbing your skin a couple of times a week helps moisturisers to penetrate deeper into the skin leaving you with smoother and more hydrated skin.
Step 2: Choose Hydrating Skin Care Ingredients
Make sure that you are incorporating products that are actually tailored to your specific skin requirements. Establish the best ingredients for skin hydration and include these into your routine. Here, we give you the lowdown of the best ingredients for how to keep skin hydrated.
