THE IMPORTANCE OF HYDRATION FOR YOUR SKINOf course, your skin needs proper hydration just as much as your body. Why? The answer is simple--just like any other part of your body, your skin is an organ (the largest in our bodies, in fact) that requires adequate hydration to perform at its best.
Aside from just being fun, the Transcendence Collection focuses on Hydration.
Keeping your skin properly hydrated can help:
- Slow the aging process. Well, not every aspect of the aging process, but at least the visible signs of premature aging. Staying well hydrated can help maintain your skin’s elasticity and combat the appearance of those dreaded wrinkles.
- Improve the appearance of your skin. This one goes hand-in-hand with the point above. It probably comes as no surprise, but a lack of hydration can make your skin look dry, flaky, and tight. Not only does keeping skin moisturized help it appear more plump and supple, but it also helps address surface dullness by combating the buildup of dead skin cells.
- Rid your skin of toxins. When properly hydrated, your skin takes on a more radiant-looking glow. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for skin that’s lacking in the hydration department. That’s because your skin can’t rid itself of toxins without adequate hydration, resulting in irritation and inflammation.
- Fight oil and acne. While it may seem counterintuitive at first, dehydrated skin sends signals to the glands to produce more oil as a defense mechanism of sorts. By keeping skin well hydrated, it becomes less oily and acne tends to be less aggravated.
With those things in mind, try this on for size---did you know there’s a difference between hydrating products and moisturizing products? Sure, they may sound like the same thing, but that’s not the case. Hydrating products are formulated to help increase water content to the skin, ultimately resulting in a plumper appearance. Meanwhile, moisturizers help prevent skin’s water content from evaporating into the air. Simple, right? The facts are clear—even a little hydration can go a long, long way for the health and appearance of both body and skin.]]>
