If you are a frequent reader of this blog then you will know that we regularly discuss skincare routines. It’s important to have a routine that is properly crafted and followed to suit your skin. After all your skin is as unique as you and so should your skincare routine.
With the discussion of a skincare routine, one of the most important items to consider in the entire routine is your moisturizer. Did you take the time to purchase a moisturizer that is suited for your skin and will moisturize your skin properly or did you just grab the first one that you found while at the store?
We understand that you may not be able to afford the time to research, sample and repeat with different moisturizers until you find the right one, but can your skin afford using the wrong moisturizer? Also keep in mind that just like you, your skin will change and can experience different skin concerns through different periods of your life. Your skin complexion can change just because of the foods you eat (check-out this great article on the best foods for clear skin). Be prepared to modify your moisturizer as needed regardless of the skincare routine you follow after you moisturize.
There is no question that moisturizing your face will keep it looking vibrant, youthful and glowing throughout the day. The nutrients provided by the moisturizer help your skin to look it’s all day, every day, even if you suffer from eczema, dermatitis, acne or any other skin conditions.
As you can imagine with all the various moisturizers on the market there is a great discrepancy between the results you will receive. There is no doubt that not all moisturizers are created equally. Some in fact have harsh ingredients that will actually irritate any skin condition that you may have. We obviously don’t have to tell you that you will want to stay away from these types.
A product such as the Skindulgence Moisturizer has been developed by plastic surgeons to work with all skin types. It is gentle enough to use morning and night, as well as in and around the sensitive areas of your eyes. The only variance in using the Skindulgence Moisturizer will be the amount that you use based on skin type.
A little goes a long way, and many of our customers tell us that the first few times they used the product they had enough on their hands to do more than just their face. They moisturized their neck, hands, and elbows. The amount that is required for your skin type will be determined very simply within the first few time using the product.
Moisturizing your face goes well beyond just applying a topical moisturizer. As you can imagine, our natural oils come from within. Another major part of keeping our skin healthy is to keep our bodies properly hydrated. Our bodies are made up of over 75% water. Water within our body is used to maintain proper body temperature, transport nutrients throughout our body, flush out toxins and aids in digestion, just to name a few of the many things water does for our body.
Our blood requires proper hydration to carry out many of its important tasks. Low consumption of water on a daily basis changes the properties of our blood and negatively affects every aspect of our health including our skin.
Lack of proper hydration causes the biological functions of the skin to not operate at their optimum levels. The resulting look of our skin is then dull and dry. Dehydration can also accelerate the aging process as dry skin is one of the leading causes of wrinkles.
To avoid this drinking at least 3-4 cups of regular water per day will keep your skin and you properly hydrated. However, for many busy individuals, that amount is difficult to consume throughout their day. Their solution is to drink clustered water instead of regular drinking water.
Drinking one 8 oz. glass of clustered water is the equivalent to drinking 3-4 glasses of regular water. This is possible as the clustered water absorbs more rapidly into our trillions of cells and less is passed on.
The concentrated pomegranate product when mixed with either distilled water or regular drinking water will turn water into clustered water. It is then kept in the fridge and every morning simply drinking one glass of clustered water will provide your body and skin with the proper hydration needed for healthy-looking skin.
By approaching your moisturizing portion of your skincare routine from both the inside and outside of your body, you will have beautifully hydrated, glowing skin.
As always we appreciate your comments and emails and don’t forget to share this information with your friends so they too can have properly hydrated, glowing skin.
