Healthy Skin: Lock Up Your Moisture

Ways to keep your skin hydrated

 

Water Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Water helps to hydrate the skin and remove toxins from the system. I drink more than 7 litres of water daily :)

Vitamin A Consume plenty of Vitamin A! Vitamin A helps to prevent your skin from becoming dry and scaly. It is also essential in the cell renewal process and promotes growth of new skin. Vegetables such as spinach and broccoli are rich in Vitamin A.

Vitamin E Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that is well-known for its high antioxidant potentials. Vitamin E can be found in many types of food. Olives, nuts and vegetable oils such as corn oil, peanut oil and sunflower oil are wonderful sources of Vitamin E. One of nature’s best sources is from the tiny wheat germ. To ensure a healthy dose of Vitamin E in your diet, include loads of leafy vegetables and fish. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, Vitamin E also benefits the skin most as a skin conditioner, soothing rough and dry skin and protecting our skin cells through its antioxidant properties.

Do not smoke or drink Cigarettes and alcohol dehydrate the skin.

Moisturize Dry skin can cause wrinkles to form. Use gentle cleansers and always apply moisturizer after cleansing your face. Select a suitable moisturizer that not only hydrates your skin but also prevent signs of ageing.

Sleep Lack of sleep can dry up your skin. Get at least 8 hours of sleep daily to keep your skin healthy.

Sunscreen Always apply a good sunscreen!

  5. I love getting free trials for things and I have a couple go to websites that I use to seek these things out. I stumbled upon a good one this time. I’ve heard of Belisi skin cream after watching Oprah. Turns out they are giving out free samples. Lucky day!!
