Natural Ways To Hydrate Your Skin
Today there are numerous products on the market, which have been designed to moisturise the skin, however there are several natural ways to hydrate your skin that you may find more appealing (and less expensive!).
Staying Hydrated With Fluids And Water Dense Foods
The easiest way to stay hydrated throughout the day is to consume a lot of fluids, with water being the best option. As a basic guideline, the European Food Safety Authority suggest an intake of 2 litres a day for women and 2.5 litres of water a day for men. You can accomplish this easily by carrying around one of our stylish 2.2 litre Gym Kegs wherever you go! If you get bored of drinking water, you can always spice up the flavour by adding some fruit and/or vegetables. Try adding apple or cucumber to the next glass of water that you drink and see what you think!
Hydrating foods such as watermelons, plums and cucumbers will also have a positive impact on your skin.
Apply Honey On Dry Areas Of Your Skin
As well as being very tasty, organic honey can be used to treat dry skin. Try applying some to any dry patches on your skin and leave it for five minutes. Once the time is up, simply wash off with lukewarm water. Honey possesses anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
Try Massaging Your Skin With Olive Oil
Yes it might sound strange, but massaging your skin with olive oil prior to washing can prevent your skin from drying out. Olive oil is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids, which will keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
Take Cooler Baths And Showers
Whilst taking a hot shower can be a great way to soothe aching muscles and warm up, there is evidence that it may strip away natural oils from your skin. Try taking cooler baths and showers to keep your skin hydrated.
