Keeping Your Skin Hydrated Helps Keep a Youthful Look
A youthful, dewy look is a sign of great skin hydration. Different environmental factors can dry out your skin throughout your life. Harsh, cold temperatures, excessive heat, and health conditions can all make it more difficult to keep your skin hydrated.
A great skin care routine is one step you can take to make sure that you're replenishing with the hydration you need to maintain a healthy glow. For women, skin care can often depend on hormones and their body. Pregnancy, for example, means taking extra care of nutritional needs and paying attention to what goes in the body. Even hair dyes and topical creams are absorbed into the system, so it's essential during this time to find products that are healthy and natural.
Whatever stage or age, great hydration will help you retain a youthful glow.
Five Tips to Keep Skin Hydrated
Hydrated skin is often an outward sign of a healthy body. If you want to keep skin young and vibrant, the best approach is to pay great attention to your health, diet, and activities.
Here are five great tips that will help you see a big hydration boost in your skin's appearance.
Up Your Water Intake.
Hydration isn't just a topical situation. Your body needs water to function, and more water when you're pregnant. Your body also needs water to maintain healthy skin. Think of hydration as an inside/outside experience. It's not just what you put on your skin but also what you put in your body. If you're not a big fan of water, try infusing it with lemon or cucumber or your favorite fruit. You can also try warm water and lemon in the colder months.
Exfoliate Your Skin.
When skin is dry, it's difficult for even the best moisturizer and hydrator to penetrate well. Add exfoliation to your skin care routine on a regular basis, such as Belli's Fresh Start Pre-Treatment Scrub. This helps reveal new, clean â€‹skin with a smoother appearance.
Use a Great Hydrator.
Belli's Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator is an excellent choice for daily use because it's pregnancy safe and contains the Vitamin C your skin needs. For optimal results, use your hydrator daily.
Avoid Harsh Chemicals, Toxins, and Irritants.
The environment does so much to deplete the nutrients in our body. It can also steal the moisture from our skin. Be selective in the skin care and makeup products you use. More natural products are often better for sensitive skin and your skin type may not do well with certain scents or additives. You should also be aware of toxins and irritants in your environment, whether seasonal or locational. In winter months, this means making sure to wear proper protection against the elements and increasing your diligence on your skincare routine as needed. In the summer, it's essential to keep sun exposure to a minimum and use SPF products to help protect skin.
Add These Nutritional Musts to Your Diet.
Healthy skin starts with a healthy diet. Adding foods rich in Vitamin A and antioxidants can help your overall health and that includes the body's largest organ - your skin. We previously wrote about acne & your diet here.
Healthy, glowing skin is more than vanity. The way your skin looks is the best indication of your overall health. Taking care of your skin from the inside out will make a big difference in your mood and energy level, as well.
