Five Top Tips For Skin Hydration

13th October 2020

With winter just a few short weeks away, it’s more important now than ever to make sure that your skin is properly hydrated. Without this, you will be prone to dry skin and breakouts, and fine lines and wrinkles will appear more prominently… which nobody wants! Especially with constant masks on

So what can you do to keep your skin well hydrated, properly nourished and looking beautiful right the way through till spring? The answer, thankfully, is quite a lot and your first step towards healthy skin is making sure you drink enough water during the day.

Hydration comes from within, so make sure you’re drinking at least two litres of water a day (with an extra litre per hour of exercise you do to replenish lost liquid).

Also take a look at the skincare products you’re using and make sure you have some that prioritise hydration in your washbag, with ingredients including hyaluronic acid, glycerin, ceramides and panthenol.

And, although it might well be chilly outside and you may want to warm up quickly, avoid taking long hot showers over the coming months, as this can really dehydrate your skin. If possible, go for lukewarm water and your skin will really thank you for it.

You can also give your skin a real boost at this time of year if you use a weekly face mask. The party season is just ahead of us and this can really take its toll, so give your skin a much-needed treat by applying a hydrating face mask once a week.
