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!

Our skin is exposed to damaging environmental stresses, pollutants and free radicals on a daily basis which cause dehydration and pre-mature skin ageing. Skin becomes dry and uncomfortable with a sense of tightness.
What is your current skin condition?
Two or more ticks to the above symptoms describe your current skin condition?
Fret not! I’ll be updating on ways to keep your skin hydrated this coming Friday :)
Feel that your skin is lackluster and short of its usual glow? Overworked, extra hours, air conditioning and stress? Vitamin C is a fantastic natural antioxidant known for its ability to kick-start your skin’s dull, lacklustre engine. It helps to protect your skin against environmental aggression and is definitely needed for a healthy body. As an ingredient, Vitamin C is also able to neutralize free radicals that attack your skin cells which cause harm.
Five Benefits of using Vitamin C
Antioxidant Protection Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect against free radical damage caused by sun, pollution and cigarette smoke which damage the structure and appearance of the skin.
Enhance Radiance Vitamin C helps to refresh the skin and promotes skin radiance and smoothness.
Evens Skin Tone Vitamin C evens out skin tone and appearance.
Boost Collagen Production Vitamin C encourages the production of collagen in the skin which gives skin its smooth, firm and healthy looking appearance.
Improves Skin Elasticity Overexposure to the sun causes long term damage to the skin, resulting in a loss of elasticity and wrinkling. Vitamin C is crucial to the synthesis of various components necessary for the assembly of elastic fibres. Vitamin C helps build and maintain the skin’s structure, helping it to protect itself from within.
With Vitamin C, smooth, firm and healthy glowing skin will be the permanent change you’re seeking to find in your life giving that extra radiant boost you need for your skin :)
Knowing what your skin type is and what to apply on is important ~ Skin Care Regime.
What’s also equally important is what you put into it. In life, compromises are an easy way out but it should not be the case for your skin. There’s no doubting that the skin is the largest organ of the human body. Its main function is to protect our organs and also the first to show our health level and the effects of the environment and the sun. You need to know how to have a good nutritional defense plan to nourish your skin from the inside. Everybody needs a little nudge sometimes. Even your skin!
I will be introducing some nutritional tips to keep your skin healthy over the next couple of weeks :)
