Hydrated skin in 5 steps
Keeping your skin well hydrated is the cornerstone of any beauty routine, whether your skin is dry, oily or combination.
Through proper hydration, in fact, it is possible to prevent various imperfections and skin aging.
This is why deep hydration is essential for the well-being of any skin type, especially the most delicate one.
Let's see together what are 5 steps to apply to keep our skin always properly hydrated.
The worst habit is to go home and not take off your make-up.
Nothing like makeup, smog and clogged pores cause all sorts of blemishes on your skin.
We are always inclined to see the moment of cleansing as one of the most uncomfortable, instead of cleaning the face with micellar lotions o detergents should be considered as the essential step of every beauty routine.
A skin that is properly cleansed daily makes the difference: it shines, better incorporates the active ingredients of subsequent treatments and stays young.
Not only can dead cells be eliminated on the surface, but we guarantee greater success and longer lasting benefits to the moisturizing textures applied later.
Over time, the surface cells of the skin lose firmness and the face tends to appear more opaque: by applying moisturizers, the skin of the face will appear healthier, seductive and velvety.
However, moisturizing your face with any cream is not good, it would be like providing energy to the body by eating any food: you need to discover the ingredients that really nourish it and in the most correct way for your skin.
Some skins, in fact, will need more consistent hydration and nourishment, while others need a cream with a lighter and less intrusive texture.
Do the test to find out what type of skin you have to satisfy her needs in the right way!
To keep our skin smooth and soft, it is necessary to apply a nourishing mask on the face at least once a week.
There are also all kinds of moisturizing masks, those to be spread with a brush, those in fabric up to those do-it-yourself.
Moisturizing face masks help to maintain the necessary moisture in the skin both from a preventive point of view and as a remedy against skin dehydration. The latter, in fact, is responsible for many of the most hated skin blemishes.
The benefit that face masks provide to your skin is twofold: on the one hand they supply the tissues with water, on the other they try to prevent the so-called perspiratio insensibilis, which is none other than the inevitable loss of water through the skin pores.
It is very important to associate a healthy and balanced diet with the treatments already mentioned, knowing which foods are best suited to ensure the health of our skin (read more in this article).
It is also necessary to include in our diet foods rich in water, vitamins and antioxidants, such as fruit, raw vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seafood, as well as "fatty" fish, such as salmon.
Water, water, water!
Drinking a lot throughout the day is essential for keeping your skin hydrated!
If you have a hard time remembering to drink, then always keep a bottle in your bag or on your desk and take small sips throughout the day. In the colder months you can fill it with an herbal tea or tea sweetened with a spoonful of honey. In the hot ones, on the other hand, you can flavor the water with cucumbers, sage, rosemary or all red fruits.
