Hydrated Skin and its benefits

When the skin is well-hydrated, it is more plump and resilient. … The job of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to hold water. When there is adequate water from inside and out the skin looks healthier and more vibrant and is less prone to wrinkles.

When you think of hydration it’s only natural to think of water. To hydrate something means to increase its water content. In relation to skin care, hydration means increasing the amount of water in your skin cells, which results in a healthy, smooth and plump complexion.

But remember, while your skin might have enough oil, it may be lacking in water, so it’s good to replenish skin’s hydration. And if it senses it doesn’t have enough hydration, it will produce more oil. Look for a moisturizer formulated for oily skin(preferably oil-free) to restore hydration and balance.

How does a Hydrating Facial Work?

A hydrating facial, as with any other facial, follows a sequence of steps that are done in a beauty spa or as your own skin care regimen at home. There are approximately 7 steps and are normally done in this order but may vary:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Tone
  3. Exfoliate
  4. Serum
  5. Massage
  6. Mask (SKIN SECRET’s aloe vera mould mask does wonders)
  7. Protect.

As a general overview, the facial begins with a cleansing of the skin to remove any dirt and impurities from the surface of the skin.

A toner is then gently swiped over the skin to remove any excess dirt and to prep the skin for better absorption of the product. The skin is exfoliated to remove dead skin cells, revealing a new and smooth layer of skin from underneath.

A hydrating serum is applied and massaged gently into the skin, penetrating the product deep into the skin. Next is to apply a layer of mask over the entire face and letting it set for 10 minutes so the skin can absorb all the nutrients and moisture.

Lastly, protect the skin with a hydrating moisturizer and eye cream to lock in all the hard work.

RAINS, SUN AND SKIN

The weather nowadays is unpredictable; it’s hot, sorry extremely hot and humid at one minute and it starts raining the next moment. It’s a tedious task to protect skin during such conditions…

SUN’S RAYS

The first and the most effective product during such weather conditions is the SPF. It is very important to know about it as it is one of the deciding factors for a healthy skin. There are two types of sun’s rays which reach the earth: UVB and UVA. UVB rays cause immediate damage to your skin. These rays are responsible for tanning or burning of your skin. UVA rays are those that are responsible for aging of your skin and are able to reach your skin through clouds, smog or glass.

WHAT IS SPF

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and refers to the theoretical amount of time you can stay in the sun without getting sunburned. For example, an SPF of 15 would allow you to stay in the sun 15 times longer than you could without protection. So, if your skin starts to redden in 20 minutes without sunblock, applying a product with SPF 15 increases that time by a factor of 15, meaning you could stay in the sun for 300 minutes. In addition, a higher SPF blocks out more rays — a product with an SPF of 15 will filter out approximately 93 percent of UVB rays; SPF 30 filters out about 97 percent.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT PRODUCT

Choosing the sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB. Look for products containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide because they protect against the full spectrum of UVA rays
