Hacks to keep yourself hydrated all day

Go soap free

Soaps can be harsh on the skin and actually strip away the natural oils making your skin dry and itchy. Pick soap-free cleansers and face wash that are mild on the skin.  If possible go for a moisturizing cream formula. Wash only twice a day.

Drink up

We all know the importance of drinking 8-10 glasses of water daily. But it is also important to divide it throughout the day rather than drinking it once or twice a day. Sipping water all through the day will keep giving bursts of moisturization to the skin keeping it fresh.

Essential Oils

Oils can help maximise the skin’s elasticity and replenish dehydrated skin, which is especially important during the cold winter months. Bio-Oil combines some of the most important skincare ingredients including vitamin A and E with Calendula, Lavender, Rosemary, and Chamomile oils

Face massage

Once in a while, it’s good to indulge in a facial massage with high-fat oils like coconut, almond, jojoba and olive oil. It boosts the blood circulation and nourishes the skin deeply.

Avoid being in AC for long

Air conditioners remove moisture from the air leaving it extremely dry. This deprives the skin of humidity causing it to feel dry and stretched. Avoid sleeping in extremely low temperatures and place a big bowl of water in your room to maintain humidity.

Exfoliate

Exfoliate your body with a decent scrub to remove all of the dead and dry skin cells as well as makeup residue. Spa Find Salt Brushing, from the Spa Find Heavenly Hydration range, is an invigorating spa treatment using Dead Sea salt to naturally exfoliate the skin. Salt Brushing is a delightful blend of salts and minerals with Vitamin E and Coconut Oil.

Eat healthy

Water-rich foods are good for the body and skin. Say nay to deep-fried food and feast on hydrating foods like green vegetables, cucumbers, tomatoes, watermelon, berries, cucumber, lettuce and bell peppers.

Refresh with a mist

Whether you are in the office or on the road, air conditioner, sun, dust, and pollution can rob the skin of moisture. Keep a hydrating mist handy so that you can spray to rejuvenate the skin on the go.

Step up your skincare at night

After removing makeup and the day’s pollutants from your skin, wash your face once again with a gentle cleanser. Quickly apply a heavier moisturizer, like the Overnight Mask by Clinique, which will sink into the skin throughout the night.
