Hollie on Hydration
Is your skin dehydrated? Hollie of Saks Beauty Squad is passionate about skincare and, in the first of a series, gives pro tips on hydration to get you through the tricky winter months.
Hollie says: “Dehydration is an interesting topic and more complex than I once thought – what factors contribute to a dehydrated skin? Lack of water consumption? YES. The primary reason our skin gets dehydrated, with an estimated 89% of the population not consuming enough water. But it’s not the only reason.
HYALURONIC ACID ROCKS
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of our skin and it holds our water. Unfortunately as we age, our reserves of hyaluronic acid deplete. This plays a direct role in how much water our skin can retain.
We also know that water can escape through the epidermis via Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TWEL) when our natural moisture factor is impaired. This is where the skin’s water escapes through the epidermis as there is no barrier to retain it. My advice to give your skin a good plump in a variety of ways simultaneously…
RECHECK YOUR DIET. TODAY.
Drink over two litres of water every day to aid digestion and flush out impurities. Easy-peasy! Also up your intake of raw fruits and veggies a these contribute to your water intake – as well as being the best things you can eat for general health. Also make sure you eat good fats – especially omega three. And although it can be tricky, why not try replacing most of your teas and coffees with non-caffeinated herbal tea – you’ll feel fabulous as well!
Ideally embark on a course of hyaluronic acid treatments. I recommend Power Hyaluronic or Mesofiller facials from Barcelona-based Skyendor. At home I’d go for their Power Hyaluronic Booster cream for intensive moisturisation. And the Advance Nutrition Moisture Lock supplement yields great results too.
I hope you’ve found this interesting and it gives you food for thought. Well, food for skin! Much love, Hollie.” xx
