Keep your skin hydrated for younger-looking skin. Find out how HydraFacial in Woodlands can help you get that glowing skin.

Hydration is the key to younger-looking skin. If the skin is not properly hydrated, it will dry out and wrinkle. Skin cells are constantly dying and being replaced.

Is it necessary to hydrate your skin?

HydraFacial The Woodlands TXThe key to younger-looking skin is hydration. It is essential to keep skin hydrated because it will help maintain the skin’s elasticity. The outer layer of the skin, called the epidermis, can lose water and become dry and dehydrated. This can lead to wrinkles and fine lines on your face.

Hydrating the skin can be done in a variety of ways. Alternatively, you can try HydraFacial, a deeply hydrating, nourishing, and detoxifying facial.

For a deeply hydrating, detoxifying, and nourishing facial that’s safe for even the most sensitive skin, consider booking a HydraFacial® in Woodlands.

How do I keep my skin hydrated?

Many things can make your skin dry. It is hard to keep your skin hydrated from pollution and the cold weather. However, there are a few ways you can try to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. 

1. Drink more water. 

Chugging water won’t turn back the clock for a decade, but consistently doing so will improve your skin’s appearance. Keep hydrated and healthy by drinking at least eight glasses of water a day. According to studies, getting the recommended amount of water for your body increases the dermal layer, making your skin hydrated. Water can do amazing things for your skin and your overall health, from helping it maintain elasticity to reducing wrinkles and fine lines. As you age, your body has a more challenging time retaining water, so by drinking more water, you help yourself, and your skin remains hydrated.

2. Switch to a gentle cleanser. 

Cleansers that are too stripping of your natural oils can cause your skin to dry out and become inflamed. One of the best ways to keep your skin hydrated is to use a gentle cleanser that will not strip away all of your natural oils. Get a gentle cleanser designed to have a similar pH as the skin. They help protect the skin barrier while removing dirt and oil.

3. Exfoliate regularly. 

While it may seem counterintuitive, exfoliating regularly will keep your skin moisturized. Exfoliating dry skin is essential in keeping it hydrated and healthy, as it removes dead skin cells and unclogs the pores. Exfoliating the skin increases the rate of skin regeneration, resulting in improved tone and texture. Additionally, it allows skincare products such as toners, serums, and moisturizers to penetrate the skin more effectively. Just make sure that you do not overdo exfoliation.

4. Use hydrating toners. 

After washing your face, the toner removes any last traces of dirt, grime, and impurities left in your pores. Adding hydrating toners to your daily skincare routine and using it regularly can significantly impact the appearance and tightness of your pores (yeah, aging skin). Avoid toners are that are alcohol-based, as these could be drying to the skin. 

5. Ditch hot showers and baths.

Using hot water to clean your skin can strip skin of its natural oils and lipids. Baths and showers that are too hot encourage your skin to sweat and evaporate, thus dehydrating your skin. It robs the skin of its natural defense mechanism.

6. Apply sunscreen.

Did you know that constant sun exposure dehydrates your skin? This dehydrates your skin, causing moisture loss and breakdown of collagen and elastin, proteins responsible for strength and elasticity. Don’t forget to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen to prevent UVA and UVB skin damage. 

7. Reduce caffeine and alcohol intake.

Caffeine and alcohol cause your skin to lose water, causing tightness and dehydration. You should limit your caffeine and alcohol intake to two cups of coffee and one glass of wine a day to minimize their effect on your skin.

8. Consider getting a HydraFacial Treatment.
