Skin dryness, dullness, and flakiness are common problems associated with dehydration. The problem can affect people of all ages. There can be a myriad of reasons your skin has become dehydrated and environmental factors can play a big part, as well as your everyday habits. Figuring out how to hydrate your skin can be a lot easier once you find the root cause!
Causes of Skin Dehydration
- Too hot showers.
- Exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
- Weather and seasonal changes.
- Lack of sleep.
- Poor skincare routines.
- Air conditioning.
- Lack of water.
Fortunately, there’s a solution to skin dehydration, and you can achieve radiant skin with an even tone. Here are three quick but highly effective approaches to restore your skin’s condition and hydrate your skin naturally.
Drink Adequate Water
It’s not uncommon to postpone drinking water until you feel thirsty. This is a habit that you need to try and avoid. Try drinking the recommended eight glasses of water daily. Avoid drinking excess alcohol and caffeine as this can help to dehydrate your skin. Remember that you may require more water depending on your occupation and daily activities.
Make Fruits Your Friend
Fruits contain high amounts of hydrating juices. They’re not only beneficial to your skin but your body as well. Fruits like lemons and oranges are rich in Vitamin C, which is crucial in maintaining the texture of the skin. Besides fruits, add vegetables and foods rich in Vitamin A and B3 in your diet.
Use Hydrating Skin Products
The skincare products you use can help either hydrate or dehydrate your skin. Consider using face oils if your skin is dehydrated. Argan, avocado and coconut oil work effectively to replenish the skin and remember to apply sunscreen before stepping out in the sun. We especially love Betty Hula Secret Wonder Oil it’s 100% natural and made with high-quality ingredients and is suitable for even the most sensitive of skin. The Secret Wonder Oil helps repair damaged cells, combat dryness, banish wrinkles and promote radiance!
Exfoliators help hydrate your skin
Exfoliating your skin is important to help remove dead skin cells. Once you remove dead skin cells this allows the skin to drink in hydration leaving your skin healthy, hydrated and soft.
Use skin cleansers and exfoliators to naturally revive dull and tired skin. We highly recommend using a muslin cloth to remove cleansers and face masks to gently exfoliate the skin.
Sintra Naturals body and face exfoliating cubes
Sintra Naturals body and face exfoliating cubes are a zero waste version of the typical face and body scrubs. The bulk of the exfoliation comes from bamboo stem powder which is very mild and rich in natural organic silica and does wonders for your skin.
What’s in the Body and Face Exfoliating Cubes
Bamboo powder is considered a natural dermabrasion without using any harmful tools.
Apricot kernel oil and lemon seed oil for moisturising and anti-inflammation.
Kaolin clay and rhassoul clay are well known for drawing impurities out gently.
Raspberry powder creates the rosy pink colour and is a power source of Vitamin C.
Orange and may chang essential oils give the cubes their fabulous scent.
The hardness from the cubes comes from stearic acid which is a natural derivative from butters and oils like shea and rapeseed oil.
How to use Body and Face Exfoliating Cubes:
Just take one or two cubes into the shower or bath and start massaging onto the skin and feel the exfoliation ..these are very mild exfoliating cubes so suitable for all skin types and from face to toe.
There’s no shortcut when it comes to skincare. If you want to hydrate your skin and to keep it looking soft and smooth, create a skincare routine. Incorporate adequate water intake, eat lots of fruits, and invest in high-quality moisturizing products.
