The Importance Of Hydration For Healthy Skin

Did you know that our skin is the largest organ of our bodies? It’s true! 

And as the largest organ, our skin is tasked with a lot of important responsibilities such as protecting us from the elements, regulating our body temperature, and providing us with sensory information (just to name a few crucial functions). 

Just like any other vital organ, our skin requires proper care and nourishment to get it in great condition and function properly. 

One of the most important ways to keep skin healthy is to keep it properly hydrated. 

Keep reading to learn why skin hydration is so important and how you can incorporate it into your everyday skincare routine. 

Hydrated Skin = Healthy Skin

Our skin contains 64% of water. That significant portion of its composition is essential for it to maintain its elasticity, suppleness and overall health. 

When our skin is properly hydrated, it can perform its many vital tasks better. Hydrated skin has better protection against exposure to UV rays, pollution and extreme weather conditions. Hydration also helps maintain skin’s natural pH balance which helps prevent acne, dryness and irritation. 

On the other hand, dehydrated skin leads to a wide range of issues. When our skin is dehydrated, it not only becomes dry, it becomes dull and flaky, too. Dehydrated skin can worsen existing skin conditions such as rosacea and eczema, and it can increase the risks of premature aging. 

Above all, dehydrated skin is more susceptible to environmental damage. This makes it more difficult to repair and maintain over time. 

Ways To Keep Your Skin Hydrated 

While dehydrated skin can potentially lead to lots of issues, the good news is that keeping skin hydrated is pretty easy once you know what to do - and you do it regularly! 

Here are a few of the best ways to keep your skin properly hydrated:

Drink Lots Of Water 

"Drink the recommended 64oz. I generally like to make my lemon ginger water in the morning, you can add fruit or mint to make water have flavor. Coconut water is great too." - Danuta Mieloch

One of the easiest (and most effective) ways to keep your skin hydrated is to drink plenty of water throughout the day every day. Drinking eight glasses of water every day is a good goal. However, if you’re an active person who exercises every day or you live in a hotter and dry climate, you may want to drink more water each day. 

Eat More Water-Rich Foods

In addition to drinking the right amount of water each day, you can also increase your hydration levels by eating foods that have a higher water content such as fruits and vegetables. 

Some of the best options include melons (honeydew, cantaloupe and watermelon), celery, bell peppers, pineapple, lettuce, cucumbers, strawberries, and tomatoes. 

Avoid Using Harsh Cleansers 

Cleansing is essential to good skin health. Unfortunately, a lot of common and popular cleansers can strip skin of its natural oils and damage proteins and lipids. This damage can lead to a variety of skin issues including irritation, dryness and even damage to its protective barriers. 

Instead of using cleaners that may be too harsh (especially if you have sensitive skin), choose a cleanser that won’t risk damaging your skin and its protective moisture barrier. 

Choose Hydrating Skincare Products

Making hydrating skincare products the foundation of your everyday routine is a great way to keep your skin significantly hydrated, moisturized and healthy. 

Cerabalm from DANUCERA is one such product. Formulated with natural ingredients such as hibiscus oil, this multi-purpose balm hydrates skin by retaining moisture, helps maintain its natural protective barrier, and refreshes and repairs cells damaged by UV rays, harsh cleansers, pollutants and other external factors. 

Enjoy The Benefits Of Skin Hydration 

When you prioritize hydration by following the helpful information above and including Cerabalm in your daily skincare routine, you’ll enjoy an array of benefits, including: 

Increased Radiance 

Hydration is essential for keeping your skin naturally radiant and vibrant. This in turn allows you to enjoy a more youthful glow that lasts all day long. 

Reduced Wrinkles 

Fine lines and wrinkles are more pronounced when your skin is dehydrated. 

By keeping your skin hydrated with a proper routine supported by skincare products that moisturize, nourish and increase elasticity, you’ll help reduce these signs of aging and keep your skin looking more youthful. 

Improved Skin Texture

When your skin is properly hydrated, it improves the skin’s overall texture. 

This allows you to enjoy smoother, softer and more supple skin that is not only more pleasant to touch, it also enhances your appearance. 

Enhanced Skin Barrier Function

As we previously mentioned, your moisture barrier helps protect your skin from various external stressors and factors that can potentially damage your skin. Should your skin become dehydrated, the barrier becomes compromised leading to a variety of unfortunate skincare conditions. 

When your skin is suitably hydrated through an effective daily routine and exceptional skincare products, it maintains your moisture barrier and helps prevent your skin from becoming dry, irritated and damaged.
