Top 3 Hacks on how to Hydrate your Skin Faster
To maintain the appearance of glowing skin and reduce imperfections such as adult acne, skin hydration is very important. Our skin is our first line of defence acting as a barrier against external irritants and toxins. Our surface layer of skin cells prevents them from penetrating our skin causing inflammation and infection – however we can only maintain this barrier by ensuring that our skin is hydrated.
When our skin is dehydrated our skin cells shrink and their function as a barrier is impaired causing it to look dull, rough, and overall, less resilient. Dry skin increases the likelihood of blemishes and adult acne breakouts on our face, as our skin is unable to resist against bacteria and our body increases oil productions to make up for the lack of hydration.
To maintain the appearance of natural glowing skin and prevent issues of adult acne, check out our top 3 hacks on how to hydrate your skin faster below!
Ain’t nothing more hydrating than water itself!
One of the simplest things you can do to hydrate your skin lies within a simple lifestyle change. Drink more water!
When it comes to repairing the skin, a lot of people think they can solve this by putting on more skincare products on their face to maintain hydration – WRONG!
This usually leads to unnecessary shopping and slathering excessive amounts of moisturisers or oils on our face to make up for their dehydration, which can actually be bad for the skin. When it comes to hydration we have to remember, it is all about water. To hydrate our skin faster and preserve our natural glow, it is important to increase water consumption – to look hydrated, we need to give our body what it needs to stay hydrated.
Increasing how much water you drink is an excellent way of hydrating your skin faster within a couple of days – however, for a long-lasting glow, you need to be aware of what you put into your body for the long term. Things like coffee and alcohol should be avoided or replaced with drinking water. These kinds of beverages can cause your body to be dehydrated, impacting the appearance of your skin.
Serums and Face Oils
Serums and face oils contain active ingredients and are rich in vitamins which cater to a variety of skin-related issues. Most commonly, a lot of serums assist in hydrating the skin or further boost the hydrating effects of moisturisers or other related products. This is because, dehydration is a main cause of many skin issues such as adult acne or dull toned skin.
As part of a quick fix to hydrate your skin faster, look for serums or facial oils that contain ingredients such as hyaluronic acid which assists in retaining water to keep our skin tissue moist or jojoba and avocado oil which also have a hydrating and soothing impact.

Using the right products for YOUR face
