Tightness, itching, redness… these are the signs that show that your skin is suffering from dehydration. To remedy this, a few changes are enough! By adopting the right gestures, your skin will be more resistant to external aggressions and your skin barrier will retain more water. In this article, we reveal the right beauty routine to follow to maintain good skin hydration!
- Hydrate your skin from within
Do you often feel discomfort on your skin but can't tell the difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin ? In the latter case, your skin needs a good dose of hydration. This will allow you to maintain your skin in perfect condition. To do this, you must start by hydrating yourself well from the inside by drinking at least 1.5 liters of water a day. In hot weather and during intense physical activity, water needs increase. It is therefore necessary to increase the dosage by drinking about 2 to 2.5 liters per day. It is better to drink waters rich in minerals for better hydration of the body.
It is also recommended to favor foods rich in water, such as watermelon, tomato, cucumber, semi-skimmed milk and fresh cheeses. This allows you to regularly nourish your skin from within.
- Exfoliate the skin regularly
The very basis of good hydration is deep cleansing of the skin. Otherwise, the epidermis will struggle to retain water. Especially since moisturizers will not be able to penetrate effectively on poorly cleansed skin. For this, it is advisable to exfoliate your skin once or twice a week to remove dead skin. We recommend our AHA exfoliating gel which combines the action of enzymatic exfoliation and mechanical exfoliation. Rid of all impurities, the skin regains its radiance.
Every day, morning and evening, make-up or not, you must also remember to remove make-up from your face. The use of a high-tolerance micellar water gently cleanses the skin without attacking it. Your skin will be rid of all traces of make-up and all the particles of pollution present on the surface of the epidermis. Our Micelliance micellar water formulated without alcohol or perfume is suitable for even the most sensitive areas such as the eye contour.
- Nourish the skin once a week with a mask
After carrying out a meticulous exfoliation to remove all the impurities from your skin, it is advisable to apply a moisturizing mask to restore the hydrolipidic barrier of your skin. This type of treatment activates the production of collagen and elastin so that the skin regains suppleness and firmness.
- Adopt a good beauty routine
The skin is the largest organ of our body, it is our daily shield. Special care must therefore be taken! For it to fulfill its protective role perfectly, the skin must be pampered with a good hydration routine. Morning and evening, apply a good amount of moisturizer on perfectly cleansed skin.
You can also use an oil richer in active ingredients if your skin is both dry and dehydrated. In the evening, opt for “ booster ” products that will help your skin replenish its skin barrier. Whatever your skin type, it is preferable to use a treatment that is richer in active ingredients and fatter. Your skin will be perfectly hydrated and nourished when you wake up!
- Take care of sensitive areas
The eye contour and lips are particularly sensitive areas. Due to their fragility, they require more care. This care must be specific and adapted. Their use must be daily so that the effects last over time. Using a moisturizing eye contour and lip balm will allow you to keep a radiant smile and a fresh look at any time of the day.
- Do not forget to nourish the skin
The skin needs to be hydrated and nourished at the same time. This is why it is necessary to bring him care rich in water and lipids. In this way, the hydrolipidic film can cover its function well and protect the epidermis from external aggressions. For example, you can apply a moisturizer in the morning and use a nourishing treatment in the evening instead.
- Use products adapted to the skin type
No matter how much skincare you do, if it's not suited to whether you have dry skin, oily skin, sensitive skin, or blemished skin, nothing is going to work. At Nubiance, we offer products categorized by your skin type .
- Follow a healthy lifestyle
Like all organs of the body, the skin reacts to our way of life. Eating a balanced diet, keeping a good sleep pattern, avoiding stress , practicing regular physical activity are key actions that will limit skin damage.
- Avoid dehydration factors as much as possible
Sometimes, internal hydration and dermocosmetic treatments are not enough on their own to provide and maintain a good level of skin hydration. If your skin is constantly exposed to external aggressions, consider applying products that will protect it from these aggressions.
For example, in the event of strong exposure to the sun and therefore to UVA and UVB rays, we recommend applying a treatment incorporating sun protection or sunscreen adapted to your skin type. If you live in a busy city, consider an anti-pollution product. If you live in a cold region, etc. Finally, note that excessive consumption of alcohol and tobacco are also the cause of skin dryness. Limiting its consumption can be an excellent remedy to improve the general condition of your skin.
- Hydrate the skin differently
These days, there are plenty of products out there to give the skin a hydrating boost . For example, you can spray your face with a mist or water spray to reveal its radiance, apply a base or primer before the day cream so that it is better assimilated by the skin or even use a sheet mask loaded with active ingredients to soothe tight skin.
