Why It's Important to Keep Your Skin Hydrated

Why It's Important to Keep Your Skin Hydrated

Hydrated skin goes a long way towards that youthful, fresh and healthy glow-from-within look women desire. It’s important to keep skin hydrated not just for aesthetics reasons, but for health reasons. Well-hydrated skin is healthier and less prone to irritation, dryness and breakouts for a flawless look.

At Charette Cosmetics, we carry a line of natural and effective skincare products that will help you stay hydrated and maintain the youthful, hydrated skin you desire.

Why Hydrated Skin Is Important

From preventing dryness to easing the look of fine lines and wrinkles, hydrated skin not only looks and feels better, but also it is easier to maintain a healthy glow with less breakouts if you stay hydrated. Here are a few important reasons why you should keep your skin hydrated:

Prevents Dryness And Flakiness

When your skin is dehydrated, it can become dry, flaky, and rough. This can be particularly noticeable on your face, where dry patches can be unsightly and difficult to conceal with makeup.

Eases Fine Lines And Wrinkles

Dehydrated skin can make fine lines and wrinkles appear more prominent, which can make you look older than you actually are. This is another reason why it’s important to keep your skin hydrated, because it can help to plump up your skin and reduce the signs of aging.

Improves Skin Texture

Hydrated skin has a smooth and supple texture, while dehydrated skin can look dull and rough. Keeping your skin hydrated can help improve skin’s texture and make it look healthier and more youthful.

Helps Balance Oil Production

When your skin is dehydrated, it can actually produce more oil in an attempt to compensate for the lack of moisture. This can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. It’s important to keep your skin hydrated, because it balances its oil production and reduces the risk of acne and other skin problems.

Enhances Skin Barrier Function

Your skin's barrier function helps to protect it from external aggressors like pollution, UV rays, and bacteria. When your skin is dehydrated, its barrier function can become compromised, leaving it more vulnerable to damage. Keeping your skin hydrated can help to enhance its barrier function and protect it from harm.

Best Ways To Keep Skin Hydrated

  • Wear Sunscreen Every Day
    Sun damage can dry out your skin and cause premature aging more so than most lifestyle factors. This is why it’s important to keep your skin hydrated and protected with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day, even when it's cloudy outside.
  • Drink Plenty of Water
    Staying hydrated from the inside out is important for the health and appearance of your skin. Aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.
  • Eat a Balanced Diet
    Along with drinking plenty of water, eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats can help to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
  • Use a Gentle Cleanser
    Harsh cleansers can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and dehydrated. Use a gentle, hydrating cleanser that is formulated for your skin type.
  • Apply a Moisturizer
    After cleansing, apply a hydrating moisturizer to your face. Look for a product that contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or ceramides, which help to lock in moisture.
  • Use a Humidifier
    If you live in a dry climate or spend a lot of time in air-conditioned or heated spaces, using a humidifier can help to add moisture to the air and keep your skin hydrated.
  • Avoid Hot Showers
    Hot water can strip your skin of its natural oils and leave it dehydrated. Instead, take lukewarm showers and baths.
  • Limit Alcohol and Caffeine
    Alcohol and caffeine can be dehydrating, so it's best to consume them in moderation.

Protect Your Skin from the Sun with Protect + Preserve

Exposure to the sun can damage your skin and lead to dehydration. Using sunscreen daily with at least SPF 30 can help protect your skin from harmful UV rays and prevent moisture loss. It’s important to keep your skin hydrated, so choosing a facial sunscreen with ingredients like hyaluronic and lactic acid can help keep the skin moisturized.

This is why Protect + Preserve is a terrific addition to your skincare routine for hydrated, glowing skin. We designed our sunscreen with lactic and hyaluronic acids, and a clinically preferred concentration of niacinamide helps to visibly brighten areas of discoloration and blemishes. It is a lightweight, gentle sunscreen with SPF 50 for superior protection and supple, smooth skin.
