Is your skin dehydrated?

From Flickr user likeablerodent

The largest organ of the body is the skin, and it is important to keep it hydrated. Drying out and lacking moisture is part of the skin’s aging process. Although there are lots of products on the market to help revive, add plump and moisture to the skin, nothing beats fighting dry skin from the inside out by drinking more water.

Your skin is dehydrated(lacking water not oil) if:

1) It looks dull and lacks color.

2) The skin has lots of fine lines that are visible due to dehydration.

3) Your t-zone area(nose, forehead) looks dry

4) You pull your skin and it doesn’t bounce back right away due to lack of elasticity.

5) Skin feels extremely tight.

6) Dryness occurs right after washing your face.

How to keep your skin hydrated

Drink more water, at least 8 glasses.

Stay away from alcohol and caffeine

Be sure to use a cleanser that is right for your skin, that doesn’t strip the natural oil from your skin.

Use cold water when washing your face.

Eat fruits with anti-oxidants, such as berries.

Moisturize

Now drink up…water that is, and go out there and be the force of beauty you truly are.
