SKINCARE FROM THE INSIDE TIP #1 – Keep Hydrated
When it comes to caring for our skin, most of us devote a significant amount of time to following regular cleansing and moisturizing routines – which is fair enough really given the skin is our largest organ! But, have you ever thought about taking care of your skin from the inside?
Our skin reflects the health of our body internally and can show signs of common ailments like deficiencies, dehydration & lack of sleep very easily. This month Botáni will be looking into what steps you can take to look after your skin from the inside, beginning this week with hydration!
When it comes to achieve healthy, supple, glowing skin you really can’t look any further than hydration. We’ve all heard the recommendation that we should have eight glasses of water a day, and given that 60% off our body mass is water its little wonder that we should be trying to follow this rule.
But why is drinking water so important for the health of your skin? Most importantly, water is a major component of the cells in our skin and regular replenishment helps to ensure that skin stays soft, supple and smooth. Ensuring that skin remains adequately hydrated also has the benefit of reducing the onset of fine lines and wrinkles.
Water also has some other nifty tricks up its sleeve, including its ability to help “flush out” your system, providing a natural detox which can assist in restoring glowing skin. Water also helps to regulate your body temperature via perspiration, which helps to clear pores of dirt and toxins that can lead to breakouts – pretty cool!
So now you’re committed to hydrating your skin on the inside why not give a little helping hand! Your skin can dry out very easily when exposed to the elements (think wind, sun) but can also become dehydrated from hours spent in the office under airconditioners or heaters. For a quick skin fix, try Botáni’s Soothing Facial Mist. The super refreshing mist contains Beta-Glucan, a super star active that absorbs quickly into the skin to provide much needed hydration. The beautiful, delicate floral notes of Rose Damascena in the Soothing Facial Mist provide an indulgent treat for any time of the day that you’re skin needs a little pick-me-up.
There’s no more need to put up with dull, dry & dehydrated skin now, get hydrating and see the benefits it can have for your skin!
