How to keep your skin hydrated in the colder season

With the colder months approaching, keeping your skin hydrated is more important than ever!

Water makes up more than 50% of us, so it’s no surprise that it’s one of the best things we can give to our body. While it’s important to replenish the large amounts of water we lose regularly, did you know that our skin is one of the last parts of our bodies to receive the water that we drink? This is why it’s important to hydrate our skin in other ways for its health and appearance.

Our skin is the largest organ of our body and needs proper hydration to perform its best, similar to any other organ. Lack of hydration can cause your skin to look dry, flaky, and dull. By keeping our skin hydrated, we slow down visible signs of ageing which allows our skin to look fresh, plump and glowy! Here are our best tips to keep your skin hydrated.


Keep an eye on your environment

While we know the colder temperatures can start to dry out our skin, we have to remember other factors that can play in. Hot showers and baths may be tempting during the chilly season, but they can play a huge role in drying out your skin. Minimise the damage by turning down the heat to something moderate and keeping your showers shorter. And once you hop out of the shower, take advantage of the damp skin to apply your moisturiser for maximum effect!


Skincare is key

Keep up the hydration at home with the right skincare. Ingredients matter when it comes to keeping your skin plump and fresh, so make sure to keep an eye on what’s in your moisturisers, serums, and cleansers. Look for skincare with hydration-boosting properties, such as hyaluronic acid which can attract and hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. It’s also important to find the right moisturising product to ensure all your efforts to hydrate your skin don’t go to waste. Think of it this way – it’s important to keep your skin hydrated to improve texture and skin elasticity but all that hydration won’t be protected from evaporating without being moisturised.
