This summer Anna provides us with some tips and recommendations to help keep your skin hydrated!
Hydration – Essential for our skin
Drinking an adequate amount of water daily is important for overall good health. Water aids digestion, circulation and absorption. So, how does drinking large amounts of water aid skin health? Studies have suggested drinking water gives you a radiant, healthy, younger looking complexion. On the contrary, others say it has no effect on skin’s appearance whatsoever.
Which is true?
The fact is, the skin is your largest organ. Like any other cells in the body, your skin cells are made up of water and without water, organs function sub optimally. If your skin is not getting sufficient amounts of water, your skin will dehydrate and become dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkles. As water is lost in large quantities every day, hydration is essential.
“The unfortunate truth about drinking water for optimal skin health is, water will reach all the other organs before it reaches the skin. Thus, it’s important to “apply” water to our skin. Application will not only show a visible difference in hydration, but it can also prevent wrinkles, shallow and tired skin!“ – Anna
What is the best way to add water to the skin?
A very important step to prevent dehydration is via use of a toner. Toners are not only responsible for balancing out the skins pH-level, but also to hydrate and prepare the skin for absorption of the following care product. The right toner can give your skin a healthy dose of essentials necessary to look younger, fresher, and smoother; right after cleansing and throughout the day. E.g. TONIQUE HYDRATANT.
Are you having a relaxing movie night or just enjoying a book at home? Use that time to pamper your skin with a mask: MASQUE HYDRO-SENSITIF is a highly concentrated mask and provides immense hydration; nourishing skin with valuable oils.
How do you boost your hydration levels in a short period of time?
Your best option is with a serum! Serums have higher concentrations of specialized active ingredients than care creams. The molecules in serums are smaller than those in a care cream and consequently, are formulated to penetrate deeply into the skin to deliver key ingredients. Moisturizers however, are formulated to nourish or to hydrate the skin by providing and rebuilding a protective barrier.
CONCENTRE HYALURONIQUE – How ofen and how to use?
You can apply CONCENTRE HYALURONIQUE serum under your care cream several times a week, even every day if you need to. The more dehydrated your skin, the more times you should use it. As CONCENTRE HYALURONIQUE is a concentrate, I recommend only using one drop of serum from the provided pipette. This will help you to measure the product accurately and consistently. If necessary, use another drop when applying to your neck and décolleté. CONCENTRE HYALURONIQUE is also suitable as an eye care. Apply one drop under and above both of your eyes, by using your ring finger and dabbing gently from the temples towards your nose.
Now is the perfect time to plump up your skin and restore your water reservoir for the summer!
Until next time,
