Hydration is essential for all aspects of life, including skin care. However, dealing with rough and dry skin is a pain. Luckily, you can read these effective ways to hydrate and moisturize your skin for helpful advice. Your skin will thank you!
Over-cleansing your skin will strip you of natural oils, microbiomes, and moisturizing barrier agents. This means you will experience dry or patchy skin. Luckily, you can avoid this by cleansing your skin twice a day (morning and night). However, if you engage in sweat-intensive activities, it’s fine to cleanse your body afterward. Make sure to apply a light moisturizer after bathing to replace the lost hydration.
From a general perspective, taking hot showers and baths would seem like they help dehydrated skin (after all, you are soaking in water). However, this isn’t the case. Hot water encourages moisture to flow from your skin and evaporate while bathing, thus dehydrating your skin. Fortunately, warm showers and baths (or even cool ones) are better than hot ones because they prevent too much moisture from leaving your body.
After bathing, don’t completely dry your skin. Instead, pat dry so that your skin remains slightly damp. As you apply your moisturizer, the leftover water and product will absorb into your skin. It also helps your body feel soft after cleansing!
Natural oils and hydrating creams will add moisture to your skin. That’s why it’s important to incorporate them into your daily routine! You can even add oils that serve specific functions. For example, a body massage ritual oil creates the ultimate high-frequency self-massage experience (or alternatively with a partner) as you set intentions around a specific issue. Use a soft touch, intentional love and full acceptance of where you are in the present moment, in the here and now. If doing self-massage, stay aware of your unique sensations, what/where feels the best for your unique body and brings you the greatest relief. Then spend more time on those areas regularly! With a partner, tune-in to their body language, reactions, vibrations or feedback to achieve the best results.
Or a cuticle oil benefit is that it heals damaged cuticles and skin. The oil promotes cellular regeneration while moisturizing nails and the skin around them.
