You probably know that every part of your body — every tissue, cell and organ — needs water to survive. Keeping your body hydrated is key to maintaining its temperature, delivering nutrients to all parts of your body, preventing infections and ensuring that all organs function properly.
What you may not realize is that your skin needs hydration, too. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and when it’s hydrated, it can flush out toxins. This improves your complexion, increases skin elasticity, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and combats oiliness.
Want to learn more about taking great care of your skin? Follow these 7 tips for keeping your skin hydrated:
Tip 1: Drink Water
Make drinking water a part of your daily routine. The amount of water a body needs differs from person to person, but most people require at least 6-8 glasses of water each day, sometimes more.
Tip 2: Eat Foods That Are High In Water
Eating foods that have high water content can improve the condition of your skin. Avocados, watermelon, celery, tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables all contain water that can leave your skin looking and feeling its best.
Tip 3: Use A Humidifier
Especially in the winter months when the air is dry, using a humidifier can add the needed humidity your skin needs so it doesn’t dry out.
Tip 4: Apply Sunscreen
When your skin is damaged by the sun, it can be difficult to retain moisture. Apply sunscreen whenever you are outside – even on cloudy days – to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays that cause dryness and even skin cancer.
Tip 5: Get A Facial
A facial, particularly a HydraFacial, rejuvenates and protects the health of your skin with immediate results and long-term benefits. Pure Vive Med Spa’s HydraFacials use patented technology to cleanse, extract and hydrate, restoring your skin to its healthiest state.
Tip 6: Use Trusted Skincare Products
It’s important to use quality skincare products that are just right for your skin type or phase of life. These products lay the foundation for consistent skin care, preventing problems or alleviating them before they become bigger problems. Ask us about our ZO Skin Health products that come in combinations and kits, or individual products designed to prevent, correct and protect. This comprehensive array of products maintains the results of therapeutic treatments, supports daily skin health and protects your skin from the environment.
Tip #7: Consider IV Rehydration And Nutrition Therapy
This type of IV therapy is a great way to improve skin health from the inside out. It can detox the body, decrease inflammation and provide instant hydration. At Pure Vive Med Spa, our specifically formulated blends replenish fluids and rehydrates.
