Having beautiful skin is not always easy, but there are some very simple rules to follow every day that can help. Hydration is the number one need for all skin. Beautiful skin needs to be perfectly hydrated daily. When it lacks water, the skin becomes dehydrated, and becomes uncomfortably tight (especially after cleansing).
What is the ideal routine to adopt for dehydrated skin?
To uncover smooth, plump and radiant skin, it is very important to moisturise your skin daily. Water is the life-giving element that is essential to our body and skin. It is the element that preserves the balance of cells and ensures the maintenance of sufficient hydration. There are different types of moisturisers that are appropriate depending on your skin needs. For example, opt for a moisturising perfector effect such as the Aquabella® Revealing Moisturising Beauty Emulsion, or for a long-lasting, anti-pollution moisturiser such as Moisturising Cream Crème Fraîche® de Beauté.
Pollution particles and heavy metals are also dehydrating to the skin, especially if you live in an urban environment. To avoid the effects of pollution on the skin, protect it with face care "shields" adapted to fight pollution particles on the skin's surface, such as Moisturising Cream Crème Fraîche® de Beauté that soothes and protects the skin.
For the most dehydrated skin, you must start your beauty routine by applying a hydrating serum under your day cream. Thanks to its high concentration of active ingredients, serums make it possible for creams that follow to absorb better, and to potentiate its benefits.
What positive habits can I adopt?
In addition to a good beauty routine adapted to your skin type and needs, it is also essential to adopt good habits.
First and foremost: drink enough water, to "rehydrate" your skin from the inside. By drinking enough water daily, your skin will be more plump and dehydration wrinkles that may appear under the eyes or other dehydrated areas will fade. Water is your best ally!
Second tip: try to avoid the factors that dehydrate the skin, such as sudden changes in temperature and excessive heating, especially in winter, or air conditioning in summer that will destabilise the water reserves of the skin and therefore dehydrate it.
However, water alone is not enough to keep beautiful skin well hydrated! Fatty acids also allow the skin to preserve its barrier function and thus limit the loss of water. These fatty acids can be brought to the skin both through skincare, such as vegetable oils that are rich, or by food, for example by consuming foods rich in good fats (unsaturated fatty acids) such as olive and rapeseed oils, avocado, oilseeds or oily fish such as sardines and mackerel.
By following these tips every day, your skin will boost its natural glow and softness!
